Pander to quality demand!

APPARENTLY, even the people at Google are uneasy at the vast oceans of "content-farm" dross out there in cyberspace, some of it computer-generated. Their "Google Panda" robot is cruising the internet as we speak, downgrading in its search result rankings unreadable content that's obviously been produced solely with the intention of fooling search engines and their users.

More importantly, it is claimed that Panda will upgrade in Google's search result rankings "quality" content by someone who can actually write (demonstrating humanity).

This may be worth mentioning when pitching online written content work from website people who may be hesitating about whether to outsource their "content" to the Philippines for $5 per short article, or whether paying actual money to a proper journalist might prove more effective in the long run. Other search engines are available.
