You read right.
The GOOG is at least partly to blame for the seemingly unending popularity of the trend that is ... cute kittens!
Now, when you set up a Blogger account, the google-powered dashboard shows you some useful information about how to best use this amazing and powerful tool, which can be used to share just about any kind of information, from the mundane, to the extraordinary, and even life-saving.
In short, Google is telling you and many other blogger users how to optimize your website to get solid rankings in the google search engine index, if not how to get to the top of the search results pages.
So which of these noble or good causes does the megawebgorilla choose to promote to new users?
Well, have a look for yourself at this screenshot, taken September 7, 2014.
|Google Promotes Blog About kittens|
When we attempted to contact the publisher of "Example Blog" for more information, said publisher could not be reached.
The same is true for the Google Blogger leader.
Meanwhile, an anonymous, unofficial spokesperson for the group denied denying any involvement, or truth to the rumor that Google prefers kittens to puppies.
So now you know. If you want to optimize your blog, do what "Example Blog" does ... create a page "About kittens" ... even if your website is about pollution management, or other fascinating arts and science.
