Miley Cyrus is trending all over the internet after her scandalous, near-nude performance at the MTV Video Music Awards last night, but just because posting an article that contains the name Miley Cyrus in the headline is guaranteed to bring in unique hits regardless of the quality or content of the article doesn't mean that The Outhouse is going to publish an article about Miley Cyrus today unless there is some kind of logical reason for us to do so.
For instance, if Miley Cyrus were rumored to be cast in Superman vs. Batman with Ben Affleck, we could probably get away with posting the names Miley Cyrus and Ben Affleck repeatedly in an article, and this abundance of search engine friendly keywords would almost certainly result in a notable increase in web traffic with very little effort on our parts. However, since Miley Cyrus has not been cast as a love interest for Ben Affleck, or in any role whatsoever for that matter, we really shouldn't do that, and so we won't.
No, in fact, Miley Cyrus is not involved with Ben Affleck at all. Instead, she engaged in something called "twerking" with Robin Thicke onstage at the VMAs last night, and that has nothing to do with comics. So, if we were to publish an article today mentioning Miley Cyrus as many times as possible, perhaps with references to hot pics of Miley Cyrus at the VMAs, for no real reason, it would be completely transparent, and we wouldn't do that to you.
So be at ease, loyal Outhouse readers. You can have faith that The Outhouse would never resort to tricks like namedropping Miley Cyrus as many times as we can in an article that has nothing to do with Miley Cyrus on a day that Miley Cyrus is trending on popular news sites and social media. We won't repeatedly use the phrase "Miley Cyrus twerking" out of context, and we won't put pictures of Miley Cyrus twerking at the MTV Video Music Awards with Robin Thicke in this article so that it shows up in Google Images as well, and never, under any circumstances whatsoever, would we blurt out something as completely irrelevant to anything even tangentially related to the subject matter we normally cover as "Miley Cyrus fingering herself with a giant foam hand."
We're better than that, and you're better than that, so we're not gonna do it.
Not without good reason.
Luckily, a good reason popped up this afternoon when Bleeding Cool reported that James Robinson would be writing two ongoing titles for Marvel, as announced at Toronto Fan Expo this weekend. This will probably be a part of the second wave of Marvel NOW! (Marvel NOWer?). That's pretty much all the information there is to go on, so we had to pad the article with something.
