Simple idea: load up a site’s metadata so search engines are discouraged to attribute a high value.
nofollow, probably others.
If I spend my life being awesome and writing about it at maiki.xyz I don’t want to leave the burden of keeping that domain registered so others don’t commercialize my “brand value”.
Also, I’m not concerned about state actors or folks following me along my journey, but enemies will search the archives for ammo, but I’ve noticed my enemies are often lacking in intellectual curiosity, and would rely on search engines in their attempts to throw entropy my way.
And finally, it literally does not matter. I’ve lived my whole life actively fighting web capitalism, and yet whenever anyone needs to see my website they do. I have *phenomenal conversion rates, over 100%! How can that be? When folks visit my sites they often leave with more knowledge than they were expecting, the purpose of my websites.
Search engines are for people who are lost in a casino. My websites are for humans I know, and I’m rarely lost in a casino.
