Dis-Info Filter for Google Searches!Submitted by RobHino on Fri, 03/01/2013 - 23:20
The implications, if true, would be the only option to "hide" information on the internet...that is, to saturate the web with disinfo, false news stories, etc. whose headlines and word content are littered with search terms relevant to the information the dis-info agents are trying to hide. They're basically doing SEO (search engine optimization) for viral stories so those results clog up Google's search results for people investigating the hidden story...in this particular case, a TB breakout.
We need a Dis-Info Search Filter, and it seems like it would be fairly easy to build using Google's basic search operators. In fact, I do this all the time when searching in Google. My favorites are (-) and ("") to subtract exact words or phrases from the results, and I just keep drilling down.
So here's the idea...
Imagine a Firefox, IE, Safari, or Chrome Add-On (or just a simple website) that let us enter the URL of a known or suspected dis-info news article and then also the keywords we're actually looking for. Our Google searches could then exclude search results with similar content to the suspected or known dis-info article.
Who's in?!! Does anyone know what language this could be written in?
