#UPDATE: January 6, 2021:
To all of you who are sending me video clips this morning and asking "Is this your family?"...


To answer your questions...


* Yes... my relatives ARE on every news station in every country of the world today, yes they did ORGANIZE the attack on the Capitol Building... and I am horrified by it.


* No, before you guys sent me the video footage clips, I was unaware the attack had happened, I do not own a TV and do not seek out news reports on the internet, so had you not sent me those clips I would never have known the attack had happened at all


* Yes, many members of my extended-family were involved in organizing the attack on Washington D.C.; one of my aunts claims to be the organizer, she is now wanted by the FBI for questioning


* Yes, I can see 1 uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 1st cousins in those pictures and news reports.


* Yes, the shooter is the high priest cousin you saw posting gun photos and death threats on my FaceBook, Twitter, and Twitch chat


* Yes, that is the 2 cousins who founded the group "The Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan More Loyal Than The Loyal White Knights", in the gif/memes trashing reporter cameras and jumping on said cameras 


* YES, that IS the uncle who was paying the Discord tittie streamer $500 a month to stage the "deserve to be raped raids" on my Twitch channel 


* Yes, that uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 cousins ARE all members of Heaven's Gate and were party to the original UFO cult kool-aid murder suicide that killed 39 people in 1997


* No, I do not support anything they do or have done; it's been more than 30 years since I last saw, talked to, or interacted with any of them


#And please, stop forwarding video footage and news reports to me. I want nothing to do with those jackasses. We share DNA, not ideologies. They absolutely disgust me.


* If you were there, please be aware that 4 of them are now bragging on their social medias that they currently have Covid-19 and that they were spitting on police and government officials during the attack on the Capitol Building; yes it is confirmed they DO actually have Covid-19... 9 members of their immediate family have died in the past month and is what instigated them to join the mob at D.C.


* Yes, all of them are wanted by the FBI... if you have any information about ANY of their crimes INCLUDING today's attack on Washington D.C., do NOT send it to me, send it to the FBI agent in charge of the case: 


#FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the investigation. If you have information about the case, give it to him not me. He can be reached @ +1-(207)-774-9322


This whole thing is very distressing for me. I do not like the kind of attention that gets put on ME because I happen to be related to THEM.

Far too many people harass my family, online and offline, because of these dipshits in our rather distant family tree.

I prefer to stay out of the public eye and deeply dislike being pulled into the paparazzi spotlight every time this group of lunatics pulls one of these ridiculous terrorist attack stunts.


It was very distressing for me to wake up this morning to find email, and every contact method on every social media, packs full of thousands of questions, links, and forwards, all asking me if that was my family that was being plastered across every news station on the planet.


It was bad enough to learn a terrorist attack had happened and it was even worse to learn it was yet again my uncles behind it.


Though I can not say I'm surprised to learn these jackass dipshits I have to share DNA with were involved. This certainly isn't the first terrorist attack they took part in.


Considering this 1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins, all who took part in Heaven's Gate murder of 39 people in 1997, 1 of whom built the bomb for 2013's Boston Marathon, and 2 of whom founded the Loyalist White Knights... were involved in this attack too... I hope they get life in prison, they fucking deserve it.

.......

#UPDATE: January 9, 2020....


Good news, one of them was just arrested in Florida. He's the guy all over Twitter today, waving to security cameras while stealing Nancy Pelosi's lecture pedestal. My relatives are insane. I hope he never gets out.


At least he can't post death threats and rape threats in my Twitch chat anymore. I hope they arrest them all.


Why do I have to share DNA with these psychotic lunatics?


You can support your political party without being a violent, crazed, psychopathic terroist, you know.


#And random thought...


You know... all the people saying Trump supporters should stop inciting violence and go read their Bible, clearly have never read the Bible and have no clue how much violence and genocide God commands in the Old Testament... shouldn't it be the Trumpies need LESS Bible influence? Isn't it the Bible that inspired them to be violent in the first place?


And you want to know something else...


26 of those people now arrested for attacking the Capitol, had ALREADY been reported, in October 2019, for planning an attack on the government...

I know beause I filed that report on 3 uncles, 2 auns, and 23 cousins when they started building bombs and bought 4,000 asult rifles, while claiming they were building an army.

This attack was a long time in the planning and couldhave been prevented and the FBI knew about it 2 years ago.


But hey... guess what... the FBI knew about the Heaven's Gate murder 8 MONTHS before those same 26 people murdered 39 people under the shadow of Hale-Bop... AND the FBI knew in 2012, 5 months ahead of time that these same 26 people were building bombs for the Boston Marathon.


Same 26 people over and over again. This time some of them actually got caught... but the Heaven's Gate crew, has 4,000 members in Maine, Florida, Mississippi, Wyomin, Colorado, and Nova Scotia.


They are gaining members all the time. They claim they are building God's army, they claim Trump is "the God-King" God's form on earth, they also believe he is a shapeshifting reptilian alien, and they claim to be waiting for a mothership that will fly in the shadow of Comet Wormwood.


They claim "when the Trump of jubilie sounds" they will be ready to kill all who oppose them, because they believe they are God's Army and they do not fear death, for they also believe that through death, they "will be changed in the twinkling of an eye" and transformed into mighty arch angels to enact vengange of all who oppose them.


They embrace death, to the point, like they did in 1997, they will kill themselves if they have to, and take everyone around them with them.


Heaven's Gate should be feared and they should be in prison, not building gallows on the front law of the Capitaol building while trying to hang the Vice President.


How many decades will Heaven's Gate's members be allowed to kill and main unbridled? They are terrorists and NEED to be arrested and put in prison, BEFORE they do what they are planning and unleash a bomb that will kill every one "East of the Mississippi" as they put it.


My uncle David is dangerous, and now with his brother Bruce, leader of Heaven's Gate since 1997, dead from Covid19, David's crew has become far more dangerous than they ever were.


This attack they staged on the Capitol, it's not the end, it was just them firing a warning shot of something far bigger yet to come.


They need to be stopped BEFORE they kill more people.


How many times will this same group be allowed to kill over and over again, before someone stops them?


.......


