THE REALLY UGLY TRUTH ABOUT GOOGLE


Anybody who doesn't believe Google are manipulating searches should try typing "Fuck Google" into their search engine and see how many results come up? Now try it with any other search engine like Yahoo or Bing and watch how many come up. 69,900,000 results on yahoo ZERO on google.

Absolute proof Google manipulate searches and concentrate promoting corporate interests while avoiding the truth of what is going on across the globe. As we have been warning for a very long time Google are becoming a major liability in the search engine arena . They have turned into a collector of data for their own use and law enforcement interests .

Since becoming highly critical of the Google henchmen that think they can forever dominate and control web searches we have found deeply worrying developments in their search engine criteria. From a company, that in its early stages, ensured an unbiased search for information it has now turned into one that is increasingly going out of its way to suppress information.

This should come as nothing new to the alternative news outlets who have seen massive drops in their statistics from google who push searchers towards their global corporate friends in the mass media. The above is only one example but recently our website was the first website that came up on Google when anyone globally searched for "Hollie Greig" as we have created an extensive archive of this very sinister case it was no surprise that Google felt that archive warranted its position .

However after exposing Google in scathing critique's about how they NO LONGER provide accuracy in their search criteria and more importantly they now have an extreme bias against ANY critical look at their operations that webpage relating to the 'Hollie Greig' case has completely dropped out of the search results on Google that is despite Yahoo and Bing placing that page high on their list of search results.

It seems Google are increasingly following in the footsteps of the compliant media and ensuring they bury anything that may upset the powers that be.

    Google receives four requests a day to help the police with criminal inquiries

    The government and police forces are making four requests to Google every single day for information on British users, new figures reveals. The Internet search engine received 1,455 demands for data between June and December 2011, mostly in relation to criminal inquiries. There were also 49 requests for content to be taken down on behalf of the government and police over the same period.

    The figures are a 22 per cent increase over the same period last year and shows the growing amount of behind-the-scenes data that is being collected from Britons. And whilst the statistics are the most comprehensive out of any Internet search provider, Google has refused to reveals who exactly is making the requests - and what they are after.

    Only one instance has been given any substantial detail, a request from the Association of Chief Police Officers to remove five user accounts on YouTube that allegedly promoted terrorism. The request was granted and 640 videos were taken off the site.

    The figures are in Google’s twice-yearly Transparency Report and show that Britain ranks fourth in the world for the number of times information has been requested by government agencies behind the US, India and Brazil. The data which has been requested covers everything from blog posts to photo albums, profiles on Google’s social network Google+ and search engine results.

    Of the 1,455 requests some 64 per cent were granted affecting a total of 1,764 users. Separately there were the 49 content removal requests covering 849 items made to Google. Some 55 per cent of these requests were granted.

    The majority were for content on YouTube and most of the requests came from ‘executive and police’ agencies, but Google has refused to elaborate further. It did however give some insight into the reasons why the information was being sought. The 49 requests included 14 due to ‘privacy and security’, seven due to violent content and four were due to hate speech.

    Google has recently come under fire over its Street View service amid claims it deliberately harvested information from millions of UK home computers via wi-fi. The Information Commissioner has re-opened its investigation into the affair after American regulators found the Street View software was designed to capture passwords and emails. It is two years since Google first admitted stealing fragments of personal data, but claimed it was a ‘mistake’ at the beginning.

    Dorothy Chou, senior policy analyst at Google, said: ‘Unfortunately, what we’ve seen over the past couple years has been troubling, and today is no different. ‘When we started releasing this data in 2010, we also added annotations with some of the more interesting stories behind the numbers. We noticed that government agencies from different countries would sometimes ask us to remove political content that our users had posted on our services. We hoped this was an aberration. But now we know it’s not.

    ‘This is the fifth data set that we’ve released. And just like every other time before, we’ve been asked to take down political speech. ‘It’s alarming not only because free expression is at risk, but because some of these requests come from countries you might not suspect—Western democracies not typically associated with censorship.’

    Sinister truth about Google spies: Street View cars stole information from British households but executives 'covered it up' for years

    Work of Street View cars to be examined over allegations Google used them to download personal details
    Emails, texts, photos and documents taken from wi-fi networks as cars photographed British roads
    Engineer who designed software said a privacy lawyer should be consulted
    Calls for police and Information Commissioner to investigate new evidence

    Google is facing an inquiry into claims that it deliberately harvested information from millions of UK home computers. The Information Commissioner data protection watchdog is expected to examine the work of the internet giant’s Street View cars. They downloaded emails, text messages, photographs and documents from wi-fi networks as they photographed virtually every British road.

    It is two years since Google first admitted stealing fragments of personal data, but claimed it was a ‘mistake’. Now the full scale of its activities has emerged amid accusations of a cover-up after US regulators found a senior manager was warned as early as 2007 that the information was being captured as its cars trawled the country but did nothing. Around one in four home networks in the UK is thought to be unsecured – lacking password protection – allowing personal data to be collected. Technology websites and bloggers have suggested that Google harvested the information simply because it was able to do so and would later work out a way to use it to make money.

    The slow reaction of the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) to deal with the data theft is in direct contrast to the vigorous efforts of watchdogs in Germany, France and even the Czech Republic. The fact that the Government was at the same time courting executives at Google opens up uncomfortable questions about its relationship with the company. Last month a report by the US media regulator the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) revealed that the Google programmer who wrote the Street View software repeatedly warned that it collected personal data, and called for a legal and privacy review.

    Yesterday he was named as Marius Milner, 41, a British software engineer from Hove, East Sussex, who now lives in California. He has pleaded the fifth amendment against self-incrimination and refused to answer investigators’ questions. Yesterday at the family home, his stepmother said: ‘He has always had a love of computers, even from an early age I think. He is a brilliant mind. 'He got a degree from Trinity College, Cambridge. My husband is an elderly man. He is nearly 90 and he is rather distressed by this. We really don’t want to say any more.’

    The report by the FCC attacked Google for inadequate oversight of Street View, and claimed it was planning to use the data collected for other internal projects. A spokesman for the Information Commissioner’s Office said it would examine what Google knew at the time and whether it breached the Data Protection Act. But critics said the ICO was doing ‘too little, too late’, and pointed to its earlier report into Street View which concluded that any collection of personal data was ‘inadvertent’.

