According to my extensive research they only update the suggested search terms when there is some reason to believe people got a successful answer to their question, so you would need to hit the same site with some consistency.

(Fake data!)

No, I dunno. Seems like a little bit of a bank shot? Why not just pay Russians to plant forum posts or whatever?

I didn't say it was the only way, but you wouldn't even need someone to click a link (let alone read a forum post) to have them see it.

I'd be shocked if they didn't guard against this, mostly because you'd think people already tried it.

Oh, Christ, don't mention hundert\wasser. His personal secretary was for many years the son of an extremely prominent Austrian Nazi, who undertook the job as a form of expiation.

I love the idea that working for Hundertwasser was bad enough that it might be a form of expiation of the Third Reich. It might even be true; architects who think they're God are a clich├ę.

on the OP, I don't think you can do this to Google but I think it might be possible with Twitter. during one of the waves of Tory paedo scandal, their autocomplete kept suggesting the suspect's name.

I recall that back in the early days of google, some folks pranked their aspiring writer friend by making a bunch of pages with phrase "no talent hack", and linking to his personal web site. So for a while if you googled "no talent hack" he was the first hit.

Not exactly what you're talking about, but in the same spirit.

Hundertwasser designed a flag for New Zealand! And it got to the long list as an actual official replacement but then the Hundertwasser Estate got mad because it was a bit of weird rip-off and not the real thing.
