Google announces Agency of Record for George Bush and Tony Blair.
Google has announced that they will protect George Bush and Tony Blair from negative Public Relations in their search engine. Until yesterday, the #1 result for ‘Failure’ in Google led to George Bush’s profile page on Whitehouse.Gov and the #1 result for ‘Liar’ in Google led to Tony Blair’s profile page.
Google has now announced that they will become George Bush’s personal ‘Ad agency of Record’ by protecting him against negative PR. In essance they have removed any results that lead to George Bush’s profile page with a search containing ‘Failure’ ‘Miserable’ or any variation.
A similar note was made regarding Tony Blair. In short, Google is now their PR agency.
It’s a bad thing when this happen, the entire reason Google was successful was due to it’s democratic nature of it’s Patented Pagerank system. Where links to webpages where considered votes, now it’s pressure from the Whitehouse that influences Google Results.
Currently there is an SEO contest regarding the keyword ‘ Globalwarming Awareness2007 ‘ , I am sure that that spam filled pollution of the SERPS pages will not face heavy handed tactics from Bush.. because Google isn’t concerned with spam as much as they are concerned with making sure George Bush looks good.