1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins were there; they are the leaders of Heaven's Gate AND the Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan; they have 4,000 members armed with assault rifles, ready to march on command, and that's JUST the group in Palmyra, Maine - they NEED to be stopped... this post they made on Twitter is NOT a joke... they WILL march Jan 19... they MUST be stopped... Jan 6 was just a warning shot

UPDATE: January 14, 2021
I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...

I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...


................


*if someone asks me to do something in exchange for a donation...? I stream, and today someone I've never seen before sent me a message on discord asking me if I want [insert ridiculous amount of money here]. I of course replied asking what for, and the guy replies saying 'complete 25 challenges, for example #1 would be pulling a funny face. If you complete all 25 challenges then I donate the money.' Oh, and he also sent me screenshots of what I assume is supposed to be proof that he's dono'd tons of money to others before. This seems sus AF to me. Should I just assume it's fake / he'll ask me to do something weird? What do?*


................


You've heard of the recent attacks on the American Capitol, right?

Have you NOT also heard about the 26 Twitch streamers who have found their name's on the FBI's no fly list even though they live in Europe and have never been to America?

Have you looked at today's day January 14 vs the date of the next 2 planned attacks, January 17 and January 20?

I doubt you'd ask this question if you HAD heard of what happened, so let me me summarize:

A group of terrorists spent several months planning an attack on Washington D.C. They took to intermingling with election rallies, so no one would suspect them. 

Meanwhile, online, they sought out a way to make 26 fake IDs for their group to use on attack day (January 6).

They ended up contacting 26 Twitch streamers the genders and approximate ages of the 26 people they had in their group going to D.C. 

Each streamer was sent an offer for being donated $500 in exchange for doing things. The streamers thought it seemed innocent enough and was easy money, so did it.

The reason for the $500 amount, was PayPal requires additional verification on large amounts, meaning, they were given the REAL NAMES AND HOME ADDRESSES of those 26 streamers. They next took those names and made 26 fake IDs using the names and addresses of those 26 streamers.

They used those fake IDs January 6 at D.C. and now as of Jan 7, those 26 streamers found their names on the FBI's no-fly list.

Those 26 terrorists, tossed the fake IDs and used their real IDs to leave D.C. and made their way back to Florida, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, successfully returning home, while hundreds of other rally attendants found themselves unable to get on planes.

Given what those 26 did just before Jan 6, I would question anyone asking something similar to any streamer, right now, this close to Jan 17.

I highly recommend you report them to the FBI as possibly connected to the Jan 17 attack. **[https://tips.fbi.gov/](https://tips.fbi.gov/)**

The 26 people in question by the way... my uncle David, his wife Luci, his sister Barbie Jean, and 23 of their children, grandchildren, and great grand children... only one of whom so far has been arrested... the one who stole Nancy Pelosi's pulpit. On their way home to Palmyra, the rest showed up in my driveway January 11, to chant "All hail God King Trump" while bragging how they didn't get caught and outwitted the FBI and are going back to D.C. on Jan 17 and Jan 20.

Chances are VERY HIGH that the man contacting you was David's son Shem, who is the one who contacted the others prior to the Jan 6 attack, or so he bragged on Jan 11, while shooting off his rifils in my driveway, from a red 1980s vintage Jeep Cherokee.

Beware of the Atwaters, the Halls, the Cyrs, and the Johnsons... they ain't sending you money unless they are planning on using you to take the fall for some crime they plan to commit and blame on you. You'll go to jail and they'll walk free, like they always do, like they've been doing since the 1950s.

..UPDATE: January 14, 2021...
..............................
...MODS TAKE NOTICE!...
.................................
...NEW BAN RULES ADDED TO THE CHANNEL... ..............................
...From today forward ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight...
..............................
...I do not want any member of the 4Chan, 7Chan, Anon, QAnon or any similar terrorist organizations near my channel...
.............................. 
...BAN THEM ALL!...

#As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATELY BAN** anyone and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.

I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.

#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.

#I do not want any member of this terrorist organization near my channel.

#The Chans are horrible people and I want nothing to do with any of them.

#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.

The "Chan" movement... OMG! They are fucking psychotic extremists. I had no clue what "Chan" meant or why people put it at the end of their username. Knowing what I know now and looking at the fact that the ringleader behind the 3 year long attack on my Twitch channel has the word "Chan" at the end of her username, the wild sex rumors she spreads about me FINALLY make sense.

Today one of my mods sent me the following message:

*"I noticed the girl trying to cancel you has "Chan" at the end of her username, as do many of her followers. I also noticed your confusion over her attacks and I wonder, do you know what "chan" means or why streamers put it at the end of their username? Everyone who has "Chan" at the end of their username is a witch hunting channel, it is how they identify themselves. It means they are extremist radical trolls from 4chan. There is even a wiki devoted to the "Chan Movement". Here, you'll want to read this. **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan)** and this **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology)**Twitter has started to ban anyone using "chan" at the end of their username because is identifies the user as connected with white supremacy hate groups. She's a QAnon terrorist and proud of it, that's why she has "chan" at the end of her name. That's why she is working with your uncles. She helped them plan the attack on the Capitol. She's a QAnon member. That's why she has the word "chan" at the end of her username. Every QAnon member does that. I didn't realize you had never heard of QAnon or 4Chan until I saw your Tweet last night. I'm s sorry. I thought you knew that is what she was. I would have messaged you sooner about this if I had known you didn't know what QAnon was. Also "Thingy" is a slang word, it means "a child's vagina" people put that in their username to signify they are supporters of child rape. These are really bad people attacking your channel. They are the same people who just attacked America's Capital. When they are chanting "ThingyChan" in your chat, it's a QAnon secret code word, it's another word for rape, it's a rape threat, it's them bypassing the NightBot ban of the word rape. It means they are threatening to gather up 4Chan members to rape you. 4Chan QAnon's use secret code words to bypass chat bans because they know most people don't know what the code words mean. It's like a Morse Code that only they know."*


Here is what the Wiki has to say:

>>>>*"4chan is an anonymous English-language imageboard website. Launched by Christopher "moot" Poole in October 2003, the site hosts boards dedicated to a wide variety of topics, from anime and manga to video games, music, literature, fitness, politics, and sports, among others. Registration is not available and users typically post anonymously; posting is ephemeral, as threads receiving recent replies are "bumped" to the top of their respective board and old threads are deleted as new ones are created. As of November 2020, 4chan receives more than 20 million unique monthly visitors, with more than 900,000 posts made daily."*

.

