Automated Machine-Generated Transcript:

[00:00:00] Hey, the Russians are interfering with our election. But, how much of an impact are they having? Let me tell you, we got some stats here on Google that is shocking.

You're listening to Craig Peterson here on WGAN of course, online on your favorite podcasting app. I'd love for you to follow me and following me and subscribing to me. And my podcast really, really helps because that shows me that hopefully, you're listening. Right.

I don't really know, but it does show people that I have a good show that's worth listening to, because of those stats. Right. It would really help me. I appreciate it. It would be a wonderful thing. Share it with your friends and family. Isn't that what they say all the time.

 [00:01:00] So back to this article here. This is, again from Breitbart, and it's talking about election interference. One of the things that are absolutely not shocking to me is that Google is interfering in elections all over the country and has been for a couple of years. About two years ago, I talked about a study and I showed it, I think it was Orange County, California that was showing what Google was doing to conservative results.

Now, I don't know why. Right? Because Google and Facebook both said, Hey, we're not going to interfere so much, especially Facebook. And Facebook, this week started interfering. They deleted one of president Trump's accounts, Twitter. Suspended him, uh, his account until he deleted it himself. It's incredible.

[00:02:00] What's going on right now, but before the break, we were talking about search visibility. Because that's how we are found online. Right, sir, ginger, and optimization. One of the things, every business I haven't considered a man maybe tried to do, it's a little harder to do today than it was 20 years ago. But it is something that you pretty much have to do.

You have to look at it and say, well, how is a search engine going to look at and grade what I'm doing here? Well, new data is showing that Google has suppressed Breitbart's search visibility by 99.7%. Since the last presidential election cycle. You heard that right! Google suppressed bright Bard search by 99.7% since.

[00:03:00] The last election. So they have posted some statistics using third-party software and third-parties statistical analysis, which I think is important too. Right. We don't just take  Breitbart's word or some of this stuff. So in 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top 10 search positions, in other words, above the fold for 355 key search terms.

But now Breitbart is ranking in the top 10 search positions for only one search terms. So they went from 355 key search terms. So if you typed in this term 355 terms that they were trying to be known for, you would see Breitbart in the top 10. And now there's only one that it shows up for. Isn't that amazing.

[00:04:00] So, uh, back in 2016, uh, Breitbart ranked in the top 100 search positions for 17,000 key search terms. But now. By bark ranks in the top 100 positions for only 55 search terms. Are you listening? Are you paying attention to these numbers, election interference by the Russians, which was denied by everyone who testified to shifts committee?

Now that we have those transcripts out, every last one of them said they knew of no evidence of any collusion with the Russians. And yet we're looking at these sorts of numbers in 2016, before the top executives at Google had their little meeting saying we got to do something about Donald Trump and my words here, make sure he doesn't get reelected Breitbart, which is a conservative website, went from having almost 17,000 key search terms.

[00:05:00] That it was known for in the top hundred service search position down to 55. Amazing, absolutely amazing. So organic search traffic to Breitbart is down 63%. Again, comparing it back to 2016 and you look at some of these charts and I'm going to pull one up here on my screen and it is shocking. So in 2017, Google had what they called.

It's Fred update. Google does updates to its algorithms, to its programs, and they do a couple of times a year-ish. Sometimes they do it more. So in 2017 that Fred update. Dropped their visibility. So this is a visibility index published by a third party showing that goo, that Breitbart was up at seven. And then after that Fred update, they dropped down to four in their visibility, and then we move into 2018.

[00:06:00] And it's still in between one and two on this visibility index out of seven. And then it drops down to little less than, yeah. Like, um, looks like about 0.1 and then in July, 2019 updated had a little tick up uptick and then. One way down. So what does way down mean? They've got these maps up on their website showing what's been happening.

The first drop took place, as I said shortly after the 2016 election, the second took place in July of 2019 and the third in may of this year. So unless you type Breitbart into the search bar, You're highly unlikely to get any bright Bart content search results, and Breitbart search results for Joe Biden and other Biden related search terms have gone to zero, absolutely zero and E that's true.

[00:07:00] Even if you search for Breitbart news headlines, you probably won't find them in Google search. That's how bad it is. So Google killed all search fuck to Breitbart for Joe Biden and Joe Biden related searches. It's just absolutely amazing. So on May 1st Google searches for Joe Biden generated about 30,000 impressions for bright bark links.

That means that w Breitbart was shown 30,000 times after May 5th. Both impressions and clicks went to zero. Yeah, they, they spoke Breitbart spoke to a 25-year industry veteran who analyzes traffic from Google's own website portal, their, their search console. And he said he had never seen anything, anything like this graph and it indicates highly probable manipulation on the part of Google.

[00:08:00] It's really, it's a wholesaler. And the search engine experts said he's never seeing such a wholesale removal of rank and visibility on specific concepts on a site. But he, that he's seen here applied to Breitbart. It's absolutely amazing. Yeah. The percentage of traffic to Breitbart from Google search 9% is just a fraction of the average publishers, which is 30 to 50%.

In fact, in the New York times, their percentage is currently 40%. At the moment Google's responsible for 9% of Breitbart's traffic and youtube is sending a negligible amount if any. So it looks like Breitbart's listed on one or more of Google's blacklists, hidden away, nothing to see here. All we're doing is interfering with an election.

Which they have done before. Plenty of evidence. I've seen studies out of universities on this over the years, we've got to do something about this. What. I'm sorry, I don't have a great answer for, I think maybe we just take away their immunity from prosecution. Maybe that will wake them up a little bit.

[00:09:00] Hey, when we come back, we're going to talk about Intel. Why is Intel on such a downward trend? This is not investment advice, but uh, Hey, some heads of rolling over there at Intel. I think we're seeing major changes on the horizon and I'll tell you why.

You're listening to Craig Peterson here on WGAN and online@craigpeterson.com.

Stick around. We'll be right back.
