You can feel secure now

The process of getting a free security certificate finally got easy enough that I turned on full time https secure connections. No more man in the middle attacks or NSA snooping! I feel sure the EFF did not leak the private encryption key to the government.

Let me know via email if you have problems and cannot login here.

If you think getting the cert proves anything about the reputation of the web site, the only piece of data I had to give was my gmail address.

    It is always dangerous to make judgements based on google searches when you are logged in, but…

    GoogleBot has been hammering the server non stop for at least 24 hours, apparently re-retrieving 100s of thousands of https pages. Doing that seems to have dramatically improved the search results now that I proved I am credible, or compliant

      Perhaps it was ‘triggered’ by a specific search? A few days ago, I looked at the notable quotable coined by Fred in the header: “Reporting dies in Journalism”

      I searched Google for the source of this profundity, and Google could only find a match at SRG. At that time there were only 5 results. So I clicked, then went back and clicked another SRG link, etc. Maybe it started an indexing cascade?

      i.e. An original quote, attributed to one site, makes the site a credible source.

        Seems to be. Like:

        “Democracy Dies in the Darkness”
        “All the news that’s fit to print”
        “Covers Dixie like the Dew”
        “I’m with Her”

        Just kidding about that last one lol

      A good example of basic SEO technique. Go to Ted’s Surfboard Shop in Waxhaw NC and tell them that if they pay you $500, the SEO firm will make you #1 on a search for Ted’s Surfboard Shop Waxhaw. Take their bitcoin and wait until they realize people don’t search for what they already know.

      Rush Limbaugh Streaming is a realistic test. Adding in radio guide just tests if the indexing never happened or you were blacklisted.

      Many search engines are blocked by me as they generate little or no traffic but consume as much resources as GoogleBot – however following my rules in robots.txt is not a legal requirement.

      Before you try to snoop at robots.txt, be aware that by announcing you are a robot, you disable your ability to see much of the web content.
