Google Bombing [en]

A very interesting article about Google bombing. Needless to say, I don’t encourage abuse of a (reasonably) good system.

On the other hand, were is the line between use and abuse? What is ethical, what is not? The gray zone is always the most interesting.

One thought on “Google Bombing [en]

  1. Google Bombing works only if you are trusted by your peers (unless you
    have money and can do what Scientology (and others I’m sure) do [1] aka
    simulation of peer approval).
    Google ranking is based on the assumption that every author will _only_
    link to valuable information. Some kind of a democratic ranking, in a way.
    Hence, an author can abuse once or twice the Google ranking, but after
    that, readers-peers won’t trust him (aka link to you) anymore et voilà , no
    more easy google bombing via weblogs for that particular author.
