Please Read This- After "False Flag Cyber Attack" was quickly pulled from the Google Trends today, I later anticipated that "False Flag Cyber" would also be censored. This video shows that keyword as #1 and then disappearing from the top 20 completely. Typing the keyword back into the url variable, you can see this keyword still ranked "VOLCANIC" but was no longer ranked, even among those with lower ratings like: "on fire" "spicy" and "medium."
For the last several days, the most popular keywords in Google Trends have been censored from displaying at times. I assure you this is true beyond doubt. That is no longer the question to debate. Google admits they filter the list: http://www.google.com/intl/en/trends/about.html#4
The real question is whether this is happening by a computer algorithm considering these massive searches to be "spam," or is it because these keywords considered "inappropriate"
