Online Marketing Company Calls a Halt to Spam Tactics
Finally at least one online marketing company has decided to expose much web content for just what it is - often fairly blatant spam.
This spam is most often created by a "content spinner" or "article spinner", an application designed to take one original article and from it produce often thousands of slightly different variants. The result is more often than not a myriad of badly written texts with incorrect grammar, bad spelling, and often totally nonsensical texts. We have all been subjected to it. And now you know how it is created.
Google decided to do something about it, and now at least one marketing agency is taking a stand. If more businesses and people do, then the online world might be a better place for all. Utopia or not?
