Jeff Attwood's piece in Coding Horror (3/1/2011) discusses this.  He
found that the sites that scraped original content from ("his") Stack
Overflow site (a collaborative Q&A site for programmers) ranked higher
than the source site. You might say he was rankled :)  Stack Overflow
has a creative commons license and doesn't carry ads.  It doesn't fake
links to up its search ratings.
