The Power of the Googlebomb
Today's WorldNetDaily article by Joseph (don't call him Joe) Farah shows how powerful it is. I discovered the power of the googlebomb about a year ago. Since then, on both this site and the recently created Googlebomb Blog, I have been able to inform many Google-searchers about many of the leading operatives on the American right.
A quick explanation of the Googlebomb Project: Its goal is to take the names of important right-wing operatives and organizations and link them to a group of web sites that expose them for who they are. The more sites that do this, the more likely that the informational sites get a high Google rating for a keyword search. Read more here.
When I read that Farah accused googlebombing opponents of anti-Semitism, I didn't know what he was writing about. Apparently, when I originally linked a grouping of anti-Farah articles, somehow, a link by some guy who is as much of a conspiracy nut as Farah was inadvertently included. That link was removed. Probable explanation: in the process of cutting and pasting links, it got through accidently. D'oh.
Googlebombing is a powerful technique. For instance, last year I and other bloggers googlebombed David Bossie's name. The results? For a Google search of Bossie's name, you have to go to the fifth site listed to get the official site for Bossie's group. The first four sites give critical information about Bossie (in fact, the majority of the top ten searches are informational). More can be done.
