"Site Build It! Scam" as Case Study
The previous 3 posts of this blog reviewed the 10+ years of Googlebomb history (over a 3-part series). Two conclusions are inescapable...
Google has systematically misled the public about the Googlebomb, including the very existence of a "Googlebomb" at the beginning (when many knew otherwise) up to today's sorry policy of manually fixing only those highly publicized bombs that risk the public's confidence in the quality of Google search.
For those thousands of little-known or unknown bombs that don't make it to "prime-time CNN," Google ignores them. In doing so, Google puts their users at risk of bad, fraudulent results. And Google fails to defend its own "Google Guidelines," the principles upon which they claim to base Google Search (and which they insist we all live by).
Google's "Detect and Defuse" Algorithm Today?
This is the final post of this blog until Google truly fixes the Googlebomb.
This post will be updated when a Googlebomb algorithm is truly "detecting and defusing" Googlebombs as Google claims to be doing. When that happens, expect behavior to satisfy a minimum of the requirements in the 5-Minute Bomb Algorithm, whenever it is run ("infrequently" or automatically).
We use our own 2.5 year experience as the innocent target of a Googlebomb to illustrate the dangerous user experience that results...
