Because of the work I do I have been for the last week happen to be in the Google office here in Sydney for various meetings.
Durring one of the meetings I had a 5 min discussion with some of the management who informed me that they have for the last 6-7 years have been looking at a particular site called the WF.
Now what made it more interesting was that Google in whole has been aware of the WF for a lot longer in the US, and they have purchased WSOs to see how they are gaming the system so they can plug the holes.
And that some of the changes to the way Google runs their business was because of the information they have found on the WF, so in a way we the members have responsible for the way in which changes its way on how YouTube is done by views now and not likes as before and that the death of article marketing happen the same way because of the link baiting .
Also the Google algorithms and updates I.E. panda and penguin, so in a way warriors have been so successful in the businesses that has bought on their own downfall to that niche they had been making the money.
So maybe next time you have been raking it in via Google best keep to yourself
