My primary thought was to reduce impressions in India and Pakistan. I am very popular in these countries, for reasons that totally escape me.
One of my sites deals with assisting businesses to comply with a certain huge set of U.S. government regulations. It's basically useless information for someone outside the U.S.
However, I kept noticing people from India subscribing to the email newsletter that supports the site.
As a result of some investigation, I stopped sending the newsletter to those subscribers and the instances of my content being stolen and appearing on other sites dropped significantly.
So for what it's worth, that may or may not be at all related to this thread.