    As Britain’s privacy watchdog was accused of being lily-livered in its handling of Google, regulators in the US and continental Europe confronted it head on. In Germany Google was forced to stop filming for Street View owing to privacy concerns by Hamburg prosecutors, who opened a criminal investigation. In France Google was fined £87,000 by the privacy regulator CNIL, the largest it had ever handed out.

    In the Czech Republic Street View was banned in September 2010 after negotiations between Google and the authorities over privacy concerns failed. A Tory MP said he would raise the issue of Google’s information gathering when Parliament reconvenes. Robert Halfon said: ‘The FCC report seems to indicate that there is far more to it than an innocent mistake. Clearly what happened is unacceptable.

    'Google created the privatised surveillance society by hoovering up our emails and wifi data. Google has some serious questions to answer.’ Concern about links between the internet giant and the Government have emerged in recent weeks, with the Daily Mail revealing that Tory ministers have met Google executives an average of once every month since the General Election. This week Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt will face the Leveson Inquiry to face questions about his links to another multi-national company, News International.

    His special adviser Adam Smith was forced to quit after text messages were published by the inquiry showing his closeness to a News International lobbyist. Mr Hunt has also faced repeated calls to quit. Nick Pickles, director of Big Brother Watch said: ‘It appears Google deliberately and without remorse spied on people’s wi-fi networks and has now been caught trying to cover it up. 'The continued thirst of big-data companies for personal information is a serious threat to privacy and all too often consumers find themselves without redress when their rights are compromised.’

    Cameron and Hunt attend Google executive's wedding

    Guests of the Google bride: Close links between Google and the Conservative Party were on display this weekend at the society wedding of senior Google executive Naomi Gummer. Miss Gummer, a former political secretary to Jeremy Hunt, married Henry Allsopp, 38, in an Oxfordshire ceremony attended by Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha, as well as the embattled Culture Secretary, who came with his wife and their two young children A spokesman for the Information Commissioner said: ‘We are currently studying the FCC report to consider what further action, if any, needs to be taken.

    Google provided our office with a formal undertaking in November 2010 about their future conduct, following their failure in relation to the collection of wi-fi data by their Street View cars. ‘This included a provision for the ICO to audit Google’s privacy practices. The audit was published in August 2011 and we will be following up on it later this year, to ensure our recommendations have been put in place.’ Google spokesman Anthony House said: ‘We have always been clear that the leaders of this project did not want or intend to use this payload data. Indeed Google never used it in any of our products or services. ‘Both the Department of Justice and the FCC have looked into this closely – including reviewing the internal correspondence – and both found no violation of law.’

    CLAIMS OF INNOCENCE THAT SLOWLY UNRAVELLED

    OCTOBER 2006: Computer engineer Marius Milner devises software for Google Street View vans which captures private information from personal computers. He warns there are privacy implications and the company should consult lawyers.

    MAY 2007: Google Street View launched in the US.

    2008: Milner again warns two colleagues – including a senior manager – that personal data is being collected.

    MARCH 2009: Street View launches in the UK.

    EARLY 2010: UK data protection watchdog, the Information Commissioner (ICO) launches inquiry into Street View.

    APRIL 27 2010: Google denies collecting information, only to admit a few days later: ‘We have been mistakenly collecting samples of data from open Wi-Fi networks ... Quite simply, it was a mistake’.

    OCTOBER 22 2010: Google admits: ‘In some instances entire emails were captured ... as well as passwords.’

    NOVEMBER 2010: ICO secures formal undertaking that Google will improve data protection compliance but concludes any collection of personal data was ‘inadvertent’.

    JANUARY to SEPT 2011: Google refuses four times to co-operate with US Federal Communications Commission, before finally giving some key information such as names of employees who created Street View software.

    APRIL 16 2012: Google fined £15,000 by FCC after it found the company ‘wilfully and repeatedly’ failed to help with its investigation.

    APRIL 30 2012: FCC report finds that rather than being ‘a mistake’ Google’s software was ‘intended’ to harvest information from networks.

    MAY 27 2012: ICO indicates inquiry into Street View’s harvested data.

    CONNECT THEN CONTROL AND SPY
    TWITTER'S HIDDEN AGENDA
    twitter Like every new communications tool on the internet we do tests to see the effectiveness of how they operate. Any internet tool promoted by the corporate media always gives cause for concern especially if the BBC think it is a good idea. The BBC have been pushing radical feminist and homosexual agenda's for so long it makes most of their news coverage laughable the degree to which they ignore crimes of those they want to protect in that agenda. Heterosexual men have been bashed endlessly, by not only the BBC but GMTV , while homosexuality is promoted as the moral compass that is the direction the UK should be going. Some critics might question why the corporate media are so biased in their reporting?

    The British government fear heterosexual men more than any other group in society. It has been heterosexual men throughout history that have overthrown tyranny from both ruthless monarchy's and governments and it is always in their interest to ensure those men are kept in their place. None more so than in the family courts were the crown's masonic judges fleece men of their assets and homes physically and mentally reducing them to such a position were they have little strength or energy to fight the deepening UK police state. Many women now realise this as they face the same horrors of British courts and the theft of their children when the father is removed from their childrens lives.

    Going back to twitter it seems from our own tests of twitter, like the corporate media who heavily promote this relatively new communications gizmo, that they have ways to ensure the usual broadcasters featured on the corporate media get far more exposure than the rest of us lesser mortals. Who ultimately wont benefit from Twitter, as the same corporate message will always get maximum exposure due to how twitters operating system can flush out anything that does not endlessly repeat the mantra of corporate media dupes and goons who get maximum exposure for drawing the crowds. The sheeple are still drawn to the personalities the Zionist controlled media promote and who wont rock the establishment boat. Twitter is another area were they are subtly dominating us with celebrity messages while masking the real agenda of what Twitter has evolved into. Another tool for the same mob that controls the corporate media to pull the wool over our eyes. Look at where their venture capitalist money is coming from to know where their agenda's lie?

    WE AIM TO BE NOTHING LIKE TWITTER WITH 'QUALITY' NOT QUANTITY AND WHERE BILLIONS OF PIECES OF USELESS INFORMATION ARE GENERATED THAT ARE OF LITTLE OR NO INTEREST TO MEN. WHEN THE BBC CONTINUALLY PROMOTE 'TWITTER' AND 'FACEBOOK' TO SUCH A DEGREE WE HAVE A RIGHT TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT THE AGENDA BEHIND THE MASS COLLECTION OF DATA ON US ALL.

