From Craig Nelsen’s UnGoogle.US:

Yes, Google puts its thumb on the scale

…I took a few random words from a few random articles by a few random writers—some on the left and some on the right—and ran searches on a few different search engines. Then I counted to see what position the article came up in. These were the results.

Left-wing writers ranked generally higher in Google than in the other search engines, but for right-wing writers it is a completely different story. Over and over again, searches that produced articles by conservatives at the top or near the top in all the other search engines, produced nothing—not ranked at all—in Google!* (Yippy gave the best results, i.e., ranked the original article higher, for both right-wing writers and left-wing writers.) (View full results here.)

Google’s bias is stark, and that should concern anyone—left or right, writer or reader—who abhors totalitarianism and the concentration of power in the hands of a few—anyone who values intellectual and political freedom.

Writers need readers to be successful. Earning a living writing is a very tough thing to do. It is an outrage that Google, which receives something like 90 percent of the world’s search traffic, effectively blocks that traffic from access to the work of writers who don’t share Google’s worldview.

    I noticed this today in typing “the donald forum” into google. Nothing for pages. Bing, first result. Thedonald.win.

    Seems kind of Soviet of google to delist and reddit to remove the forum. Of course, all the grassroots, race realist meme magic of 2016 era primary Trump is gone, but it is still interesting to see if there is something there.

  2. Well, you’re doing better than the other folks at Taki’s, Steve.

  3. It is an outrage that Google, which receives something like 90 percent of the world’s search traffic, effectively blocks that traffic from access

    It’s pretty much an open secret among everyone who casts even the slightest critical eye upon mass media propaganda. Most of us have long since migrated to other search functions. But how many are we? I see the phrase “google it” used to mean “search for it” almost universally on ‘normie’ sites of every kind.

    Just as Ibram Kendi says you aren’t allowed to be “non-racist” any more–you must be “anti-racist” — so I think we can’t settle for “non-google”…we must be actively “anti-google” — and “un-google” may be a start.

    Power corrupts, of course, and Google is as corrupt as anyone out there. “Don’t Be Evil” they used to say. We now know why–they don’t want the competition.

  7. It’s good to see all the alternate search engines up now. I can still remember a few from the late 1990s, Lycos, Alta-Vista, ??, anyone? I’d not heard of google until perhaps late 1998, maybe 1999. It took off quickly because, yes, it worked well. Many of those others became worse the bigger the internet became.

    I understand that the Goolag still has a big monopoly, but, honestly, that is simple due to people’s laziness, valuing doing no extra thinking over finding more truth. However, all one has to go is “search it up”, yes, even on google. I just started with “alternate search engines” and “… to google” completed on its own. I’m not in a good spot to send a screen shot of that, but I will later on if no one else does. Yippy does not show up on the first page. Perhaps that alone is a reason to use it.

    Tables like those Steve quoted are the reason I use it now.

    Note though that we’ve seen plenty of articles here and elsewhere where SJWs demand to “end AI racism” or some such, which is really just code for inserting Google-type bias even deeper into public algorithms, such as the Watson box that Yippy depends on. So one cannot be too complacent that Yippy et al. won’t themselves get silently Goolaged while no one is looking.

    SJWs, like fanatically diseased salmon, are always swimming upstream to spawn their lies and hate as close to the source as possible. No stream is safe from their pollution so long as they have influence.

    Very poor communication. What does this passage (in which the word “rank” does not occur) even mean? What do the numbers in the table represent? Rank in finding a search result? An example of specific search terms and article might help. Why are there three entries for Thomas Friedman but eleven entries for Steve Sailer? Does this mean that three different articles were searched for for Friedman but eleven were searched for for Sailer?

    It’s censorship, assuredly, but it is NOT totalitarianism, Mr. Sailer. That’s being over the top. Perhaps you were inspired by the Negress Hair Moguls and the Tiger Moms when making this characterization?

    The fact is that the Conservatives/The Alt Right are still able to get their message out, and no one is coming to arrest you and throw you in the hoosegow when you peddle your narrative.

    As far as it being the “concentration of power in the hands of a few”, follow in the footsteps of Alt Right leader Vox Day–build your own platforms.

    You are being puckish, surely? (I am very tin-eared when it comes to sarcasm).

    There is no evidence in the whole sweep of human history for ‘independent thinking ability of the masses‘.

    The failure of ‘the masses’ to think independently, is why every single advancement of human ethics is promulgated in the first instance by members of a cognitive elite, acting against a political elite. The masses invariably have to be dragged forward, and are usually hostile. It is a key reason why social evolution is so slow when many ethical and moral answers are objectively obvious, and have been for millennia.

