Panda rolls in, G profits go through the roof, many small publishers start crying foul as theirs go through the floor. It has to be related somehow, regardless of what Ryan Moulton says.
The short of it: How much our sites will make Google doesn't make a difference when the algorithm is applied to your site but the system itself is designed to ensure that some sites make money for Google. The two are distinctly different.
All of our sites are yielding content to help google generate something of perceived value on which it can place things that generate income. Google places happens to be my pet peeve but there are many ways G makes money on our content.
