Content farms are low-quality websites that pile up useless content and links in an effort to improve ranking results in Google searches. Unfortunately, a technique called Black Hat SEO is used by some to try and unscrupulously rank a website high on Google search.
The official Google blog post by Matt Cutts and Amit Sinhal explains the changes, which could upset some website owners. “We can’t make a major improvement without affecting rankings for many sites. It has to be that some sites will go up and some will go down.”
Google's announcement of changes will undoubtedly improve search results for all users. As of right now, there aren’t many details from Google, but we do know 11.8% of Google’s queries will be impacted. Stay tuned and happy searching!
