Google Bombing Update

I'd noticed prior to MLK Day that martinlutherking dot org was back up at the top of the Google results for "Martin Luther King." Then I read (somewhere) that Wikipedia had added "nofollow" attributes to all their links, which would eliminate the one incoming link from Wikipedia to the site, which I surmised might knock down its pagerank a bit. Then I read today that Google had tweaked their algorithm to lessen the impact of Google Bombing.

For whatever reason, for today at least, the net effect seems to be that martinlutherking dot org is back down to number five.
