Google May Be Stealing Your Content
2. Content May be Old or Inaccurate. As for inaccurate, let's just say Crum found a search result that may have been written by baseball fans who ... really, really don't like the St. Louis Cardinals. (Warning: Language, possibly written by Cubs fans.)
A 2011 result Meyers found a couple months ago for "how much does google make" contains Google's revenue figures from 2010.
3. Content Marketers Can't Update the Answer Boxes in Real Time. Meyers writes that he updated the article, but Google's answer box remains the same. [Editor's Note: This was still true, as of presstime on Friday.]
"While this is only one example," he writes, "it seems to suggest that these answers are not being extracted and created in real-time—they're being stored in some sort of internal Google knowledge base. This may sound familiar, if you've read anything over the last month about Google's theoretical Knowledge Vault."
Are Google's updates helpful to your marketing efforts?
