---- Matt Cutts: Google Algo Change Targets Dupe Content

what about content farms? At this point I think all contents farm out there will stay strong
Welcome to the forums, assabia. I agree with you - the key being your words, "at this point."
This cannot be the only change that Google rolls out. In fact, Matt's comments on the linked thread that started this discussion make it clear that more will come. They don't have the scraper thing right at this point, to say nothing of content farms.
If I could only have one, I would greatly prefer to see a better algo for identifying the original and differentiating it from the scraper, the syndication site, and the article spinner. Seems like identifying the origin of content is a foundational step in search, if they care for real about intellectual property.
But I prefer to see both: fix the scraper/spinner thing AND get the content farms out of the top. I still don't know how they'll target content farms effectively, though.
