Many of us are not in the financial position to shoot/edit/encode/upload quality videos
When video started taking off as a clearly important marketing component, I (along with several of my small business clients) had a similar reaction. But you know, as I invested the time to get educated in it, I found it didn't take nearly the full-scale production ability that I feared.
This leads me to think it may be related to this patent: [webmasterworld.com...] in a lateral sense, to filter low-demand or low-result content out of the Panda algo, until it becomes mainstream at the content farm level.
Thanks - that is a solid observation, in my book. Remember how the second iteration of Panda was said to go "further into the long tail"? Why bother running an intensive algo over sites that aren't even in a market niche that has much content in the first place?
