GoogleGuy Wants AdSense Spam Sites Out

Jun 2, 2005 • 10:59 am | comments (2) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google AdSense

You and I see them every day, sites made for AdSense. Either they scrape content or some other form of content generation and stick up AdSense ads on them. ThreadWatch spotted a thread at WebmasterWorld named The beginning of the end for AS spam publishers..?, which discusses just this.

That thread summarizes a discussion by GoogleGuy on page 3 of the Questions for GoogleGuy discussion. GoogleGuy says straight out;

I hate spam pages that use AdSense.

Let's see how they prevent this in the upcoming summer.

correct me if I am wrong - but doesn't Google actually make money if and when these sites generate clicks? I highly question Google's heart in the matter. As the Emperor said to Vader in 'Jedi, "...I wonder if your feelings on this matter are clear..."

GoogleGuy is really outside of the AdWords/AdSense division. So he is pretty much a pure natural search guy. So, him personally, I believe, wants to see those AdSense scrappers out of the index. Google as a company. I don't know.
