Google is becoming increasingly smarter at identifying better written content.
This statement is exactly contrary to many of the webmaster reports in this thread.
I have to agree. Google's perception of good content these days seems to be taken right out of the facebook and twitter handbooks.
As for long tails, I know some of you die hards still cannot accept that Google would deliberately damage the organics to push Adwords but surely this is a prime example of just that sort of tactic? Google have spent years making Adwords relevant and ensuring that nearly everybody has to buy them. Google's PPC ads are more relevant than their organic counterparts now.
I was under the impression that SEO had not been killed off by the latest changes. But seeing traffic falling for items ranking #1 in organics is making me feel that SEO for commercial sites is becoming pointless.
... traffic to WebmasterWorld has dropped. What more of a signal do you need of Google's intentions! ;)