    GOOGLE REMOVING MASONS FROM THEIR MAPS
    masons yard

    One of our exposures on how freemasons operate and control London and with global tentacles was of images around St. James Square on Google maps and how Chatham House, formerly known as the Royal Institute of International Affairs, backs onto 10 Duke Street St. James the haunt of the 33 degree freemasons that are the power behind the Royal parasites. We have been updating our archives and needed another image capture of that area for more exposures on the masonic mafia and noticed Google have updated their maps and REMOVED a small lane off of Duke Street St. James called Masons yard from their latest maps of that area , as can be seen above, showing clearly how the yard has been shortened and the name removed .

    The fact Chatham House has been identified in close proximity to a 33 degree freemason haunt and potentially has a means for these scumbags to flit between the two buildings unseen, as most it not all of Britain's prime ministers are 33 degree freemasons (in particular Churchill) before they can even consider running for that position and using a visit to Chatham House they could easily then secretly attend satanic oath swearing ceremonies at 10 Duke Street via the backdoor. Chatham House is likely a front for the Royals henchmen to indoctrinate political leaders and their legal mafia lackeys as a way to avoid scrutiny and as to why they frequent 33 degree freemason halls.

  • FACEBOOK IS A CIA DATABANK
    by Sandeep Parwaga (henrymakow.com)

    In my Feb. 16 article ''Facebook & Google are CIA Fronts,'' I argued that Facebook and Google data mine information about you. This is now public knowledge.

    The Associated Press reported November 4 that the CIA has an entire center dedicated to monitoring Facebook and Twitter. They also monitor TV stations and print newspapers and . "The Open Source Center," established in 2005 by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence , has been operating since the 9/11 Commission's call for foreign counterintelligence. Though the CIA claims it only monitors foreign activity, I am skeptical. Not only been the CIA been using proxies, but has devoted an entire center for that operation.

    Facebook A Privacy-Eroding Network, Not Social Network

    Remember when Mark Zuckerberg called his users ''dumb f****''? If that is not a clear sign of the disdain for the Facebook users, consider these new disturbing facts. Nik Cubrilovic, an entrepreneur, hacker and writer, revealed that Facebook tracked and stored the Internet browsing of its 750 million users even after they had left the site. This blog story gained mainstream attention and Facebook conceded it had happened, but denied it was intentional and used for tracking.

    In my last article, I mentioned that you should avoid clicking on trivial buttons on Facebook, for example the ''Likes'', because I assumed there was something shady about it. I discovered recently that when you click on any Like button, you are opening yourself up to being tracked by Facebook. When Zuckerberg announced the ''Like system'' during a conference (called F8) in 2010 promoting it to make the web more ''social'' and ''smarter'', cnet.com reported '' What Zuckerberg didn't point out is that widespread use of the Like button allows Facebook to track people as they switch from CNN.com to Yelp.com to ESPN.com, all of which are sites that have said they will implement the feature.''

    According to the article, ''Even if someone is not a Facebook user or is not logged in, Facebook's social plug-ins collect the address of the Web page being visited and the Internet address of the visitor as soon as the page is loaded--clicking on the Like button is not required. If enough sites participate, that permits Facebook to assemble a vast amount of data about Internet users' browsing habits.'' So for example, if you visit CNN.com, ''the Like system'' is able to track your move on that site simply because CNN.com is part of that system. If you then go to ESPN.com you are still being tracked by the Facebook plug-ins, so you don't really need to be a user of Facebook. Another interesting issue I have discovered was the so called ''cloud computing''. Cloud computing refers to '' the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet).''

    In an article from the Wall Street Journal, Bruce Schneier reports that cloud computing ''Is one of the fastest growing IT market segments -- 69% of Americans now use some sort of cloud computing services - '' Facebook also uses this cloud computing system. Mr. Schneier links articles that outline the fact that the cloud computing system is anything but secure and private. According to Mr. Schneier, Google's Terms of Service ''explicitly disavow any warranty or any liability for harm that might result from Google's negligence, recklessness, malevolent intent, or even purposeful disregard of existing legal obligations to protect the privacy and security of user data.''

    Facebook does exactly the same through its Statement of Principles and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. Apple has also launched the cloud computing system recently. If you thought that was enough, check this out. Facebook has started a system that can recognize faces so it makes it easier for ''friends'' to tag you. There is not much to say about this, except that it is a very creepy technology. This system has gained funding from the government to track so called ''terrorists''. Now Facebook does that for the government as well.

    CONCLUSION

    If we think about it, Facebook is nothing but a big Orwellian spy grid. All Facebook's offerings ultimately lead to being tracked. A few months ago I decided to ''delete'' my Facebook account for good. Besides all the Orwellian reasons I ''deleted'' my account, I also considered Mark Dice's Youtube clip ''Defriend Day''. Dice says that people's homes got robbed when they post a vacation status or kids got busted for underage drinking. The Open Source Center director admits that overseas individuals are being monitored which I suspect is only half the truth. Let's not forget the tremendous amount of lies that have come from the establishment in the past years regarding monitoring and privacy.

    For example, it was well known that the FISA law (Foreign Intelligence Service Act) not only spied on foreigners, but on domestic citizens as well. If you have any concern for your privacy, I would recommend what I recommended before: 1) Try to keep a low profile. 2) Don't reveal anything personal or don't click on trivial buttons, for example the ''Likes'' 3) Use alternatives to make contact if you can, e.g. email or other messengers. 4) Get rid off it for good.

  • GOOGLE ASKED TO REMOVE 135 YOUTUBE VIDEO'S FOR 'UK NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUES'
    US technology giant reports 71% rise in content removal requests from UK government or police

    Google revealed figures for YouTube content removal requests in its biannual transparency report

    British police authorities ordered the removal of 135 videos from YouTube in the first half of this year because of a perceived threat to national security, according to figures published by the video sharing website's owner Google. The US technology giant reported a 71% rise in content removal requests from the UK government or police, compared with the final half of 2010, with almost 200 YouTube videos requested to be taken down following complaints about privacy, security or hate speech.

    Google revealed the figures in its biannual transparency report, part of an effort to highlight online censorship across the world. The report shows that private information about 1,443 British users or accounts was demanded by law enforcement agencies between January and June this year. It is the first time Google has revealed how many users the data requests relate to.

    Google received 1,273 overall requests for user data in the period, compared with 1,162 requests for information in the second half of 2010. The UK government made 65 content removal requests from all of Google's products in the six months to June, up from 38 requests in the previous half year.

