There is a Goog **ore in my niche from Western Europe(19 sites, most EMDs) and one in CINA. Both hire $.15 per image "professionals" to take the snaps. Hi Res. Every Item is Unique. They dominate the Goog Image Search, Bing Image search and run extensive campaigns to pollute Pinterst(not that I care much).
There several parts of Image compositions that we took in 07/08, or so, that are cutout from the originals and referenced on .eu, .cn, .ru, ua, dot anything . ... domains that point to gstatic cached links that generate images via base 64 string(data:78456nf895ty4t..) instead of hot-linking. Click Other sizes in Goog Image search.
Last week Bing was outright banned, this week Goog is next.
