The title to this post says it all.This update affects blogs with adsense, but aren't big google partners.Apparently this doesn't seem to affect the high profile content farms that google trust, as if I were to post examples I could slap them here but don't want to do it because of all that has happened here in the recent past.
It is clear now.Google meant blogs for content farms but there are exceptions to this and they are the big players.
for many queries I see 3, 4 or 5 results from the same few big content farms, for some "keyword phrases". There is no real content in those pages, as they are all auto generated search pages for keyword variations.
If this update isn't affecting them, it is because they are considered to be good by google but not because those pages are of good quality.
Finally we have it here, the answer to what google were referring to as content farms
"BLOGS that aren't big enough and using adsense"