    Fears over national security saw take down requests for 135 videos from YouTube, with a further 62 for privacy, security or hate speech issues. Almost 30 items were requested to be removed from Google search after two court orders relating to privacy and security, the report shows, with 14 items because of defamation issues. Google said it fully or partially complied with 82% of requests from the UK government, police and courts.

  • WILL STEVE JOBS' FINAL VENDETTA HAUNT GOOGLE?
    Google can only hope that Steve Jobs' final vendetta doesn't haunt the Internet search leader from his grave.

    The depths of Jobs' antipathy toward Google leaps out of Walter Isaacson's authorized biography of Apple's co-founder. The book goes on sale Monday, less than three weeks after Jobs' long battle with pancreatic cancer culminated in his Oct. 5 death. The Associated Press obtained a copy Thursday. The biography drips with Jobs' vitriol as he discusses his belief that Google stole from Apple's iPhone to build many of the features in Google's Android software for rival phones. It's clear that the perceived theft represented an unforgiveable act of betrayal to Jobs, who had been a mentor to Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin and had welcomed Google's CEO at the time, Eric Schmidt, to be on Apple's board.

    Jobs retaliated with a profane manifesto during a 2010 conversation with his chosen biographer. Isaacson wrote that he never saw Jobs angrier in any of their conversations, which covered a wide variety of emotional topics during a two-year period. After equating Android to "grand theft" of the iPhone, Jobs lobbed a series of grenades that may blow a hole in Google's image as an innovative company on a crusade to make the world a better place. "I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong," Jobs told Isaacson. "I'm going to destroy Android because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go to thermonuclear war on this. They are scared to death because they know they are guilty."

    Jobs then used a crude word for defecation to describe Android and other products outside of search. Android now represents one of the chief threats to the iPhone. Although iPhones had a head start and still draw huge lines when new models go on sale, Android devices sold twice as well in the second quarter. According to Gartner, Android's market share grew 2 1/2 times to 43 percent, compared with 17 percent a year earlier. The iPhone's grew as well, but by a smaller margin — to 18 percent, from 14 percent. Both Google and Apple declined comment to The Associated Press when asked about Jobs' remarks. Jobs' attack is troubling for Google on several levels.

    It suggests that Apple, which has pledged to be true to Jobs' vision, may try to derail Android in court, even if Google obtains more patent protection through its proposed $12.5 billion acquisition of phone maker Motorola Mobility Inc. The derision comes across as a bitter pill for Page and Brin, who have hailed Jobs as one of their idols. It also appears to contradict Schmidt's repeated assertions that he remained on friendly terms with Jobs even after he resigned from Apple's board in 2009. Most of all, Google should be worried whether the Android brand is damaged by the withering criticism of a revered figure whose public esteem seems to have risen as friends, colleagues and customers paid tribute over the past few weeks. "The words of cultural icons have a lot of power after death," veteran technology analyst Rob Enderle said. "This almost sounds like a spiritual leader declaring a jihad on Android as his dying wish."

    Apple fans tend to be fiercely loyal, making it more feasible to envision an anti-Android movement taking shape like some kind of political protest, Enderle said. It's also possible that Jobs' criticisms of Google may be seen as hypocritical. That's because some of Apple's computing breakthroughs were based on technology developed by others. The Mac's easy-to-use interface and its mouse controller, for instance, came out of Xerox Corp. The bitter divide between two of the most beloved and successful technology companies would have seemed inconceivable a few years ago.

    In 2006, Google and Apple were on such friendly terms that Jobs welcomed Schmidt to Apple's board of directors with these words: "Like Apple, Google is very focused on innovation and we think Eric's insights and experience will be very valuable in helping to guide Apple in the years ahead," Jobs said. But in 2008, a year after the iPhone came out, Google unveiled plans to release Android as a free software system that phone makers can use to make devices that compete with the iPhone. Jobs was so infuriated that he went to Google's Mountain View headquarters — about nine miles from Apple's Cupertino office— to try to stop the project, according to the biography. Jobs' persuasive powers failed to sway Google's leaders.

    Now, more than 550,000 devices running on Android are being activated each day. Apple, meanwhile, sold about 3 million fewer iPhones than anticipated in the July-September quarter, contributing to a sharp drop in the company's stock. The newest Android challenger to the iPhone, the Galaxy Nexus from Samsung, is scheduled to go on sale next month. Although there's no indication in the book that he ever forgave Google, Jobs set aside his disdain for the company long enough to counsel Page nine months ago, according to the biography. After Google's Jan. 20 announcement that Page would replace Schmidt as CEO in April, Page called Jobs for some pointers. Jobs told Isaacson that his first instinct was to reject Page with a curt expletive, but he reconsidered as he recalled his times as a young entrepreneur listening to the advice of elder Silicon Valley statesmen including Bill Hewlett, co-founder of Hewlett-Packard Co.

    Jobs didn't mince words when Page arrived at Jobs' Palo Alto home. He told Page to build a good team of lieutenants. In his first week as Google's CEO, Page reshuffled his management team to eliminate bureaucracy. Jobs also warned Page not to let Google get lazy or flabby. "The main thing I stressed was to focus," Jobs told Isaacson about his conversation with Page. "Figure out what Google wants to be when it grows up. It's now all over the map. What are the five products you want to focus on? Get rid of the rest because they're dragging you down. They're turning you into Microsoft. They're causing you to turn out adequate products that are adequate but not great."

    Page has shut more than 20 Google products and services in his first six months as Google's CEO as part of an effort to "put more wood behind fewer arrows." It was the type of discipline Jobs instilled on Apple when he returned in 1997 after a dozen years of exile. Jobs killed such products as the Newton handheld device and the PC clones that were allowed to run on Apple's operating system. It still remains to be seen whether Jobs' words of wisdom or his grievances will leave a bigger imprint on Google.

    On 13 August the site "mysteriously disappeared" from results returned for a search on "Brian Souter". Sir Brian has vowed to launch a campaign to end what he dubbed "search engine censorship". Google declined to comment on the case but said site rankings were calculated from many different measures. "It's not Google's place to decide which sites we can see and those we can't," said Sir Brian in a statement.

    The site in question, www.briansouter.com, details Sir Brian's life, includes a picture gallery and gives news updates about the Stagecoach founder. A spokesperson for the businessman said his site was not commercial and is not used for political purposes. Sir Brian's views have sometimes proved controversial, not least his campaign against the repeal in Scotland of Clause 2A which banned schools from "promoting homosexuality". He said that Google had been asked on 22 August why the site had disappeared from searches.

