Just can't believe what is going on currently in search. Amazed as to how SMART the PhD guys are at GooglePlex. Junk Ehow, and HubPages are ranking better than my content which was 100% white hat since 2001, this is what I get to play according to Google Guidelines.
For love of God Google are you blind? Why Ehow is beating my site done by someone I know in real life who holds something recognizable?
Scraped content is ranking #1 I am ranking 15th, Ehow/Hubpages articles are ranking 8th and 9th? I thought you wanted quality white papers? Isn't 5000+ words written by someone who is expert on the topic worth it?
For another main site of ours, I see the guy on top providing no value to the end user 100% paid link profile that a stupid kid like me can spot and he is now ranking#1.
This global update has affected a lot of US searches as well. I thought the update for US results were done a while back.
