    Typing Miserable failure into Google produces an interesting site for 1st place!

    More about the story here:

    If it so easy what site would you choose for parasite?

    I've always suspected that Google knows things we don't...

    It does display their continued vulnerability to spamming, even with the new filters - algos.

    Just need to keep in mind that "miserable failure" is not likely to be a hotly contested 2 keyword combination.

    How'd they do that? I can't see how that page is optimized in any way for that term.

    Mr.Merchant, if you do business in any way what-so-ever with parasites, your products will not be sold on my sites!!

    Link text. Google Bombing still works. Last year they had problems with some sites showing up for hell, go to hell such as MSN and AOL. Then Google had an update and they fixed that. People thought that was for everyone. I always said they did it manually. And with the Florida update you can see where Google can just target some keywords more heavily than other.

    Wow, I thought this would come up here sooner. I read about it at a car stereo forum Monday.

    What part the Miserable Failure?
    http://abw.infopop.cc/6/ubb.x?a=tpc&...9&m=6376064905

    The Google Bombing has always worked, also works in MSN. I have a site linking to mine with a certain phrase that has never been on my site or metas and i'm #1 for that phrase in both SE's. Of course it's easier with a non-competitive phrase.

    So, if a site has enough heavy hitting incoming links for a certain phrase they will come up in Google for that phrase even if the phrase is nowhere on the site? COOL!!!! New toy!
