* Ok i tried to post the table but it didn't worked :)

so here is the summary actually.

In these good days of Panda-nization we have heard a lot about "quality". People seems to be taking the word "quality" as a synonym of Panda Update but the big question still unanswered was, WHAT THE (hell) is QUALITY?

Bill Slawski posted a very good post on "QUALITY" today at his wonderful blog and its worth to read to get the idea of what is a credible and quality website?

Walkman, you're right...searching with or without quotes, any sentence from the third paragraph, places Matt's page at position 3 or higher for his own article. That should be an eye opener to Google.

It's interesting that the site-wide factor for Panda can hit the content's original author as poor quality content, but that same content when aggregated on another site doesn't cause the aggregator a problem. Probably because the aggregator has such a variety of content on their site.
.
Your site is out so after that someone else has to rank. That's my theory.
If you have time to kill go over there and see the stupidity and arrogance of Google's 'Bionic posters.'

Well, they got one right. So Panda can measure 'truthiness' on some sites. It should also be an eyeopener for some jerks here that assume that all our sites suck and we just b*tch and moan all day, without improving our sites.

Walkman, I Just hope they see your example here. Might have to have an entirely new thread about how scrapers outrank Matt Cutts' original content before they will notice. :)
