Google's core product has always been its search engine, and its influence is such that it has been termed "the world’s biggest censor".[1]

Origins

NSA-backed. Started by Pd.D. students Larry Page and Sergey Brin.

Government connections

The Register noted in 2016 that "Aside from the fact it is persistently one of the biggest lobbyists in DC, there has also been: the last-minute change made to net neutrality rules solely because of a letter received from Google; the unusual dropping of anti-trust investigations into the search giant; the curious "non prosecution agreement" it reached with the FBI over drug ads; and the fact that a review of logs showed that Google execs meet with White House officials on average once a week..[2]

Revolving door

Watchdog.org reports that "More than 250 people have moved from Google and related firms to the federal government or vice versa since President Barack Obama took office."[3]

2017 Selective Reduction of Referrals

Ben Gomes, Google's vice president for engineering, announced in April 2017 that Google’s search engine would block access to “offensive” sites, while working to surface more “authoritative content.” An article 3 months later by WSWS.org reported a 2/3 decline in referrals over the period, a similar decline to Alternet and major falls in referrals to various other websites, including Global Research, Consortium News, Common Dreams, Wikileaks, Truth-Out, Counterpunch and The Intercept. Wikispooks' referrals from Google also fell over this period.

Protest

A 2017 march to protest Google's decision to reduce traffic to sites critical of the government's official narrative was cancelled after threats of violence.[4]

Aims

"It’s quite obvious [Google] want to be Skynet (of ‘The Terminator’). They have their own military robots, and have stated that they desire to create a profile on every human.”[5]

Search Engine alternatives

Among non-commercially controlled search engines is the seeks-project and its successor searx.

Seeks aims to give the control of the ranking of results to the users.

Seeks is a p2p pattern matching overlay network on top of existing search engines. It provides collaborative filtering regrouping users based on the similarity of their queries and letting them reorganize and evaluate the search results together.

A list of working searx nodes can be found at: http://stats.searx.oe5tpo.com/

To order results to their personal liking users can run a searx instance and specify their own rules. The installation scripts make this easy. This is an effective way to break out of the search bubble.
