Truthaction Shills Discuss Ways of Manipulating Google Rank

gretavo's picture

"Col. Jenny Sparks" has come up with the brilliant idea that everyone should have a 9/11 Truth blog, and that they should link to each other like the no-planers do so as to boost their google rank... do y'all think the TA people EVER do any real world truthing?

Excellent post...

Everyone should have a 9/11 blog.

Even if you post on another site like 911blogger, there are obvious flaws with sites like this:

Content is not highlighted effectively in my opinion. Posts are made, and then mostly are not seen or heard from again. This is a problem if the accessibility to *new* potential activists and 9/11 truthers is valued. Content should be presented effectively.

This is one of my issues with a site like 911blogger:

Quote:
If 911blogger users aren't impressed by an article they frequently don't vote. If an article is well liked, many vote '10'. If users don't like an article they often just vote "1". Articles are also voted "1" for mysterious and unknown reasons.

However, if articles were voted in a Digg system, we could have 'top 911blogger stories' as voted by the users. That would be an effective way to get good 911blogger stories noticed; if people feel strongly about stories, they could get better recognition through this system of voting. As it stands, most articles appear and then pretty much disappear into the back pages of the site never to be seen from again.

If there was a weekly or monthly top 10 or 20 stories--or even of "all time", this would bring more attention to the great and valuable work continuously posted on 911blogger. A section of the site could effectively link to highly voted stories. And there is a lot of work on 911blogger that deserves to be highlighted and promoted.

911blogger is a major and valuable source of 911 stories. Part of an effective media is that good information and stories are effectively highlighted and promoted. Part of highlighting good information could be accomplished by implementing a system of voting where articles that are valued by the users get more attention with an effective ranking system. As it stands, the "average score" voting system can be easily manipulated by "1" votes. A Digg system would allow articles to be highlighted by popularity and amount of positive votes. As it stands, voting on 911blogger stories and blogs are pretty much irrelevant to how content is promoted by the site.

By promoting highly valued stories for more than just a few days on the front page, valuable and important information could be more effectively and visibly promoted.... http://arabesque911.blogspot.com/2007/12/stories-and-voting-on-911blogge...

I guess the problem is that there are too many stories and they can't be highlighted... However, it would be nice to see important stories more prominently featured.

Important stories can be highlighted by blogs. You don't even have to write anything, just quote articles and reference them. This in itself is a contribution to 9/11 awareness.

Blogging can be whatever you want it to be.

1) Opinion
2) Factual Highlights: Quotation of sources
3) 9/11 analysis/commentary
4) Research

Every blog that highlights the best sites like 911research only further increases the visibility of these sites in search rankings. 911research is a great site for writing research pieces. Same with the complete 9/11 timeline.

Choosing a topic that no one has written about is valuable since it contributes to unraveling the 9/11 cover-up. As two examples, I wrote about the 9/11 promotions and the WTC building designers. No one wrote about these topics before (in depth), and now people link to my articles all over the internet.

If there is good content, people will link to it, and it will make your blog visible. It's a chain effect, and by working together by creating many 9/11 blogs, cross linking to each other, it makes a cumulative effect at awareness.

Waiting for the gatekeepers is a waste of time. Bypass them by creating your own 9/11 blog. Every voice for truth is a valuable one.

Then get started with one of these sites:

Google's Blogger

LiveJournal

Myspace--for those with loads of memory/bandwidth(seriously, this site crashed the Windows on the lame machine I was forced to use most of January)

WordPress

Another problem with Myspace is that it doesn't give you the option of having a blogroll (a list of links to sites you recommend). The other blog sites do give you that option, depending on what layout/template you use.

I think it's important to have a blogroll, so that we cah help increase each other's Internet visibility by linking to each other. Only thus can we make ourselves more visible than the no-planes bloggers and such.

Having done some research on this, it is actually very impressive how these TV fakery blogs are all cross linked to each other. For some interesting reason, they tend to avoid linking to any and all credible 9/11 websites.

Jim Fetzer's ST911 site had this very problem--it highlighted the least credible and ignored the best ones (i.e. 911research). Highlighting the best content gets more visibility for these sites.

I propose a 9/11 blogroll joint initiative. Post your blog address here and then everyone can link to it. If you don't have one, create one and leave your address here and it could be added to the blogrolls.

However, on my links I prefer to stick to credible sites, and avoid hoax promoting sites.

If you support 9/11 truth, I can't think of a single good reason why why you shouldn't have your own blog. The content can be whatever you want it to be. As I said, you don't even have to write anything, you can just highlight news stories posted elsewhere or excerpts.

Well, they're trying to boost their own faction, obviously, and avoiding linking to those who criticize them.

Good idea. Here's mine:

A blog devoted to highlighting (via links and quotes) news stories and blog posts elsewhere is fine, but the blog author really should say at least a little something about the highlighted stories. It's not necessary to say much, but a blog which consists of nothing but links and copy-and-pastes, with no original content whatsoever, is likely to be perceived as a spam blog, and may be deleted from the blog host for that reason.

Also, everyone: Please make sure you properly attribute all your sources, with links if possible. Let's all avoid plagiarism, please.

Also, keep in mind copyright law. Don't post copies of entire articles. Post brief quotes only and then a link to the entire article, unless you have permission to copy the entire article (in which case you should explicitly say, "used by permission"). If you appear to be violating copyright law, your blog may be deleted from the host for that reason.

Also, if you happen to be critiquing a site you'd rather not give a vote to in terms of Google rankings, use the following in your HTML tags when you link to it:

Code:
rel="nofollow"

For example:

Code:
really crazy page

I haven't done it yet.

Maybe soon. Friends have encouraged me.

I'd avoid MySpace like the plague - that's a Murdoch owned data-mining operation data which will probably be sold to Mil-Intel. For this:

I'd like to let you know about another blog environs...
