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)

tovarna vsebin

Definition from own experience or research:
Spletno mesto z velikimi količinami vsebin, običajno nizke kakovosti ali združene z drugih spletnih mest, ki je ustvarjena samo za to, da se mesto pojavlja više v zadetkih iskalnika.

Example sentence(s):
  • Vsaka tovarna vsebin potrebuje svojega CEO. To vlogo običajno izpolni urejevalnik za upravljanje z veščinami in izkušnjami za razvoj vaše strategije ter upravljanje ustvarjanja in dostave vaše vsebine. - Financeare  
  • Čeprav je že lani spomladi takratni vodja poljske diplomacije Radek Sikorski predlagal ustanovitev evropske televizije, ki bi oddajala v ruskem jeziku, je nizozemsko-poljska odločitev o rojstvu »tovarne vsebin«, ki bo ruskim medijem ponujala spletne, radijske in televizijske vsebine v njihovem jeziku, eden od prvih konkretnih odzivov Evropske unije na kremljevsko »informacijsko vojno«. - Delo
