They rolled out Panda to hit these sites, and they are dominating search results now and the "good" sites, who've worked hard for years have been penalised.
Google's view of the Web seems to have become more like network TV (a few major general-interest channels) and less like cable TV (a large number of niche channels). But that may be less about Google's intent than about the ability of sites with millions of pages to skew Google's search results through sheer "link clout."
Lately, the SERPs have been showing a mixture of obvious (and barely adequate) megasite results and really weird (and completely inadequate) EMD results for the informational phrases that I typically search on. It's as if Comcast had introduced a new Basic Cable plan with the major networks and a random sampling of community-access channels.
