    There will be time when a new glue will be on top beating google.

    I am one of those guys who wait for that.

    Reading the article makes me think that is not very far.

    Hi the new glue where are you..

    Thanks

    Defend what against it? A ranking? How could you. It's a group of unrelated people that will do what they want.

    Why would bloggers go after your term though?

    it's nothing i have a stake in, i was just thinking about the way a politician or say a corporation might defend themselves from it.

    in the article they mention:

    aside from the above, anyone have any ideas? let's pretend you fell into the latter category, of "lesser-known candidates, with a smaller body of references and links", and you were the subject of a google bomb attack. is there anything you can do online to reduce the effects of a google bombing after the fact?

    I'm guessing cloaking. If it's Google, redirect to say an anti-democrat site.

    I would think that you can detect what the referrer is and if they searched for a particular term you could redirect them elsewhere?

    I'm no php genius but this is what I hacked together some months ago as part of a script, see php resources/sites for more info.

    $referparts[] = parse_url($_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']);

    echo $referparts[0][host];

    Would this be the same as cloaking?

    Bomb back. Remember what happened with the Google bombing for the word "Jew". It originally led to JewWatch, an anti-semitic hate site until a Google Bombing moved the Wikipedia entry to the #1 spot. Supporters of JewWatch bombed back, and Wikipedia supporters bombed back again and now it is a constant battle for the #1 spot.
