Birthday of the day: Apple is 29 today, and Gmail is 1.

Apparently, the WordPress guys have been spamming Google, using their (formerly) sky-high page rank and hidden links to raise shady ad revenues. Google Is Not Amused, so you’ll no longer find search results like this one.

Some WP supporters object to calling it spam, but this is disingenuous. “Google bombing” and the like are frequently referred to as search engine spamming; if you don’t want to be called a spammer you shouldn’t behave like one.