    If it was left to ‘the masses’, society would still be ruled by God-Kings, and we Helots would be subject to arbitrary imprisonment, torture and gruesome death on the whim of the rulers and their janissaries.

    I would not piss on ‘the masses’ if they were on fire: they are as much my enemy, as the political class – because their ovine supplication to the political class enables professional parasitism to persist. The fact that my taxes are wasted to pay for ‘education’ for their waste-of-ejaculate offspring, is only outmatched by the fact that my taxes help perpetuate the DNA of politicians and bureaucrats – a subset of homo sapiens that I would much prefer to drive to extinction, by any means necessary.

    “The Revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen years before a drop of blood was drawn at Lexington.”
    –John Adams to Thomas Jefferson, August 24, 1815

    The fact of the matter is that the citizen-farmer and common laborer at that time, emboldened by their own interpretation of Enlightenment ideas and spirited by the First Great Awakening, became keenly self-aware of their place within the British Empire. This revolution of the mind had physical consequences as Americans openly and brazenly opposed Great Britain’s new assertions of control as a united front. Indeed, the “masses” throughout human history are generally spurred by larger ideas set forth by an individual or a movement, but

    “If it was left to ‘the masses’, society would still be ruled by God-Kings…”

    That is patently false. The masses of Europe fought tooth and nail to remove the shackles of oppression imposed by those monarchs who ruled by the iron fist of the Divine Right of Kings. See Magna Carta, The Glorious Revolution, and The French Revolution.

    “I would not piss on ‘the masses’ if they were on fire: they are as much my enemy…”

    So common, everyday folk are your bane. How elitist of you. At least you have the courage to admit your utter disdain for us.

    “a subset of homo sapiens that I would much prefer to drive to extinction, by any means necessary”.

    But what Google does is the way every large corporation behaves when it has the opportunity to change the way people think. Google was at least founded with the purpose of providing web searches. Many of the older media outlets have been bought by people who use them solely to serve their own political or ethnic interests, running them at a loss if necessary.

    It’s up to lawmakers to stop this. The only thing more powerful than large tech companies is the state. Governments could force them to stop censoring people, if the will to do so was there.

    I wonder if he did this manually?

    There is software like AWR (Advanced Web Ranking) and online services, used in search engine optimization, that automates rank tracking by keywords and search engine on an industrial level. These packages can obviously be repurposed for tracking censorship. But the entire field is extremely complex and hard to interpret. The Occam’s Razor answer is, No they are probably not out to get you.

    Among the tricky issues is the fact that in practice only Google counts for traffic, which means that only Google has to hire an army of programmers to counter all the gaming that publishers aim at them. Nobody spends money and effort to get higher ranking in Bing. Who cares? The various countrymeasures that Google undertakes have unpredictable results. Also, Google, unlike the others, customizes results for locality and based on your previous search history. Simply deleting cookies doesn’t trick them. So ranking software has to jump through hoops to get apples-to-apples results.

    This is not an area for amateurs to dabble in. Far-right websites should just band together and hire an experienced and reputable SEO company to do some proper rank tracking and keyword selection.

    I think you are missing a few things. First, we’re not testing website rankings. We are testing the rankings of individual writers. Second, we’re not trying to increase traffic, we’re trying to expose Google’s bias. Third, if all the articles by writers on the right rank far lower or not at all on Google while the same articles/search terms put them in 1st or 2nd place on all the other search engines while for writers on the left Google ranks them just as high or higher than the other search engines, and this is consistent across the board with the one exception proving the rule, it’s safe to say Google really is out to get them.

    Great article and great point. I once ran eTRUMPnews.com and i noticed in 2016 a major change with Trump information. In early 2016 data about Trump was a mixture of pro trump and negative info. In early 2017, Page 1-8 was always left wing attack articles. You and i both know no one clicks beyond the 2nd page of google while nearly 80% only view the first page.

    My news was successful and I did very well for a long time. I ended the site after medical issues.

    Towards the end of the site i began receiving death threats.

    One revelation which still holds true to this day. The left goes insane if they can’t control the platform. Big Tech, must be in control with search results and they also hate it when WE THE PEOPLE own our own little platform.

    Another point, the cancel culture did in fact try to “Cancel my site” A mob of them wrote the domain register and claimed i was spreading hate speech. My site never condoned hateful folks at all and all of the news articles were taken from MSM, Left and the Right.

    It’s time to break up big tech before they begin to control our lives in real life and real time.

    It would be ironic if we could make “don’t be google” a euphemism for ” don’t be evil” in the lexicon.
