Google raised a ruckus when it accused Microsoft of using IE to steal its search results to feed them to Bing. (here's comedian Stephen Colbert's take.)
Now Microsoft is hocking one in Google's direction, claiming Google makes money from spam sites -- even as it bad mouths them.
The Microsoft argument, put forth by Bing exec Harry Shum, is that these spam sites often carry Google ads and thus feed Google's bottom line. According to Shum, 70 percent of spam sites carry ads for Google and presumably send money to help Google execs buy yachts, mansions and even unmanned flying drones (yup, it's true).
While Google punishes sites for playing games with its algorithms, is it doing enough to stop spam sites? You tell me at [email protected]
