Propaganda by Search Engine OptimizationSubmitted by NowOrNever on Mon, 12/30/2013 - 14:33
When you type "Rand Paul" in Google, the first term in the recommended searches bar that pops up is "plagiarism" - and yet if you actually search "Rand Paul plagiarism" the newest story to appear is from November 13, about six weeks ago, and there's been tons of other news about Rand since then. Perhaps I don't understand Google's methods, but this suggests to me that somebody is paying one of these search engine optimization (SEO) companies to push "plagiarism" up the list in the recommended searches bar.
If that's what's happening, it's certainly no surprise, no great revelation, but I found it interesting. Has anybody else noticed this? Or perhaps similar activity relating to another person or organization in the liberty movement?
