@seo101 and all other SEO fanboys,
I have a constructive challenge for you and any of the Googlers.
Folks have presented plenty of stupid results of the Panda/Farmer change. Lousy, crap infested, SEO, spam results are up there on top for all sorts of stuff. What I also find now is Google figuring out how to weasel it's way into the search results every place it can. Tired of seeing YouTube videos in my search results. Where are other video distribution sites in the results?
Here's my challenge, do some research and show me where result quality has actually increased with this algorithm change. Feel free to use Google's foreign search engine versions to compare notes.
Interested in seeing improvements where:
1. E-how and Q&A sites aren't 40% or more of the 1st 10 results
2. Where there are 2-3 stacked results (site duplicate) in 1st 10 results
3. Where Google's own properties DO NOT APPEAR in 1st 10 results
4. Where mass media cartel of old school media isn't now clogging up the results.
