George’s Google Bomb Defused

Google has just altered its search algorithym to negate the effects of ‘Google Bombing’ on certain phrases, most notable the term ‘Miserable Failure‘ that famously brought up George W Bush’s profile on the White House website as the #1 result.

Darren Jamieson, aka MrDaz, is the Technical Director and co-founder of Engage Web and has been working online in a career spanning two decades. His first website was built in 1998 and is still live today.
