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)

obsahová farma

Definition from
Co je obsahová farma

Obsahová farma je web, kam jeho tvůrci vkládají obsah, který je často hledaný (nebo zrovna cool) a zároveň nemá moc velkou konkurenci, takže se i přes nízkou kvalitu zobrazuje mezi prvními ve výsledcích hledání.

Example sentence(s):
  • Jedním z důležitých SEO triků jsou tak zvané obsahové farmy. Jsou to – stručně řečeno – servery, které publikují velké množství obsahu (lidově – článků) a to tak, aby figurovaly ve výsledcích vyhledávání, které je pro inzerenty nejdražší. -  
  • Google Panda update je způsob boje Google s obsahovými farmami a nekvalitním obsahem. - Art weby  
  • Obsahové farmy, zlo roku 2010 z pohledu vyhledávačů, pro některé zodpovědné za emotivní diskuzi o tom, zda Google je ještě vůbec vyhledávač. -
