10 year old site handled personally be me at all times. Home improvement field. 98% of the content on the site is written by me based with on the job experience (getting sweaty and dirty) Others are contributors that work their butts off in a labor intensive field. Some major sections go into detail in how to do certain procedures, others are information about a certain application, product or tool, once again from my personal field experience. I am not a sit behind the desk kind of guy that does copy research. My research is on the job experience. Did quite well with Google. One major setback in 2004, returned to normal one month later.
Yes many Ehow links …about 140 at last count. Approximately 100 sites recognized as copying content six months ago. Links? Low by standards mentioned here. About 800 over 400 sites.
I think anyone could classify the content as being unique. After all how many people in this crazy game would go to lengths to actually learn about a business first hand? People are generally lazy and it takes far too much work especially in my trade. Traffic loss 38% Good living and can wait this one out hoping for adjustments. I am patient.
