We all know Google is the bomb, but how many of you know what a Google Bomb is? From Wikipedia:
A Google bomb is an attempt to influence the ranking of a given page in results returned by the Google search engine. Due to the way that Google’s PageRank algorithm works, a page will be ranked higher if the sites that link to that page all use consistent anchor text. A Google bomb is created if a large number of sites link to the page in this manner.
Let’s give it a try. Search Google for [miserable failure]. You see the first result is George W. Bush’s bio on the White House site. That my friends, is a Google bomb.
It appears that some Florida bloggers are trying to bomb talk show host Bill O’Reilly with a [terrorist supporter] search. They are urging other bloggers to link to Bill O’Reilly website from text saying ‘terrorist sympathizer’. Ha, it worked.
Why are these Florida bloggers wielding their mighty sword? O’Reilly recently joked that terrorists should bomb San Francisco’s Coit Tower.
