any idea how long you've been seeing these types of results?
Almost immediately after Panda 2.1 was unleashed.
The Chinese ones are all relative trade widget directories with multiple company listings, the US ones are large widget trade wholesale and retail sites, again they are trade applicable but owing to the weight of my widgets totally useless results.
Sometimes there's the odd Indian trade directory site, again applicable, but for Joe Public purchaser totally inappropriate. Before Panda 2.1 in .com/co.uk/com.au/ca/ie, Google had a healthy spread of quality retail, wholesale and prime producer sites under each tld, now many of them have simply been wiped out or well-buried.
Just why they have done this is what puzzles me more than anything, it certainly has not affected my real world B&M businesses, in fact we're busier than ever!