.

>>>>*"The site has been described as a hub of Internet subculture, with its community being influential in the formation of prominent Internet memes, such as lolcats, Rickrolling, and rage comics, as well as hacktivist and political movements, such as Anonymous and the alt-right. 4chan has often been the subject of media attention as a source of controversies, including the coordination of pranks and harassment against websites and Internet users, and the posting of illegal and offensive content. The Guardian once summarized the 4chan community as "lunatic, juvenile ... brilliant, ridiculous and alarming""*

.

.

>>>>*"Before the end of 2003, several new anime-related boards were added, including /h/ (Hentai), /c/ (Anime/Cute), /d/ (Hentai/Alternative), /w/ (Wallpapers/Anime), /y/ (Yaoi), and /a/ (Anime). Additionally, a lolicon board was created at /l/ (Lolikon),[26] but was disabled following the posting of genuine child pornography and ultimately deleted in October 2004, after threats of legal action."*

.

.

>>>>*"On November 17, 2018, it was announced that the site would be split into two, with the work-safe boards moved to a new domain, 4channel.org, while the NSFW boards would remain on the 4chan.org domain. In a series of posts on the topic, Nishimura explained that the split was due to 4chan being blacklisted by most advertising companies, and that the new 4channel domain would allow for the site to receive advertisements by mainstream ad providers."*

.

.

>>>>*"/pol/ ("Politically Incorrect") is 4chan's political discussion board. A stickied thread on its front page states that the board's intended purpose is "discussion of news, world events, political issues, and other related topics." /pol/ was created in October 2011 as a rebranding of 4chan's news board, /new/, which was deleted that January for a high volume of racist discussion."*

.

.

>>>>*"Although there had previously been a strong left-libertarian contingent to 4chan activists, there was a gradual rightward turn on 4chan's politics board in the early-mid 2010s. The board quickly attracted posters with a political persuasion that later would be described with a new term, the alt-right. Media sources have characterized /pol/ as predominantly racist and sexist, with many of its posts taking an explicitly neo-Nazi bent. The Southern Poverty Law Center regards /pol/'s rhetorical style as widely emulated by white supremacist websites such as The Daily Stormer; the Stormer's editor, Andrew Anglin, concurred. /pol/ was where screenshots of Trayvon Martin's hacked social media accounts were initially posted. The board's users have started antifeminist, homophobic, transphobic, and anti-Arab Twitter campaigns."*

.

.

>>>>*"The users of /r9k/ built upon by then popular 4chan memes "epic win" and "fail" to group the human population into "alphas" or stereotypical well-adjusted popular people and "betas" or stereotypical geek-ish social rejects, self-identifying with the latter. It became a popular gathering place for the controversial online incel community. The "beta uprising" or "beta rebellion" meme, the idea of taking revenge against women, jocks and others perceived as the cause of incels' problems, was popularized on the sub-section. It gained more traction on the forum following the Umpqua Community College shooting, where it is believed that the shooter, Chris Harper-Mercer, also warned people not to go to school in the Northwest hours prior to the shooting as users encouraged him. The perpetrator of the Toronto van attack referenced 4chan and an incel rebellion in a Facebook post he made prior to the attack while praising self-identified incel Elliot Rodger, the killer behind the 2014 Isla Vista killings. He claims to have talked with both Harper-Mercer and Rodger on Reddit and 4chan and believes that he was part of a "beta uprising", also posting a message on 4chan about his intention the day before his attack."*

.

.

>>>>*"Anonymous originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain. Anonymous members (known as Anons or QAnons) can be distinguished in public by the wearing of Guy Fawkes masks in the style portrayed in the graphic novel and film V for Vendetta. However, this may not always be the case as some of the collective prefer to instead cover their face without using the well-known mask as a disguise. Some anons also opt to mask their voices through voice changers or text-to-speech programs."*

.

.

>>>>*"On January 19, 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice shut down the file-sharing site Megaupload on allegations of copyright infringement. Anons responded with a wave of DDoS attacks on U.S. government and copyright organizations, shutting down the sites for the RIAA, MPAA, Broadcast Music, Inc., and the FBI."*

.

.

>>>>*"In the wake of the fatal police shooting of unarmed African-American Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, "Operation Ferguson"—a hacktivist organization that claimed to be associated with Anonymous—organized cyberprotests against police, setting up a website and a Twitter account to do so. The group promised that if any protesters were harassed or harmed, they would attack the city's servers and computers, taking them offline. City officials said that e-mail systems were targeted and phones died, while the Internet crashed at the City Hall."*

.

.

>>>>*"In March 2016, Anonymous was reported to have declared war on Donald Trump. However, the "Anonymous Official" YouTube channel released a video denouncing #OpTrump as an operation that "goes against everything Anonymous stands for" in reference to censorship and added "we are for everyone letting their voices be heard, even, if the person at hand ... is a monster.""*

.

.

>>>>*"In late 2017, QAnon, a pro-Trump group claiming to be the "real" Anonymous, first emerged on 4chan. In response, anti-Trump members of Anonymous warned that QAnon was stealing the collective's branding."*

.

.

>>>>*"Since 2009, dozens of people have been arrested for involvement in Anonymous cyberattacks, in countries including the U.S., UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, and Turkey. Anons generally protest these prosecutions and describe these individuals as martyrs to the movement. The July 2011 arrest of LulzSec member Topiary became a particular rallying point, leading to a widespread "Free Topiary" movement."*

.

.

>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal. QAnon also commonly asserts that Trump is planning a day of reckoning known as the "Storm", when thousands of members of the cabal will be arrested. The conspiracy claim is entirely fictitious. QAnon supporters have accused many liberal Hollywood actors, Democratic politicians, and high-ranking government officials of being members of the cabal. They have also claimed that Trump feigned conspiracy with Russians to enlist Robert Mueller to join him in exposing the sex trafficking ring and preventing a coup d'état by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros. The QAnon conspiracy theories have been amplified by Russian state-backed troll accounts on social media, as well as Russian state-backed traditional media."*

.

