The local listings are now choked with garbage template websites that use TLD's like .tech .press
and .top which these companies pick up super cheap. . They'll also buy totally unrelated expired domains and throw on a niche specific keyword as a subdomain and Google actually ranks this crap!- (they of course, have the town mentioned in the source code 20-30x) They are pushing down fully legitimate local companies whose only sin is being unoptimized. I find it pretty disgusting that Google hasn't caught on to this (or are they simply overwhelmed with the sheer number of sites to go after?)
My question is, what is the generic name of this software that is being used to do this kind of thing ?
I hope Google in one of it's future algorithms will targets and deindex these hundreds of thousands of bogus websites. It is complete spam, the one thing that Google says it wants to stop. Good luck
