Google and the Flat Earth
When searching with Google and using the words ‘flat earth’ (and some other word), it’s important to be as high in the search engine as possible. As you know, people who are looking for flat earth information often find themselves looking at websites that debunk it – even if they are on Page 1 of Google.
Christian Flat Earth Ministry was on Page 1 under certain keyword searches, now it’s on Page 2. I would like it to be on Page 1 again and I’m sure you would, too. I think I know how CFEM got to Page 2.
When Google or any other search engine uses algorithms, they are looking for content that relates to the word(s) that is put in the search box. They also look for frequency. This is only natural if a company wants their search engine to be accurate and relevant. With my posting, as you know, I have articles that are not related to the flat earth. With an accumulation of such articles, the search engine tries to determine how relevant the whole website is to the search words ‘flat earth.’ If a website has only one article on the flat earth and the rest is about how to grow a garden, Google will put that site on page 56,193, for example. In other words, it will be at the bottom. You can be sure that no one will do a search and go through that many pages to find out about your article.
With that in mind, I have to make a change. I know I just wrote an article about putting some other hot topic of news on this site and it has brought more new people to this site, BUT I think I have to keep those articles to a minimum, otherwise we will drop further in the search engine results.
This ranking, as they call it, is really a balancing act: too many non-related articles will get you further down in the searches, while keeping the website static, will not draw the attention of search engines. You see, search engines – whether it be Google, Yahoo or Bing – looks for activity on a website – you do, too. If you have been to a site where nothing has been posted in months, you don’t go back there, do you?
In order to keep us active and in the top search results for certain relative keywords, I would have to:
Keep the non-related flat earth articles to an absolute minimum
Keep posting 3-4 times a week or thereabout
Now, there is just so much you can post on a subject. With CFEM website there are over 650 Posts and many of them are videos that contains a lot of information for one post. So, when just about everything is posted that you can think of, the only thing to do is to post some old articles. I hope you understand this. But this is needed in order to score high in search results.
As you know there are other flat earth sites that look fantastic and the owner has done a great job and put a lot of money into creating flat earth videos – which we all benefit from. But their website has remained static. Thus, they are not high in search results – which is a shame. Anyhow, that is the way it is.
As you know, there are always new people learning about the flat earth for the first time, so these older articles are a benefit to them. Another advantage is, with a ton of information that we read or see in a years time we forget about what we had read a year ago or, at least, forget the details. So, with an old article re-posted, it would be refreshing to read again.
Mixing ‘flat earth’ words in with an article on other topics might be a way when I do post an occasional article.
Learn and Grow
We are all learning and growing and a lot to keep up with. I don’t want to stop at just the flat earth information. After all, when a person learns about the lies that have been told us about our earth, they want to learn about what else we have been lied to. For those who haven’t asked themselves that question, when other conspiracies are presented to them, a light bulb goes off in their head and they want to learn about that, too, (hopefully). In short, I don’t want new readers to go away and think that the rest of the world is fine.
As you know, there are many cover-ups that people should know about and that it is all part of the New World Order that is being force on us. So, how do I present that on a flat earth site? As you know, a whole library of books have already been written on all the evil that is going on in the world. So, I can’t put this all on one website. The only way that I can think of is, to simply provide a link to other people’s website that have covered other topics in detail. That is why I have added a Page titled ‘Links’ to the top of this website months.
So, what do you guys think about all this? I would like to hear from you.
Take care and God bless.
