Google's New Farmer Update or Panda Update

In an interview with Wired magazine’s Steven Levy Googlers Amit Singhal and Matt Cutts speak more about the recent Farmer algorithm update.
One of the interesting things they say is that last year’s launch of the “Caffeine” indexing infrastructure as it played a important role in upping the visibility of “shallow content.”
According to Amit Singhal Our index grew so quickly, and we were just crawling at a much faster speed. When that happened, we basically got a lot of good fresh content, and some not so good. The problem had shifted from random gibberish, which the spam team had nicely taken care of, into somewhat more like written prose. But the content was shallow.

  1. It seems that Google is going to drive users to high-quality sites while devaluing low-quality sites.
