Is this blog being censored?

Though the average posts per month has not changed drastically, around February of this year, views to this blog dropped massively, and continue to do so at an alarming rate.

To our readers, if you are on Facebook (where we used to get the vast majority of our views), have you noticed this blog being labeled “fake news”, or have there been any noticeable changes when trying to post from here?

I did a search, and found that most of the news about Facebook’s new censorship program is dated around the same time that this site’s views dropped.

February, 2017

To be very honest, I have wondered when this blog would be hit like so many others. Any site or YouTube channel that challenges the status quo (Big Pharma, for instance) is being censored now like never before.

“Fake news” is a term better suited for CNN, but it is targeted at information that hurts big industry and has nothing to do with facts.

Curiously, this drop in views occurred just after this blog post where I called attention to the incredible amount of views this blog site receiv(ed). I remember thinking I should not call attention to it. Maybe I should have listened to my gut.

Here’s another view of this phenomenon, statistics for a single post. Does this drop in views look organic to you?

  1. The sheeple are blissfully marching into Orwell’s 1984, and old George must be rolling in his grave. I hope we wake up before we reach the precipice at least…I’d feel slightly more proud of humanity, but it doesn’t look likely at this point. Apathy will be our undoing…

    • And what i failed to mention, is that each month since that sharp decline in Feb, the views have been cut in half! Each month! We used to get between 1,000-2,000 views a day, and it’s been that way for years without fail. In just these past few months, i would say views are at most 1/10th of what they should be. I did some more searching, and it appears Google is not recommending us anymore. But i’m no techie, so i’m not really sure what is going on. I know, though, that i expected this.

    • I have a lot of YouTube channels that i follow, i don’t watch regular TV at all anymore. And i’ve been watching them deal with this censorship over the past 6 months. Channels that really challenge the status quo can simply vanish overnight. It’s happening with regularity. Same with Twitter accounts. And of course, Facebook is pretty much built for spying and has been busted performing mind control experiments on people.

  2. You failed to link your Facebook page in the article and do not have a link to it on your site. What is your Facebook profile, and, use SEO techniques to show up more on searches as well as Facebook.
    That said, I concur with the above comments. I’d like to join your Facebook Page/Group and see if I get notifications of news posts.

  3. Dear Admin, I cut and paste from here to AlterNet from time to time. I’ll do it a little more often now in hopes of restoring your readership. Keep up the good work!
