Poor Bush: Websites Mocking W. Rank Higher Than His Own Presidential Library Site

Last December, the Bush Library foundation paid a cybersquatter $35,000 for the rights to the web domain name www.GeorgeWBushLibrary.com. A web development company originally paid less than $10 for the rights to the site. However, since the purchase, the library's website is having trouble getting noticed on internet search engines:

The Web site for George W. Bush's presidential library foundation -- GeorgeWBushLibrary .com -- is falling behind in online search results for "Bush library."

The guy who's beating him: his own dad. Even pages mocking the former president rank higher.

Danny Sullivan, editor in chief of Search Engine Land, an industry blog said the site is "below average" for building web traffic and "probably failing" in efforts to raise money because of its low ranking.
