CCN Shuts Down Soon after Major Google Search Update


Cryptocurrency news website CCN.com is shutting down after going through a 71% slide in cell site visitors due to a modern update to Google’s search rankings. Founder Jonas Borchgrevink posted the news on his website saying:

CCN was started in the summer months of 2013 as CryptoCoinsNews. We have been all-around for 6 years. We are (were being?) the crypto-linked news website with the maximum volume of site visitors globally. Although CoinDesk and CoinTelegraph have been welcoming competition with us the past 6 years for the #1 Alexa place.

The website commenced its life as a cryptocurrency-concentrated news source and, as evidenced by inside charts posted by Borchgrevink, enjoyed superior site visitors and strong organic search activity. This all arrived crashing down after what Google called its June 2019 Core Update, an update that Google claimed was “designed to boost our benefits.”

“Most have minimal recognizable improve but assist us continue to incrementally boost search,” wrote Google’s SearchLiaison on October 11, 2018.

The update seemingly also dinged web sites like the Each day Mail, foremost Borchgrevink and others to speculate that CCN’s conservative posts led to the reduction in search activity.

Whilst CCN is unbiased as a news website – this means no political agenda from the editorial board – we have authorized all types of opinions from journalists and visitor writers. From the considerably remaining to the considerably ideal. Many of our political Op-Eds have been “Pro-Trump.” Recall: We are largely a crypto centered news website. Cryptocurrencies commenced with Bitcoin in 2009 as a counteraction towards the money meltdown and the cartel-like electrical power possessed by financial institutions and The FED (which is privately owned). Bitcoin is, or at the very least was supposed to be, DECENTRALIZED. We are legitimate to the crypto group with our slogan: We Are Anti-Elite, We Are Anti-Centralization.

We have achieved out to Borchgrevink for further more remark.
