Anybody know what happened with Google ? Before a couple of days ago, when I typed "WACA" in the Google search box, the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th page of listings would include "Winchester Arms Collector Association" in heavy print. For the past few days, doing the same search yields a listing of "Winchester collector" in light print. Clicking on this later listing still leads to the WACA website, but it just bugs me how computer-type stuff will change settings seemingly on its own whim.

Did the WACA search on Google and it came up 7th on the 2nd page.
Earlier this year I became aware of Google's anti-gun agenda. I started comparing Google and Yahoo results for gun related topics and noticed that I was getting over 3 times more results when searching on Yahoo than on Google. After that I deleted all my links to Google and have started using Yahoo exclusively.

Actually, there was an issue with the search engine file (robots.txt) on the WACA site which caused all of the search engines to stop scanning the site. It was put there to prevent the site from being listed while it was under development, and was overlooked when the site went live, until just a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, it prevented the site from being scanned by any search engine and the ratings most likely slipped considerably because of this.
The issue has been corrected and hopefully we will slide back up to the top in the not too distant future.
And before we get too hard on Google, realize that the blog above was from 2012.
