Unbiased Google?

10.20.2005

Not sure if any of you have come across this yet, but i want you to try something fun.
open up google and type in 'failure' into the search bar.
Then click Im feeling Lucky button, see what comes up. I wonder if there is a message in there somewhere from Google execs or corporate culture.
Its probably conincidence though, right?

    No, it's an actual technique used by bloggers and webmasters around the world. If you organise it that a certain number (I've read it's quite low, around 50 or so) make a link to a certain website - say, the White House - and have the word "failure" in the link HTML (eg. failure ), then its very likely that it'll hit number one on Google for that word.

    It's called "Google-bombing". As I recall, Democratic bloggers carried this out a year or two back.

    Im sure FFFF could use some of those tactics, should they be so sly.