    The California company "mumbled" a response about changes made to its search algorithm, according to Sir Brian. In a statement Google said it could not comment on individual cases. "Our search algorithm relies on more than 200 signals to help people find the answers they're looking for, and and last year alone we made more than 500 improvements to our algorithm, while experimenting with thousands more," it said in a statement. Advice about how to improve the ranking is also believed to have been passed to Sir Brian's office.

    google ugle For years Google have blocked street views around the MASONS United Grand Lodge of England on Wild Street . Any time street view was used to enter Great Queen street there was always a road block which meant a major part of that area could not be viewed on street view.

    They have finally gotten round to publishing that area around the UGLE building which was suspicious that they never seemed to complete what they started out to do that was to map London. Are the freemasons also controlling the agenda of Google via their goons operating inside Google? How many of their staff are card carrying members of the biggest secret society on the planet?
    YOUTUBE UNPRECEDENTED NUMBER OF MISSING VIDEO'S AFTER EGYPTIAN UNREST
    As a group who have collated information over many years we have been SHOCKED at how many Egyptian video's of the uprisings have been pulled from Youtube for all sorts of spurious reasons. Some of them suggest the uploaders themselves have removed the video. So why would they take the time and effort to do so if they were only leaving them on Youtube for a very short space of time?

    We have had to remove at least 10 articles regarding Egypt as the video's that were used in conjunction with these articles have been pulled. This is a disturbing trend going on within the Youtube hierarchy , part of the Google empire who we are well aware have been censoring video's en masse . However the depths of how deep that censorship goes is only now coming to light when not only have a massive amount of Egyptian video's been pulled but video's from other countries across the region that have seen uprisings against their dictatorial leaders.

    We are beginning to see why Google wanted Youtube and now have control over large swathes of video's trying to get out the truth but something Google and Youtube seem determined to undermine.
    GOOGLE SPY COULD FACE JAILTIME
    david barksdale Teen-stalking Google engineer David Barksdale could face up to five years in prison if he were to be convicted of violating the federal Electronic Communications Privacy Act, which prohibits the intentional interception of electronic communication.

    Network engineers like Barksdale are normally granted safe harbor under the law, but that would not apply to Barksdale since his spying on four underaged teens' Google Voice and Talk accounts was not in "the normal course of business," according to tech journalist Mike Magee's TechEye. Most first time offenders get off with a mere criminal fine rather than jail time.The law also opens violators to civil suits, but the plaintiff that could demonstrate the biggest monetary loss from Barksdale's actions, Google, also wants this incident to go away as quickly as possible. So that probably won't be happening anytime soon.

  • DAVID BARKSDALE WASN'T GOOGLE'S FIRST SPYING ENGINEER
    david barksdale David Barksadale, whose online teen-stalking exploits we detailed yesterday, was actually the second engineer fired by Google for snooping on users. He was, however, the first to target kids.

    Google told TechCrunch that Barksdale's firing represented the second time it had terminated someone for snooping user data. The company didn't give any other details, except to day that the previous incident did not involve minors. Barksdale, in contrast, spied on at least four underage teens via services like Google Voice and Google Talk. The parents of those kids are probably wondering why Google waited for history to repeat itself before "significantly increasing the amount of time we spend auditing our logs," as the company says it has now done, finally.

  • FOUR QUESTIONS GOOGLE STILL NEEDS TO ANSWER ABOUT ITS CREEPY ENGINEER
    Google issued a short statement yesterday confirming our report about David Barksdale, the ex-Google engineer fired for violating users' privacy and spying on minors. But the statement did little to answer some big questions about Barksdale's conduct and Google's policies.

    Here are four questions Google still needs to answer about the Barksdale case:

    1) Has everyone whose privacy was violated by Barksdale been notified? In their statement, Google confirmed that Barksdale, a 27-year-old former Google Site Reliability Engineer, was fired in July for "breaking Google's strict internal privacy policies." But Barksdale was fired only after he had been reported to Google for spying on at least four minors over a period of months. If I had come into contact with Barksdale while he was employed at Google, I'd be left wondering if he'd ever compromised my account. Hell, I've never met the guy, but I'm still wondering. Google should announce that it has informed Barksdale's victims that their private information has been exposed. And if it hasn't notified them, it should. (Knowing how widespread Barksdale's abuses were would be nice, too.)

    2) Why weren't Barksdale's actions reported to the police? Barksdale's snooping may have broken laws under the Computer Fraud and Abuse act and/or the Stored Communications Act, according to Forbes' Kashmir Hill. Reuters reports that Google didn't involve the police because "one of the families involved asked to remain anonymous." But clearly there was a way to report this crime without exposing that family, as there were at least three others who were apparently OK with going to the cops. As security researcher Christopher Soghoian tweeted:

    When the Chinese broke into Google's servers, they called in the NSA. Yet when rogue employees peek at user data, they don't tell the govt?

    3) What specific steps is Google taking to prevent similar incidents in the future? In its statement, Google alludes to the fact that they've improved security since the Barksdale incident: "We regularly upgrade our security controls—for example, we are significantly increasing the amount of time we spend auditing our logs to ensure those controls are effective." The assumption here is that doing more of what didn't work in Barksdale's case—"auditing our logs"—will prevent future problems. But maybe a more radical solution is needed? (Gawker publisher Nick Denton suggests a "double key," which would require more than one employee to authorize access to private data, nuclear weapon launch-style. Sexy.)

    After our report was published, Google admitted an employee before Barksdale had been fired for violating their privacy policies. Two incidents like this are two too many for a company that controls as much sensitive information as Google. Users deserve to know exactly what mechanisms are in place for monitoring and preventing abuse, and how those may have been improved since Barksdale was fired.

    4) How many employees have the kind of unfettered access to accounts Barksdale had? Google's statement said, "a limited number of people will always need access to these systems if we are to operate them properly." This makes sense, but the number should be kept as close to zero as technically feasible. How many employees are allowed access to Google accounts? Dozens? Hundreds? What kinds of screening and training do these employees undergo?

    Google's statement essentially said, "Shit happens. We'll deal with it." That's not nearly enough. We'll send these questions to Google and update if we get a response.

    And here's Google's statement, to date their only public comment on the Barksdale case:

    "We dismissed David Barksdale for breaking Google's strict internal privacy policies. We carefully control the number of employees who have access to our systems, and we regularly upgrade our security controls–for example, we are significantly increasing the amount of time we spend auditing our logs to ensure those controls are effective. That said, a limited number of people will always need to access these systems if we are to operate them properly–which is why we take any breach so seriously."

