Googler says DMOZ is source for snippets. DMOZ does not exist anymore.

    So check this out thousands of people follow this Googler for SEO tips and hints. Here's a Did You Know post with a very curious fact:

    Then obviously the first comments points out that DMOZ has been shut down.

    So....where did this "tip" for webmasters come from? Google obviously does not use DMOZ for snippets at all. Like AT. ALL......

    Get it now why this place is called Black Hat World? That right there is an official Google account. That is what people are following for "white hat" SEO. AKA "no SEO" because what they say often doesn't even exist.

    Now look at this : search for a common word and synonym. work synonym, people synonym and so on.

    Notice anything?

    The top of Google, like 60% of the SERP, shows YOUR content without ANY credit whatsoever. No credit.

    And if you use AMP pages? They serve your content from google.com without ads or any attribution whatsoever.

    This is the future! Ignorance is strength, freedom is slavery.

    I had to go back and forth between a few lines... bear with me am not my smartest self today.

    What credit? I get the point about amp pages. Also don't quite comprehend how the 1984 quote fits into play here.

    Copyright. Who created the content? It wasn't Google, they scraped it off somewhere. Where?

    Guess who's big brother.
