"And as goes Demand, so goes the rest of the content mills"

There is a huge 'Q' of writing sites waiting to disappear and next in line is . The has so many sites which will soon follow suit. Those who are depending on Content Mills are well advised not to expect much as with sites slowly doing the vanishing tricks one could be left high and dry. Here is a list of 5 of the top writing sites on content mills

Who knows what augurs for these sites. I am on one of them.

Google seems to be the main cause

" Google got wise to how junk-content sites were ruining the usefulness of its search results, and took evasive action."

I wonder if that's why Bubbs characterizes itself as a blogging and social media platform. Goodness knows the majority of the content on the site isn't up to par!

'Bubbs' has got what it wants - pots of money. I am not sure if they are being watched by Google and if not then what is the secret. As you said what one finds there is nothing but hogwash, horrible English and what have you.

Oh dear, not good for all those who invested a lot of time and effort in creating content there, but in another way it might be good for those who are set to go it alone and to create their own sites.

Hubpages traffic has dipped sharply the last couple of days too, and I hope this isn't also part of the trend. They do strive to have high quality content, so that ought to be enticing for Google. Not all content farms are the same.

The quality of so much of the content there is terrible, and then lately when I have looked at the latest posts, all I find is copied recipes etc. Not good, and I don't know why Google still likes them, or does it? Should they lose their Adsense account they would be doomed for sure.

Persona calls itself , 'writing site' but I wonder if one voluntarily becomes a member with content mills. I have no knowledge about this.

I've heard of iWriter, but none of the others. It was bad enough that the former Associated Content went south. I think too many businesses, not just writing, think that IPOs are the way to success when I think they're better off without stockholders' demands for profit.

Google is selective the horrible posts notwithstanding Look at 'Bubbs' it is thriving despsite the nonsense we read there.

I actually like the B. You can literally write about anything or nothing as long as it makes sense. It gives even non-writers a place to post their thoughts.

If Googles can be blind to bubbs why not elsewhere?