  • GOOGLE ENGINEER STALKED TEENAGERS, SPIED ON CHATS
    david barksdale We entrust Google with our most private communications because we assume the company takes every precaution to safeguard our data. It doesn't. A Google engineer spied on four underage teens for months before the company was notified of the abuses.

    David Barksdale, a 27-year-old former Google engineer, repeatedly took advantage of his position as a member of an elite technical group at the company to access users' accounts, violating the privacy of at least four minors during his employment, we've learned.

    Barksdale met the kids through a technology group in the Seattle area while working as a Site Reliability Engineer at Google's Kirkland, Wash. office. He was fired in July 2010 after his actions were reported to the company. [Update: Google has confirmed the security breach. An update appears below.] It's unclear how widespread Barksdale's abuses were, but in at least four cases, Barksdale spied on minors' Google accounts without their consent, according to a source close to the incidents. In an incident this spring involving a 15-year-old boy who he'd befriended, Barksdale tapped into call logs from Google Voice, Google's Internet phone service, after the boy refused to tell him the name of his new girlfriend, according to our source. After accessing the kid's account to retrieve her name and phone number, Barksdale then taunted the boy and threatened to call her.

    In other cases involving teens of both sexes, Barksdale exhibited a similar pattern of aggressively violating others' privacy, according to our source. He accessed contact lists and chat transcripts, and in one case quoted from an IM that he'd looked up behind the person's back. (He later apologized to one for retrieving the information without her knowledge.) In another incident, Barksdale unblocked himself from a Gtalk buddy list even though the teen in question had taken steps to cut communications with the Google engineer. What motivated Barksdale to snoop on these teens is not entirely clear. Our source said Barksdale's harassment did not appear to be sexual in nature, although his online communication with the minors (such as inviting underage kids to attend to the movies with him) demonstrated extraordinarily questionable judgment on Barksdale's part. "My gut read on the situation was that there wasn't any strong sexual predatory behavior, just a lot of violating people's personal privacy," our source explained.

    Barksdale declined to speak with us by phone. Via email, however, he confirmed that he'd been fired by Google, although he refused to elaborate on the circumstances behind his departure or the specific allegations made against him. "You must have heard some pretty wild things if you think me getting fired is newsworthy," he responded by email. It seems part of the reason Barksdale snooped through the teens' Gmail and Gtalk accounts was to show off the power he had as a member of a group with broad access to company data. A self-described "hacker," Barksdale seemed to get a kick out of flaunting his position at Google, which was the case when, with a friend's consent, he pulled up the person's email account, contact list, chat transcripts, Google Voice call logs—even a list of other Gmail addresses that the friend had registered but didn't think were linked to their main account—within seconds. The friend wasn't concerned; Barksdale seemed to him to be a "silly," good-natured nerd. The parents of the teens whose Google accounts were violated by Barksdale were hardly amused, however. Several attempted to cut off Barksdale's access to their children and withdrew them from the technology group where they'd first encountered the Google engineer. (Barksdale was kicked out of the group after his abuses came to light.) In July, officials at Google were notified of Barksdale's actions. We've obtained an email exchange between one person who complained about Barksdale to Google and Eric Grosse, an Engineer Director in Google's security group at the company's Mountain View, Calif. headquarters. Grosse quickly responded to the complaint with a curt email: "Thank you very much for reporting; we'll investigate quietly and get back to you if we need anything more."

    Google Engineer Stalked Teens, Spied on Chats (Updated)

    If Google was already aware of Barksdale's privacy violations, Grosse didn't mention it. But while Google seemed initially helpful and friendly when dealing with those who'd notified Google of his conduct, they became increasingly tight-lipped as company officials realized the seriousness of the problem. Later, when asked if Google had taken steps to deal with Barksdale, Grosse would only say, "I am personally satisfied that we've taken decisive steps to limit any additional risk." When emailed again several weeks later about whether Barksdale was still employed by Google, or if the company had determined the extent of his privacy violations, Grosse refused to get into any specifics: "Google has taken the appropriate actions, I can't say more." Right around the same time, Barksdale was quietly fired by the company.

    It's no surprise that Google execs were skittish about discussing the case in detail. Site Reliability Engineers (or SREs) have access to the company's most sensitive data. Responsible for a variety of tasks including responding to technical difficulties across Google's ever-expanding portfolio of products, SREs are given unfettered access to users' accounts for the services they oversee, according to a former SRE who left the company in 2007. "If you're an SRE, for instance, on Gmail, you will have access to mailboxes because you may have to look into the databases," the former Google SRE—who did not work with Barksdale—explained to us by phone. "You'll need access to the storage mechanisms," he explained, pointing out that in order to determine the cause of a technical issue with Gmail, an SRE might have to access emails stored on Google's servers to see if data is corrupted. Barksdale's intrustion into Gmail and Gtalk accounts may have escaped notice, since SREs are responsible for troubleshooting issues on a constant basis, which means they access Google's servers remotely many times a day, often at odd hours. "I was looking at that stuff [information stored on Google's servers] every hour I was awake," says the former Google employee. And the company does not closely monitor SREs to detect improper access to customers' accounts because SREs are generally considered highly-experienced engineers who can be trusted, the former Google staffer said.

    "There's a whole bunch of trust involved. There's a lot of data inside Google, and I'm willing to bet some of it is really valuable. But for me and the people I worked with, it was never worth looking at." It's unclear how many accounts Barksdale inappropriately accessed while employed by Google, or if the company has conducted a thorough investigation into possible privacy abuses by other employees. (Calls to Google for comment were not returned.) It's also not clear what measures are in place to prevent Google staffers from snooping on users. The Barksdale case comes as Google has attempted to address concerns about privacy by encrypting Gmail to protect messages from hackers, and by simplifying its privacy policies to make them more comprehensible to users. Ironically, just last week Google launched its Family Safety Center, dedicated to helping parents keep their children safe on the Internet. But as this disturbing incident suggests, the biggest threat to kids' privacy might be Google employees themselves.

    Update:

    Google has released a statement confirming it fired Barksdale for privacy violations:

    "We dismissed David Barksdale for breaking Google's strict internal privacy policies. We carefully control the number of employees who have access to our systems, and we regularly upgrade our security controls–for example, we are significantly increasing the amount of time we spend auditing our logs to ensure those controls are effective. That said, a limited number of people will always need to access these systems if we are to operate them properly–which is why we take any breach so seriously."

