Husky, I am observing this trend right from Panda 1. Blogs or any other content hosted on google servers aren't affected by any of these animals. This holds true to this day. They obviously seem to be excluding blogspot, youtube etc. from their quality checks.
This exclusion is very obvious.
Hardly a granular algo is it? Seriously, Google is becoming evermore the black hat playground. Google's SERPs display the opposite to what their guidelines say they will reward. The guidelines say one thing, the SERPs reward another.
