...and ehow will either be given a pass, or algos will be "adjusted", so as not to hurt them..
This has been bothering me for some time. Google's algo's are a collection of biases for or against something. It's become my opinion that these biases clearly favor some sites, some of which clearly make Google a lot of money. eHow content is one of the web's dirty secrets that must have been noticed by Google long ago. But eHow and sites just like it emerge unscathed from each and every update.
I can't help but wonder if the bias of the algo was adjusted to benefit some sites over others and whether the sites receiving the boost are better financial partners for Google than those those that got the shaft.
