Technnorati Bombing: Bush Indictment Hoax

2005-08-12 08:57 ☼ post

Search Engine Journal has an interesting post this morning on a possible Technorati Bombing by anti-Bush bloggers. It seems that for a while this morning Bush Indictment” was the number one search topic at Technorati (although it wasn’t when I checked a few hours later). Organic Warfare has additional thoughts on the matter as well.

It will be interesting to see if the many weblog posts like this one (and the above) help clarify and spread the word that’s it’s in all likelihood a hoax caused by a concerted effort by various hackers and bloggers to game Technorati’s system. I’m going to keep tabs on things and report back here what transpires over the next couple days.
