For over 10 years we were considers (by apparent rank) to be the good content, now overnight that changes.
Read and weep/laugh. This is what one of the guys from Google thinks describes a high quality website:
To me, it is as if he is just describing Wikipedia and does not even understand the diversity and complexity of the web. The web is really about people not data. It is a record of their interactions, hopes, dreams and businesses.
Would you recognize this site as an authoritative source when mentioned by name?
Does the site have duplicate, overlapping, or redundant articles on the same or similar topics with slightly different keyword variations?
Using a term over and over in articles is a lot different than spun material that is just basically the same story again and again.
This would mean that the Wall Street Journal should be dinged, right? How many times do they use the term Dow Jones Industrial Average or the same ticker symbols in their articles. Every day they produce nearly the same content with different numbers in them.It is also more complex when it comes to newspaper sites as many use wire services and the same article will end up in many newspapers. And journalists will often lift large sections of stories citing the original article.
