Google Outbids Barack Obama for Obama’s Own Name

Portent Staff Oct 31 2008

I was about to run this morning’s keyword chart on John McCain when I noticed
that Google is outbidding Barack Obama for his own name in AdWords.

The advertisement is for Google Maps Election ’08 Map Gallery and goes to a timeline of Barack Obama’s life.

BTW, if you are ever in this neighborhood be sure to stop by Zippy’s and get a bucket of chili.

Oddly, Google does not give John McCain equal treatment.

Yes, there is a John McCain’s Journey in Google Maps and the ’08 Election Map Gallery features it, but at the time of this writing Google was not bidding on John McCain with a link to his journey.
