Google Search Screwed Up

Aconfusedhead Google Search Screwed Upfter publishing Wireless and Mobile News for almost six years and doing NOTHING wrong, we have lost about 70% of our search traffic.

Yesterday, while researching something using Google, I was sent to a website hosted by Blogger, that started in May 2013 by a college student in India and the result ranked higher than major news sites. Continue reading “Google Search Screwed Up” »

Saddest Google Panda Update WipeOut We’ve Seen

IRIPGoogle Saddest Google Panda Update WipeOut Weve Seen‘m a just squeaking by, after four and a half years of publishing quality content and Google ranking stolen content higher than the original.  I’m exhausted but have not given up yet.  Many of my friends and colleagues who have worked creating websites that provide great American service are going under.

The saddest part of the Google Panda update is that it is putting honest American journalists out of work and paying off-shore scrapers in Adsense revenue.  Google is sending searchers to the what Google has determined is better for the searchers, makes more money for the Google and is not what the searchers are actually looking for.

U.K. Student Faces 5-Year Prison Term for Linking to Stolen Content

internetpiracy U.K. Student Faces 5 Year Prison Term for Linking to Stolen ContentIn a landmark case in the United Kingdom according to the Register:

A 23-year-old student, Richard O’Dwyer is facing extradition to the US, and possibly five years in a federal prison, after the British courts ruled he should face charges of copyright infringement for linking to websites hosting pirated content.

The student linked to sites that allowed users to view copyrighted content. O’Dwyer made over $230,000 from advertising from linking to pirated movies, TV shows and other content.

What I don’t understand is how Google can continue to send searchers to known stolen content before the original content without a single fine.

Google Search Results Can’t Read English or Tell Good from Bad

ThankfulforAppsediton2search 259x300 Google Search Results Cant Read English or Tell Good from BadAlong with verbatim content being stolen and ranking higher than the original, the Google Panda Update has completely screwed up search results. We have been monitoring it. The latest thing being done is spinning content.

The content pirate takes the article, puts it through some kind of translater so that it doesn’t make sense to a human being and the spits it back out.

Google then rates that article higher in search results than the original article.

Yesterday, we ran a an “APP Rapport Thankful for Apps Edition.” Today a Google search for that term sends to the top of search a bunch of non-human English Garbage.

It’s easy to find the coutnerfeit because they don’t change the title! The spun content is really hard to read and often ridiculous.  A blow-by-blow examination follows.

Stupid Stolen Search Results Continue After Google Panda Update

ItopsearchgoogleFallsforAndroid10112011 300x265 Stupid Stolen Search Results Continue After Google Panda Update ‘m really trying not to get too sick over this Google Panda mess.  After publishing 8 articles today, then spot checking the titles.  Almost every article was stolen by a pirate scraper and the scraper website was first on Google search results.

The title has our own brand of humor and puns, “AT&T Falls for Android with Fall Releases: Falling in Love with Android & Power?”  A pirate website does not have a sense of humor.

We added links, copyright information to our RSS feed, cut it the RSS feed short and disallow hotlinking. Instead of the source Wireless and Mobile News, being the first Google search result you get pirated, vomited crap with our pithy title.   This is the very first result on Google when you search the title, not logged in to any Google account.

The Google search result shows this piece of copied content as the first Google result along with our copyright information. “Copyright WIRELESS AND MOBILE NEWS, LLC. All rights reserved.”

The original article took about an hour to edit and write, three seconds to steal, while they make Google Adsense revenue off of our labor.

Google is in violation of U.S. copyright law because Google is contributing to the infringement of copyright by sending searchers to stolen content. 

The website in question registered the domain in July of this year.  Wireless and Mobile News has over 7,000 articles and has been published since September 2007.

Our staff has over 20 years experience writing about technology.

Please keep posting your comments of support.    Whenever I get comments, I send them to attorneys.

I’ve been saddened by all the businesses Google destroyed, while fly-by-night pirates get the traffic and the business.

The most upsetting part of this whole mess is that Google has not admitted there is problem and no matter what we webmasters do, the Googlebot ranks unprofessional garbage higher than quality businesses that have been around for years.
