    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.

        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.

        Several smaller spam sites are panicking now, and are asking users to remove duplicate content. Some of the less reputable forums are also seem to have a lot of scared members as well!

    As they say, content is king, legitimate websites will float to the top, poor quality will sink to the bottom, its just that simple smile

    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.
