    On the whole, the Internet companies what have succeeded have earned it.
    What have succeeded?

    I wonder if there will be a noticable difference... I doubt it though.

    Beat me to it

    >10% of search results is quite significant. It's probably not the sort of thing I'd notice though - mostly I can find what I want to find without too much difficulty, it's just occasionally I feel I'm spending ages looking at sites that just aren't helpful.

    These changes have made a huge difference. A lot of media/PR syndication companies are going to be panicking right now.

    Re: Opinions - Google algorithm change targets low quality content

    Hopefully this will help finding reviews of products I'm interested in reading about, which is where I suffer most from low quality sites. If the product has few reviews then a lot of times many of the top results are just references to the one or two reviews that exist, or price engine listings. I can hope that the algorithmic changes will help with this.
