Googlebombing strikes again

Via Nick Barlow: Guess who turns up if you enter "liar" into Google and hit "I'm feeling lucky"?


Try doing the search in NZ google only, you get a well known media outlet that always exposes the truth......

Did you actually try it?

You get
1) a spam site that doesnt even load up properly
2) liar liar (i.e. Jim carey)
3) big fat liar (i.e. Paul giamatti & staring frankie Muniz)
4) Tony Blair

Geezz all those anti social little morons trying to screw up the system. its like running through the library drawing in pen on all the dictionaries. What do you think a person searching for Liar is looking for? Probably somthing more like this....

I suggest google instigate a system that automatically reduces the page rank of any page that is a part of any identified "google bomb".

yeah I'm a no fun spoil-sport I guess.

Genius, I don't think you hit "I'm Feeling Lucky" - if you do you get for the world (which seems to be something of a non-site) and this for nz only.

Im feeling lucky just gives you the first listing. I assumed the "joke" was about no 4 on the world list. Tony blair.

This morning it was pointing at Tony Blair's biography. But yes, it seems to fluctuate around a bit - it's not as stable as "miserable failure".
