I wonder why they would look for a fix for this algo?
With all the websites and webmasters in the world, very few have bothered to post on the official complaint thread at Google, and even here, there really aren't that many members posting about it.
Might seem like a lot, because there are several related threads here, but count up the individual members, and it's probably not that many.
So toss in an equal number from other forums, heck make that 10 times as many. Still not all that many as a hard number.
Even though I got nailed in this update, I think if I was Google, and saw every complaint as valid, I'd still have to think the Panda/Farm/Farmer/whatever-the-flavor-of-the-day-is update came out pretty well.
So that begs the question, why fix it?
Is their traffic down, are their other metrics showing something we are not seeing?
