For instance ehow has pages and pages on how to boil an egg.
But didn't ehow come out as a winner? I am certainly seeing it a lot more in the SERPs...
They dropped in Panda II. For some terms I watch, they used to hold the top three positions with their "multiple versions of the same page". Now they have just one entry at #5.
I think hubpages has similar issues to eHow with umpteen pages on the same subjects, all worded differently so as to be "unique", but all essentially saying the same thing.
P.S. I know some people are taking the SERPs we are seeing just now as gospel, but I think we are in some sort of transition, with a lot of testing going on.
