and where is Penguin and Panda to penalize the scraper site with their thin content and black hat webspam?
If Panda and Penguin EVER once worked as advertised, I must've taken that day off and missed it. ;)
I think maybe a lot of current problems with the SERPs might be solved by Google just dialing down the "trust" factors. They just don't seem to have them quite right. For example, being the original publisher of content that has been duplicated ought to count for a lot in terms of trust, but it doesn't seem to. And while having a trustworthy result from Amazon at or near the top is often sensible, having 14 of them... not so much.
