Complaints About Google’s Blog Search

Chris Richardson at WebProNews has a good article outlining some of the complaints against Google’s Blog Search.

Seems a lot of blogs are scraping content to either redirect visitors to another page or to sell Google Ads on their own blog. Who makes money on Google Ads? Well, Google of course! What’s especially frustrating is that many if not most of the offending blogs are on Blogger, owned by, of course, Google.
By running a Google Alert on “flyte” I’m finding about one blog a day that’s scraping my content to drive traffic to their sites to sell more Google Ads. However, since not all of my posts include the word “flyte” I’m only catching a fraction. (I share a name with a college football coach, so the Google Alert on “Rich Brooks” was not helpful.)

Is it even possible for me to write a paragraph about the Web that doesn’t include the word Google or a product owned by Google? Only time will tell….

  2. I agree google is corrupt and can damage your business if a vindictive person use their blog and campaign against your company or product, you have no comeback. This should be against the law, I am currently seeking legal advice regarding suing google.

  3. This is actually not about “Blog Search”. It’s just simply, {To you, perhaps.} about getting my own Google Home page back again through Firefox, and set up in the first place, on Internet Explorer. It seems to me rather strange, that Google, which, in my opinion is a worthy “Search Engine”, does not provide “Personal Technical Support”, beyond FAQ.
    If you can’t help me, then can you direct me towards some significant, and reliable scource who “can” assist me. I thank you in anticipation of your response.
