content farm Syllabification: con·tent farm

Definition of content farm in English:


A website that contains very large quantities of content, typically of low quality or aggregated from other sites, generated solely to ensure that it appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine: content farms dispense altogether with professional storytelling, in favor of search-engine-optimized information packaging
