Claims that Google Search improperly downranks some websites are frequent but not always correct, and they’re hard to prove even if they are. But the latest available (May 2017) Google Search Quality Evaluation General Guidelines provide conclusive proof of intentional, severe, and malicious suppression of climate realist views. A quote:
“High quality information pages on scientific topics should represent well established scientific consensus on issues where such consensus exists.” (Section 3.2)
But the allegations of “scientific consensus” are made only in one field – climate alarmism! “Scientific consensus” is almost an oxymoron. Consensus is a decision-making method used outside of science. This language is inserted in the guidelines with only one purpose – to eliminate climate realism websites from the results, shown to Google Search users. This discrimination is exacerbated by classifying “news about important topics such as international events, business, politics, science, and technology;” as Your Money or Your Life (YMYL) Pages, for which Google claims to have especially high quality standards. Classification of news as Your Money or Your Life Pages (which includes medical, legal, financial, and safety advice) is obviously intended to suppress political information that differs from the opinions of the leftstream media and Wikipedia, which Google considers the guardians of truth. That is why WUWT and other climate realism websites are so well hidden by Google Search.