    Google Admits Handing over European User Data to US Intelligence Agencies

    Google has admitted complying with requests from US intelligence agencies for data stored in its European data centers, most likely in violation of European Union data protection laws. Gordon Frazer, Microsoft UK's managing director, made news headlines some weeks ago when he admitted that Microsoft can be compelled to share data with the US government regardless of where it is hosted in the world. At the center of this problem is the USA PATRIOT ACT, which states that companies incorporated in the United States must hand over data administered by their foreign subsidiaries if requested.

    Not only that, but they can be forced to keep quiet about it in order to avoid exposing active investigations and alert those targeted by the probes. This situation poses a serious problem for companies like Microsoft, Google or Amazon, which offer cloud services around the world, because their subsidiaries must also respect local laws. For example, European Union legislation requires companies to protect the personal information of EU citizens and this is clearly not something that Microsoft, Google, Amazon, or any of their EU customers can do.

    This is not only a theoretical problem. According to German-language magazine WirtschaftsWoche [Google translate], a Google spokesperson confirmed that the company has complied with requests from US intelligence agencies for data stored in its European data centers. The situation is likely to spark an official inquiry from the European Commission, with some members of the European Parliament already reacting to the stories. It's hard to foresee what kind of solution can be found at this point, but one thing's clear - US-based cloud providers operating in EU can be forced to break the law. European companies and government agencies that are using their services are also in a tough position.

  • GOOGLE IS NOW A GLOBAL THREAT TO THE INTERNET
    From a good idea that initially started to transform the ease with which searches could be made on the internet to a global censor, corporate pal of the rich press barons , dodgy data gatherer directing users away from the 'TRUTH' and a Zionist sympathiser. The days when GOOGLE did any good are long past their sell by date.

    When you see the power Google wields it is reminiscent of the power the Murdoch empire so heavily abused and to what degree is the data Google has been collecting on us all, at some point in the future if not already, being misused and abused? How much of the collated info of Google is getting to the Israeli zionists and their Mossad spying thugs who already control the global media and now are trying to take over the internet? Google has been trying to justify massive changes to their search algorithms but in effect they are selectively directing users away from the REAL TRUTH of what they and their many global conglomerate friends are all about.

    Ask any alternative site just how few search hits from Google pass their way since their changes? Using Google to search for the BEST source of information is like trying to find an honest cop , an almost impossible task.

    We, like many alternative news sites, have been a target of Google . Previously searches would have taken you to news in a balanced way until Google at the behest of the powers that be dramatically changed their algorithms to ensure alternative news sites either came very low or did NOT appear at all on their search criteria.

    We had a temporary blip when Google instigated this malicious code change to create a search system that only provided the complicit media with priority. We can safely say that this has only had a temporary effect as Google will NEVER dominate the internet to the point were they can aid and abet the suppressing of the disclosure and exposure of the plans of the ruling elite. Google are acting exactly the same as the corporate giants that have been enslaving the world thanks to the hold they have had over news output. Google cannot win this war for the rights of internet users to have news reported far more accurately and truthfully from sources that do not have a corporate masonic agenda.

    So this is a message to the Google scumbags who think tinkering with users searches will create an internet were they control a Zionist agenda. Now they have been exposed for what they are doing internet users are changing their methods for accessing information that hopefully will see the demise of search engine giants that would dare to control the information highway away from the truth spilling out from alternative sites across the globe.

    IN ITS INFANCY GOOGLE WAS A GREAT ADVANTAGE FOR INTERNET USERS BUT AS IT HAS BECOME MORE POWERFUL IT HAS TURNED INTO A MAJOR HINDRANCE IN FINDING THE TRUTH AND MUST BE STOPPED BY USERS REFUSING TO ACCEPT MANIPULATION OF SEARCH CRITERIA.

    Google denies Panda hit on rival

    Google has defended recent changes to its search system that reduced the prominence of some popular websites. One of the worst hit by the "Panda" update was Ciao.co.uk, a Microsoft-owned company that had been leading an EU competition case against Google. Its web visibility fell by 94% according to analysis by Searchmetrics. Google's head of search evaluation, Scott Huffman, said it was "almost absurd" to suggest that the results were rigged. The company regularly changes the algorithms that determine what users see when they search.

    Rankings

    Such updates are often done to weed out "content farms" - websites that copy material from other sites in order to get hits. Where a keyword search may previously have returned their site on Google's first page, afterwards it may be relegated to further down the rankings. When the update, known as Panda, was rolled out globally on 11 April, Google published a blog post explaining that it was designed to "reduce rankings for low-quality sites".

    Shopping and price comparison sites such as Ciao.co.uk sometimes suffer when Google algorithms change because they carry comments and reviews replicated elsewhere on the internet. However, experts said that it was unusual to see a legitimate website hit as badly as Ciao. "A 94% drop is astronomical," said Sanjay Shelat, a search engine optimisation (SEO) specialist at Edit Optimisation. "It is very unusual to take such a hit in an update. That is enough to put a company under."

    Competition case

    Ciao.co.uk was involved in initiating an EU investigation into Google in November 2010. Parent company, Microsoft, claims that Google has used its dominant position to limit rivals' products. The BBC asked Microsoft if it thought the downgrading of Ciao results was related to the legal action, but Microsoft said it would not be commenting on the situation "at this time".

    When questioned by news agency AFP, Google's Scott Huffman said: "If you think of the scale of what we are talking about, it is almost absurd to say we could rig results." Mr Huffman pointed out that the update had received a very positive response from Google users.

    Search visibility

    Searchmetrics analysed Google results in response to a range of keywords, both before and after the Panda update. Alongside Ciao's 94% reduction in visibility, it found that hubpages.com fell by 85% and eHow.co.uk dropped 53%. A similar analysis by Sistrix found a 81% drop in visibility for Ciao.co.uk, 72% reduction for hubpages.com and an 84% fall for eHow.co.uk.

    While a sharp drop in visibility may constitute a crisis for some websites and their search engine optimisation (SEO) engineers, it does not necessarily spell disaster. Technology news website Electricpig.co.uk was downgraded by 94% by the Panda update, according to Searchmetrics. Site editor James Holland told BBC News: "We haven't seen an immediate impact.

    "Comparing our traffic from Google for that week, we're actually only down 0.5% versus the week before Panda took effect. "That suggests most of the keywords Searchmetrics are measuring us against weren't being clicked anyway, and our best-performing stuff is still doing the business."