.

>>>>*"Although preceded by similar viral conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate,[23][24] which has since become part of QAnon, the conspiracy theory began with an October 2017 post on the anonymous imageboard 4chan by "Q", who was presumably an American individual;[25] it is now more likely that "Q" has become a group of people acting under the same name. A stylometric analysis of Q posts claims to have uncovered that at least two people wrote as "Q" in different periods. Q claimed to be a high-level government official with Q clearance, who has access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its opponents in the United States. NBC News reported that three people took the original Q post and spread it across multiple media platforms to build an Internet following for profit. QAnon was preceded by several similar anonymous 4chan posters, such as FBIAnon, HLIAnon (High-Level Insider), CIAAnon, and WH Insider Anon. Although American in origin, there is now a considerable QAnon movement outside of the United States, particularly in Europe."*

.

.

>>>>*"QAnon adherents began appearing at Trump reelection campaign rallies in August 2018. Bill Mitchell, a broadcaster who has promoted QAnon, attended a White House "social media summit" in July 2019. QAnon believers commonly tag their social media posts with the hashtag #WWG1WGA, signifying the motto "Where We Go One, We Go All". At an August 2019 rally, a man warming up the crowd used the QAnon motto, later denying that it was a QAnon reference. This occurred hours after the FBI published a report calling QAnon a potential source of domestic terrorism—the first time the agency had so rated a fringe conspiracy theory. According to analysis by Media Matters for America, as of October 2020, Trump had amplified QAnon messaging at least 265 times by retweeting or mentioning 152 Twitter accounts affiliated with QAnon, sometimes multiple times a day. QAnon followers came to refer to Trump as "Q+""*

.

.

>>>>*"The number of QAnon adherents is unclear as of October 2020, but the group maintains a large online following. In June 2020, Q exhorted followers to take a "digital soldiers oath", and many did, using the Twitter hashtag #TakeTheOath.[42] In July 2020, Twitter banned thousands of QAnon-affiliated accounts and changed its algorithms to reduce the conspiracy theory's spread.[43] A Facebook internal analysis reported in August found millions of followers across thousands of groups and pages; Facebook acted later that month to remove and restrict QAnon activity,[44][45] and in October it said it would ban the conspiracy theory from its platform altogether. Followers had also migrated to dedicated message boards such as EndChan and 8chan (now rebranded as "8kun"), where they organized to wage information warfare in an attempt to influence the 2020 United States presidential election.[47] Following Trump's loss to Joe Biden in the election, QAnon beliefs became a part of attempts to overturn the results and Trump's loss, culminating in the storming of the United States Capitol, leading to a further crackdown on QAnon-affiliated content on social media."*

.

.


>>>>*"Anonymous is a decentralized international activist/hacktivist collective/movement that is widely known for its various cyber attacks against several governments, government institutions and government agencies, corporations, and the Church of Scientology."*

.

.

>>>>*"Project Chanology (also called Operation Chanology) was a protest movement against the practices of the Church of Scientology by members of Anonymous, a leaderless Internet-based group. The project was started in response to the Church of Scientology's attempts to remove material from a highly publicized interview with Scientologist Tom Cruise from the Internet in January 2008."*

.

.

>>>>*"The project was publicly launched in the form of a video posted to YouTube, "Message to Scientology", on January 21, 2008. The video states that Anonymous views Scientology's actions as Internet censorship, and asserts the group's intent to "expel the church from the Internet". This was followed by distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), and soon after, black faxes, prank calls, and other measures intended to disrupt the Church of Scientology's operations. In February 2008, the focus of the protest shifted to legal methods, including nonviolent protests and an attempt to get the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Church of Scientology's tax-exempt status in the United States."*

.

.

>>>>*"Reactions from the Church of Scientology regarding the protesters' actions have varied. Initially, one spokesperson stated that members of the group "have got some wrong information" about Scientology. Another referred to the group as a group of "computer geeks". Later, the Church of Scientology started referring to Anonymous as "cyberterrorists" perpetrating "religious hate crimes" against the church."*

.

.

>>>>*"Members of Project Chanology say their main goal is "to enlighten the Church of Scientology (CoS) by any means necessary.""*

.

.

>>>>*"Project Chanology began its campaign by organizing and delivering a series of denial-of-service attacks against Scientology websites and flooding Scientology centers with prank calls and black faxes. The group was successful in taking down local and global Scientology websites intermittently from January 18, 2008 until at least January 25, 2008."*

.

>>>>*"Protesters in Boston, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Edinburgh, London, and other cities worldwide, wore Guy Fawkes masks modeled after the 2005 film V for Vendetta. Guy Fawkes was an English Catholic executed for a 1605 attempt to destroy the House of Lords. In V for Vendetta, a rebel against a near-future fascist regime uses the mask in his public appearances and distributes many of its copies to the population to enable mass protests."*

The attacks caused Turner's website to go offline. This cost thousands of dollars of bandwidth bills according to Turner. In response, Turner sued 4chan, 7chan, and other websites; however, he lost his plea for an injunction and failed to receive letters from the court."*

.

>>>>*"KTTV Fox 11 aired a report on Anonymous, calling them a group of "hackers on steroids", "domestic terrorists", and collectively an "Internet hate machine" on July 26, 2007.[137] Slashdot founder Rob Malda posted a comment made by another Slashdot user, Miang, stating that the story focused mainly on users of "4chan, 7chan and 420chan". Miang claimed that the report "seems to confuse /b/ raids and motivational poster templates with a genuine threat to the American public", arguing that the "unrelated" footage of a van exploding shown in the report was to "equate anonymous posting with domestic terror"."*

A later post said: "Check the news for Port Orchard, Washington, in a few hours. Her son will be home from school soon. He'll find her, then call the cops. I just wanted to share the pics before they find me." The victim was Amber Lynn Coplin, aged 30. The suspect, 33-year-old David Michael Kalac, surrendered to police in Oregon later the same day; he was charged with second-degree murder involving domestic violence. Kalac was convicted in April 2017 and was sentenced to 82 years in prison the following month."*

The suspect took pictures of the victim's bloodied deceased body and posted it to Discord and his own Instagram page. The photos were widely shared on Instagram and other sites, particularly on 4chan where many users mocked and celebrated her death, saying she deserved it and praising the killer while depicting Devins as a manipulative young woman. Devins had developed a small following online and was a 4chan user herself."*

QAnon was preceded by several similar anonymous 4chan posters, such as FBIAnon, HLIAnon (High-Level Insider), CIAAnon, and WH Insider Anon.[31] Although American in origin, there is now a considerable QAnon movement outside of the United States, particularly in Europe."*

Those are just a few highlights of what the Wiki has to say about the Chan Movement and why so many users on Twitch and Twitter tac the word "chan" to the end of their username.


