I have enough. Do you know that this site of mine was so badly penalised by Google that on certain days, my Adsense get zero income when I usually get about USD15? Can you imagine over 300 pages impression and I get zero click when usually my CTR is rather good? Usually, this site is on the top of my blog income but guess what? Even my blogspot blog earns more Adsense. Go figure!
So, it shows Google is damn manipulative. They hit me because I support their competitors like selling text links and doing paid posts. But look, this site is still a damn good site.
But that’s fine with me because what’s USD15 x 30 days to me? I will not play by Google’s rules and will continue to sell text links and whatever good money thrown my way.
What pissed me off are stupid blog aggregators that scrape any farking keywords and use it on their sites. I am sure all of you are familiar with stupid sites like “Lilian wrote a good post about (enter title) and (part of my contents)” or something inane like “Brian said this but I do not agree on (enter our blog title) and (the contents)”.
There are thousands and millions of such site and they are all surviving because of Sugar Daddy Google.
Here are two sites, with different URLs with shitloads of Google Adsense.
And another one. The two sites have different URLs but same template.
Then, there are those who plagiarized our contents….Even if they put a link back to us, it is still stealing contents.
Try reporting to Google and all we get are wordy-wordy emails telling us to do all the necessary steps. I had tried and I am pissed. Google won’t hit these sites because they support and kiss only Google’s arse. However, Google will hit any sites, no matter how good the sites are simply because we monetize our sites with other companies. If Google is more selective, such spammy aggregators will not bother to spawn.
So, yeah, Google is the sugar daddy to all those spammers. If you are an advertiser, will you waste your money on spammy sites like what I have shown above?
Will someone please StumbleUpon and do whatever to pass this rant around? I am super cheesed off with Google because they do not do what they preach. They want to help clean the WWW? How about being more selective on who their publishers are? You are cheating advertisers’ monies by placing so many of their ads on one spammy site, man.
