“A scraper site is a website that copies all of its content from other websites using web scraping/ (sometimes called harvesting).[1] No part of a scraper site is original.”//”A typical example application for web scraping is a web crawler that copies content from one or more existing websites. The result can range from fair use excerpts or reproduction of text and content, to plagiarized content.”//wiki

“Splogs are blogs where the articles are fake, and are only created for search engine spamming.”//wiki

“The content on splogs are auto-generated, either from some other source or a list of useless keywords.”//fightSPLOG

“Splog is a terrorist to our blogosphere and needs to be stopped.”//SplogReporter

“A splog is a “spam blog”, a blog that copies content from other blogs without permission (though there might be a link back), using that content as if it was their own. It’s a little more complex than that, as some mix and match content from many blogs, or mix and match content from different posts into one post.”//Lorelle

“Splogs are content thieves and can cause honest webmasters to get caught up in technical and financial issues by losing search engine listings and advertising revenue

Splogs use up blogging resources, especially those of Blogger and Blogspot

Slogs clog up the search results with crappy and irrelevant sites.

Splogs devalue the legitimate uses of blogs as communications and marketing tools”//Jim Hedger/webpronews

“Just don’t ignore them. Everyone ignores them. If you ignore them, they breed in the darkness and spread. Let’s fight to stop them now, not later.”//lorelle
