If big brands don't have an advantage, then ask stub pages, yahoo answers and ehow must ranking due to sheer editorial excellence :rolls eyes:
It is obvious to anyone that has been monitoring data over the last several years that large brands receive a significant advantage, from shorter penalties and glossed over penalties to rankings for terms they aren't remotely relevant for and nearly fixed page 1 for tough phrases when their profiles are weaker than non-brands. Oh yeah, and googlers will actually look I to allegations of big brands when something funky happens. If one our smaller sites has the same issue, we're branded as evil spammers first and have to prove we aren't...two-faced policies.
