Google “Nudging”

When done for nefarious purposes by people trying to get millions to participate, it’s called “Google bombing.” I’m thinking of something a little more gentle, like a few hundred of you doing Google searches for “Halloween origins” and “Halloween history,” then clicking on the links to go to my Real Origins of Halloween essay (or the Spanish version), then coming back to click on any other good Pagan pages you can find on the topic.

Why? Because a number of religious lunatic pages are doing something like this to get their anti-Halloween and anti-Pagan propaganda pages to outrank any honest pages on the topic.

Go ahead. Copy this post and share it in your e-lists or repost it on your own blogs. Let’s “nudge” the Google listings to reflect real history and scholarship instead of fundamentalist lies.
