As I understand, the "waffle" and "miserable failure" search results are created by a google bomb. Does anyone know how to create these bombs? If so, could we create one that brings up scUM's football homepage whenever someone typed in the word "sucks"?

The July issue of Discover magazine actually has an article in the Emerging Technology section entitled "The Art of Googlebombing". (In the article it mentions typing miserable failure.)

The article does explain how to manipulate the system Google utilizes when displaying pages called PageRank. The short story is that the page needs to have other links on it and carefully chosen words to describe the page you have linked to.

To read the article and see if it is somehting one wants to do, either get the July issue of Discover or wait until the Ausgust issue comes out and visit the Discover mag website. The article in July's issue will then be available for free.
