Is Google biased? Should we trust Google anymore?
Google has applied their new algorithm. I am surprised to know that it didn't make any damage to eHow! Rather, the new algo benefited ehow. Matt Cutts in his blog said that google is targeting low quality and shallow content. Most of the content at eHow is shallow and contains around 200-250 words! Is Google biased? What do you think?
ehow seems to have low competition on its niche hence it doesn't affect much. News scrapers seemed to suffer more of the new algorithm as it prefers news entirely original more than scraped ones.

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic plunges for many hubbers? See link...

Looks like Google made another algo change earlier this week. My traffic rose about 25% on my main HP account around this time, so I'm guessing the update was the cause. My traffic is still low by historical standards (down by more than a third from the start of the year), but I...
