Content farming

Content farming is the provision of large amounts of mostly low-quality content on websites with the aim of attracting users and generating revenue through online advertising. Often news about , advice texts or instructions on everyday issues are published. Characteristic is a high degree of search engine optimization, which ensures that the pages receive many clicks. In this business model, the focus is not on the production of high-quality content, but on the use of cheaply produced content as a lure for users.
