That blog post is the signal for the tabloidisation of the web.
It pretty much says if you are loud-mouthed, opinionated and controversial you'll do well in the Google algorithm.
Absolutely - brilliant point to bring up. Not that there isn't already an abundance of sensationalism happening simply for link bait, but this totally perverts the judgment of what actually has value for users, and what's legitimate and what isn't.
