The SEO War On Terror

April 14th, 2009 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

I try to keep this blog apolitical, but this is just too funny and sureally on-topic to pass up. According to The Register, the British Office of Security and Counter-Terrorism (OSCT) “plans to train government-approved groups in search engine optimisation techniques” in order to flood the internet” with propaganda.

Perhaps this is just a stimulus package for SEO consultancies. Or perhaps I vastly underestimate the power of information warfare. In any case, I was amused, and I thought it was the right thing to share.

    Call me Agent Double-Oh SEO. I have a license to Google. The bad jokes are limitless!

    And, while OSCT is enlisting cyber-infantry for a future propaganda war, 4Chan appears to be training the precision marching team.

    Of course, if the OSCT is hiring 4Chan to hack Al-Qaeda, then things could get interesting.

    Hmm, the previous comment does support my “stimulus package for SEO” theory…

    It seem the internet have been main media to build personal image. Many politicians take advantage to the media.
