Lee Gomes of the WSJ uncovers how some web site owners undertake the task of adding unique content to help with their search engine rankings.

My job, it became clear, was to make enough small changes to the text for Whirlywinds to be able to pass it off to search engines as his own. Which is, in fact, what most of the “original content” on these sites turns out to be: cut-and-paste jobs with superficial modifications.

Is today national “Cut and Paste” day? :-)

Hat-tip Barry.
