Google SAID Farmer/Panda penalized content farms
Do you have a link to an official Google comment saying that?
I guess it's not official, but cutts said this in the wired.com interview.
...scrapers were sometimes outranking original sites, and we actually made a change to improve that. We heard complaints about what the outside world called content farms; we had a change that we were working on for months and months that just launched.
oddly enough, when I search that snippet of text on G, copied or scraped content shows up first...
