Anyone got their embed/scraper/syndicated sites de-indexed?

    I've read many reports of adult sites getting banned, for embedding dupe content. How have your sites fared so far?

    Could be the end of all such syndication services then, such as Press Release Distributions.

    Maybe they will work on a % of the content on a page that is dup, as it would really harm news sites that consolidate stories from other websites.

    Right. Only in the case of the adult sites I've been hearing about it has been manual actions that got them de-indexed. I wonder if Google would take manual action against news sites.... That would be hilarious actually. :D

    Yes, google threatens to act against syndication, I don't know how they gonna do it. There are so many useful syndication sites that organize content in collections / categories.

    Yeah, but apparently that's not how Google sees it. :(
