I got to thinking today (I know! Scary thought!) - anyway, I was wondering why Google doesn't seem to be doing more to take care of the MFA (Made For Adsense) site problem on the WWW.
Right now, I imagine, there are still *a lot* of people who are new to the web and/or don't really grok it. This is why MFA sites get clicks (This goes for other spammy sites too) - the users/visitors can't distinguish content from ads - or rather, don't see a MFA site, just one with little content and links out.
Now, fast forward a generation or two. By then, I'm sure, most people will be able to see a crappy MFP scraper site and know what's going on. As a result of people browsing smarter, MFA people make a lot less money and the problem goes away.
Until then, Goog can grab their take of all those newbie clicks, knowing the problem will eventually take care of itself as the market evolves over the next 5 to 20 years. (When those growing up now - the Google Generation ?? - are grown up and consumers, they will have lots of experience with the web...)
Side topic 1) how do you think the web is going to change as more people become more familiar with it and technology expands?
Side topic 2) What is *your* definition of a MFA site?
