View Full Version : Santorum isn't only candidate whose search results go negative

Bad news on the search engine front for the other three candidates:


But Paul is good!

As for Ron Paul, it appears that he had his Google search results under control Wednesday. Everything was either biographical or totally promotional. Somebody on his team knows how to work SEO (search engine optimization)!

I think this is a very important concept which could be leveraged much more heavily. In an ideal world, we could, through effective NEGATIVE SEO efforts, force google to display a full page of negative results on Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, and Obama before anything positive was said.

Perhaps a litte work in the Dark Arts could help magnify this concept...
What could we do to optimize more of "the other three's" +obama's negative results?

How do we keep the santorum's gooey drip alive? The "santorum neologism" wiki is still, to this day, the #2 search result for "santorum" and the urban dictionary of the same is #4, another similar makes it to #6.

What has been done to make that possible?

Google: SANTORUM (http://www.google.com/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=santorum&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8)

Of all 11 pages listed for santorum, only #1 and #3 are positve; the wiki and his campaigns main page. Of the remaining others half are neologism related; the others are santorum-negative political sites. Clearly we are winning the negative online campaign war for web result w/ santorum. I think the negative political type of site are the ones we should focus our efforts on. Nothing wrong with the neologism... I just think we would be more effective at swaying voters by forcing some negative truisms about each opponent to the top.

http://blog.spreadingsantorum.com/ is the site which works to keep the neologism alive. Perhaps study of this site (though foul as it is) would be a good lesson in the dark art of implementing NEGATIVE SEO on candidates.

This article (http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/02/rick-santorums-google-problem-solves-itself/) yesterday falsely claim the neologism issue is no longer true.... But truthfully the article itself made it today to number 5, which is still effectively pushing the "santorum" neologism.

I also think it would be more potent to keep effective and factual rebuttals of santorums platform climbing. We should work to get this page on the top of the santorum search:

The Real Dirt on Slick Rick Santorum
"The most comprehensive review of Santorum's big-government hypocrisy and corruption on the web."

I'm no expert in SEO, but I'd certainly send out emails to web hosts to help them optimize negative imagery if I was told how to do so.

Perhaps we need to first identify NEGATIVE pages we wish to push to the top of each searches list, then focus our efforts on those specific sites ascending.

That nolan chart page on santorum is a perfect 1st NEGATIVE SEO project.

I also think optimizing SEO's for NEGATIVE VIDEO searches is an important element of this dark art.

Here's the wiki on SEO:

Admittedly, It kind of reads like hebrew to me.

Not sure what the origin of this is, but my friend showed me a picture today that is a mosaic of Rick Santorum made up of photos of gay porn. Thought you might enjoy it.

I'm savvy enough to follow what a lot of this means but not how to optimize it myself.
Can someone with the chops simmer this down into a simple method that we could share/transmit to a few trusted individuals and maximize an effort here?
It should be too hard to find marital for it (as far as results we'd find acceptable) considering what the facts actually are on these guys.

and what about duel item searches (as in more than one candidates name at once, or a candidate + a reporter etc), do we have some possibilities in that regard?

Working is going on in getting positive Paul trends on Twitter, as such I'd like to renew my question about SEO and expand it to trending.
If anyone has skill to help us polish this effort that would be great. Also if anyone would point me in the right direction or break it down for me I'm willing to spend the time to spearhead things myself I just need to get the know how squared away. Can someone lend me a hand with this?

Cheers :)

I know that I have seen some good SEO posts from people with real knowledge here. We need to grow this skill.
