Google Panda Versus Suite 101 Algorithm Changes Disgruntle Authors
Hubpages Has Taken Action To Improve Standing With Google
Hubpages has taken a strategic step forward after the impact reduced views and ratings with the Google Search Engine. And, if you write for Hubpages, please follow these instructions before the month of July ends to retain your brand and user name.
Hubpages will transition to creating 'subdomains' for each author. That means your good works will be graded and noted by Google. Hopefully, as a result Hubpages will be in the good graces of SEO, as Google recognizes 'people' within the community, rather than spammed popular topics by unoriginal poorly written articles.
Good Writers Get Bumped
Suite 101 got their writers hands tied in early 2011
Like Ezine, Hubpages, Scribd, About.com, EHow.com and many other platforms where authors express themselves, demonstrate their writing talents, and educate the public on a variety of niche topics, Suite 101 provides a work space for great authors. They are concerned much more with quality, as opposed to quantity.
Just when things are going along smoothly, ReadWriteWeb gives the lowdown on the statistics as Suite 101 climbs the content ladder, "BAM!" Google changes the algorithms and their readership plummets 94%. Is that possible? Was that tricky manipulation? What's going on there?
The comments on the ReadWriteWeb blog posted by Suite 101 authors demonstrate that the requirements for quality work requires authors to fulfill certain steps on each article. Hubpages expects authors to post original work and we get nailed if the copy has lifted material or content from other areas of the net. Over at Suite 101 they actually have editors checking each piece for accuracy and literacy. Pretty neat, but I bet also frustrating to jump the hurdles.
By changing the algorithm, Google has purposely manipulated the search engine ratings to raise the ranking of eHow. What do you say to that? We know that everything that runs in the background can change what comes up on the public computer screens. Just like the war over at YouTube when they started to feature their paying customers and star videos, the little guy lost their visibility.
- *According to Sistrix, Suite basically lost 94% of its rank.

My Feelings About The Google Changes
Please Give Your Feedback
Search Engine RoundTable
An update on this hubpage comes from other writers on the google changes to algorithms and Panda. Many recommendations on how you can repair your Hubpages or other blogs can be found at Search Engine Roundtable.
Suite 101 is not the only loser. Hubpages ranks right up there with many other "content mills" as they call us. I think they better take a closer look at the top notch writers, the experience and the training that many of the authors have to be adding to the body of work on the internet. We are in the 5 top losers category:
I will say, that the trash and rehashed, poorly worded, grammatically incorrect and down right poor spelling on many pages abound. But, I don't believe the majority fall into that category.
