Google Updates Algorithm To Target ‘Conspiracy Theories’

Fact checked
Google cracks down on conspiracy theory websites in new algorithm update

Google have announced a major update to their search engine which they say will eliminate conspiracy theories from the Internet forever.

On July 27, 2017 Google updated their quality raters guidelines, which included instructions to staff to purge alternative media websites from the search results.

Activistpost.com reports: Months before, Google updated their guidelines for raters twice – once on May 11, 2017 with some smaller changes, and then again on March 14th with bigger controversial changes classifying what “offensive, upsetting, inaccurate and hateful web pages,” defines.

The new guidelines giving a search giant so much control over the free flow of information is extremely worrying.

The guidelines instruct raters to directly confront “unsubstantiated conspiracy theories” by looking for a source that debunked them, The Sem Post reported.

The Post noted that the rules don’t specifically target and go after all “conspiracy theory” websites, only those that present a “conspiracy theory as factual information without basis.”

However, who decides what is and what isn’t real?

Who are the companies behind this valiant effort to police Google’s search engine, and who watches the watchers?

Well according to Search Engine Land, “Google contracts with over 10,000 search quality raters worldwide to evaluate its search results. Raters are given actual searches to conduct, drawn from real searches that happen on Google.”

None of the companies it contracts with were named.

Under section 7.10, Google goes on to crucify “unsubstantiated conspiracy theories.”

7.10 Examples of Lowest Quality Pages:

Lowest: Deceptive page purpose – unsubstantiated conspiracy theories.

Google added an example of “unsubstantiated conspiracy theories” choosing the most wild and crazy ones out there but also labeling “the existence of aliens,” to be low-quality content.

The example they used was the alleged existence of the Sumerian 10th planet Nibiru and the conspiracy the Vatican knows about its impending crash into Earth. But then, after that, the document defined what it considers “unsubstantial conspiracy theories” which includes those challenging “well ­established historical facts.” But the connotation of what those historical facts would entail is not included.

“The  MC  on  this  page  contains  factually unsupported  theories  related  to  the  Vatican’s knowledge  of  the  planet  Nibiru,  the  existence  of aliens,  and  upcoming  world  events.   Although various  Vatican  officials  and  scientists  are quoted  in  the  article,  the  quotations  do  not support  the  article’s  claims,  and  in  some  cases do  not  seem  to  come  from  the  person  quoted. The  Nibiru  cataclysm  and  related  events  have also  been  thoroughly  debunked  by  authoritative sources  ( Reference  1 ,  Reference  2 ).   The demonstrably  inaccurate  content  on  this  page can  misinform  users.

“Pages that directly contradict well ­established historical facts (e.g., unsubstantiated conspiracy theories), unless the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint

A non­satirical webpage or website presents unsubstantiated conspiracy theories or hoaxes as if the information were factual,” Google wrote.

The example in the PDF continues to show that raters should be able to find credible sources that have debunked the conspiracy theory.

Meanwhile, YouTube a Google parent company, is planning on crucifying anyone who doesn’t upload fuzzy cat videos and puppies; in other words, all their controversial content creators under the guise of getting rid of “extremist content.”

These organizations to police YouTube’s content include the No Hate Speech Movement, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, and the Anti-Defamation League.

But don’t worry, Google won’t ban controversial conspiracy content altogether only if you’re not looking for it. As the document noted, “unless the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.”

We are further witnessing the YouTube, Google and Amazon adpocalypse against the alternative media and it’s far from over.

  1. Good. Hopefully this bullshit website will be shut down for spread lies, pseudoscience and pure unfiltered bullshit.

  2. Richie Gregson you seem to be very worried about this site and would like it closed down is it because ,you and your Satanist friends see that this site is forever exposing the peodophiles and one day you will be caught.

  3. Does this mean that the ADL who is owned by religious Jews can filter out content from competing religions?

  4. They do realize there’s an argument to be made that Google’s success is largely a conspiracy theory? Heck reality itself kinda fits the bill as well. What’s another good search engine (especially for images), I’ve had enough of Google.

  5. So, google’s example of “wild” and “unsubstantiated” names the Vatican and Niburu.
    Do they know that they just raised the credibility rating for those items by their own spite?

  6. Google is imitating and going along with China’s social credit system. The little bit of capitalist they did in the 90s is now being thrown completely in the rubbish bin! They are being like the 1960s when millions were put to death! This social credit system is something all the union workers and informed educators should speak out against as it’s going to come here in bits and pieces since they cannot call it that here without the population rising in arms (hence why the push to take away guns).

    The “Trump Tweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeets!’ news articles are to get people so sick of Trump they will ‘hold their nose’ and vote the stupid dork in who wants to unit the world in love and peace but doing so brings the downfall of the USA all the way in 2020. Mark my words Martial Law is coming here if we go Democrat in 2020. This is just a drill. Repeat this is only a drill. (booooooooooop)

  7. For the first time I’m taking survivalism very seriously wanting to learn how to fend for myself when either the grid goes down or martial law comes first. There are three stages to martial law and we are in stage 1 right now since 9/11. Stage 3 you don’t want to be part of it. Mountains of skulls appear during that and you have your checkpoint Charlie system’s everywhere. On buses,trains,blocking highways,etc.

    Hillary says that Venezuela does it right.
