One more tactic agains Splogs like OstAuto and TheAutoMobilist

OK, I know, you're probably getting tired of this, but for those of us smaller bloggers, here is another option to fight Splogs like OstAuto and TheAutomobilist, contact Google.

Yep, it's as simple as that, contact google online, and complain about their use of your material. In the AdSense policies and guidlines, it says content of sites using Google AdSense, you are required to use original non-copyrighted materials. There are also rules about how many banners you may have and non-competative ads.

I've contacted Google through their feedback option, maybe if more people did, they would pull the ads from these sites? And if you hit OstAuto and TheAutomobilist where they live, you stop them. Sounds simple right? If they don't have the Google ads, they're not reaping in the dough and have no reason to steal.

If everyone who blogs and uses Google AdSense on their site, were to complain, then maybe they will take notice. I was going to do one of those mass emails, but felt this would reach more people.
