Google bombed?

TFI points out something fascinating in the comments here. Yesterday, Matt Wardman googled the name "Schillings" - the solicitors acting for Alisher Usmanov, and responsible for the temporary closure of bloggerheads, Craig Murray and others. In the first five results, there were three critical of the firm. Today, in the first five results, there are no critical sites; they have been pushed down the rankings.

I'm surprised. The number of links to critical sites has mushroomed in the past few days, so the opposite might have been expected. Googlebombing?

Google Bombing at libel solicitor's rates?

Even a billionaire won't stand that for long.
