Horrid results... many SERPs are just the same site over and over and over again like example.com?page=1 example.com?page=2, example.com?page=3. I search a travel destination and 30 of the top 50 results are different pages [from one particular site].
Just do a search for "adsense" the top 16 results all have the same meta title "Google AdSense – Maximize revenue from your online content". I haven't seen results this bad since the days of Netscape... actually, Netscape was BETTER than this. I think the entire update should be classified as a bug.
Sorry Google, these results are just plain BAD... and annoying. Perhaps instead of "Penguin" you should call it "scorched earth" or perhaps the "throw the baby out with the bathwater" update. Thoughts of New Coke and Windows Vista are coming to mind.
I did get a free $100 coupon for AdWords. Timing could be coincidental, but...
[edit reason] no specific sites, please [/edit]
