ParentHerald.com: Another deplorable Google News site

It seems the pervasiveness of deplorable news sources in Google News is never ending. One that has appeared quite often for me of late is Parentherald.com. They consistently top the “News” for any celebrity gossip despite presenting as a site about “parenting”.

Here is an amazing and recent story on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie that showed up at the top of my results….screen-shot-2016-09-24-at-10-31-49-pm

I especially love that Jolie is suffering from “severed headaches” and “husband-and-wife bonding which is needed to keep the fire burning”. Hahaha!

Can you just imagine what ParentHerald serves up as parenting advice?

Obviously the writers have used some sort of translate software to translate the copy which means these writers are not in the US so why would they get top priority for info about US pop culture?

By the way this is not an anomaly. It’s standard for all of their articles.

Again. Why is this acceptable?

Another interesting thing Parentherald does that other deplorable yet highly ranked Google sites like Christian Times do is aggressively promote Advertorials for IPads.screen-shot-2016-09-25-at-12-36-43-am

Seems the quality of the content is irrelevant to Google. The question is why? Google continues to vehemently deny any wrong doing or any “pay for play”, but why are their still so many SEO sites that can “guarantee” you top placement with Google?

Why does ParentHerald show up at the to of Google News consistently? Surely I am not the first to complain to them about this content.

One thought on “ParentHerald.com: Another deplorable Google News site

  1. You are not alone. I was looking for parenting influencer sites and came across ParentHerald.com. It keeps popping up in my Google Alert for parenting news too. It would be great if it were a valuable news portal for parents, but the writing on the site is terrible. I’ve sent them a message about how the poor content is ruining any credibility it may have. We’ll see if they respond or take any action.
