Surely Google doesn’t think Mashable is a content farm?
To look up a Mashable.com story I'd read on my mobile phone, I typed the headline into Google. My first thought was that a lot of people scrape their content. And my second was where the hell is the original story?
Logged into my Google account, I don't see Mashable anywhere on the first page for a search on "42 new digital media resources".
Using a different browser and logged out, I see it second as this screenshot shows.
And when I switched to a 3rd browser, still not logged in, Mashable vanishes again.
Several people on Twitter confirmed this. Seems like Google's anti-content-farm algorithm needs some tweaks ...
