Shocking Proof How Google Censors Health News

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Google’s June 2019 update, which took effect June 3, effectively removed Mercola.com from Google search results
  • When entering a health-related search word into Google, you no longer find Mercola.com articles in the search results. Instead, you find links to plagiarized articles uploaded without permission by unranked sites
  • You also can no longer locate the most pertinent Mercola articles by doing a selective search for my site, as Google provides search results for my veterinary pages instead
  • YouTube also now buries Mercola videos even when doing a selective search
  • The “Google-trusted” health websites that now dominate health searches are WebMD and Healthline, both of which promote health-harming drugs and junk food with their articles

June 3, 2019, Google implemented a broad “core update” that in one fell swoop eliminated most Mercola.com pages from its search results. Virtually overnight, Google traffic to my site dropped by approximately 99.9%.

Considering Mercola.com has been the most visited natural health site for the last 16 years, it’s no great surprise that we were listed as one of the biggest losers in Google’s June algorithm update.
