I have an eleven year old hobby web site that has a lot of content that can be found on many other websites.
My site gets many kudos and a load of traffic from social sites, not because of the uniqueness of the content, but by how a few content sources are logically paired together, and organized in a way that makes for a pleasurable user experience.
Google mostly ignores the site, generating 5% of the traffic and the rest comes from social sites.
Content is king? Google is all? We all really need to rethink these old standards.
