You might wonder what is Google bomb. It’s not actually a bomb that explodes and distroy everything, but it’s the term use to refer an attempt to influence the ranking of a particular site in Google SERP.
Le’s take this blog as an example on this.
If you will search “selaplana” using the Google Search Engine, you’ll find that this blog is on the top 1 rank. How did I do that? Well, I need to apply Google Bombing just to win the ranking battle for the keyword, “selaplana”.
I know some of you knew already that I was previously managing a personal network of blogs which I called it the “Ka Webspy Network“. With the blogs on this network, I published links to this blog using the term “SELaplana” as its anchor. So, as Google followed this links from this netwok, Google realized that the term “SELaplana” refers to this blog. So, whenever someone searches “selaplana” on Google Search engines, Google ranks this blog on the top 1 position.
I realized that the example I mentioned above is not actually for the Google bomb. However, Google Bombing is done by the same procedure.
Google bomb, according to Google’s blog, refers to a prank where people attempt to cause someone else’s site to rank for an obscure or meaningless query. For example, if we want to rank this blog on the top position of the Google SERP with the keyword “dumb Southern Leyte blogger“, what we will do is to create links from other sites to this blog using “dumb Southern Leyte blogger” as the anchor texts. If Google search bot finds many link to this blog using that achor texts then this blog might be ranked top 1 on the Google SERP when searching for “dumb Southern Leyte blogger“.
