    Google Algorithm Multiple Changes 2011

    Matt Cutts posted “we’re evaluating multiple changes that should help drive spam levels even lower, including one change that primarily affects sites that copy others’ content and sites with low levels of original content.”

    The change is supposed to help the site that posted the original content instead of the sites that scrape of copy articles.

    It looks like they are gearing up to go after autoblogs.

    That falls in line with their recent policy statement about 'unoriginal content' and AdSense.

  3. I'm liking their updated algorithm my site now ranks #2 in the US for my most targeted keyphrase, only beaten by yahoo answers.

    SCORE!

    I guess they're fed up with the same cr*p all over the net, and lets face it, a lot of it is cr*p, poor quality useless garbage and who wants that copied. No-one can now say they weren't warned either, they even put a bit in their January newsletter asking people to grass up such sites:
    Unoriginal Content
    Did you know that sites using software to generate automated information or otherwise unoriginal content is a serious violation of our policies? Read our webmaster quality guidelines, and if you find violating sites within our network, feel free to report them to us.
    Tbh I always worry when I get an email from google, newsletter or otherwise, but then I've had a few too many of "... add serving has been disabled to to your site [whatever] domain..." so I'm not going to rock their boat. I've never had an auto blog but I did consider doing one or two just to try it. I shan't be now that's for sure.

    It's a pity there's no other ad publisher competition that's in the running and pays as well, google has that one sewn up big time. They've got us by the short and curlies, all we can do is obey. Resistance is futile.
    If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a terrible warning...

    I for one do not believe google will drop auto blogs from the searches.

    If so, huffpo and a whole slew of them would be out of business.

    Now, for auto blogs, there really are two types:
    One that takes the FULL article from somewhere.
    Those I see google going after.

    The other just summarize an article.
    I just don't see google hurting these types.

    Again, Matt says something and SEO people go gaga!
    Am sure if I wasted time on finding more information on this, there would be a lot of misinformation out there (forums, blogs...but mostly forums).

    Wow. Congrats. You're the first person who I heard is happy with the change.
    As for me, I think this is just another reason to stop chasing the algorithm and focus on quality content and quality links.

    The only effect I have directly noticed is that eHow.com rankings show significant improvement.

    I hear that the same happened to StackOverflow, but I am not watching their SERPs.

    Heck, Matt's whole "update" could have been nothing but hard-coding those two sites as the original sources of content -- which is completely untrue.

    What a bummer, I was hoping that sites like eHow, ezinearticles etc would be addressed. They're full of cr*p content.

    I am with you MrToad. I think of course it is important to be interested in the algorithm and how it works, but ultimately it tends towards content. All the algorithm aims to do is to rank quality content and even if google still has trouble distinguishing what is genuine, that is their ultimate goal. So it is a strong bet that if you create quality interesting content you will prevail.

    On another note I heard hubpages.com was supposedly getting effected by this, has anyone heard if that is true?
