Save MLK

One of the examples many presenters use to show how important it is for students to understand that Internet content needs to be critically examined for reliability is a site that run by a white supremicist group that negatively depicts Martin Luther King. As Tom at Tuttle SVC points out, some of those presenters/writers out there don’t understand how Google and other search engines work, because they actually link to this web site. Essentially, the more web pages that link to a specific web site, the high up in the Google ratings it appears. So while these people are actually working against this web site, by linking to it they are promoting it.

So while I may not be a big gun ed-tech blogger, but I’ll join this effort to push other legitmate MLK web sites up in the rankings and hopefully move the less desirable one down. All of us can help do this by participating in a Google Bomb. Essentially, if we place these links in our blog, then we can manipulate the Google rankings. It does seem a little subversive, but it is for a good cause!

UPDATE: Tom has taken this campaign a step further and has asked people linking to the site to stop.
