Old news is no news

Old news is no news

: Has anyone else noticed that the headlines on GoogleNews are getting very stale? It’s not as if the editor got tired; it’s a computer. I used to be able to check in to find the latest. Now I find one- and even two-day-old headlines.

    That’s unfortunate, but I find it somewhat heartening because my blog has almost completely dropped off of Google (probably because of a recent overhaul I performed on my site, but I’d have expected to see it back to normal by now).
    I would speculate that Google may be doing another fabled top-secret algorithm rethink. So far I liked the old algorithm better. But I wouldn’t want to be thought of as a backseat driver.
    Let’s hope we’re just seeing the calm before the latest massive update storm in the blessed “Google Dance.”
