Google bombing

This technique exploits the Google search ranking by getting lots of sites to collude and use the same satirical/humorous and out-of-context anchor text when linking to a webpage. I'm sure this is old news to most people but it's still a nice, subtle and reasonably accessible way of making a political point.

For example, a restaurant fired a worker for blogging about it, and now look what turns up when you search for gastrointestinal dysentery.

And some other classics:

Worst president ever


Ignorant bigots

And sadly relegated to second in the Google rankings; this needs to get back to number one!
