Do a thread search. I think it's explained pretty well on some.

Liberals manipulating the web is how it happens.

So they are all congratulating themselves over this stunning political act. Meanwhile, we've got Dan Rather's scalp.

Your from China? I know a guy from China!

You may know him, he is short, brown straight hair. I think his name is Ling or Ping or something like that.

Does that sound familiar? Do you know each other?

Old news. It's called a "google bomb": people create tons of links to a particular page, for example by putting links in blog comments all over the blogosphere. That raises the "page rank", until the target page becomes the #1 hit. The same trick was used for "french military victories".

It's called Google Bombing and it has been going on for a while. Some schmuck makes a website that redirects your query to some other page. It is actually becoming pretty common, though Google refuses to stop it. They say they are just a window on the Internet and they are more or less right. It isn't their fault, but they will nix really obnoxious stuff.

The word "failure" doesn't even appear in that bio of GW Bush. The question is not "why does this happen," but rather what is Google doing about this?

Google's explanation:

Googlebombing 'failure'
9/16/2005 12:54:00 PM
Posted by Marissa Mayer, Director of Consumer Web Products

If you do a Google search on the word [failure] or the phrase [miserable failure], the top result is currently the White House’s official biographical page for President Bush. We've received some complaints recently from users who assume that this reflects a political bias on our part. I'd like to explain how these results come up in order to allay these concerns.

Google's search results are generated by computer programs that rank web pages in large part by examining the number and relative popularity of the sites that link to them. By using a practice called googlebombing, however, determined pranksters can occasionally produce odd results. In this case, a number of webmasters use the phrases [failure] and [miserable failure] to describe and link to President Bush's website, thus pushing it to the top of searches for those phrases. We don't condone the practice of googlebombing, or any other action that seeks to affect the integrity of our search results, but we're also reluctant to alter our results by hand in order to prevent such items from showing up. Pranks like this may be distracting to some, but they don't affect the overall quality of our search service, whose objectivity, as always, remains the core of our mission.

Amazing what the mentally diseased liberal mind can do. Imagine what it could do if it even had a shred of a desire to actually HELP people.

Our local cable co. has picked up the GOOGLE CURRENT channel, which spews nothing by stinking liberal garbage crap! WHERE are our conservatives billionaires? My goodness, if they would only invest in a conservative pro-American channel they would multiply their Billions!! WHERE THE HECK ARE THEY?? Sigh, I'm listening to our president, after that the tube goes off...:(

Perhaps we should googlebomb Google's website with the phrase "Internet Scam" and see how long they would let that one stay out there.
