that would have every two bit webmaster designing sites for Panda and we'd all be back to where we started.
I don't get this attitude. If Panda is about rewarding "quality", then how can it can be a bad thing if "two bit webmasters" start designing quality sites? Won't the public come out ahead?
Now admittedly none of us know what Google means by "quality", but assuming THEY know (a big assumption), then it follows that the web will be a better place if they clearly define the term "quality" once & for all, and then back up that definition with consistency.
Unless of course "quality" is just their cover story, and in actuality there's an entire other agenda at work. We don't know what we don't know, so as far as I'm concerned, if they won't spell it out, then ANY explanation for this disaster that is on the table is equally possible, be it "quality", or "profits".
