While surfing GAB this morning I came across an article from The Gateway Pundit (GP), a large political website that’s well known. It seems that when GP interviewed a Google whistleblower, Google retaliated by cutting off the site’s ad revenue. It’s no secret that mega-sites like The Gateway Pundit rely on AdSense and other ads to support the site operating expenses. Google’s retaliation hit GP right where it hurt the most, In the bank account. Also when operating a website that supports conservative, republicans, and Trump supporters, big tech search engine gatekeepers like Google and Bing bury the content of the site in their indexes. It’s required to purchase ads to get the word out, among other methods of content distribution. Google whacked GP’s nuts off! 😥
The Gateway Pundit Reports: On Friday we learned that Google demonetized The Gateway Pundit from their ad network. The Gateway Pundit is one of the top 200 websites in America today. GP has an outstanding record of accurately reporting the top news stories of the day. Because of our continued success and our honest conservative bent we are regularly censored, shadowbanned, and banned by the tech giants. Despite this, our numbers continue to grow year after year.
Google is the self-proclaimed GOD of the Internet. They have become so large that they censor websites and spy on anyone that owns an Android smartphone. Just yesterday while researching an article being blogged, I came across a Fox News video just published to Fox’s channel required signing in for required age verification. The Fox News video titled, McCarthey: Biden chose the Taliban over Americans was age-restricted: The following content has been identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences. Viewer discretion is advised. The fact is JOE BIDEN was LYING about HIS Afghanistan Crisis and blaming it on Donald Trump. McCarthy exposed his lies, and Google/YouTube ran damage control for the worst President ever!
FidoSysop does not run ads because this is a hobby website that tries to get the word out about the right side of political opinion. Personally, I think ads look like crap, Let alone the site running the ads has to have a ton of traffic to generate revenue. An advertiser might spend say a dollar per click, out of that the site owner might get a few pennies. Then at the month’s end, Google scrutinizes the clicks, and if any anomalies exist the advertiser gets screwed out of the revenue earned.
