With the 2020 election arriving in a matter of less than 100 days now, everyone is looking for every single advantage that they can get.
This election, like those that came before it, is being billed as the “most important election of our lifetime”. This is, of course, the media’s way of asking us to pay more attention to them every four years, when our attention spans are splintering into thousands of little, political pieces.
To make matters worse, particularly for conservatives, finding news written in their voice has become even harder, as fascist technocrats continue to censor anything that leans to the right.
Breitbart News has grown enraged at this reality, and has now provided a rather large pile of evidence depicting Google’s work to subvert their reach.
Google Has Been Purging Breitbart Content from Search Results Since the 2016 Election
Search visibility is a key industry measure of how findable a publisher’s content is in Google search. New data shows that Google has suppressed Breitbart’s search visibility by 99.7 percent since 2016.
On April 4, 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top ten search positions (i.e., on the first page of Google search results) for 355 key search terms; but now, as of July 20, 2020, Breitbart ranks in the top ten search positions for only one search term. And, on April 4, 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top 100 search positions for 16,820 key search terms; but now, as of July 20, 2020, Breitbart ranks in the top 100 search positions for only 55 search terms.
Moreover, organic Google search traffic to Breitbart (measured by unique visitors) is down 63 percent when comparing the first half of 2016 with the first half of 2020.
The following chart shows the visibility of Breitbart content in the Google search engine since 2011. It shows that Google has nearly eliminated Breitbart content from its search results.
The SISTRIX Visibility Index ranks a website’s visibility in Google by looking at its ranking in a million search terms.
The great irony, of course, is that Google and others within the leftist mob on the Silicon Valley throne were heavy promoters of the “RussiaGate” conspiracy theory that was meant to delegitimize the 2016 candidacy of Donald Trump, despite the fact that Robert Mueller spent 22 months and $25 million to find no crime by Trump.
Their censorship of the other side of the story is simply offensive to the First Amendment.
