Google Delists Natural News website

Bam.

No real announcement from Google, just happened. They won't even say why, which is a bit more disconcerting.

But NN, besides being a total crank website, has apparently been really trying hard to bend the legitamite rules of SEO and the like. Google apparently has had enough.

Mike Adams (The Health Ranger) has posted a calm, reasoned response about how this is part of "the final solution" in the globalists' total war against humanity.

I do wonder why it was de-listed. Sites of that size and age are normally more resilient to changes in the google algorithm. A serp drop on keywords across the board is one thing if they were trying to game the SEO system and it was in essence fixed, but delisting is different.

It actually could have been caused by a third party. Spamming low quality, blocked, porn etc related links in mass back to their site could cause negative SEO and who knows, maybe could have caused the delisting. Still somewhat odd overall.

Their mobile site performs some re-directs that violate google's TOS.
