Diberry I was talking to a support specialist at Bing (some are just terrific) and I asked why I dealt with that stolen content problem in Google and not with Bing. She responded very quickly that they scanned for the duplicate content before they introduced the page into the index. I said with all the bright minds at Google why donít they do the same. Her even quicker response was the stolen content likely had something of value to Google such as Adsense or other advertising. I laughed because that's the history of my rich Uncle Google.
Well, that is interesting! I had assumed it was just genuinely difficult to do, since intellectual property theft isn't always easy to prove offline either. The main point of scraping online does seem to be to make Adsense income, so I'm sure she's right.
And since I do check my most scraped keyphrases in both engines, I had wondered why I only find scrapers high in the rankings in Google, but I never got around to looking into it. Thanks for this info!
