Has Google's Algorithm Update Improved Its Search Results?

Google has recently made a tweak to their search engine algorithm. They said that many “content farms” (websites producing massive low-quality content) have been clogging up their search results. With this algorithm change, they aim to help users find “high-quality” webpage results. But the key question is, has this algorithm change actually improved Google’s search results?

A SEO company named Sistrix did some recent extensive research, and they came out with a chart displaying which websites noticed significant ranking drops on Google search results.


As you can see, these websites dropped pretty significantly. Google says that they want websites which create original, high quality content. But nowadays, it’s impossible to create original content. And who’s to say that websites such as eHow don’t create good content?

Please leave your comments below on whether or not you feel this algorithm update improved Google’s search results.
