Because so many of them circumvent local laws with regards to prescription requirements.

Because so many of them got their traffic from hacking other sites and injecting links.

Next?

What in the case of a legit pharma site, though? Maybe one that features research articles and expert guides, too.

A legit pharma site these days is probably only going to be one that's either the original manufacturer or the govt. Maybe a handful of sites that have built authority over many years. But that's about it.

Did they write the material themselves, or scrape it from the nearest reputable* .edu site?


* Adjective that became necessary after nationally accredited schools gained access to the .edu name.

No scraped content. I was referencing to original work. A legit site would link to reputable sources or cite them in their work, but wouldn't plagiarize. :)

Still think it wouldn't fly nowadays. The trust and authority bar is probably higher in this niche.

Pharma niche is tabu mainly because there is a lot of web spam around it. Back into 2007 and ever since spammers usually promot shops selling pills,drugs and blast all the web with spam backlinks to this kind of sites. Considering that there is also a high percentage of fraud and illegal (read not licensed) activities isn't hard to guess why Google looks with thin eyes on pharma sites.
