Google and Technorati blog search rewards sploggers

I find it ironic that in a search of who is linking to Mashable’s report about StumbleUpon that a splogger is there using MY blog post (a splogger is someone who uses a system to automatically copy blog posts from other people). But notice that neither Google nor Technorati have my own blog post displayed right now. Here, take a look. Technorati at 12:18 a.m. (Pacific Time) has Naik’s News. But not me. That’s a splog and is copying my content. I don’t care about that. But I do care that blog search engines reward jerks like this.

Google’s blog search does it too. Naik is there WITH MY FREAKING POST but I’m not.

Ask gets it right. Yeah Ask!

Why hasn’t Technorati fixed their splogging problems yet? Can’t they see that duplicate content is coming off of my blog? And, Google, come on. It’s amazing that with all your PhD’s over there that you can’t do a better job with blogs than you’ve done so far (I keep hearing that the engineers at Google are bored with blogs and RSS and stuff like that and would rather work on video compression systems or something “sexy.” That attitude will get me to switch to your competitors, especially when they do a dramatically better job like Ask is doing).

Please Matt Cutts, get rid of Naik. Same for you Dave Sifry. Thanks.

    this is damn funny ..how would that help you and why
    would google care if your small blog is in their index or not? thinking of that google takes like 70-80% of the searchengine market, good luck going to competitors..

  3. Didn’t Google also just finish dancing? Does that make a difference on the Google side of this irksome search results issue? I just wish shaunblog.com would not come up on Google at #2 in a search for Shawn Honnick!

  5. By the way, are you sure that you have pinging set up correctly Robert? We aren’t seeing any pings from you via scobleizer.com or via scobleizer.wordpress.com…

  7. That site should now be gone from your future results. This is constant battle between freshness and relevance, something that we’re working on on a daily basis. Thanks for the report.
