“SANDBOXED”/ BLACKLISTED BY GOOGLE

How does Atlas grow? Google search is one critically important way. People find Atlas when they do a word search in google ie "Obama birth certificate", "Obama odinga", "honor killings", "Obama campaign finance fraud"  – stories that I broke or did groundbreaking work on and Atlas is usually in the top five of the search results. That’s how folks find my work and generally I keep 15-20% of them as return readers. Regular Atlas readers know the media refuses to cover these stories – building readership is the only way to boost awareness in this increasingly dangerous world.

A couple of days ago I was wiped off google search pages. Yes, if you google Pamela Geller or Atlas Shrugs, I come up, that is not the issue. My work is not there, it does not come up in google’s search results. It is critical to building Atlas that I be searchable.Youtube searches are still intact as are images.

Further my google search box (left sidebar) which I use almost constantly to search my site for reasearch (as do my readers) has been dramtically affaected. Input any term, any word in my search box and the same thing comes up – FORBIDDEN.

I have had to hire a separate security/consulting firm to get me back online. It is costly.  I need your help. Anything you could contribute to help offset the cost – it’s a lot of hours would be greatly appreciated.

You can paypal my email address writeatlas@aol.com – go here to paypal.

Or write me offline if you wish to send a check.

UPDATE: And my google ads, which used to throw off a few bucks a day, generate nothing now. Nada. Zilch. Zero.

I juat want to be Atlas again in the googlesphere
I earned it.

Owen Thomas, editor of the Silicon Valley gossip blog Valleywag, has
penned a reasoned argument as to how Google is winning political
influence in the wake of this month’s presidential election. In the
column he wrote, he takes a sharp-tongued look at how CEO Eric Schmidt
appears to be trying to win and use influence in the new Washington.

Schmidt is savvy enough to realize that YouTube’s growing prominence as
a media outlet could help the company become a larger political player
— which is why the site sponsored two campaign debates. Traffic? Come
on. YouTube hardly needs the help.

Thomas concludes:

In that light, isn’t there something that stinks about handing the
president’s weekly addresses to a single commercial outlet controlled
by a political ally of the president? Obama’s YouTube chats amount to a
large, unspoken, behind-the-scenes government kickback. Every election
has something dirty about it. And there’s no question Google won this
contest.

UPDATE: Google CEO Could Be Obama’s Tech Advisor

Rumor has it that Google CEO Eric Schmidt will be
occupying the newly-formed tech advisor position to the president of
the United States. Barack Obama created this position just shortly
before visiting the Google headquarters during his campaign, and some
believe that the reason this happened was because the job was promised
to Schmidt.

The
head of Google endorsed the Democratic candidate throughout the
elections, though the ads the company posted on various sites were
mostly Republican. However, Google employees donated far more to
Obama’s campaign than they did for John McCain – about $487,355, and
$20,600 respectively, as estimated by the Wall Street Journal.

Me thinks it was the birth certificate story …. I broke it. I have the forensics.

Policies and Principles: Google and censorship

It is Google’s policy not to censor search results. However, in response to local laws, regulations, or policies, we may do so. When we remove search results for these reasons, we display a notice on our search results pages. Please note: For some older removals (before March 2005), we may not show a notice at this time.

UPDATE: From reader Mairi:

After checking the online support site, I found out there is NO WAY to access information on WHY a site has been deemed "Forbidden" or HOW to get the problem corrected.

     I phoned google again. The young "no named" woman stated that NO PERSON handles the problem, and NO ONE would take my call. When I told her I had been to the support site, and there was NO WAY to get info or support there, she stated that was my ONLY option.

     The rest of the conversation was something like this:
Me: Someone had to have made a conscious decision to label the info on the Atlas site "Forbidden"
She: I don’t know who that person would be, I cannot release any "name" information, and if there is no support online, than there is no support, we don’t do "tech" support, and there is no one I can transfer you to who does "tech" support.
Me: Someone made the decision to label the site info "Forbidden", who do I contact to straighten this out?

She: I cannot give you any other information. I don’t have any one to transfer you to.
Me: So if a site has been labeled "Forbidden", then that decision has been handed down, and there is nothing else that can be done?
She: I would guess so.
Me: google STINKS!
