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)

ladang kandungan

Definition from own experience or research:
Laman web yang mengandungi jumlah kandungan yang sangat besar, biasanya berkualiti rendah atau dikumpulkan daripada laman web lain, yang dijana semata-mata untuk memastikan bahawa ia mendapat kedudukan yang tinggi dalam senarai hasil yang dikembalikan oleh enjin carian.

Example sentence(s):
  • Google tidak menyebutkan ladang kandungan di dalam pengumuman perubahan algoritma, walaupun syarikat itu berkata bulan lalu ia telah mengubah perhatiannya kepada ladang kandungan, "yang merupakan laman web dengan kandungan cetek atau berkualiti rendah." - WMS Computers  
  • Walaupun Google telah mengalami tekanan hebat pada bulan lalu untuk bertindak terhadap ladang kandungan, syarikat itu memberitahu saya bahawa perubahan ini telah berlaku sejak Januari lepas. - Maverick Mums  
  • Dalam kajian pantas satu juta kata kunci, Sistrix mendapati bahawa sejumlah ladang kandungan biasa seperti WiseGeek, Suite101, Kandungan Bersekutu, Artikel Base, dan Pemeriksa telah melihat 75 hingga 95 peratus kata kunci mereka dibuang. -