If you want to read the full aticle to find out all the horrors of this horrendouse group of terrorists, here is the link:


* **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan)**

* **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology)**

* **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QAnon](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QAnon)**


As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATLY BAN** any one and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.


I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.


#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.


#I do not want any member of this terrorist orgination near my channel.


#The Chans are horrible people and I want nothing to do with any of them.


#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.


On a side note... do you remember in June 2016 when a group of crazy protestors showed up in my driveway chanting that my family was "Satan worshiping pedophile cannibals of the Scottish Mafia"? Well, it says on that Wiki:


>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal."*

.

.


Does that me those people in my driveway that day were QAnon members?


Scary... that group included 2 Mormon Bishops, the Old Orchard Beach Town Manager, several motel owners from Old Orchard Beach, an excavation owner in Old Orchard Beach, and 2 Old Orchard Beach Town councillors... uhm... does that mean Old Orchard Beach is infested with QAnon members?


I think I am finally starting to understand the weird accusations that get tossed at me and my family... like being called "Scottish Mafia" when we are not, and being called a "BDSM Dominatrix" when I am not, and being called a "Satan Worshiper" when I am not, or being called "pedophiles' or "cannibals" when we are not.


I never understood these accusations or what the possible source could have been, but I had never heard of QAnon until 2 days ago when Twitter announced they banned 70,000 QAnon members off Twitter, following the terrorist attack in Washington D.C. earlier this week. 


The Tweet my mod was referencing, was a Tweet where I asked "What is QAnon? I never heard of it before."


Okay, so now understand WHERE they got the accusations from, they apparently say those things about everyone. But the question still stands: Why me? Why my family? Why my Twitch channel? How did I become a target for members of such bizarre, psychotically deraged terroist group? 


Also... it says QAnon started in October 2017... but those people who were in my yard, the first time they showed up was April 10, 2015, and they arrived again May 14, 2015, June 12, 2015, September 12, 2015, and each time they showed up the group was bigger. They continued to show up throughout 2016.


Each group was lead by a masked man who always kept his face hidden. The group members called him "Mark" and "Mark Who Needs No Last Name"... he was a tiny elderly man about 5'9" very skinny, and had unkept white hair. He always arrived driving a backhoe, which is the same backhoe that drove over my house August 8, 2013. He was the one seen shooting at me and my family in several livestreams. He was prone to showing up while I was livestreaming... I think he used my livestream schedual to determine if I was home, and I also think he was trying to "get his 15 minutes of fame" because he was always trying to get himself and his rifales on my webcams.


All of it was recorded via those livestreams *(yes, this is why several Witcher 3 VODs are not available for you to watch... it's the ones with the terrorist attacks on my family in them.)*, and all the video footage forwarded to local police, who in turn forwarded it to the FBI, and the FBI assigned Agent Andy Drewer to the case June 26, 2016.


All of that was a full 2 years before the October 2017 date in that article.



As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATLY BAN** any one and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.


I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.

#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.

#I do not want any member of this terrorist organization near my channel.

#The Chans are horrible people and I want nothing to do with any of them.

#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.


#UPDATED to answer this question:

......................

*How is it you have never heard of 4chan or QAnon? I thought you were a dark webber? Everyone always talks about how you know all the darkest deepest sites on the internet. 4chan is like the biggest dark web website ever.*

......................

Uhm... WHO exactly says I know dark web websites and what exactly is a dark webber?

I've been on the internet since 1996, but I build websites, I don't visit websites. In my 25 years on the internet I've probably visited fewer than 100 websites total, if that many. In fact, I can list off the top of my head websites I visit and use:

* Amazon

* Blogger/BlogSpot (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* Deviantart (as a blog writer, I don't read/view content by others)

* eBay

* FaceBook

* FanFiction.Net (not visited since 2011)

* LinkedIn (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* LiveJournal (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* MySpace

* Nexus

* Pinterest


* SoapBox

* Squidoo (ceased to exist 2013)

* Twitch

* Twitter

* WordPress (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* YouTube

* Zazzle

Wow... not only didn't reach 100, I didn't even reach 20.

I find it rather laughable that you or ANY ONE would think of me as someone who knows "dark web" web sites.

When exactly do you think I have time to browse the internet to even look for any website at all?

I work 80 to 120 hour weeks. 

I publish 4 novels a year, dozens of short stories a month, 2 to 3 non-fiction articles every day, paint on canvas with acrylic art for **[new merch products](https://www.zazzle.com/store/eelkat)** weekly, write for 12 blogs, and a manage/edit/write for 200 websites **[like this one](https://www.eelkat.com/)** which I built from the ground up and am the ONLY person managing/editing/writing for... AND I'm a retail merchandiser for HallMark travelling hundreds of miles a week to set up displays at WalMarts, CVS, Post Offices, WalGreens, and Khols all over New England. On top of all of that I make YouTube videos AND stream on Twitch.

So, explain to me WHEN you think it is that I have any free time for browsing the internet? 

I don't know who told you I was a "dark webber" or that I would know anything about "dark web" web sites, but, honey... check their username... did it say "Chan" at the end of their name? Yeah... THEY are a "dark webber" who visits "dark web" websites, not me, as can be clearly seen by them putting "Chan" at the end of their username.

You might want to reconsider where you get your information about me, who you get your information about me from, and fact check the source of the information you get about me.



If you could recommend I watch one VOD that best represented your channel, which would it be?

