Don't wait to be hit by one to realize what it means, like I did.
Anderson Cooper recently interviewed me on my experience with a Google bomb. Like many of you reading this, I didn't know what one was. Watch here.
It nearly destroyed me! Especially in today's troubling times, people out of work, the competitiveness of jobs, businesses, etc - people are stooping to all levels to survive financially. Even if it means ruining others with a few keystrokes!
