I noticed some really weird stuff coming up in automated Google Scholar searches. Example – see this one below:

The second paper listed there takes one to a very strange site. It appears to be a pseudo-mirror of the journal site all embedded within the domain “Hea1thandFitness.Com”. Note – this domain name has the number “1” replacing the letter “l” in the domain name – I assume as a trick of sorts. Clicking on the link takes you to a site for which I have done a screen shot below
The whole thing is weird – with the number instead of the letter and the weird formatting of the site. Just a tiny glitch? Well, I don’t think so since in some of my other Google Scholar alerts other links to this same domain came up. See examples below:

So incredibly weird. Is there some site out there that figured out how to scam Google Scholar into linking to them? Anyone seen anything like this before?

I also noticed this today.
I have several of those in my alerts today. A day or two ago I had something that may be related: the alert included this text…

The link went to a different website, abcanswers.com, where the text appeared normally: http://pediatrics.answerabc.com/content/118/2/511.short
I'm guessing the mangling of words is to avoid plagiarism/copyright checkers, but not clear on the overall goal of these websites. A few weeks ago I saw alerts from a website that was just reprinting article citations. That disappeared from the alerts quickly though, I think google caught on.
greetings from Geneva. Being following your blog since #PDFtribute
hea1thandfitness.com seems registered by Antonio Medeiros (TX) firstname.lastname@example.org
Googling the email address, seems like it is used to clone other sites as well. No idea what is the purpose.
I sent a link to this post to someone from Google Scholar who said they would look into / take care of this
I noticed Google Scholar randomly including some of my own blog/notebook entries a while back so I decided to poke around. If the site looks enough like their algorithm, it might be included. I wrote to Google Scholar and I also posted this about how to match their algorithm,
and a few days later this was fixed to avoid inclusion of my site. It seemed to require some manual filtering on their part? Their reply was a bit closed lipped to tell.
