    This is interesting. Please note I do not necessarily endorse all of this writers beliefs or articles shared below, but what I find interesting is that a week ago he published this article below, wherein he claims to have been threatened: http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-02-...estroy-alex-jones-or-we-will-destroy-you.html

    Then a week later his website Natural News has 140k pages deindexed from google. See story by writer here: http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-02-...oles-natural-news-investigative-articles.html

    Normally Id just pass up a story like this, but I happened to read the original article last week where he claims he was threatened, and then BAM Complete Deindexation.

    Sharing this here, not for political purposes, but rather to point out that people with certain niches (politics, natural news, health sites etc) You might start seeing some issues in the future if you already have not when it comes to being indexed in Google.

    If it's fake news I don't mind it at all, if it was real news & info sharing then this is just a dick move.

    But this is exactly how you go from potential millionaire to a potential hobo

    1. Google isn't the only way to get traffic and its not even the only search engine
    2. Just Increase the quality of a such a site with actual peer reviewed studies instead of junk.

    Good news, it might speed up the emergence of Google's competitors.

    There is no way Natural News would've been doing any shady SEO, I've seen that site grow naturally for years and years. What penalty could this even be? Usually the only reason you get deindexed is a "pure spam" penalty... even unnatural links isn't a full deindexing. Thin content perhaps? Doubtful, some of the articles on that site are long and well-researched.

    I think the key here is a small quote from the first link:

    Reading that quote, my first thought is the guy is a nut case. Trump, or no Trump, the anti-vaxers position has been pretty thoroughly debunked, ditto with the biotech industry being harmful.

    There will always be the conspiracy theorist - including Alex Jones....

    Lmao

    Edit: I don't believe a word in either of those articles. They both sound like they were written by someone with an obvious agenda.

    I see that they got deindexed, so that much is true. The rest of those articles just read like one long rant by a very unstable person who just wants attention.

    Google overreaching here, the term "fake news" is bull. If any news is fake it's the news you see on the television, yet they are treated as totally credible. This is just a way to chop down competition that doesn't tell the story the way they like.

    I am sure that you are referencing current medical studies like the following:
    The scientific, versus alarmist and extremist, evidence does not support a causal link between vaccinations and autism. Google Scholar can help you here as the articles are far too numerous to quote all of the studies. Here is your link to Google Scholar and the search I used:
    https://scholar.google.com/scholar?...ved=0ahUKEwigxfKK-KXSAhUB2oMKHcPiB4EQgQMILzAA

    Nothing in the world is truly free, but you can get a free flu shot.

    Take that flu shot if you want, just remember you are paying for it whether you know it or not.

    Sorry that just does not cut it. The evidence and research suggest that it is aluminum and manganese that are the source of increased autism. Need I remind you that most cookware today is aluminum and that manganese is used to treat aluminum? As far as doctors, I have a heart condition and heart disease (CAD) the doctors insisted that I take statins. After numerous negative effects that Dr.s say are rare (< 10%) with statin use (though the patients differ > 40%) I stopped taking statins the side effects stopped though there is no some long term damage that I may never get over. So much for a doctor. The research is what is more important than what the doctor says.

    there are alarmists and extremist in just about every walk of life. Almost all of it is supported by self confirmation bias ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias) rather than scientific data.

    Yes. Mine cost two heart attacks before placement on a five year research program involving high dosage of flu vaccines.
