Blog test june 17

Lyrics website Genius.com has accused Google of lifting its lyrics and displaying them when users search for the content. According to The Wall Street Journal, traffic for Genius’ website has dropped. About 62 per cent of mobile searches for lyrics on Google did not result in a click-through to another site. This data is for March 2019.

While Google posting results for lyrics isn't a crime, Genius claims that they have caught the search engine lifting their content “Red Handed”. Starting from 2016, the lyrics website Genius positioned “straight” and “curly” apostrophes in their lyrics. When these are converted to dots and dashes in Morse code, they spell out the words “Red Handed”. Genius claims that they have found over 100 instances where Google used their lyrics in search results.

“Over the last two years, we’ve shown Google irrefutable evidence again and again that they are displaying lyrics copied from Genius. We noticed that Google’s lyrics matched our lyrics down to the character,” Ben Gross, Chief Strategy Officer, Genius told the Wall Street Journal.
