    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.
