Googlebombs Deactivated

Googlebombs have been around for quite a while. A year ago, Google acknowledged their presence yet mentioned they'll just do nothing about it. Yesterday, however, Google announced the introduction of a new algorithm to its search engine which "minimizes the impact of many Googlebombs." The trick is to show web pages that talk about the particular Googlebomb searched for instead of returning the site that was subject to a Googlebomb attack. Googlebombs look like they will finally be deactivated.
