PageRankPimp, Splogger – Bites The Dust

Frustrated with the same scraper splog for a while, pagerankpimp.com (many of you have noticed this in your WordPress dashboard) – I’m happy to see they have apparently been nuked. Hopefully the efforts I’ve put forth finding others scraped by them have resulted in their AdSense account being banned; hence their removing the splog, finally. This annoyance of SEO and blogosphere copy-lifter may just need to find a job now. Can you believe the kid was 15? Well, no more AdSense on there now, kiddo!

I hope he doesn’t come back, Google is supposed to ban a PERSON, not an account. But, spammers are clever. Best way to get these guys is their wallet – Google asks for feedback on their ads people, USE IT – click the Google logo in the adsense on the blog that scraped your article and credited a fictitious author.

    Oh, he will be back. Just a matter of time. Once these people have a taste for the easy buck they will work every angle possible.

    How did you figure out that it was a 15 year old?

    In my country (Poland, Europe) we have kind of “silent agreement” between few network admins (big networks, big admins;)). When someone find such a person or activity we try to hunt him to find out where he lives. If it is in our country he is banned from his local network(small network admins are very helpful). We do this with informal support from our friends in police (they also have network administrators;)).
    Sometime this work also above borders in EU (yeah I know no borders in EU… in theory:)).
    By the way-thank you for your page, I like it.
