A likely Google Bomb leaves Europeans wondering if a hacker is making a statement.
What’s interesting is that this ‘hack’ has all of the hallmarks of a politically-motivated Google Bombing.
A Google (GOOG) bombing is a concerted effort by a number of users to link a phrase with an unflattering site on the Web. For instance, one of the most popular Google bombings was ‘miserable failure,’ which linked to the the biography of former U.S. president George W. Bush. The first reported Google bombing took place in 1999 when a search for “more evil than Satan himself” resulted in the Microsoft homepage as the top result.
