Lately I have been reading about views on googles recent changes with algorithm. I for one like I am sure many others, welcome this change, bring it on I say. Infact I would go so far to say that taking into consideration googles constant drive to provide quality, unique and diverse content, any changes and updates to make this possible is surely for the best, now and in the future.
Some may view it as changing the goal posts but if we are to continue to rely of the world wide web as a relevant source of quality, useful information, and not diluted, edited and regurgitated content we must accept that constant adjustments will need to be continually made.
Google said their recent algorithm change will reduce ranking for low quality sites and increase rankings for sites with original, unique content with information containing in depth reports and analysis. Google in the past have said that their attention has shifted to content farms. Content farms can submit thousands of poor quality articles and information daily.
In the world we live in today we have diverse people with diverse views and diverse opinions, and google strive to reflect, condensed genuine relevant content, not mass produced manufactured content.
Having said all that I for one realize how much effort, time and research can go into building a decent little website, websites which have unique content, therefore I do feel that google have a responsibilty to ensure that genuine sites with unique original content will not be penalized.
