IF youre a woman who would like to date younger men, you can find lots of articles about these relationships by doing a Google search.
But as a woman looking for a man, you might be a little confused by the advertisements that accompany these articles. One promises to help you find sexy Latin women, and another, hot Latvian ladies. But there are no links to the growing number of cougar dating sites, matching older women with younger men, on content sites that show up in a Google search. Google has recently deemed those dating sites nonfamily safe, and therefore its ads for such sites containing the word cougar will not be allowed on so-called content pages.
The Google advertising system has two components: one for ads that appear next to search results, and one for its content network. For a company like CougarLife.com, now banned from the content network, that means its ads will no longer appear on more than 6,700 Web sites, including Ask.com, YouTube and MySpace, which accounted for 60 percent of its traffic, said Thomas Koshy, vice president for marketing at CougarLife, a Toronto-based site that says it has a half-million members, men and women.
Google continues to allow similar advertising for the many sites that match older men and younger women, like DateAMillionaire.com, which assures its clients they can meet sugar babies.
So cougars and cubs are out, but sugar daddies and sugar babies are in.
Blurbs and sponsored links, which typically pop up on the right side of the screen, for dating sites like CougarLife.com and other nonfamily sites (one screams Date a hot cheating wife!) will still appear along with a list of search results.

Meanwhile, pedophiles remain welcome.
She almost gives Helen a run for her money
(Please, no photos)
Anything that points out Google’s intrusions into its supposedly comprehensive search engine is okay by me.
Must.....resist...< i m g s r c =”....
Is that Helen being coy?
Image Google “Elena Kagan Softball” and you won’t find a damned thing. Go to Bing and do the same search and the WSJ photos of Kagan playing softball are the first hits listed. Google Lies.
She might look a little rough but, she’s got very soft hands and a good grip.
That’s her daughter....great cook.
