Scam to fool Google by simulating Oracle web sites

Tech Tips by Donald Burleson

Like most everybody today, I use Google to find Oracle information.  Google is right at my fingertips and I usually find exactly what I want from a trusted source in just a second.

But that may change, as automated bots spider the web and use Google's own API to create web pages to fool Google into thinking that they are real Oracle sites.

These sites have a lot of nerve, polluting our Google searches with inapplicable crap, and then have the balls to participate in Google's Adsense program and make money from the scam!  On the other hand, Google may soon become very powerful, and they may someday control the Internet.

A Scam against Google

This is scam against Google, where they use Google to create pages, publish them, and then collect Adsense revenue back from Google.  Google pays twice, once is resources for the API calls to build the web site, and then again when they pay the fellow Adsense money. 

I don't blame Google one bit for giving PR0 to link farm sites, and I wish they would do it more often.  In fact, I was really surprised that Google didn't "un-index" the site, effectively removing it from the Internet.  If Google were more aggressive in banning these link farms, we would see a lot less "spam" web sites and the value of the Google results would improve.

Here is how it's done.

I was searching for some Oracle information and came across the exact same version of this scan. This web site is nothing but a simulation of a Google search window!  Then, we notice the frames of ads above and on the side, where they attempt to steal money from Google. This query shows a page that looks like ot was built from a Google search:

It's real obvious what Google search was used to build the scan web page because that are conveniently highlighted.  So, let's try a Google search on "Oracle v sql server" and yes, we see similar results.

It's a shame that Google might feel threatened by more lawsuits and won't stop this practice.  In the recent lawsuit, Google won, but barely.

Here is another scummy site, that openly publishes the results of a Google site search, and hangs the page to drive traffic to their site.  The site has a PR0, but I'm surprised that they exist in the Google index because it's clearly a scam.
