I also noticed this. I read the blog through Google Reader and this post showed up this morning:

"lGoogle, fix your blog pleeasssee! <3

(P.S. Just to clear things up, I'm not associated with Google at all. I just wanted to take advantage of this before someone else with less worthy intentions did.)"

Clicking through to the original item shows a page not found error at blogger ( though, so I guess they've already repaired the problem.

Though SearchEngineWatch proclame that Treys googleblog-hack didn't actually make it to the site, but only was seen in feedreaders (, I did indeed see it.

At about 7.30 I noticed that the originally googleblog was replaced with one of those standard blogger-designs titled "Google", and with the blue blogspot bar at the top. The post had the url and there also was a profile description with link to:

About 8 am the site was replaced with a 404 "Not Found" and 8.30 the originally blog was up again.
After they took it down I had a second post in my feed-reader fom Trey:

"Googleblog Cache
You can view an old version of the real Googleblog at Google's cache of the Official Google Blog. It's a few days old, though, and I know it's missing some of the latest posts"

No, I didn't link my site because I wasn't there for attention. I just wanted to hold the site so nobody else could get it while things were being fixed. I put some info temporarily on my site ( after a nice rush of people decided to Google me and contact me.
