(NaturalNews) The official beta launch announcement is here! The world's first privacy-protecting search engine that bans corporate propaganda and government disinformation is now ready for webmasters to submit their sites for indexing. The name of the new search engine? Good Gopher! (www.GoodGopher.com)
GoodGopher is the first and only search engine in the world that intentionally favors New Media / Independent Media / Alternative Media websites like Breitbart.com, The Intercept (Glenn Greenwald), Tom Woods (www.TomWoods.com) and TruthStreamMedia (www.TruthStreamMedia.com). GoodGopher will also selectively spider selected international news sites that have a reputation for fearless reporting on world events, such as RT (Russia Today), Der Spiegel and Al Jazeera.
Fake news sources like MSNBC are banned from the engine, as are all other websites pushing corporate propaganda or government disinfo. Sorry, National Geographic. Peddle your Monsanto mockingbird propaganda somewhere else...
In essence, all the websites which have been blackballed by Google News for reporting the truth are favored and highlighted on GoodGopher.com.
New Media webmasters are invited to submit their sites now to GoodGopher.com. Site crawling and indexing begins immediately.
GoodGopher will be available as a public search engine after a few weeks of crawling. Watch GoodGopher.com or NaturalNews.com for an announcement of search availability.
Like all search engines, GoodGopher is funded by advertisements which appear alongside search results. But unlike other search engines, GoodGopher bans unethical corporate advertising.
In an era where 70% of the advertising revenue for mainstream media comes from drug companies -- yes, Big Pharma "owns" mainstream media -- GoodGopher bans all pharmaceutical ads. We refuse to take money from corporations that are poisoning our children with psychiatric drugs while using children as human guinea pigs in unethical medical experiments.
We also ban ads from the Clinton Foundation and other criminal enterprises attempting to occupy the highest levels of American government. (Obviously, GoodGopher also bans all advertising from Monsanto, DuPont, ExxonMobil, Goldman Sachs and basically any organization that has funneled substantial funds to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation.)
Essentially, if a potential advertiser is engaged in evil acts against humanity or the planet, we refuse their business. This stance opens up advertising opportunities for small, ethical businesses offering legitimate solutions that help humanity (such as preparedness foods manufacturers, cancer prevention book authors, home gardening solutions and so on).
GoodGopher favors independent journalists, scientists and bloggers, encouraging "knowledge diversity" rather than the conformist obedience demanded by Google (which now ranks web pages based on conformity to "facts" which are decided upon by corrupt institutions that routinely lie to the public).
GoodGopher will never achieve the index size of Google, instead focusing on source quality rather than quantity. "Quality" sources, according to GoodGopher, are websites created by independent small organizations and individuals who can think for themselves and haven't surrendered to the thought conformity of the corporate controlled mainstream media. Accordingly, you'll find a wide spectrum of independent content sites in the GoodGopher index, delivering expansive diversity of thoughts, opinions and evidence on every subject worth writing about.
Ultimately, mainstream search engines like Google will be the obvious choice for anyone who wants to search all the mainstream propaganda websites for disinformation and lies: the CDC, WhiteHouse.gov, fraudulent medical journals, the New York Times articles on delusional liberal economics and so on. But for people who are searching for far more honest and truthful information, GoodGopher.com becomes the obvious choice where you'll find independent sources on topics like GMOs, central banks, crypto currency, heavy metals in vaccines, fraudulent science and so on.
For this reason, we expect GoodGopher to be subjected to heavy attacks waged by the cyber warfare operations of western governments. This is why we are warning in advance that you should not expect anywhere near 100% uptime availability for the search results, especially immediately after false flag events when information suppression is very aggressive (to make sure the "official narrative" dominates the socially-shared memes in order to achieve contrived "consensus" among the gullible masses).
Here's the great news on all this: Independent and alternative websites now have the very real capability of being in the top search results on GoodGopher for many of the search terms that matter to them most. Because all the disinfo and propaganda websites are banned, this opens up the top search results that are usually gamed into place by Google's "fact engine" which, ironically, penalizes sites that report the real truth. (Interestingly, Google itself has become a very reliable algorithm for identifying disinformation by observing which websites it ranks the highest on search results such as "diabetes.")
Even if you have a small, independent website with few incoming links, you can still achieve top rankings on GoodGopher by simply producing quality content. You no longer have to achieve high domain authority or high numbers of inbound links. The fact that we specifically ban disinfo websites means the competition for high rankings is now a whole lot easier to handle.
Also, the more frequently you post content, the better your rankings will be in GoodGopher. Here's a little more detail on how GoodGopher ranks search results with a "freshness" factor:
GoodGopher's search relevancy algorithm is temporally front-weighted. In other words, it favors more recent web pages over older web pages.
