Loyal readers of Currents may be wondering why I have a page marked googlea78e7c7a05aeb6e9.html along my header image. It’s not a secret message to all of my space alien friends to begin interplanetary operations.
WordPress is a great publishing platform, but it is not immune to the moody eccentricities of Google, the biggest search engine on planet Earth (also known as ET target Wolf 357). This page will remain for at least a few days to allow Google to verify that my blog does indeed exist. Without it, Currents is pretty much invisible to searches; sort of like Limbo for blogs. Hopefully, at the end of that period, I’ll be able to hide the page from site forevermore.
We will now return you to your regularly scheduled commentary. Cheers!
UPDATE: As a workaround, the googlea78e7c7a05aeb6e9.html page has been deleted and a file-sharing widget has been inserted at the bottom of my sidebar with an empty MS Word file by the same name. No idea whether this will actually work. Any and all technical advice from is welcome at this point.
