I'm sort of reminded that A students become professors, B students become consultants and C students make all the money. In our game, C students aren't bothered by disseminating less than Pulitzer level content, spun to sidestep duplication and regurgitated to play the numbers game, as long as it makes money today, this week or this month. Five years from now, Google might kick all the C students into purgatory or worse, but it ain't doing so today.
For my part, I have some professorial quality stuff out there (for over ten years), some B student stuff along with C type, mill run money machines. Diversification spells wisdom, and pays the mortgage. If, in five years, Google demands A student equivalency, then that's what I'll do.
My hat's off, though, to all those devoted to making the web a better place. Currently, I don't possess much of an altruistic edge. You have my admiration, and, I wish you good luck.
