Zeitgiest in Action: "Miserable Failure"

By - December 03, 2003


Type “miserable failure” into Google. Out pops Google’s top pick: George W. Bush. This comes to me via Farber’s IP list, but many others have crossed my desk over the past year, including one on “weapons of mass destruction” which – if you hit “I’m Feeling Lucky” – still gaves a 404: Not Found-like error thanks to the vagaries of web humor, linking, and PageRank.

UPDATE: This was a case of Googlebombing, see here….
