America’s Greatest Threat is making the news again today. Fox & Friends aired a segment about Google blacklisting conservative websites. One familiar blog on googs bad-boy list is The Gateway Pundit. No wonder my political articles are rarely found when searching Google 😡
I was hoping Fox News would have this particular segment on their YouTube channel. But nope.. Fox is more interested in covering the Adam Schiff Impeachment Clown Show! But i did find this political bias revealing Google tidbit from the Timcast channel.
This domain blacklisting is mostly about news. Google says blacklisted domains [may] appear in organic (free) search, but don’t bet on it. My personal experience as a blogger with decent readability and excellent seo scores (Yoast SEO) don’t mean diddly to them.
When submitting a new article in search-console I’m often told It’s not mobile friendly, when their testing tool says it is. This is Goog BS. The fact is their algorithm is mobile first. They just don’t want to index it as mobile friendly. The url is then buried many pages down.
Another example of America’s greatest threat is YouTube political bias censorship. YouTube must have my FidoSysop channel on it’s bad-boy list. Many of my videos from the 2016 Trump campaign have unbelievably low views. Many with less than 50 views after going on 4 years. The fact is, as a Trump supporter, Goog is hiding my videos!
Now America’s greatest threat will soon reserve the right to delete your YouTube videos or channel if it’s deemed it to be “no longer commercially viable.” That’s correct, YouTube can shut down your channel if it isn’t “commercially viable.” What YT is saying is, If your video isn’t going to sell ad space, something greedy Google obviously wants, then they can delete it and your channel. At the end of the day, the company can do want it wants, but when the wording of the rule is so vague it is obviously concerning.
YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account’s access to all or part of our Service if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable. Social attorney Ian Corzine lays out their COPPA oops moment.
Another tidbit is about Android operating system in smartphones. I just dumped my Google Pixel 3 for an iPhone XR. I loved my pixel 3 until i realized Google was listening to conversations in my home. This is a true story. A few months ago a friend and i were discussing an uncommon problem i had with my car. It’s an old car and many of today’s mechanics wouldn’t have a clue how to diagnose this particular problem.
My friend mentioned a mechanic he new and gave me his phone number. As we were talking my Pixel 3 beeped with a notification. Google had sent me a link to a nearby garage with a coupon. I almost crapped my pants. Google was listening to our conversation!
Whatever happened to the good old days when we had a thing called privacy? Being a blogger i am well aware that privacy as we once knew it is gone forever. But listening to my phone calls and conversations in my home in an attempt to earn a buck is too much!
While you’re here, check out this TGIF video that was leaked to Breitbart news.
A video recorded by Google shortly after the 2016 presidential election reveals an atmosphere of panic and dismay amongst the tech giant’s leadership, coupled with a determination to thwart both the Trump agenda and the broader populist movement emerging around the globe. Patriots beware of this globalist monopoly! 😡
