    haha


    If you do a Google search on the word [failure] or the phrase [miserable failure], the top result is currently the White House’s official biographical page for President Bush. We've received some complaints recently from users who assume that this reflects a political bias on our part. I'd like to explain how these results come up in order to allay these concerns.

    Google's search results are generated by computer programs that rank web pages in large part by examining the number and relative popularity of the sites that link to them. By using a practice called googlebombing, however, determined pranksters can occasionally produce odd results. In this case, a number of webmasters use the phrases [failure] and [miserable failure] to describe and link to President Bush's website, thus pushing it to the top of searches for those phrases. We don't condone the practice of googlebombing, or any other action that seeks to affect the integrity of our search results, but we're also reluctant to alter our results by hand in order to prevent such items from showing up. Pranks like this may be distracting to some, but they don't affect the overall quality of our search service, whose objectivity, as always, remains the core of our mission.

    Here's what BBC reported:

    'Miserable failure' links to Bush
    George W Bush has been Google bombed.

    Web users entering the words "miserable failure" into the popular search engine are directed to the biography of the president on the White House website.

    The trick is possible because Google searches more than just the contents of web pages - it also counts how often a site is linked to, and with what words.

    Thus, members of an online community can affect the results of Google searches - called "Google bombing" - by linking their sites to a chosen one.

    Weblogger Adam Mathes is credited with inventing the practice in 2001, when he used it to link the phrase "talentless hack" to a friend's website.

    The search engine can be manipulated by a fairly small group of users, one report suggested.

    If you are George Bush and typed the country's name in the address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly (IRAQ)
    Prank website
    Newsday newspaper says as few as 32 web pages with the words "miserable failure" link to the Bush biography.

    The Bush administration has been on the receiving end of pointed Google bombs before.

    In the run-up to the Iraq war, internet users manipulated Google so the phrase "weapons of mass destruction" led to a joke page saying "These Weapons of Mass Destruction cannot be displayed."

    The site suggests "clicking the regime change button", or "If you are George Bush and typed the country's name in the address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly (IRAQ)".

    >>> I bet you should watch the documentary film Fahrenheit 9/11 by Michael Moore. The director's view on what happened to the United States after September 11; and how the Bush Administration allegedly used the tragic event to push forward its agenda for unjust wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