This one....

March 8, 2017, Google Unleashed FRED


Today's question about web building, content sites, and affiliate marketing comes from The Warrior's Forum. Quote below are from three different people.

[QUOTE=seofreetips;11041041]I have seen many guys at here and in some other Facebook group that they have lost about 50 to 70% traffic due to Fred update at 8th march.

But when I checked my analytics dashboards I have not find any LOST in traffic for any of my website 

Even I found 20% improvement for some of my website.

Just thinking Am I lucky? AND WHAT ABOUT YOU?[/QUOTE]

what exactly was the Fred Update?

everybody forget about RankBrain, I really don't think there really was an update

considering things went real time and AI[/quote]

While my original answer to this question about Google's FRED update appeared on the thread linked above, my answer here on EelKat.com is longer and has more detail then the one posted on the original forum.

Have you ever seen these links on my site? No? Well, you are gonna see a lot of them on this page. And I'm gonna tell you why. Keep reading, there is a reason, and yes, it doe have to do with Google's new FRED update...


Google's FRED Update
What is it and how was EelKat.com effected by it?
My Answer:



Yes.

I did just link to the Warrior's Forum from my web site.

Here, have another link to it.

Links are the topic of discussion here today. Might as well blast you with as many as possible and prove the point I'm trying to make by actually doing instead of just talking about it right?

Can't have poor quality links on my site after all... not after Google's FRED update and it's backlash at sites with a lot of links, right?

Let's see? How many links does it take to get to the center of Google's latest tootsie roll tootsie pop? Let's find out...

90% of the people reading this, just fell back in horror and asked: "Wendy, what the hell are you doing on the Warrior's Forum! That's the biggest, evilest, darkest, dirtiest black hat SEO community on the internet!!!!"

Yep. It is that. One must know one's enemy if one is to outrank them. ;)

That, and I have to keep on top of cutting pirates and copyright infringers off at the knees. You'd be surprised how many "Get rich quick" WSO's of the Warrior's Forum are made 100% out of content scraped off my website. That place is riff with scam artists stealing my articles off EelKat.com and selling them as WSO's for "a one time low price of just $99.99 for my 10 page report on how to self publish on Amazon!" Those 10 pages, that you can find here on my site for 100% FREE, because I don't charge for the advice I give to new writers looking to get started in self publishing.

THAT'S why I'm on the Warrior's Forum... to hunt down people who steal articles off my site. No where on the internet will you find scam artist pirates selling stealing my articles more then you will on the Warrior's Forum. When it comes to the Warrior's Forum, I seem to be one of the most stolen from authors.

Let's add another one, shall we? Why not!

7 out of every 10 "WSO reports" on self-publishing, Kindle authorship, writing Erotica, building content based web sites, and freelance content writing careers are 100% scraped right off my website. Yes. Why bother paying $399 for a 15 page report off the Warrior's Forum, when you can read the ORIGINAL, from the ACTUAL author, right here on my website for FREE?

But, Warrior's Forum is not all evil.

No. In fact. MOST Warriors are actually real live Internet Marketers looking to give and get advice on making money online. The Warrior's Forum is actually one of the #1 best places on the internet to get information on how to build a web site. I've been on the Warrior's Forum since 2007 and the help I've gotten from others there, has far outweighed the scam artists that lurk on the site.

But, that's where I first got wind of FRED. I knew something had happened, and I wasn't sure what, but it looked like a Google update and it looked like a big one, and I knew if it was a Google Update, then surely there would be no better place to find out what it was, then the Warrior's Forum.

Yep. I was right. It was a Google Update.

THOUSANDS of sites are being turned topsy turvy. Massive amounts of sites have had their life lines cut off. Thousands more have been shot straight to the top with no logical reason at all.

Did Google's FRED gave you a boost?


Here's another one.

Have you figured out why Google's FRED, likes THIS type of link, but not OTHER types of links?

(Yes, I am going to tell you. Keep reading.)


Same for me. 

By quite a lot actually.

My site was averaging 3,000 hits a month (pretty standard for the niche, {Sissification CBT Yaoi Unicorn Porn} which is super small and only has an estimated 7,000 die hard followers world wide) and suddenly I've got traffic coming out the wazooo.

Just checked my Google Analytics, so I could give you an exact number for this article... as of right now, 5 seconds ago (March 28, 2017 @ 11:20PM), my traffic this month so far is:

75,962 page views so far!

That's insane.

To go from 3,000 views a month to 75k after one Google update... I've been hit hard by Google updates before: Panda, Penguin, Pigeon, Phantom, Hummingbird, RankBrain... usually I am on the winning side of these too... in fact, the only time I was on the losing side was when I was writing for Squidoo, and my own articles did not get hit by Panda, which is why I was able to flee that sinking ship and come out on top.

The secret to making money online? It's staying up to date on the latest changes with Google and adjusting to meet, match, and exceed Google's expectations. 

Hey, look at that - here's another one!

It's being fluid and able to change gears mid stream. It's knowing when to jump ship. It's knowing when to grab on to the new ship cruising in. A lot of Squidoo writers lost their careers when Panda hit. Only a few of us were able to hang on for the ride and and sail to the top after Panda's typhoon sent shock waves across the internet. It's being flexible like that, changing with every change Google tosses out, that is the real secret to making money online.

I've seen minor ups and downs over each Google update. I've learned to track each update, study what Google wants, and make my content be what Google asked for, but never before have I been rewarded for my diligance in this level.

The side effects FRED has had on my site are insane.

I don't even know what to think about FRED at this point. This genre/topic/niche {Sissification CBT Yaoi Unicorn Porn} just doesn't get traffic like this, it simply doesn't happen. I mean, at 3k a month I was ranking the #1 most trafficked site of the niche, and now it's just gone ZOOM waaaaay over the top of anything reasonably expected for the topic.

I'm just sitting here eating marshmallow bunnies and wondering: is this a fluke or will this trend continue into the rest of the year? I can only wait and see what else FRED has in store for us.


Still showing you these.

Yes, there actually is a reason, and I'm getting to it...


