Well, my rankings have inched up slightly but noticeably.
Of course there's no telling if it's correlated positively. But it looks like so far at least it didn't hurt.
I've got a friend who's got a similiar site. He said he'd wait and see, but if this sticks, in a few months he may consider doing the same thing. If he sees the same results, that'd be real interesting.
Too bad if it's true. 10's of thousands of pages of unique (and reasonably valuable) content potentially removed and Google reacts positively. Smells like a flaw in the algo right there. Like maybe there should be a bonus if you've got large volumes of unique content.
