I'm leery of anything Google says or does right now, but if Google wants us to use this technique, then maybe they won't smack it down.
This part was not reported correctly in the WSJ article. From what I know that's not how it went down and Google just wasn't in the mood to debate that with the WSJ.
This reminds me of the last time I was here (when I was involved in the Overstock affair with the WSJ). I am sure we all know better than to trust everything we read out there. Both stories contained some incorrect assumptions and this one is no different.
Google did NOT suggest this as a work around and I am NOT either. I get the sense that Panda runs seperately than the 'at the time of discovery' algo set. Which means, that once Panda goes over the new SDs, the same issues might occur.
