Yesterday, Google launched the “farmer update,” an update to clean up spammy content farms from the SERPs.

Content farms such as eHow, eZine, Mahalo are effected drastically in their rankings.

Now let’s connect some dots!

  • About.com is a content farm.
  • About.com is not effected by farmer update (Not confirmed, just what I am seeing).
  • About.com is owned by The New York Times

What do you think? Conspiracy? Thoughts?
