Presidential Search 2008

Pretty interesting observation over on techPresident about which candidates are buying search keywords.

Summarizing from his analysis, only 5 of the 17 candidates have bought search keywords for their own names, and none of them have bought keywords that match hot topics like “war in iraq” and “global warming.”

Just to test, I did my own search for “Sam Brownback” and got this sponsored result:

Mitt Romney in 2008
Strong. New. Leadership.
Help Build a New American Dream

Looks like someone is paying attention!
