Epic Fail: The Rise and Fall of Demand Media

This really isn't news. It might be interesting for people who are not seriously into development.

Demands issues are a result of the market power that Google has. There is always some horse trading between parking companies, ranking and search engines.

I'd disagree with it being labelled an Epic Fail.

I just copied the original title of the article, I agree it is not an EPIC FAIL they still get 56 million unique's a month which is good.

Yeah it is not news but it is interesting case for those in large scale website development. I was not sure of the section to place this in.

James,

For the record, my comments were directed at the journo. Unfortunately the industry has its share of haters, negative publicity and people who just dont understand the model.

Accurate article in my view. The company has been a complete flop and was rubbishy from the start. Their issues are their own, not Google's fault.

Google algorithms will be penetrating progressively deeper into content farms and any other unnatural link building practices. A lot of sites are still flying under the radar at the moment, but they are investing billions into ensuring only quality sites will be in the results into the future.
Yet this is still a common practice, while so many are getting burned.
