Google Post II: What's Important to Jew?

| Categories Google, Jew Watch, Wikipedia | | 1 Comment

Interesting. We are discussing Google policies and then I get an email from my Aunt to sign a petition to get Jew Watch removed from the top of Google's organic search results. That Jew Watch comes up first is true. You can google it now and see. The petition is also real and reports over 300,000 people have "signed" it. But, truly, there is no way Google is going to alter their organic search results. As we are learning, Google is hyper-governing (if inconsistent) with their paid advertising and completely laissez faire with their organic search. And, at least the laissez faire part, makes sense. The organic search is like the public's "vote" for important and relevant information for the keyword. Unfortunately some quack has created a monolithic site and apparently lots of other quacks link to it. Jew Watch is important and relevant to quacks searching for quackery on Jews.

How about you, Jew? Got a website? LINK TO what is important to you about Jews NOW:

I choose Wikipedia's article on Jews.

Google has a page devoted to this topic:

A quote:
“The beliefs and preferences of those who work at Google, as well as the opinions of the general public, do not determine or impact our search results. Individual citizens and public interest groups do periodically urge us to remove particular links or otherwise adjust search results. Although Google reserves the right to address such requests individually, Google views the comprehensiveness of our search results as an extremely important priority. Accordingly, we do not remove a page from our search results simply because its content is unpopular or because we receive complaints concerning it. We will, however, remove pages from our results if we believe the page (or its site) violates our Webmaster Guidelines, if we believe we are required to do so by law, or at the request of the webmaster who is responsible for the page.”

So Google is very unlikely to remove the search result. But the URL they posted this on suggests many people complained about it.
