Summary: Sys-Con status update regarding abuse
EARLY in the week we wrote about Sys-Con viciously attacking those whom it was illegally exploiting. There are some updates on the case for those who may be interested:
Summary: Sys-Con Media’s ulitzer.com was delisted from Google yesterday but their sys-con.com domain (with duplicate content and articles that feature keyword stuffing) is still being indexed. IBM is looking into their relationship with Sys-Con. Google News has stopped syndicating the libelous Sys-Con articles about me.
So, on Sys-Con.com alone, there are 437 copies of every article. Ulitzer.com is basically a mirror of Sys-Con.com with different styling but the same content. So, across both domains, Sys-Con Media publishes 874 copies of every article in its system.
And this is how all that duplicate content looks on Google: search Google for inurl:sys-con inurl:439215. There are 241 results returned for just that one Sys-Con.com article. In other words, Google has well and truly been spammed by Sys-Con.com.
Meanwhile, I’m going to be talking about this to everybody I know at Microsoft, desperately seeking to find out which department engaged the advertising with Sys-Con, and looking to convince them that they don’t need this kind of press or association.
As a quick reminder, Sys-Con typically promotes the agenda of SCO and Microsoft, so bad news for Sys-Con would be good news to Freedom. █
