Today, my page described above, is down to 11.1% of my impressions, due to my scraped data being displayed by Google in the #1 spot. The r@pe continues.
Seriously folks, how many webmasters are going to continue to create content that is scraped, and awarded the 1st SERP spot by Google? In the past, I have been scraped plenty, but the offenders pages were deeper down in the SERPs. This is the first time that my page has been wiped out of the #1 position, by my own scraped content!
IMHO, THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB OF GOOGLE IS TO KEEP INTERNET CONTENT STRAIGHT. If everyone's data is scraped, and awarded the number 1 SERP spot, then the entire Internet goes straight to he||. Who will want to contribute any longer, when all your efforts are for naught? Many Google issues are discussed here, but there is none more important than this. The Google machine will eventually fail, if it continues this type of carnage.
In my case, the offender URL is in the form of #*$!xx-#*$!#*$!.net. In these cases, it would be highly advantageous to be able to "out" the scum entirely, and not just hint. If I could, I would, right here.
No response from Google AdSense yet. Only my email to AdSense support went through. I don't even know how to contact the Google search people, since my email to them was bounced, using a previously good email address.
I have decided to "OUT" them myself, on my own site. It's my only option, right? ALL names and data will be exposed, and never taken down. This will be a PERMANENT nasty record of this large scraper. I'm tired of effing around. Anyone who PM's me will be given the URL. I will be back in a couple of hours.
