By using their blogs to create links from a given phrase to a particular page on the Web, googlebombers outfox the search engine's algorithm for determining what results pop up. The six-year-old practice has given us such devilish links as "more evil than Satan" to the Microsoft home page, "miserable failure" to President Bush's biography and "gastrointestinal dysentery" to a Florida restaurant that sacked a waiter for blogging about his job there.Can you guess which google bomb is mine?
