Reddit Ensures Rick Santorum’s Google Rankings Remain
[ Search]

By now, you’ve probably heard about Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum and his dealings with Google. The issue had to with a particularly unsavory definition that was applied to the candiate’s last name when an Internet search was conducted, something Josh covered extensively here.

Now, thanks to some Reddit users who refuse to let Santorum escape without a steady reminder of the alternative definition of his last name, it appears as if Santorum’s “Google problem” won’t be going away anytime soon.

Remember the Google bombs of old? You know, the nigritude ultramarine contest, John Kerry’s waffles fun, and George Bush’s miserable failure results? Well, some Reddit members are ensuring the alternate definition for “Santorum” applies to queries for the last name by itself and for searches using his first and last name. The strategy, just in case you forgot, was explained perfectly in the Reddit comments:

A public notice regarding Santorum.

Not completely sure how it works, but evidently if you link Santorum with the web site http://spreadingsantorum.com/ then that tends to keep Santorum name properly associated with the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex.

Something about Google bots picking up Santorum’s name each time Santorum is mentioned and linked online like that.

So to review, when you link Santorum with the web site http://spreadingsantorum.com/ then that tends to keep Santorum’s name properly associated with the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex.

Evidently this happens every time Santorum’s name is mentioned and linked online, so please be careful when you do mention Santorum’s name, and especially when you may associate Santorum with the web site http://spreadingsantorum.com/ and then further reference Santorum with the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide this notice about Santorum.

This comment is followed by a number of troll-like comments that link the “Rick Santorum” name to the SpreadingSantorum.com website, with the goal of having the alternate definition rank highly for both the “Santorum” and the “Rick Santorum” search queries.

And their efforts seem to be working.

As of Josh’s writing, the site promoting the alternate definition that has the Senator up in arms — The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex — was ranked third when the term “Rick Santorum” was queried. Today, SpreadingSantorum.com has moved up to the second position.

So, considering Reddit’s efforts, does this mean it’s still Google’s problem or does Santorum need to hire some SEO experts for his campaign?

Top Rated White Papers and Resources

    If he were not a backward-looking bigot, we would leave him alone. Maybe instead of hiring SEO experts, he should consider taking some classes on diversity tolerance.

  • Bob

    You mean this Rick Santorum?

  • xenu

    Seriously thank you for continuing the legacy by posting his names so many times again on this site. If Santorum wants to make his political agenda based nearly solely on getting BLACK PEOPLE off of welfare so whites dont have to pay, stopping gay marrage, spending more money to fight the pointless war on drugs, making abortions illegal (even the life saving ones that SANTORUMS WIFE’S ABORTION WAS FOR), and making BIRTH CONTROLL ILLEGAL. then he deserves every frothy bad reports on him and his fecal matter opinions.

  • xenu

    oh and i am sorry the welfare part about blacks and whites were from a direct quote from santorum who is now denying he said blacks, and on a related matter… i saw the video he said blacks… didnt stumble on a single word of that sentance was very articulate and continued strait on talking without missing a beat or correcting the unmistakeably racist comment.

  • thomas

    He really should change his name, being a homophobe and all.
    But at least he didn’t kill 5 hookers.
