"Deboosting" Google or Are We Banned? I'll Call Either A Win.

I'll take either one.
Both scenarios devalue Google who seeks to devalue itself.
Thought I'd do my part to make Google search worthless.
Google and its DMT-fueled culture of death wants me dead and I want no part of Google.

Weaponizing Google's Algo Against Google Itself

Here's how it works.

Some time ago I began to introduce speech and links that Google's algo would determine to be "wrong think."
Things like "learn to code" or links to Zero Hedge, InfoWars, Breitbart and other independent media.

The thread "I Am A Google Deporable" and asking them by phone "why would I support Google with my business when they clearly want people like me dead?" may have also flagged this forum.

I also tried deactivating their bot's credentials but it still crawls us regularly.


I am proliferating "wrong think" and Google doesn't like it.

Compare June 2019 search referrals (top) to June 2018:

The playing field is being leveled.

The irony is that the five-fold reduction in Google referrals have not resulted in reduced site traffic.

June 2019 visitor hits were 439,269 versus June 2018's 367,620. That's almost a +20% increase.
(Visitor hits do not include spiders and bots.)

Google's biased algos, as far as this site goes, only harm Google. Google's biased algos benefit Bing and Duck Duck Go.

A five-fold reduction in Google search referrals actually increased site traffic by +20%.

I searched electronic drum tuners on duckduck and was disappointed that after 15 years of me selling an electronic drum tuner they don't think I exist... If I ask by name they find RESOTUNE but duh.... I want to find stuff in search engines I don't know the name of. :oops:

These days searches are dominated by paid ads.

For "electronic drum tuner" (as in electronic+drum+tuner) Duck Duck Go is the only search engine which produced a Circular Science indexed link on the first page. Resotune looked to be scraped from the pdf properties.

Google and Bing didn't have any results for you on page one.

They're all turning to crap IMHO.
I've actually rediscovered that Lycos is still alive.
Not bad but not great either.

Growth (if wanted) needs to be organic.

I have been suspicious about searching myself on google since I use paid google clicks so they surely know who i am and show me what they think I want to see.... :roll:

I don't want too much success (I sold 6 tuners last month), but don't want to leave inventory behind... 8-)

6 units is good!

Clear your cookies and history and use a free VPN to anonymize your IP.
Some free VPNs let you specify the country you will appear to be from.

Yes I have been thinking about getting a VPN at some point...

The scary thing is that computer technology is on track to hack current encryption standards in maybe a decade... Bad (state) actors are now hacking and downloading encrypted databases, knowing that in the future they can decode it.

Glad I'm old...

Perhaps a consequence of government scrutiny into web privacy, facebook has stopped pushing local MS ads at me, and has recently started sending me ads that only make sense if I was in NJ... :lol: :lol: The only personal data I provided about me in the profile is that I graduated HS in NJ in 1966. :roll:

And I worked at Circular Science but apparently FB hasn't figured out where circular science is (just like so many of my customers).

Peter Thiel (wealthy silicon valley conservative) has gone public charging google with "treasonous" military connections to China...

Interesting times.

This September 12, 2018 Executive Order should apply nicely: https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential ... -election/
I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the ability of persons located, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States to interfere in or undermine public confidence in United States elections, including through the unauthorized accessing of election and campaign infrastructure or the covert distribution of propaganda and disinformation, constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States. Although there has been no evidence of a foreign power altering the outcome or vote tabulation in any United States election, foreign powers have historically sought to exploit America’s free and open political system. In recent years, the proliferation of digital devices and internet-based communications has created significant vulnerabilities and magnified the scope and intensity of the threat of foreign interference, as illustrated in the 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment. I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with this threat.
One of the remedies:
Sec. 2. (a) All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in: any foreign person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of Homeland Security:

(i) to have directly or indirectly engaged in, sponsored, concealed, or otherwise been complicit in foreign interference in a United States election;

(ii) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of, any activity described in subsection (a)(i) of this section or any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or

(iii) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property or interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order.
