In a post published on December 4, 2016, HalfPastHuman.com’s Clif High warns publishers of “woo-woo” content, such as posts relating to UFOs, cymatics and Native American spirituality (articles about which I’ve published over the past week), that their sites’ traffic will be reduced appreciably.
Without knowing the reason, I’d noticed this occurrence with ForbiddenKnowledgeTV.net, starting a week ago, during Thanksgiving weekend. The number of page views on this site plummeted to 20% of what had previously been normal.
The numbers were so weird, I tossed them out as an anomaly but now, with Clif’s explanation, I see that this was a direct result of Google’s assault on the so-called “Alt-Right” and on “Fake News” – neither of which this website is an exponent.
However, the non-mainstream themes and disaffection with mainstream politics expressed on this site decidedly place it in the Alternative Media category, which is linguistically linked with the “Alt-Right”. The latter has been targeted for destruction, with new policies being tabled by Congress, appropriating $160M from the Department of Defense.
Despite these policies not yet having been passed, Google-YouTube, a behemoth of a private corporation, which functions more like vast transnational utility is way ahead of the curve and has recently changed some of its algorithms dealing with the display of search results, in their bid to favor what they deem to be the “trustworthy” bloviations of the Criminal Mainstream Media.
This new war on “Fake News” is, of course a farce. It is censorship, plain and simple. Still, if ForbiddenKnowledgeTV.net is to continue publishing, Clif High advises that I must “take steps to watch the words that Google is banning or associating with the Alt-Right such that [I] don’t get swept up by the new digital fascists…”
