#5 on google trends
Across the internet people had been spreading the message to search for, “Corey Feldman is hurting”, in an attempt to manipulate Google Trends and have it show up in it’s listing. This method of searching is called a Google Bomb. If enough people search for Corey Feldman is hurting, it will show up.
Well guess what people. As I write this, “Corey Feldman is hurting”, is #2 on the Google Trends list, which proves Google Bombing does work.
People are also asking their friends to Google Bomb the phrase, “Al Sharpton is a racist”. So for Al Sharpton’s name hasn’t cracked the top 10 yet, but I will keep you updated if it does.
Actor Corey Feldman, who as a boy was friends with Jackson, admitted on his Web site that though he’d had a falling out with Jackson in 2001, “I come to you today with great sadness, acknowledging the loss of the greatest entertainer in the history of mankind. For me he was more than that, he was my idol, he was a role model, he was someone to cry to when my childhood was unbearable, he was a brother, he was a dear friend.
“I am trembling and shaking at the moment and it is very hard to type,” Feldman wrote.
“I am filled with tremendous sadness and remorse. All I choose to remember from this point is the good times we shared and what an inspiration he was to me and the rest of the world. Nobody will ever be able to do what Michael Jackson has done in this industry, and he was so close to doing it all again. I am truly, and deeply sorry for all of the heartbroken fans and supporters worldwide. I think I am still in shock. So I must end this now.”
The phrase ‘Rev Al is a racist’ was made #1 on Google Trends for 07-08-09 due to the controversial comments made by Reverend Al Sharpton during Michael Jackson’s Memorial Service.
