I found this article via the Warrior Forum. Google is going to be cracking down on the amount of spam on the search engines, and it might be targeting content mills, too.

Just checked it out.
So, is this good or bad for HP?
It's good for sites that promote non spam content. I don't know how much duplicate content Hubpages contains, but it probably is not enough to cause a huge issue.

That we have to do here in cleaning this site from spammer , if you find any spam profile flag it !
As they say, content is king, legitimate websites will float to the top, poor quality will sink to the bottom, its just that simple
I hope their "discoverer" works soon! Its getting NASTY to search for almost anything! so, that'll be real good - I reallly am looking forward to less spam. everywhere.
Search engine spam is getting out of control, so if Google can put something in place to effectively filter the true spam, then it should be a good thing. We'll have to reserve judgment until we see how it works, though.

I found several URLs in search that would have contained copied hubs from my account but when I click those links the pages no longer exist. These copied hubs I never filed DCMA complaints for so was confused as to why they no longer exist. What I did was go through the Google removal...

There has been a lot of discussion in the last few days about HP changing the rules and people being un-featured or even un-published for spam and over promotional activity. So I just want to add my thoughts......Whether people (writers) like it or not most of their traffic will be coming from...
