English term or phrase: content farm
Definition from Oxford:
A website that contains very large quantities of content, typically of low quality or aggregated from other sites, generated solely to ensure that it appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine.

Example sentence(s):
  • Over the past two years, we've learned that there isn't any actual monetizable 'cultural value' in building a content farm with an authoritative voice or domination of a niche area. Vice
  • Most websites that buy articles from content farms are information-oriented, meaning their readers want quick, accurate info rather than a thoughtful reading experience. MediaBistro
  • In recent years, sites known as content farms have been taking advantage of the Google algorithm by copying content from reputable sites or publishing only words and phrases people might search for. The result is often a garbled mess of robot-speak that appears at the top of search returns. Slate (video)

farma sadržaja

Definition from Netokracija:
Farma sadržaja, je kada velika tvrtka unajmi hrpu pisaca sadržaja koju pišu velike količine sadržaja isključivo za algoritme.

Example sentence(s):
  • Algoritam Google Panda prvi se puta pojavio 2011. godine s jednostavnim ciljem, a taj je “uništenje” stranica koje su došle na visoke pozicije zahvaljujući content farm načinu optimizacije. Farma sadržaja, kako bi to preveli na “naški”, je kada velika tvrtka unajmi hrpu pisaca sadržaja koju pišu velike količine sadržaja isključivo za algoritme. Google je Pandu predstavio kao manju nadogradnju koja je vrlo “suptilna” do te granice da će jako mali broj vlasnika stranica osjetiti pad organskog prometa. U konačnici to baš nije bilo tako budući da je prvom nadogradnjom bilo zahvaćeno više od 10% ukupnih svjetskih pretraga. - Netokracija
