The BITCOIN Google Bomb Thread


New to bitcoin? Scroll down to learn about this new decentralized. anonymous crytocurrency.

"Google bombs" are collective efforts to link to a site by a key phrase and artificially elevate a Web site in the Google search results for that search phrase. Google bombs rely heavily on the influence of PageRank.


Search terms are:
 1.  is bitcoin unstoppable
 2.  bitcoin better than USD
 3.  bitcoin scam

Simply search those phrases in google.

The reason we picked these specific terms is precisely that they are controversial in nature. That will cause many people to click links out of curiosity.

Everyone needs to pitch in here to help the searches reach the top of the rankings. We do have 30,000 forum members.

Is bitcoin a scam? Is it unstoppable? Could bitcoin be better than the USD?
We encourage people to read the many good articles below and form their own opinions.


This forum is also a very good resource if you want to learn more. (search is your friend).

Yes how dare we slip bitcoin in when there are already great topics as the hot searches such as Rupert Murdoch, and mariah carey twins.

I think its a good idea, although I don't think our base has nearly as many people as alex jones.

If you can find a search term that leads to a good article or something I"ll type it in though.

We need more shops to accept Bitcoins, a better "Easy to Use" client and Bitcoin will be a success...

What will be the phrase? Sound money?

Or maybe something more political? End the Fed! Stop inflation!

Cheesy

Good luck on that. I guess you'll need lots of people...

Easycoin should be handling the "usability issue" for the noobs.

There's nothing unethical there if you don't vandalize any site...

Alright lets try it. Even with our limited numbers we should still make some impact. We won't make #1 search term obviously.

Search terms are:
 1.  is bitcoin unstoppable
 2.  Bitcoin better than USD



If you see this thread, just go to google and search those phrases.

the real bomb would be if someone searches for USD and Bitcoin comes up on top


I remember something like that was done to G Bush, when you'd enter Failure in Google, first link was pointing to G W Bush few years back

"is Bitcoin unstoppable" will be relatively easy, but 'bombing' looses it's point because someone searching for that term already knows about bitcoin

the point of it is, so when people are looking at the hot searches of the day they see it and click on the link.

you've got a point there mayabong, but to get on google's top trend searches you really need millions of links
I was looking at it from perspective to associate it with something different - this way getting in front of new eyeballs when they search for something other than the subject, 'bitcoin' in our case.

I hear what your saying as far as tricking people. This method doesn't have anything to do with how many links you got, its rated by how many people searched for it,   Like I said before, alex jones has a few million listeners a day and thats how he gets up there so we need some help. Smiley

why is it that a secret is so much more intriguing,
than someone trying to constantly shove shit in your face?

I'm going to put this in my sig.
