About Good Gopher
GoodGopher was developed by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, editor of NaturalNews.com. Adams was formerly the CEO of a very successful software company. He's now using his technical expertise to create GoodGopher which will benefit all "alternative" websites publishing TRUTH rather than propaganda.
With your help, we are building the internet's largest search engine for those searching for information and news on liberty, natural healing, central banks, food freedom, advanced science and a multitude of other topics no longer allowed in NSA-controlled search engines.
Good Gopher's Pledge of Integrity
GoodGopher is the world's first privacy-protected search engine that filters our corporate propaganda and government disinformation. It was founded by Mike Adams, the "Health Ranger," editor of NaturalNews.com and a top voice of the Independent Media.
Here at GoodGopher, we are the anti-Google. Here's what we pledge to all our users:
NO SPYING ON YOU. We don't record your search history. We don't track your browsing habits. We don't build a psychological profile of you. When you search on GoodGopher.com, your search is private. Even if GoodGopher.com is hacked, it cannot reveal individual search histories because it does not record them!
NO CORPORATE PROPAGANDA OR GOVERNMENT DISINFO. GoodGopher actively seeks to filter out corporate propaganda and government disinfo. Because our filters aren't perfect, we also enable users to flag search results with a "Bad Gopher!" flag. When enough users flag a link as "Bad Gopher!" we review the URL and parent domain to determine whether it should be banned from our index. "Bad Gopher!" clicks do not affect rankings, so trolls have no reason to arbitrarily click links for sites they don't like.
HONEST RELEVANCY ALGORITHM. Our relevancy algorithm is equally applied across all sites, meaning that even small sites have the same shot as being #1 for any given search term as a large site. No site (not even NaturalNews.com) receives any special boost. All sites in the index are subject to the exact same ranking algorithms. Sites can, of course, be banned from the index for spamming or using black hat techniques to try to game the system.
NO PROMOTION OF PHARMACEUTICALS AND OTHER POISONS. GoodGopher is funded by advertising, but we don't let just anybody advertise on the site. We specifically ban all corporate advertisers who sell pharmaceuticals, pesticides, GMOs, vaccines and other toxic products that destroy human life and contaminate the planet. This isn't even the full list, of course. We also ban gambling and porn sites, and we review each potential advertiser on a case by case basis. Our decision process is guided by principles of human decency, human rights, ecological sustainability and honest business practices. We reserve the right to ban any advertiser at any time.
NO BACK DOORS TO THE NSA. GoodGopher wasn't built by a bunch of NSA spooks. We don't have any back doors to spy agencies or federal agencies. It should be noted, however, that we are still subject to court orders from federal judges, but even if a court ordered us to turn over something, we can't turn over that which we don't possess!
