John Kerry Bombed, Sort Of

By Deane Barker on May 24, 2004

Google Search: waffles: John Kerry got Google-bombed. Not surprisingly, Wikipedia has an excellent page on Google-bombing that reveals some bombs I didn’t know had been dropped. I love this one.

If you knew you were getting Google-bombed, couldn’t you take some counter-measures? Say a bunch of people linked the term “pompous blowhard” to my home page. Given that Google has the search term in the HTTP Referrer, couldn’t I sniff for that and redirect to someone else’s page? Like Darl McBride’s, for instance?
