And as someone who tries to do SEO (and tries to do it in a legitimate way), I say thank God.

Also: Justin Bieber.   ;D

Amen.
As someone who now deals in the B2B world though, I can already see the Google referrals nosediving even further for some of my bizzaro niche sites I work with.

This is good news both for the purity of Google, the overall user-experience, and legitimate web sites and newspapers. Bad news for Andy Auger and Bleacher Report.

Not good news for Demand Studios, either, on the eve of its IPO.

They don't have to do this. Everybody knows the arithmetic. We get the annual reports. Several parts of their company are doing very well. The Rocky had a tough year. They decided to walk away. Basically, my feeling is they quit on us. They quit on everybody in the newsroom. -- Jeff Legwold, Rocky

  And you also need to do it, AOL. Last night, a link about Troy Aikman shaving his beard led to...Bleacher Report.
