@aakk - Didn't Google get DARPA funding in their early start up days? Anything is possible!
I was thinking, perhaps my blog is poisoning my main site.
I guess I completely overlooked that and the thousands of outdated shareasale links from their useless datafeed. That would constituent dup content so following the logic of this algo update, it's probably ranking all that stuff to the top. That's where my zombies are going...those are all dead end pages! Just got done whacking my blog down from 3800 pages to 196. Time for some fresh meat.
Resubmitted a new blog sitemap...
We'll see what happens now. zzzz
