Hi ChesterK, that's great news about the lost posts!
They can't keep us quiet for long, eh?
Unfortunately I've discovered that we are now nowhere to be seen on Google for the search term "Struthers Memorial church" nor can we be found any more under "Struthers Memorial Church Cult". In fact, the only way I could find us in Google was to use the search term "Struthers memorial independent Pentecostal church cult" and who the heck is going to use that as a search term???
This is really quite a blow to all of us because now we are nowhere to be found for normal search terms. This means that Latigo remains a sole voice in the multitude of crap being posted by SMC and I'm not convinced that this is enough information for people who are searching on Struthers Memorial Church.
It seems that SMC have won the Google battle and we have indeed been drowned out since the selling of the domain and moving of the servers. This is a really bad blow for us, even although we have managed to retrieve all the lost posts, we are now no longer publicly visible anyway.
I don't know why we've disappeared entirely since this was not the case a couple of weeks ago and beggars belief a little. A couple of weeks ago we were at page 6 of the searches but now we're not even there and I went as far as up to page 18 before I gave up looking.
I really don't know what we do about this but I have an idea that if the Forum thread name was changed to just "Struthers Memorial Church" we may in fact turn up in more searches on this term.RRModerator, is it possible to change the name of the thread to just "Struthers Memorial Church" to help us beat down the competition from the plethora of sites that SMC have put up specifically to drown us out of Google searches. We used to come up on the front page 2 or 3 times but since the changes we have just disappeared from sight which means the public will not be getting the correct information about this organisation. Is there anything you can do to alleviate the damage caused by the domain name change and server moves? We all worked very hard to keep our thread in the public view and it's frustrating to think that it was all for nothing.
Happy Survivor, I would urge you to tell your story to the OSCR directly, you can email them in confidence at : email@example.com
. We all know the school is being used to 'groom' children into the SMC way to ensure a steady stream of brainwashed followers into the future but I think it's highly unlikely that OSCR will be able to even find this forum any more and will therefore not be up to date with new posts on the school.
I think it's vitally important to get this information directly to them since they will certainly NOT be getting the truth from SMC leaders/teachers. The leaders of SMC have been telling the public that the school is not an outreach and they only teach the school curriculum and have no hidden agenda. Of course we all know this is just lies and I do hope you will make your fears for the children known to the charities commission to aid in their investigation.
Several of us have already made our fears known to OSCR but your information is much more first hand and your knowledge of the inner workings of the school far outstrips ours and will give credence to what we have already discussed with OSCR ourselves.
Anyway, disappointment at our results in Google has been somewhat lightened by the fact that we have apparently not lost ANY posts at all from the thread. That's the best news I've had since the domain change and I'm putting the link in my signature for future reference, Kudos you guys!!
As always biiiiiiiig love and huge huggggggggggs
God Bless xxx
