Gosh, I'm glad you posted that link. Not for the article, which seems to say "I have no idea what this is about so I'll just pass it along". But because some cursory as-long-as-I'm-here exploration of the site led me straight to the Best Ever headline: Microsoft Tells Apple Users... etc.
Uhm. If we were in the habit of taking Microsoft's advice, we wouldn't be Apple users would we?

Yes, the article isn't very informative, but it does explain a little in English with a link to the Google Japan Webmaster Central Blog [googlewebmastercentral-ja.blogspot.jp] (Japanese) post.

|This place, (I'm focusing on that is returned to the user as a result of better quality in the google search the site one of the recent announcement , 2 ). We will inform the search for in Japanese, but this time, since the algorithm implementing changes to improve the search ranking of particularly high quality site. |
Google has received a lot of feedback from our every day users. There were a number of opinions on the site with your own content, but buried in the sites that are composed of copies from other sites, in the opinion EVO from users in Japan, and difficult to find, among others. To address this problem, this update algorithm was performed to show changes more aggressively with the original content site. This change is expected to affect about 5% of the Japanese search results.
In addition, as we have to tell you before, affiliate sites without original content and added value, regardless of the change of this algorithm webmaster guidelines becomes a breach, it may lower the search ranking. In addition, the content that is unauthorized duplication Please note that it may be a violation of guidelines as well.
The future, so that the user makes it easier to find the original content useful, Google will continue to promote the improvement of the algorithm. Questions and comments regarding this change Webmaster Help Forum Please send to.
That was not quite as easy to cut & paste as I expected ;)
The Japanese for "Google" is "Google". They don't even put it into katakana.

I hope it works better than the English scraper algorithm which attributed some scraper that stole my 2006 indexed content in 2010 as the author and made mine supplemental.

Google told me it is not like the Scraper algo, so I am updating my post.

Thanks for the update. So this is an entirely different update than the English one. I guess that makes sense as the target is Japanese content. Google is pushing Japanese webmasters/SEOs to make better quality content. Sounds familiar. ;)
