The coolest person (orang paling keren) NOT!

I am really disturbed with current thread on "orang paling keren" (the coolest person?). Basically, it came up as a challenge to trick search engine to put pages (from Multi Level Marketing - MLM - users) at the top page of Google and Yahoo. (If you want to find out more about this, check my page on "orang paling keren" but it's in Bahasa Indonesia. And here is a serious article about "paling keren")

According to Priyadi, the coolest person is Chewbacca. I think NOT! He is not "orang paling keren", because he is not "orang" (human). On the other hand, he is closer to orang utan. ha ha ha. In any case, he is not the coolest person. (By the way, if you don't get it, this post and link is to generate traffic and increase Priyadi's rank.)

One interesting thing I found is that the search results from Google and Yahoo differ greatly. Go crazy about it ... On Yahoo's, Priyadi's page is number one (which is the correct thing to do). Does that mean Google's algorithm is easily fooled by MLM users?

Pak Budi, and others, google for the term 'googlebomb', you'll find more information about fooling Google's ranking.

For similar competition, google for 'nigritude ultramarine'.

Related to MLM potentially doing some trickeries, I don't think they can easily fool Google ranking. If it's only for useless phrase like 'orang paling keren', I won't really care. But if I search for some real information like 'Pramuka Indonesia' and the MLM link came up (non-ads) on top, then I will report it to Google and they'll be banned (it has happened before).

HTH.

Namanya juga Google, 'orang keren' sering memanfaatkan cara apa saja agar bisa nongol di Google.

walah bung Budi,
anda sgitu antinya ya dengan kontes "orang paling keren"

padahal kontes ini hanya untuk having fun saja kok =), melatih ilmu SEO yang udah didapat.


kalo ada yang sampai merasa "terganggu" dengan adanya kontes ini .. berarti paling tidak itu sudah merupakan suatu bentuk "perhatian". terima kasih ^_^

oyaa, saya adalah seorang Asian Brainer. tp saya masuk situ BUKAN untuk menjadi seorang "MLM user" lho. Karena disitu memang bukan tempatnya.

terima kasih sekali lagi.
