[linux-elitists] So...who's been google-hacking?

I completely fail to understand why you would want to _give_
your site's Google Juice _away_ to...let's just say, "example.com"
just so that example.com comes up when somebody searches for some
random phrase.

  Do a search for "cheese-spreading booty mongers"!  Go on, do it!
  Oh.  No, b-o-o-t-y.  See!  See!  Example.com!  Pretty fucking
  funny!  Get it?  Get it?

Ha ha.  We get it.  Dumb asses.

Look, some guy who paid $7.95 in perfectly good money for the domain
"microcontentnews.com" said that this stunt was "brilliant" two
years ago.

  http://www.microcontentnews.com/articles/googlebombs.htm

What does that say to you?  Right.  It's dumb.  You'll be just as
embarassed about this as about the web community forum you wrote
in the mid-90s, or that Mac OS X box, or the business card with the
title "Business Development Shaman", or that subscription to _Wired_.

If you want to help Google users understand a company, please
learn from the example of people who had something to say about
McDonald's, Home Depot, or Starving Students Movers.  Or SCO.

Put up a site, get people to link to your site with the name of
the company as the link text, and sit there in the number 2 or 3
spot calmly flipping the company the bird in your Description:.
It's like being able to put your letter to the editor about them
across from their full-page ad in every magazine in the world,
for nothing.  How many times do I have to explain this to you people?

Rule 1: Don't link to bad companies.

Rule 2: Write factual, informative pages about bad companies,
when you have facts about them you would like to share.

Rule 3: Link to the pages you wrote according to Rule 2, and get
others to do likewise.
