Since I’ve been “Googlespammed”…

I found this interesting. Apparently, if enough bloggers link to a particular website with certain words in the link, it can radically effect the way a search engine “sees” that page. This article on Wired News about John Kerry getting Googlebombed is a little old, but it sums the issue up nicely.
I guess that’s what’s next for me, right? This bottom-feeder that snaked my #1 Google search result is going to Googlebomb me for making his “job” harder. Oh, man, I can’t wait. Oh, God, what has the web come to?