I'm not entirely sure the full details of it yet, as it just happened March 8, 2017 so not a lot of research has been done into it yet. All that is really known is that is seems to have targeted affiliate sites - cutting traffic off almost entirely, from any "content site" that has HEAVY focus on affiliate links, with only minimal "content"

In other words, sites that post a 400 word "article" followed by several product links to Amazon, saw their traffic go from 1,000+ visits a day to ZERO visits at all - NONE - not even one - meaning Google unindexed their urls - blacklisted them, removed them from the search engine entirely.

On the other hand ACTUAL content sites, with articles 2,000+ words long, and only a single affiliate link here or there, suddenly saw 10s of 1,000s of page views overnight. With some sites going from 10 or 12 visits a day to 10,000+ visits a day.

Things have gone crazy right now for anyone with a content focused, topic based, affiliate monetized website (which is what I do, thus why my site was one of the one's effected by FRED).

If Google creates an algorithm change that effects content sites and affiliate marketing, then I want to know about it so I can be right on top of it and keep up to date of what is going on. Any change that effects me, I want to know about.

But what do we know about FRED?

Not much actually.

Google has yet to say anything at all about FRED.


Here's another one of those product links. Like I said, these are all over my site. These are okay. Google' FRED like's these.

Why?

Keep reading and you'll find out...


Near as I can tell, from what I've seen on my own site, what my fellow SBIers are saying is going on with their sites, and what Amazon storefront owners are saying is going on with their sites (I'm on several small forums for these types of sites, so I'm seeing a lot of chatter - good and bad - from pretty much every one with an affiliate monetized, article based, niche-topic content site, right now)... near as I can tell the ONLY sites effects are content sites (which includes blogs, Amazon stores, SBI sites, and similar sites) that are posting daily articles, with heavy keyword focus, and are using affiliates.

From what I'm seeing, it looks like big articles, long articles, 2,000+ word counts are "IN" and being given a heavy boost; while small articles, short articles, articles under 1,000 words are being penalized.

Along side of, sites focused on affiliate marketing with LOTS of "buy this" content, being punished heavily; while sites with only minimal links and more focus on writing long content with a lot of information, are being given a boost.

This is proving what I already knew from Panda's attack on Squidoo and similar sites. Google wants sites that are providing useful and meaningful information for our readers.

Google does not want junky sites loaded down with crap.

Google doesn't like sites that are all about: "GIMMIE! GIMMIE! GIMMIE!"

Google wants sites that are helpful, useful, and have REAL CONTENT of REAL VALUE to offer to READERS, who are looking to READ something useful.

Well, Google has a history of trying to reduce spam and promote quality, so this update is only bad news for those of you out there who are trying to beat the system.

Google is punishing sites that are abusing the system and rewarding sites that are actually trying to help people. And that's exactly as it should be. 

Here's the one you were waiting for...


Why are THESE types of links okay, by Google and other types of links NOT okay?

Because THIS is NOT an affiliate link.

You see these links all over my site. Google likes links like this one. Why? Because this is a product link.

This is ACTUAL CONTENT, content that was CREATED BY ME.

I'm the artist who painted that picture. This is an actual product created by me, as opposed to an affiliate link promoting someone else's products.


Gone are the days when you could manipulate Google into driving you traffic, simply by stuffing enough keywords into your site.

Gone are the days of making fast cash, by plastering ads all over your site and sitting on your ass doing nothing.

Google wants people who put time and effort into creating good content. Content people actually want to read. Content people are actually searching for.

We already knew it, but Google is telling us once again, that content is king.

FRED clearly is targeting affiliate sites and content sites and any site focused on writing articles to promote traffic to product sales.

Basically, what happened was nearly all the losers were very advertisement heavy, especially banner ads, and offered little or poor quality content, which had no value for the reader. While all the winners were putting content over monetization.

It is very obvious that the sites hit hard by this had a lot of advertisement, outdated, thin and scraped content, a lot of spun content, a lot of not original content, and did not care about giving any real information to the viewer, caring only about getting clicks on their affiliate links.

And from the amount of sites effected... it appears to be one of Google's biggest updates ever, rivaling Panda's 2012 update that mass attacked content farms and resulted in places like Associated Content, Squidoo, and Yahoo Voices being shut down.

FRED Says: Content Is King!

What is Google FRED update telling us? What we already knew to begin with:

CONTENT IS KING!

I'm often laughed at and called out by internet marketers, because I put so much time and effort into writing super long articles that focus on content and information.

On the Warrior's Forum, I'm frequently told I am stupid for having a higher rate of text and a lower rate of affiliate links.

And yet, who is it who is weeping and wailing and gnashing their teeth, bemoaning this FRED update? Those very same people who said I was stupid for focusing on writing super long articles full of quality content that provided valuable information to my readers.

Why did my site get a boost from the FRED update?

Now this one is just here to prove a point...

That you CAN fill every last bit of space with links.

Links in and of themselves are not the problem.

TYPE of link is the problem.

Because in 6,000 pages I haven't got one article with fewer then 3,000 words, several are over 10,000 words and my most trafficked pages have 20,000 words per article. At the same time only 1 in every 10 or so pages has an affiliate link on it.

While the Warriors focused on lots of quickly hashed out 400 word posts, stuffed full of keywords and packed to the teeth with affiliate links, I focused instead on content over promotions of products.

Why?

Why did I do that?

 Because I think of my articles as THE PRODUCT itself.

While they are focusing on driving traffic AWAY from their site to go buy affiliate products, I was focusing on driving traffic TO my site, to receive my products (my articles, being the products themselves.)

I'm not creating a bridge to a product, I am creating the actual product.

Why send people to someone else's product when I could be sending them to my own products?

My website is not a mass of ad copy to get you to buy someone else's products, my website is the product that people seek to consume. And THAT is why Google like's my site.

My site is focused largely on sharing information. I'm not pushing products or focusing on squeeze pages or trying to get people to buy anything. And THAT is what Google wants. Information for people with questions, seeking answers.

I have survived FRED.

And now you know why.

I have survived yet another web site slaughtering Google Bot.

Did you?

How has FRED effected you?

Ever wondered why I choose SBI to host my web site?
Well, wonder no more...

Did you know it was a serial killer, murdering one of my friends and her husband, that led me to discovering SBI?

