    Content farming was always a short-term business model, but Demand Media hastened its own demise by abusing it on the scale that they did. As Shoemoney is fond of saying, “Don’t make Google look stupid.”

    Thats the problem when revenue solely dictates business objectives. You make a quick buck, but then wonder what happened when the flawed model stops working.

    As redundant as it is, deign for the user and not engines. They are king. They will make you king also if you are providing what they really want. It may take a while, but it’s worth the long term investment than a quick buck fallout.
