Also, with the ad model a majority of people know that you are trying to get something out of them - a purchase, a signup etc - so there is a lesser level of trust there but if they find you through organic whilst they are in the research stage and you provide good info and value, then there is trust built and you get more sales.

I don't think simply showing an author bio is going to achieve much of anything. John Mueller in the last hangout addressed this issue and in his typical fashion responded that there is no specific way for linking to authors bio's and that one should do this in such a away that is specific to one's niche/needs.

My long articles, with proper steps and screenshots, positive feedback from readers have been outranked by Reddit posts with no comments
And with every Update when google pushes more ads and own stupid content it will be more and moee CO2.
reddit (garbage) is finally on all top search on google..
As I mentionned alraedy, my site, which is a message board, gained 20% of human traffic with this update. And as I theorized, may be posts look more natural to Google, than an article written with SEO in mind.

I did not lose rank, I lost traffic, that's an important distinction
Did this core update take into account the offline political views of the site owners? It's a valid question given what's happening in social media. How could the SEO community even begin to figure that out?

I'd be curious to know the political affiliation of the owners who have lost traffic to see if there is any quarelation.
