Look out blog farms, look out you oinkers, cause Google is a gunning for you.
You grey hat marketers, Google has set its sights on better content for consumers, which believe it or not is really a good thing, but how much of a good thing is it really.
Many websites and even a lot of publishers have begun to move toward a strict indoctrination of what it means when you say quality content is of value.
What is valuable to the reader?
Well folks the news is in and perhaps even the fix is in, google has announced that it is officially and allegedly going to demode many websites, that are using techniques that they (google) does not like, and for the most part we agree, the practice of scraping content from other websites has been frowned upon by google, however, it is only very recently that the community of developers has begun to see something concrete from Google about what is expected from a well behaved and politically correct website.
Is this the end of the Auto Blogging business model?
We sure hope so, because too long have the content scrapers been lurking around the dark corners of the internet looking for content to publish.
So if you have been playing around and taking content from other websites, look out because the time is coming where you may find that your website will not be getting as much traffic as it used to get.
What can you do to create a better website?
What can you do to develop better content?
What can you do to enhance the user experience at your website?
These are questions that you need to ask and get an answer to them, then you must implement those answers in a meaningful way.
