The other day on the Bing search blog, Bing's Michael Basilyan posted a nice amount of detail around how their algorithms determine content quality. In the Google world, this may be similar to how Google's Panda algorithm works but not exactly, as you'd imagine.

Reading this is a must even if you dislike Bing or only care about Google.

Clearly, there are some links to Google's Panda algorithm here.
