Does Google's new Algorithm Affect Helium?

Google's new Algorithm is supposed to weed out the low quality content farms by putting them at the bottom of the search engine. Does this affect Helium and is it considered a content farm? I'm just curious because I don't think it is, but have any other writer's earnings gone down since they started the new algorithm?

It did hurt them and numerous other sites. Expect Helium to bounce back though. They are instigating some changes due to the algorithm. Lots of sites got hit hard, even a few you might not have expected. Not all of them were poor quality content either.

Nobody knows for sure, the only way to check is to check where they currently rank in search engines for keywords you know they should be ranking for. I think they are kind of borderline, as are all user based content sites, so I really do not know for sure.
