Google’s latest move is to censor online content moving through it’s various channels; search, video which is ‘controversial’.
You can see it in black and white above.
This site, and other onliners such as WSWS have experienced exclusion from the index, or severe penalties. On the other side of the fence, in the world of YouTube, many publishers whose livelihood is based on the forum through and it’s many subscribers, have found content ‘demonetized’.
Even posters whose content has nothing to do with controversy, light entertainment channels may find they’re getting censored if they don’t present their information in the right way.
In many cases Google is simply targetted the individuals. Removing their content wholesale, whether it’s breaching guidelines or not.
Judgement has been cast
Google refused to monetize my YouTube content many years ago. They said I was running a ‘click-scam’, the truth is, Google Adwords only pays publishers for a PERCENTAGE of the click-thru’s they get on their site. Some clicks don’t get registered at all. When you’re making money from BILLIONS of clicks a day, that’s a lot of money.
I know this, having been a publisher since 2003/2004 when Adwords first came out and I started running the program. I ran it for over 7 years…. Anyway, another story…..
List of demonetized YouTube stars
This list is ongoing, so if you want to slip me an email with your story, I can include you.
This is my new location, commonly named ‘Gayton Junction’.
I was here last year, only under the A43 flyover, listening to the cars and trains and painting my boat during the day.
The boat is painted now, and I don’t have to stay under the flyover.
You can see Bonnie on the picture if you look closely…
Today it’s raining, as has been the pattern for the last 2-3 weeks to a month.
As I’m not at work, I decided to take the opportunity to have a look down ‘Blisworth Arm’ which leads to the River Nene and branches off from Gayton Junction toward Northampton.
It’s perhaps half a mile or so before the first set of locks.
Here it is…
As you can see, it’s the tiddly locks like you get on the Shroppie, Staffs & Worcester and all the other little inland canals. These can be easier for a solo boater, as you can run over the roof and your boat doesn’t swing around so wildly in the locks.
I’m used to the double locks now. I’ve been on them for the last 12 months at least.
Since I reached the Kennet and Avon which was 2016.
It’s about 4 miles from Northampton in this spot.
Has a pub, The Walnut Tree.
I used it’s services the other day when I needed to download a game to pass the time in the rain.
