I see tons of thin, I mean really thin URLs rank with this algo change, in the local business area sites which only have an address and a google map, there is no semantic at all. Not a single sentence throughout the whole site with thousands of URLs! Just think about it.
Therefore I have hesitated to remove thinner URLs.
Google algo can't evaluate uniqueness. Probably in 2100+ but not now. This is not AI, this is just a plain dumb algo change.
It is the same as with the -950 re-ranking, tweaking a single part of the site will release it from jail. It's just plain stupid BS therefore they hide all the specifics for this change.
BTW, you don't need value, you just need to adapt to this change.
Let's play Sherlock Holmes and finally game their dumb algo changes a 5 year old could code.
