Roots 'n' Shoots: Food Revolution Summit: April 26 – May 4, 2014

Why is RnS Moving to

Google had brought out an algorithm update in May 2017. With previous updates like Panda or Penguin, Mr G had penalized blogs or websites with low quality content and those more focused on aggressive adverts (including multiple ads or pop-up ads in articles). However, many blogs/websites that weren't shady got penalized beyond recovery too and a lot of people lost their income. The May 2017 update has had wide-scale effect on blogs and websites, but without any explanation from Mr G as to why or what it does. RnS has been hit by it too and hard. RnS organic search stats (i.e. users from Google) have dropped by 75% since. Even though RnS is not a source of income, I tried to figure out why RnS is being culled. It seems that it doesn't really have anything to do with RnS per se, but likely because RnS is FREE and not paying for page ranking (via AdWords or Ad Ranking). Now it is likely being aggressively shoved to lower page rankings to accommodate the paid ads.

I cannot rely on Mr G anymore to get RnS' content where it is needed. So I am busy moving RnS to Wordpress where you can find me as Whisker Flowers @

I am also imposing 301 redirects from already moved posts and pages!

Food Revolution Summit: April 26 – May 4, 2014

Food Revolution Summit

Here is another online conference for those of you interested. Unfortunately I won't be able to listen to this one myself as I am going to be very busy during that time. It is a free online conference; you can register and find more information at their website:

This summit is hosted by John and Ocean Robbins and concentrates mostly on food and the food economy (not specifically home vegetable gardening or food growing). It focuses on promoting health through healthy food choices.

P.S - I haven't forgotten about the summary post of the previous conference: Food Growing Summit 2014. I will be posting this in the near future! Watch this space!