To help deliver real-time breaking news content in response to searches, sites which are identified as news sources are crawled every few hours to gather breaking news pages and make them immediately available to the search results.
This means you'll be able to use GoodGopher as a research tool for finding the latest breaking news on real-time events as they occur. The next time there's a mass shooting event being exploited to push unconstitutional gun control, for example, check GoodGopher.com for the real story you won't see reported on CNN. (Unless you just happen to enjoy CNN's green screen mockery of news, featuring Anderson "CIA" Cooper reading a fabricated, fictional narrative from a teleprompter...)
To maintain search results quality, GoodGopher search results can be LIKED or FLAGGED by users. Websites with high numbers of LIKED search results receive a boost in search results relevancy, making GoodGopher a search engine weighted in part by crowdsourced votes in the positive direction. Search results which are FLAGGED are not penalized -- because that would invite troll click brigades to punish sites they don't like. Instead, sites which are FLAGGED by a multitude of users are set aside for human review to determine whether the entire site should be banned from the index due to violations of propaganda and disinformation.
Yes, we use humans to maintain the index quality, because algorithms alone can always be gamed by well-funded corporate trolls and "negative P.R." companies. GoodGopher is the one system they will not be able to control.
In terms of ranking algorithms, the actual logic we use must remain a black box in order to prevent it from being exploited by dishonest sites. But generally speaking, GoodGopher is "site agnostic," meaning its ranking algorithm is universally applied across all sites included in the index. There is no favoritism, in other words, for NaturalNews.com or other sites I've personally launched over the years. Key to the acceptance of GoodGopher across the independent media is trust and integrity. I would never compromise that trust by trying to game the system for my own content. (That would be utterly stupid and very easily exposed.)
GoodGopher's search results, by the way, are also not always identical across all those conducting searches. Because site indexes are updated and synchronized across the various servers on different schedules, two people searching for the exact same phrase at the exact same time may get two different sets of results (because they were connecting with different search servers).
We also will engage in the "tuning" of search accuracy to continually improve results over time. As our index grows larger, the relevancy of search results will steadily improve. However, because we don't track your location, GoodGopher will never be very useful as a geographic search engine or a place to find the best local taco stand.
Finally, GoodGopher will never knowingly provide any information to the NSA or other spook agencies that spy on the People. That said, the NSA surely has all sorts of techniques to intercept and record unencrypted search queries that are sent to GoodGopher via http, so we obviously can't guarantee the NSA isn't spying on you before our own servers receive your search request. (Most likely, your own ISP is spying on you, too, which is precisely why Google wants to give away "free bandwidth" globally. It's a spy tool, not a free lunch...)
For this reason, we strongly encourage users to protect their privacy using additional means when searching for anything that might be "sensitive" information, such as how to sell raw cow's milk in California without getting arrested and thrown in jail. (Yes, selling fresh milk in California is indeed a serious crime. Welcome to the Collapsifornia police state...)
The best way to accomplish this is to use a VPN service that serves as an IP proxy for all your internet traffic. If you aren't using a VPN, all your internet surfing behavior is probably already being tracked and logged without your knowledge or consent. (Gotta love that Patriot Act, eh?)
In summary, GoodGopher is a privacy-protecting search engine that deliberately favors New Media / Independent Media / Alternative Media while banning corporate propaganda and government disinfo.
GoodGopher is the "anti-Google" where cognitive conformity is punished and intellectual diversity is celebrated. Given the relentless censorship and blackballing of independent media websites happening right now among Google and other search engines, I fully believe that GoodGopher will become the instant new search standard for the universe of independent and alternative websites.
My commitment to you is that I will personally oversee and operate GoodGopher with the highest ethical standards, without compromise and without selling out to corporate or government interests. GoodGopher is not for sale and won't ever be for sale (not at any price). GoodGopher will serve the People and those who quest for the truth in a world dominated by lies and propaganda.
GoodGopher may or may not ever be a commercial success, but it will be a moral success from the very first day it launches.
One more thing: GoodGopher has no investors, no venture capital and no joint ownership with any other interests. In operating GoodGopher, we answer to no one other than YOU, the good people who are trying to save our civilization from the sellouts, criminals and bureaucrats who are desperately trying to destroy it. My own track record of standing up against the status quo speaks for itself, and that's why a successful "independent media" search engine like this could only succeed if were operated by someone who already has the street cred across the community it serves. If Bill "population reduction" Gates launched this, for example, it would have zero credibility from the start. But because this new search engine has been borne out of the rising independent media itself, it has the credibility to be trusted among this community of high-IQ people who are naturally skeptical and critical of every claim they encounter.
All I claim is that I'm putting in an honest effort to empower the New Media with a search engine that favors their content. I'll need your help to make this a sustaining success that can pay its own bills and grow with user demand, so please share this story and spread the word: GoodGopher is the new search engine for truth on the 'net.
