  • Google Bombing....

    The Political Cartoons that enraged the middle east has sparked the Iranians into responding with Holocaust Political Cartoons. So how are the Israeli's going to respond? With Search Engine Optimization, or also known as a Google Bomb.

    A Google Bomb is when you enter a phrase into Google and due to a small number of links, you receive some surprise links at the top of the search page. For example, there has been a big push from some to link the term "Miserable Failure" to GW. If you go to Google and enter Miserable Failure, #1 on the list will lead you to GW's Bio. #2 is Jimmy Carter, 3 is Michael Moore. So how does that happen?

    Web users entering the words "miserable failure" into the popular search engine are directed to the biography of the president on the White House website.

    The trick is possible because Google searches more than just the contents of web pages - it also counts how often a site is linked to, and with what words.
    Another link on the subject... http://searchenginewatch.com/serepor...le.php/3296101

    So what are the Israeli's going to do when it is announced that Iran has released their political cartoons mocking the holocaust? According to Radio Host Mark Davis, a little Search Engine Optimization in order to bury their links so deep that only the most persistent can find it.

    Blew my mind to run through that little excercise but hearing that has opened my eyes quite a bit more.

    Hey wait, Google might technicaly be considered part of the media.

    If that's true... Then there is a Jewish Media Conspiracy!

        Wait...a google bomb works to promote a website's popularity, doesn't it? How could you google bomb a website to the bottom of the list, which is in effect what the intent of this operation seems to be? Isn't that the inverse of a google bomb?

        Principles of good Sandbox Etiquette:
        Assume good faith - Be polite, please! - Work toward agreement. - Argue facts, not personalities. - Concede a point when you have no response to it, or admit when you disagree based on intuition or taste. - Be civil. - Be prepared to apologize. In animated discussions, we often say things we later wish we hadn't. Say so. - Forgive and forget. - Recognize your own biases and keep them in check. - Give praise when due.

          What you would do is actively link OTHER sites to the top in order to bury another site. This could be used to drop a website out of the top 20. That leads to fewer potential hits. So when Iran releases their cartoons, there will be geeks working OT in order to make sure the most popular websites carrying those cartoons are quickly dropped from the front pages of Google and their brethren.

              I would rather see the cartoons from iran. It is healthy to see how other people feel about you. Let them show their true colors to the world and make total jackasses outta themselves.
