Got this email from Ove:

This strange ‘gimmish’ of text appears to be robotic in origin. Do you understand where these things come from and what they aim to do?  Just interested. http://tanvanet.bligoo.com/paul-hoegh-guldberg

The page is bizarre, a mishmash of text - possibly automatically patched together by bots? Anyone know what this might be about?

It's a scraper site.  These are set up purely to earn advertising revenues from other people's efforts.

 

The textual  content is from

http://www.uq.edu.au/news/index.html?article=21390

 

The Google adserve ID for the scraper site is -

GS_googleAddAdSenseService("ca-pub-8854110002333818");
GA_googleAddAttr("blogId", "107861");

Unfortunately, Google will only accept complaints from the owner of the infringed copyright, so these sites proliferate faster than you or I can do anything about them.
