Then the Safari site wouldn’t have all the results on the first page of any search involving a tech question. It seems Safari does the tricky thing of allowing spiders to index the books on its site, but when you go there to find the information, you have to sign up for $40 a month to see it.
To me this is just as underhanded as any black hat spamming SEO out there. But Google doesn’t seem to care. If you go past these results for two or three pages, you finally find what you are looking for which is the free info.
Wake up Google. Your so above reproach authority sites are spamming the system and you don’t seem to give a crap.
