A Google bomb or Googlewash(also referred to as a 'link bomb') is Internet slang for a certain kind of attempt to influence the ranking (called PageRank) of a given page in results returned by the Google search engine.This can have political reasons and discredits a person, or is done for fun as part of a SEO (Search Engine Optimization) challenge.Because of the way that Google's algorithm works, a page will be ranked higher if the sites that link to that page use consistent anchor text. A Google bomb is created if many sites link to the page in this manner.Other search engines use similar techniques to rank results, so Yahoo!, AltaVista, and HotBot are also affected by Google bombs.
