Google's Panda chews through content

Google's new algorithm, called Panda, has caused a "significant dip" in freelance copywriting jobs, according to

The drop has affected low-quality content for article submissions (down 29 per cent), copywriting (down 19 per cent) and ghostwriting (down 12 per cent), the website says.

Personally, I think it's no bad thing that it's going this way, discouraging those who use badly-written content full of keywords in a bid to rank higher in search engines.

While there may be some loss of work for writers working in this field, and potentially increased competition for writers on better-produced articles, it means that what readers see on the web will be better to read, which is surely the aim of anyone using a copywriter.
