Google got no love for cougar dating
Google has decided to banish cougar dating sites from the Google search kingdom. Apparently dating sites like CougarLife.com have been banned from its content pages for being “non-family safe”.
What is the issue here? The word cougar? In an email to CougarLife.com from Google, the search engine’s concern is “the concept of ‘cougar dating’ as a whole”. Google also asked if the dating company would consider changing their domain name and the cougar idea in totality.
“It’s just all around wrong. It’s age and gender discrimination. It’s just about older, successful, independent, strong women who enjoy someone that’s younger. Some of the men sites, they are borderline prostitution, and Google has no problem having them advertise” said, president of CougarLife.com, Claudia Opdenkelder, to the Times.

What are you looking for?
This is the height of double standards. Try comparing this dating site to other dating sites (like SeekingArrangements.com for instance) that have sugar daddies looking for fresh 'sugar babies'; college students and aspiring actresses being paired with sticking rich old men for “mutually beneficial arrangements” as they put it… Is Google classifying such in the ‘family safe’ category? If Google can allow this, what’s wrong with “independent, sexy and wildly successful” cougars seeking ‘cubs’?
