Google buries Mercola in their latest search engine update, Part 2 of 2

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Google’s June 2019 broad core algorithm update, which started taking effect June 3, and its updated quality rater guidelines have effectively removed Mercola.com from Google search results
  • When entering a health-related search word into Google, you will no longer find Mercola.com articles in the search results. The only way to locate Mercola articles is by adding “Mercola.com” to the search word(s) in question
  • One of the primary sources Google’s quality raters are instructed to use when assessing the expertise, authoritativeness and trustworthiness of an author or site is Wikipedia
  • Wikipedia is censoring information and crafting narratives to benefit certain groups; it started censoring information and blocking editors shortly after its inception. Co-founder Larry Sanger calls Wikipedia “a broken system”
  • Together with Amazon, Apple and Facebook, Google is amassing “an army” of lobbyists — 75% of which have served in government or on political campaigns — to ensure survival as antitrust investigations into the four companies get underway