    DUE TO THE RECENT MAJOR CHANGES TO 'GOOGLE' ALGORITHMS THAT ARE NOW GREATLY DISTORTING GOOGLE SEARCHES AWAY FROM ALTERNATIVE NEWS OUTLETS WHILE GREATLY FAVOURING THE 'MURDOCHS' OF THE PUBLISHING WORLD, THIS ARTICLE SHOWS THE GROWING POWER OF 'SEARCHES' ON THE INTERNET AND HOW COMPANIES LIKE 'GOOGLE' ARE ACTING MORE LIKE THE VERY CORPORATIONS THEY CLAIM NOT TO BEHAVE LIKE. NOW DOING A SEARCH ON GOOGLE IS MORE LIKELY TO PROVIDE A RESULT THAT PUTS YOU RIGHT BACK WHERE THE PRESS BARONS CONTROLLED THE INFORMATION HIGHWAY.

    The new 'electronic monks' will not be guardians of the scarce information; but they will be guiding users to the relevant information. The old monks may have been defending the information storehouse; the new electronic monks will provide the compass to guide users through the ocean of information. But in each case, it is the monk who stands at the gateway to the information that will lead to knowledge and understanding. (Melody, 2003, p. 11)

    The thesis begins from a general interest in the role of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in creating what some have called the Information Society, a new type of social and economic organization akin to the agricultural or industrial society, but based upon wide availability of information and a new dominance of the role of information in everyday life (Webster, 2002).

    The internet, it has been argued, has a key role to play in this transformation. According to one prominent theorist writing about the Information Age, Manuel Castells:

    “The internet is the fabric of our lives. If information technology is the present-day equivalent of electricity in the industrial era, in our age the internet could be likened both to the electrical grid and the electric engine because of its ability to distribute the power of information throughout the entire realm of human activity” (Castells, 2001, p. 1)

    Nevertheless, despite the increasing importance of information in understanding modern society, critical scholars Herman and McChesney make the claim that the public interest in the internet is being left behind, giving citizens “no rights in cyberspace beyond those it [They] can exercise as capitalists or consumers” (Herman & McChesney, 1997, p. 133). It seems to me that the very centrality of the internet to the information society demands scholarly inquiry into how the network is being used outside its commercial context. Therefore, this research focuses on an area of the internet where the public interest may be being undermined by commercial activities; an area which has no direct analogue in the non-internet world and yet is recognisable as a media market: the internet search engine. Search engines, also sometimes called portals, are particularly interesting because of their centrality as both starting points and guides in the emerging content structure of the World Wide Web. As the quote from William Melody that introduces this section indicates, those who stand at the gateway to information exercise a particular power over that information even when their power derives from an ability to guide the search engine user.

    This thesis is not a study of internet infrastructure in the traditional sense of fibre-optic cables or computer hardware. Rather, it is a study of some of the structuring principles of online content. To take a television analogy, it focuses neither on particular shows nor on audience reception, but rather on practices akin to scheduling. To take a newspaper analogy, it focuses not on the text of particular stories but rather on layout and distribution.

    royal google LEFT: GOOGLE'S ROYAL CONNECTIONS

    Alternative news sites have suffered a major blow after GOOGLE manipulated its search engine algorithms to reduce the chance of alternative sites being found on their results. Instead the mainstream media that has been controlled for far to long get priority on GOOGLE searches and undermining the free flow of information across the internet.

    Google is acting just like the corporate multi-nationals that used to dominate information and reducing alternative sites to second class citizens. The stats to alternative sites have rapidly reduced after GOOGLE set this biased search system in motion. We have been getting all sorts of disturbing news about corporate GOOGLE including a recent exposure that GOOGLE have been collecting childrens social security numbers under the guise of an art competition.

    GOOGLE UK OFFICE Google has become far to big for its boots and acting just like the corporate media it claims NOT to be biased in favour of. By manipulating google searches to give massive advantage to the press barons and Murdoch's of this world it is becoming another arm of the BIG BROTHER network that can no longer be trusted to provide accurate search criteria greatly affecting how people get information.

    We recommend Yahoo search as an alternative to GOOGLE's repressive search engine criteria.

    GOOGLE also owns Youtube and there have been disturbing exposures about Google's bully boy threats used to remove video's and video channels under the guise of copyright but usually only when those video's do not agree with GOOGLE's HIDDEN zionist agenda. We have personally received similar threats for the most ridiculous excuses and threats to remove large amounts of video that sits on Googles Youtube servers.

    As can be seen from the above map how close do you need to be to the queen than just down the road from Buckingham Palace? There is a none to cosy a relationship building up between this search engine and the biggest despot on the planet . Any criticism of that regime can easily be buried using the manipulation of search results that Google have already proven they will use to bury anything that is critical of the world's ruling elite starting with the British royal mafia.

  • WEBSITES TO GOOGLE: 'YOU'RE KILLING OUR BUSINESS!'
    google spy Google made one of the biggest changes ever to its search results this week, which immediately had a noticeable effect on many Web properties that rely on the world's biggest search engine to drive traffic to their sites.

    The major tweak aims to move better quality content to the top of Google's search rankings. The changes will affect 12% Google's results, the company said in a blog post late Thursday. "Our goal is simple: to give users the most relevant answers to their queries as quickly as possible," said Gabriel Stricker, Google spokesman. "This requires constant tuning of our algorithms, as new content -- both good and bad -- comes online all the time. Recently we've heard from our users that they want to see fewer low quality sites in our results." Typically, Google's algorithm changes are so subtle that few people notice them. But these most recent changes could be seen immediately.

    How to test the change: The IP address 64.233.179.104 displays Google search results as they would have appeared before the recent algorithm change, according to several webmasters posting to the WebmasterWorld.com forum. Google would not confirm that IP address uses the older algorithm, but comparing searches of trending topics on google.com with searches using the special Google IP address reveals how the search engine now seems to be favoring certain content. The changes appear to be affecting so-called "content farms" the most, which are websites that amass content based on the most-searched terms of the day. Demand Media, AOL, Mahalo and the Huffington Post have all been accused of such tactics, including a notable "story" from HuffPo about the Super Bowl that Slate.com media critic Jack Shafer called "the greatest example of SEO whoring of all time." Tests using trending topics show Google's tweaks in action.

    The current top Google result for a search of Charlie Sheen rant target "Haim Levine" is a New York Daily News page, followed by a story from gossipcop.com. The old algorithm would have featured two Huffington Post stories at the top, with the New York Daily News story not appearing appear until the second results page.
