✈ ▌▌Plane Flying into Two Buildings on Google Trends List? Who put it there, and how the hell do they game Google Trends?


✈ ▌▌

That's the shocking symbol that I just saw on Google Trends list today -- Tuesday, January 6, 208 at 12:52 pm Eastern Time zone -- in the number 2 position on Google Trends list, listed as volcanic.

So who are these people that game Google like that?

And how do they do it?

I'll bet you Google will get the ✈ ▌▌ symbol down ASAP, but I wonder where the leak is in their system that's allowing offensive stuff like this to get in?

Techcruch talked about thishttp://www.techcrunch.com/2009/01/06/%E2%9C%88-%E2%96%8C%E2%96%8C-unpleasant-google-trends-subversion/

So using simbols can really spike up everything.

Is bluehat useful.

Yeah, I remember Tech Crunch writing about that.

And yes, I find the arrows I use on WatchFreeEpisodes.com to be helpful in getting my posts higher click-thru rates in Google's SERPs.

But the stars I used on the other posts didn't work -- Google strips those out.
