Figured someone might be interested in Google's picks

A few of us in the Read My Lipstick Network have set up Google alerts on Sarah Palin's name. I get a daily list of all the stories Google thinks are important that include Sarah Palin's name for any reason. It's blogs and news stories. It's a real good indicator of the "mentality' of Google's search algorithms. I thought I'd start sharing these just so you can see how rare it is that a positive blog about Sarah Palin gets picked up by Google. There are hundreds and hundreds of positive blogs being penned every day about her and to date I have maybe seen one positive included in the list. I know some of my Lipstick sisters have already written about this and I may have mentioned it myself at some point in a prior blog, so I won't say more, but just know I'm in agreement. I'm not sure if it's wise to be dissing Google given I'm using one of their free services (blogger) so I type with trepidation. I noted that a couple of anti-Obama blog titles had been banned from blogger and am not sure of the reason!
