"Gone are the days where we could build a checklist and trust the tradition of analysis that had been dome for us by others. Why is that? The algo is so complex that we cannot effectively test the whole thing, reverse engineer it, in other words. How can we when every market niche, every kind of site, even every type of keyword may be treated differently!"
http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/terms/Not well stated by Google but one gets the drift.
"You may not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of our Services or included software, nor may you reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit those restrictions or you have our written permission."
If you think creating a weak article of 200 words is a shortcut to ranking in Google you might want to do more reverse engineering.
I do not think those pages I am referring to have an "advanced" reading level.Please use Google's assessment of reading level for the pages using: "Search Tools", "All Results", "Reading Level". I definitely wasn't implying I agreed with Google's reading level ratings, just that they may impact rankings for certain types of websites, pages, and queries.