Did you know that I am enrolled in a course that provides weekly updates on every signle Google update and that, that is how I stay up to date on what Google is doing and how I'm able to come out on top after every single Bot Google tosses out at us web masters?






Did you also know that  I hand write thousands of pages of code, to create only a few pages of website? And that I do it for every page of my site?






And did you know that more then $5,000 went into building and hosting this web site?






And in case you are wondering, what an affilate link looks like, what was it that FRED was targeting?

Here, have an affiliate link:




^^^THAT^^^ is an affiliate link.

That is what affiliate links look like. That link will take you to a page where you can find out how to buy and SBI website building/hosting package like the one I used to build this site you are reading now. Clicking that link, yes, results in me being paid a commission if you buy one of SBI's web building/hosting packages. 

THAT sort of link, is the type of link Google's FRED is targeting. That is a banner affiliate, which displays a banner for you to click. Google's FRED, targeted banner affiliates harder then it targeted any one else.

Take a look around my site to see how I use banner affiliates APPROPRIATELY, if you want to learn to repair any damage FRED did to your own site.


In other words, sites with links to affiliate products are a dime a dozen and do not offer anything new. They do nothing but send people to the same tired old products over and over again.

And now here's the kicker....

Contrary to what nay-sayers are saying, Google is NOT punishing content sites because of product links... Google's FRED is punishing sites because of the TYPE of links.

Google is REWARDING sites that DO NOT abuse the system...  Google is REWARDING content creators who create unique original content not available elsewhere.

This is an example of a unique product link:

That is art created by me. My own painting. Only available from my Zazzle art gallery.

Sites with UNIQUE user created product links are not being punished.

Naysayers are saying that Google is targeting sites linking to products for sale.

No... not what I've seen. I've spent the day looking at the sites saying they've been black listed and comparing them to the sites saying they got a boost. I'm seeing a trend that speaks out loud and clear: UNIQUE CONTENT is being pushed to the top, while shitty, shoddy, scraped and stolen content with heavy affiliate link promotion is being squashed like a bug.

If you are doing nothing but slapping up 400 words of scraped content and tossing affiliate links all over it, hoping to get rich quick, then Google's FRED is going to smash your site to smithereens.

If you were paying careful, close attention, you will notice not 1, but 4 money making links in that last box.

One is the link to the SBI affiliate banner. Did you find the other 3?

If you said: The videos; you were right.

Yep.  

Here is another example of a unique product link:

That is a book, written by me. You can not find it any where, except on my Amazon page.

YouTube videos are a way to monetize your website, WITHOUT using affiliate links. And, Google actually REWARDS you by boosting your site's rank, if you embed YouTube video on your pages. This is because Google owns YouTube and Google likes to promote sites that promote them.

You have reached the end of this article.

Embedded in this article you have passed, 14 money making links.

1 Google AdSence banner

9 product links to products I created

3 video links to AdSence monetized YouTube videos

and only 1, single, solitary affiliate link, and it's not actually what Google considers an affiliate link.... Why? Because I live in Maine, where Affiliate Marketing is Illegal and anyone who lives in Maine is not allowed to put affiliate links on their website site.

and THAT is why I survived Google's FRED update.

I survived because I have a lot of USER CREATED CONTENT, content that was created by me, myself. Not content created by others and curated on my site, but my actual own products.

USER CREATED PRODUCTS: art and books, in my case, but there are plenty of other products out there that you can create.

There are 14 money making links on this page, art, books and USER CREATED VIDEOS, but only 1 affiliate link.

And notice I emphasis USER CREATED videos. The videos are my own. They are no some one else's. That does make a difference. Sites that are getting a boost in traffic, have another common theme: embeded videos which they created themselves. Their own vlogs. Their own content.

And yes, that does mean, a common theme of sites being punished by FRED is they are curating videos. Sites that do nothing but promot OTHER users' videos, also took a hit from FRED. Google doesn't want an index of videos competing with YouTube. Google owns YouTube. They don't want you making a site and filling it with every video you run across. 

If you are linking to other people's videos, Google is gonna send FRED to bitch slap you.

Yes, 14 money making links is way too many for a short article like this. Don't do that on a normal page. But like I said earlier, thee was a reason I was going overboard with the links on THIS page in particular. To prove a point. And what was that point? That FRED is not punishing ALL links, as many nay-sayers are saying, but rather FRED is punishing a certain type of link: affiliate links.

Yes, there are 14 money making links on this page, but only 1 of them is an affiliate link. I did this to show you, that you don't have to plaster your pages with affiliate banners. You can still make money online without them. Just be a content creator.

Be unique.

Be yourself.

Be you.

That is what Google wants.

New.

Fresh.

Different.

Unique.

Do you see the trend?

Google wants USER CREATED CONTENT: from articles, to products, to videos, Google wants things that YOU created YOURSELF.

Affiliate links are things created by someone else, hosted by you and thousands of others like you, and you and the thousands of others like you are paid to promote it. Meaning it's not UNIQUE content, because there are literally THOUSANDS of sites promoting that same affiliate links over and over again, no matter which affiliate link you are promoting.

Whereas user created stuff is UNIQUE to you and your website and not available elsewhere.

You will not find my articles ANY PLACE else. They are unique too my website.

You will not find my products for sale anywhere else, they are unique to my Zazzle store.

You will not find my videos any where else, they are unique to my YouTube channel.

The message is clear: UNIQUE CONTENT that is 100% genuinely user created, by YOU and YOU alone, is what Google wants.

Create your own unique content,

Make your own unique products,

Write your own unique articles,

Film your own unique videos,

Rather then just promoting affiliates.

Uniqueness is what FRED is telling us Google wants.

Also new: We've been approved by Google to test out a new type of Google ad program, that displays "intelligent" and "responsive" ads based off of YOUR internet browsing search history, showing you ads based of YOUR interests. These new AI ads are part of Google's artificial intelligence program, known as RankBrain, and are displayed based on which web site you've visited in the last 28 days, as well as items you've bought off online stores, and any search terms you've typed into your browser. We at EelKat.com have no control over what ads this AI ad program displays, as the ads are based off your browser history and not our web site topics.
