HELP! What is This?

I was recently searching for this blog through the usual search engines when I came upon this site and others like it. It appears to contain random snipets of text that I wrote for this blog, similar to what you would see in search engine results. However, no references are made to my blog and there are no links to my blog on that site. In fact, the entire site is completely unintelligible to me.

There are quite a few ads on that site and I've seen other ones like it when I was searching the Internet for other topics. I imagine that the Internet is littered with thousands of websites like these.

To be honest, I am a bit annoyed that someone else is making money on ads by reposting text that I wrote to their junk website. I'd like to ask if my fellow PF bloggers have encountered something similar. Is there anything that can be done to stop these sites from taking material that I wrote for their ads?

What is this?

This appears to me to be a "Made for Google" advertizing site. Its sole purpose is to achieve a high rank in the search engine listings. The site's owners publish primarily advertizing based on keywords in the text, apparently stolen from you. The site's owners hope that visitors will click the ads, or references. They get paid per click.
