Panda increased their turnover by 30% within 3 months
You're talking to the king of conspiracy theorists here, but i think in order to be productive we should hone in and focus on the very powerful feedback Matt has given us. Focus on the big issues, the big points, and let's keep out of the sand.
Matt very deliberately conveyed his conversation away with Eric Enge, about specific mention of there being no direct link to "commercial revenue motives" aka "advertisers" and revenue. Indirectly, it likely exists due to the employment of Google assetts on pages. Matt and his team and the quality team do not control this area. You have to believe him and the other cross checked remarks leaked from Googlers involved with the algo.
But let's be productive - this is a great thread opportunity to discuss the key points. If you miss these you miss a big opportunity of understanding. Interviews of this quality are rare. Don't let's burn it.
