    You need to start more threads if you trip across info that affects all of us.

    I've noticed some sites getting a little bump, while others have crashed.

    My adsense revenue has been kicking butt.

    Hope it doesn't revert back to what it was all freaking winter.

    "I've noticed some sites getting a little bump, while others have crashed."

    Bump in what? Traffic from PPC and other sites you do PPC with crashed? The article was on PPC. Or are you talking about Adsense?

    I heard about the recent slapping of stuff like that and Google Money Tree, Google Cash Offers etc. Google coming hard on that kind of thing.

    They can also slap good sites at anytime.

    Google can cut you off at the knees and turn a site into nothingness.

    SEO is pretty damned important in my life...

    It seems like more Perry Marshal selling his wisdom. Present problems and then solutions for a price. I'm not saying that's a bad thing but people that think they have Google figured out leave me wondering, but I'm a skeptic by nature.

    At http://adwords.google.com/support/bi...y?answer=66238 it says:
    Website Types to Advertise with Caution

    The following website types will sometimes merit low landing page quality scores and may be difficult to advertise affordably. If you choose to advertise one of these website types, be particularly careful to adhere to our landing page quality guidelines - especially the rule about offering unique content.

    * eBook sites
    * 'Get rich quick' sites
    * Comparison shopping sites
    * Travel aggregators
    * Affiliates
    Google has long encouraged unique content and discouraged "bridge pages"... I guess now they're being more explicit in naming affiliates among the violators.

    Affiliates have been reporting being slapped lots of times, not just recently. If Google is doing it more often now than in the past, then it's not that the rules have changed; they're just enforcing them a bit more strictly.

    Google should be embarrased by some of the offers they have been allowing into their ad networks recently. I know they were having trouble keeping up with Wall Street expectations, but the diet and government grant free trial offers that scammed people into huge credit card rebill charges made a lot of people mad and frustrated.

    These type of affiliate links should be slapped along with weak bridge page affiliates, but I can't imagine that Google would lower the rankings of big content sites that have a few affiliate links here and there.
