I'm really happy Matt Cutts is aware of this problem now, because it is HUGE. I recently had to 301 redirect two domains to new domain names, due to a copyright issue with the domain name. The domains were trusted, 2 years old, excellent rankings. 4 Weeks after a redirect and the rankings were completely gone. Nada. Zilch. Here's the kicker. All those scraper sites that loved the old domains so much are now OUTRANKING the new 301'ed domains. Everyone is talking about this on Webmaster World forums. I can't find stuff easier on google anymore. The long tail has been cut off, and the google rabbit doesn't know it's head from it's tail(!) Finding anything complex just doesn't work like it used to. From looking for new drivers to finding solutions to php coding problems, it takes AGES to find what i need. The relevancy signals are all screwed up. G, i hope you get this fixes, not for my sites but for everyone! Bing is very, very, VERY attractive right now!
