Get ready for algorithmic censorship courtessy of Google
Google will be burying sites that have few "facts".

GLP's ranking is going to sink like a boat anchor. Not because people necessarily post false facts here, but because conspiracy theories oppose official facts..

"A Google research team is adapting that model to measure the trustworthiness of a page, rather than its reputation across the web. Instead of counting incoming links, the system – which is not yet live – counts the number of incorrect facts within a page. "A source that has few false facts is considered to be trustworthy," says the team (arxiv.org/abs/1502.03519v1). The score they compute for each page is its Knowledge-Based Trust score."

Re: Get ready for algorithmic censorship courtessy of Google
So I guess we can expect Google searches to return shit like: "All vaccines are good for you", "Global warming is real", "Blacks can't be racist.", "President Obama is god"...etc, etc, etc...

...

And the surface internet just get dumber and dumber...

Sounds like other search engines that are not in socialist pockets are going to have a chance. This could be the first good thing Hussein's Internet takeover brings us.

If true, it sounds like a targeting of non-official media altogether, particularly satire, humor and opinion type websites.

Yes, it makes MUCH more sense now. I've been trying to figure out what that was all about for the past week or two. Any time I post a spaceflight related thread in the last couple weeks I suddenly get deluged with tards claiming spaceflight is fake because the earth is flat. It didn't used to be like that, there's been a definite increase in flat earth tardism on GLP. Now we know why.

The same ones who stopped the ebola news from getting out. Very same ones who want the ISIS videos from getting out.

They want to keep them satisfied with Kartrashian news, and not the real goings on.

They want a handle on it.......and if you don't SEE it, it ain't happening...... or something like that.....

you guys are about 18 yrs too late. google has been fudging search results for a long time. if you actually think google was an organic start up by two cool stanford students then go drink some more aspartame laced, fluoride, corn syrupy go go juice.

google was started via NSF grants/funding and these two boys were selected. it has always been a communist tool.... it was designed that way from the beginning.

oh.. and they've used your tax dollars to do it.

Burying and suppressing info that one does not support is censorship, plain and simple. Too bad this probably won't hurt Google one bit.

First paragraph displays redundancy, perhaps Author or Google is dumb as box of rocks...

Whew, I opened up one of those threads and felt my IQ drop about thirty points. One was enough, by far. Yeah, I know we're all about conspiracies, but there's a fine line between BS and eve the lunatic fringe of GLP.

That would make sense however by flooding a board with BS. It could be something to watch in the future when total BS threads start popping in mass, especially when Google implements the new algorithm.

I do wonder about startpage search though. Don't they use google for their results and your search terms are anonymized by startpage? I wonder what other search engines use google as their backbone?
