Google’s promoting scrapers over Time magazine. Seems Google’s exception list isn’t as robust as one might have thought, or perhaps it’s that the news business just ain’t what it was…
Ideas why this is happening?
Update: 1 idea is that it’s tied to the latest algo change. See also Mashable’s status.
One guess I’d have is a high ratio of surrounding junk to the main body of content. That would fit under the layout/design/user experience angle targeted by the latest algo update.
If you have a legitimate need, read this review of three web screen scrapers?
