I posted what I thought was an innocent search engine optimization question in Yahoo Answers. I simply asked how I could get data feeds and affiliate links for Yahoo content as is displayed on this monetized domain name: http://www.massagechairdirectory.com/.
This site syndicates content from various Yahoo properties including Answers, Shopping, and tons of pay per click listings. All external links filter through http://www.massagechairdirectory.com/ ppcredir.geo?rank=3&type=Domain%20Match%20Subsequent%20Arbitrage
Very interesting, is Yahoo sponsoring in house PPC arbitrage campaigns? Is Yahoo disclosing to their advertisers and investors that they are getting into the
spam content generation game? Is yahoo losing the plot over the free and open internet?
Other companies have tried to make money off their clients using cloaked content sites masquerading as simple PPC arbitrage ventures including valueclick VCLK and marchex MCHX.
See my original post to http://answers.yahoo.com here.
I don’t expect a response from Yahoo, I just wonder why they are censoring their discussion boards and possibly promoting domain name parking content. I hope no one else has been blatently censored by this internet giant.
