@reseler there is nothing to be done about "owners of many domains" everyone can register domains using A,B, or C company name (and BTW how about the thousands of offshore phantom companies gaming in the stock exchange?)
Keeping in mind the huge resources available for Google's teams, I'm sure it wouldn't be that difficult for Google Search Quality Team including Google Webspam Team to identify those Multiple Domains Crowding spammers.
If you take a close look at the "whole operation" of Multiple Domains Crowding spamming, you would see very clear the profile of the operation, for example:
- company owns a main domain.
- Company might owns several other domains of just slightly different content than content of the main domain.
- Company might owns several mini sites containing only few pages of similar or very thin content linking back to the company main domain.
- Company might owns one or several "thin" blogs linking back to the main domain.
- Company might be leasing one or several sites to display the company ads which link back to the company main domain.
So we are not talking here about just any company which owns several domains of unique contents for the purpose of marketing and sales of different products or services; widgets-1, widgets-2, widgets-3 etc..
We are talking about companies running a whole spam operation aiming at occupying most of Google's Top 10 search results. Thus killing diversity and competition on Google's Top 10 search results. Thus denying Google's users their rights to choose!
