What in blazes is going at Google?
Did a search for cleaning furniture fabric, and I'm getting ridiculous sites with horribly spun crap. The stuff reads like random words plucked from a thesaurus.
"Learn to stay on top of the furnishings and possess it searching just like your day an individual brought that with such upholstery washing ideas...Initial vacuum all areas with the material protect such as the cushions, sides, again and also hands."
This is the "original" content that Google seeks and ranks on page one? I may as well buy spin software, generate gobbledygook and slop it all over the net. I might get lucky and land on page #1.
In another search I'm getting real estate for sale on a street in Georgia that happens to match the keywords I searched for.
Are these fools at Google trying to drive away traffic?
A lot of us have noticed the same thing. They removed our content to provide us with these 'quality' search results.... Bing and Yahoo now get all my searches. Google search ruined itself, in my opinion.
Time to let your fingers do the talking, move to Yahoo or Bing.
