    Where did you see this and how would google distinguish a datafeed driven site and a not datafeed site?

    Sites that are essentially identical to other sites get penalised by Google. You need to make sure that your output from the datafeed looks sufficiently different so as to appear unique.

    I thought I had heard that google was going to block all of the datafeed sites eventually but I didn't think it would be this soon.

    I don't think MSN and others have headed toward this direction yet but will keep my fingers crossed. I get a good percentage of my traffic from msn so I'm not overly worried about what google does.

    ALL datafeed sites?! I certainly hope your source was wrong! Not only because it would mess with tons of aff. sites, but because it seems that the only smart way to get a big bunch of data onto a site is with some sort of database or feed setup--even if NO other sites use the same datafeed.
