I haven’t looked at traffic stats on this site for ages, but I have noticed two stupid things: one, Facebook now thinks all links to it are spam (and Fucking Zucc’d everyone who ever posted or shared one, very nice and typical of them) and two, Google page rank is down in the low Fuck This Shit I’m Out tier.
I suspect the loss of Google rank is due to my removing the share buttons that were causing *LOTS* of extraneous scripts to run from Facebook and useless third party cookies to be set by Pinterest and Twitter. I hope turning off the share buttons wasn’t also what caused a lot of innocent Facebook users to potentially get lobbed in Facebook Jail. Then again, what doesn’t, that site is complete trash and has an advertising market which cheerfully allows stuff like this:
Oh, also, enjoy your ransomware campaigns. The only saving grace was that the command and control server didn’t work at the time that the ads went live. You’d think Facebook would have maybe blacklisted fake Clubhouse ads just like they’ve blacklisted, you know, this totally harmless blog…. but of course not. There’s a definite double standard at work and FB Ads will cheerfully take content that’d get a normal user thrown in the Zucc Hole.
But enough about that. Here’s my cat being adorable.
