    anybody ever come across blogs that use tags generated from elsewhere on the web (not user-generated)? I have seen many blog posts that have tags that don?t relate to the posts themselves. In other words, there are a ton of blog posts I am seeing that are tagged with stuff that doesn?t relate the blog at all. For example, a whole blog can be dedicated to trends in social media and Google+ may be tagged ?monkey doing a backflip?, ?monkey eating bananas?, ?banana boat?, etc. Why would anybody tag a post with these stupid tags that have nothing to do with the posts themselves? Is it possible that the tags are not input by the siteop and are added by some other person or scraper? Is this just some weird SEO tactics? Why would anybody try and promote something stupid like a monkey eating a banana or doing a backflip
