Google: Hacker’s Best Friend?

The first exploitations of Google’s (Nasdaq: GOOG) peculiar search algorithms were humorous, political, or both. I’m referring the once-popular procedure of Google Bombing, a way of setting up links and Web pages in order to hijack the Google search on popular phrases. There was the one where “weapons of mass destruction” brought up a faux “cannot be found” page, and the one where anyone searching for “French military victories” was asked if he didn’t mean “defeats.” Google: Hacker’s Best Friend?
