Hmmm, makes me WANT to visit these sites.

8 or 10 of my best resource sites are on this list. The first 3 under News and Politics have actually turned left or 'alt' left but:
Reason Mag? come on!
http://Judicialwatch.org?
RT ???
US News?
Financial sites, preparedness sites, health sites???
Suspicious 0bservers?
What do these sites have in common?...Truth? Reasonable discussion, fact searching??
Not all are political...hell, they'd even help lefties if they'd listen.

How the heck are We not on this list? You know they Hate AR.
How did Mike Rowe not end up here too?

Ya think google has been co-opted? Are the conspiracy theories about google true?
Google has gone far alt left, definitely anti human as far as I am concerned.

Your Thoughts...pssst...keep it quiet though, you may end up on this list.

What's next?...books, historical sites, colleges that don't revise history?

    Sorry, folks. The real reason google is not 'first paging' these sites is much simpler. These sites all incorporate pop-ups, pop-unders, splash pages, and a list of other annoying tactics designed for generate per-click revenue.

    These sites webmasters need to rethink their strategies. Sorry to piss on the conspiracy theorist's barbeque charcoal, but there's nothing deeply sinister happening here.

    I used to regularly visit a number of the sites on the list -- but I stopped because they became so damn annoying, I had to stop.

      A lot of lefty sites are just as agravating. I agree they aught to rethink the practice. Can't stand it when your reading a page and something is playing and you have no idea where it's coming from.

      Although, I wouldn't throw out the intent so quickly...these sites are not stupid...except for the first 3 anyway.

      Also, statistically, there are more liberals and more liberal activity online than conservative. If you rank sites by clicks, then you end up with liberal sites preferred. No need for conspiracy.

      Jan, uses DuckDuckGo
      (I use this because it does not recall my preferences. I want to read views that do not just reinforce my own opinions.)

    People who obtain intellectual power over others tend to puff up their heads to the point where they erroneously presume they have a mission to play Big Brother.
    We not only have gaseous fat heads in Google but also at MSNBC, CNN, PBS, the old time big three networks of TV, The New York Times, my local The Birmingham News, et als the other propaganda pushing lib fake news pompous primates, who'd screech like enraged apes over Mrs. Trump's hurricane high heels when there's nothing else to defame that day.

    Google is more subtle than Facebook, which heavily censors certain content. I've noted posts from some of those sites listed in the article disappearing. I've also seen one peculiar form of censorship, blurring images that to me don't seem inappropriate, but as explained to someone who queried them about it, were apparently "trigger" images to some who complained. I guess Facebook considers blurring and "editing" content a lesser punishment than an outright ban.

      I going to try a test, now FB only let's my stuff go to friends, anything I used to publish Public would vanish into history.
      So...I'm going to post the Klingon Hiltery poster in honor of the new ST series.
      Let you know if the image gets blurred.

      PS...haven't been on FB since I came here to the Gulch.

    If I get information on many more shackles to my freedom, I'm going to duct tape my head to keep it from exploding. If I could only get incoming mail and articles to adhere to "No Problems, Only Solutions" but even the greatest software is not that sophisticated.

    I have noticed lately that whenever I Google something controversial or political all I get are left wing sites. My husband uses DuckDuckGo. I guess I will be switching. I will also need to find a new email server and another map program.

    Okay, wait. This appears to be "a comprehensive list of great sites broken down by category that do an excellent job in their respective field," according to the article. The list does not appear to be from Google itself. Do you have any independent links that identify specific sites that Google is allegedly suppressing?

      This isn't the first time an article with an inflammatory headline from an hysterical site with no credibility has been promoted on this forum. This forum is supposed to be in support of Ayn Rand's philosophy of reason and objectivity, not kook fads and conspiracy theories.

      The list of links isn't claimed to be blackballed by Google, it's presented as a suggested bookmark list as an alternative to google searches. "Below you will find a comprehensive list of great sites broken down by category that do an excellent job in their respective field. I urge everyone to bookmark this page and make it their go to when searching for news on politics, health and prepping."

      That is the opposite of the article's misleading headline, repeated on this forum, "Bookmark This: Over 400 Links Google Doesn’t Want You To Visit".

      The quotes from google are guidelines used in searches for factual information, they don't support the claim that it "doesn't want you to visit" them:

      "Pages that directly contradict well established scientific or medical consensus for queries seeking scientific or medical information, unless the query indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.

      "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.
      "

      Yet this is called a "Gestapo like ... plan to suppress any information they deem unfit for readers" in an alleged "war on truth [that] has reached a fever pitch as Google has made it their mission to annihilate the independent media".

      One can question google's standards for what it regards as "well established" science, medical practice and history, but that isn't what the article is about.

    "-Pages that directly contradict well established scientific or medical consensus for queries seeking scientific or medical information, unless the query indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.

    -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.


    These two guidelines provided by Google should set off alarm bells to anyone who has a thirst for knowledge or anyone that has the audacity to examine both sides of a topic." [bolded by me]

    There is nothing sinister about this. If I'm searching for medical information, I don't want to read about homeopathy. If I'm searching for history, I don't want to read about holocaust denial. The text says unless the query indicates that. So if they're honest in their implementation, if I search for info on these topics, I can still get it. They're just keeping it from showing up in ordinary searches. I don't want "both sides of a topic." If I search for the orbit of the planets, I don't want to read about the other "side" that says the earth is flat.

      "I don't want to read about the other "side" that says the earth is flat."

      It's good for a laugh anyway...otherwise you wouldn't know there are creatures that believe that...therefore, you wouldn't recognize the language and get sucked in.

      I know already you are going to tell me you won't get sucked in and because you are a gulcher, I also know your not a progressive.

      The other point you are missing is that progressives and liberals do not follow their own stated rules. That's my observation anyway.
