After re-writing an algorithim that determines the ranking of subjects submitted to Google, "George W. Bush" is no longer returning at the number one reply when submitting the words, “Miserable Failure”.
A mass link prank had kept Bush at the top of the list for years. Micheal Moore and Jimmy Carter have also been knocked out of the running. Google isn’t telling how it was done just that it is automatic and not 100% perfect.
Google is defusing the Googlebombs because of numerous complaints. It is unclear who the complainant was that wanted to be the top “Miserable Failure”. It is known the White House attempted but miserably failed to resolve the problem in 2006. Source
