    Hello everybody,

    In France, politicians are preparing for elections in May, so everyone begins to defend his camp.
    Apparently some SEO have joined the battle, making a little joke via a good old Google bombing.

    Few years ago (2006), the website of the French Republic President was the first result for keywords "trou du cul" ("asshole" in english) and now it's time for revenge...

    Today, with keywords "incapable de gouverner" ("unable to govern" in english), the first result is the website of a candidate from the other side :
    Code:
    http://www.google.fr/search?aq=0&hl=fr&ie=UTF-8&q=incapable+de+gouverner
    [​IMG]

    This bombing was easy because keywords "incapable de gouverner" are rarely used...
    Childsplay to rank on it.

    The French medias have spoken a lot about that, but everything is still alive, example with anchors text :

    Fun... :cool:

    I'm wondering, if it's illegal if you do that?
    I guess, especially because I'm in Germany, a big yes.

    Hi european neighbor !

    I think it's legal... Or I don't know why it can be illegal :confused:
    If it was insulting, so maybe the person offended could be complain...
    And even in this case, it's about that would be criticized, not the method.

    Google bombings are against the rules, not against the laws.
    In my opinion.
