+ - Political Bloggers Plan a "Google Bomb"

Submitted by homerj79
homerj79 writes: Poltitcal bloggers have begun a campaign to "Google bomb" political candidates. The idea is to make negative articles about the candidates they oppose appear near to top of search results. From the MSNBC article: Liberal bloggers had the idea first. Chris Bowers of MyDD outlined the strategy Sunday. He said the plan involves purchasing "Google AdWords that will place each negative article on the most common searches for each Republican candidate. Simultaneously, I will produce an article on MyDD that embeds that negative article into a hyperlink."

Money cannot buy love, nor even friendship.
