Made for AdSense

Category: Business & Economy: Marketing and Advertising

Some scraper sites are created for monetizing the site using advertising programs such as Google AdSense. In such case, they are called Made for AdSense sites or MFA. This is also a derogatory term used to refer to websites that have no redeeming value except to get web visitors to the website for the sole purpose of clicking on advertisements.

Made for AdSense sites are considered sites that are spamming search engines and diluting the search results by providing surfers with less-than-satisfactory search results. The scraped content is considered redundant to that which would be shown by the search engine under normal circumstances had no MFA website been found in the listings.

These types of websites are being eliminated in various search engines and sometimes show up as supplemental results instead of being displayed in the initial search results.

Google offers a domain parking service tailored for this kind of site. These supposed parked domains often run Google Adwords to attract more visitors to their site in the hopes that they will click on Adsense ads and generate a greater return than the original cost of the Adwords click. For many this has been a successful business plan, and one that Google has failed to combat.
