Santorum Mailbag

The emails just keep coming, so I'm just going to keep posting them.
When I visited your main page today, there was a big banner ad that said. Vote Rick Stanorum for 2011.
How does an ad like this get on your site.

Also, I noticed that your site is no longer number one in google searches. Did he buy his way to the top?
Google's search algorithm has evolved since this site started. As Google learns more about each of us as individuals, it actually has the (creepy?) power to give us individualized search results. For example, when I Google Santorum, our site comes up first. Others will see it as low as number five. As long as we're among the top results, however, I'm not too worried about it.

As for the ad thing, that's hilarious! I saw a Rick Perry ad on here the other day, and was amused, but that's way better. I think it's safe to assume that the readers of Spreading Santorum aren't likely to vote for old Rick.

Hi there,

Just some articles about your blog on the biggest news sites in Belgium, The Netherlands & France. Thought you might like it.
Keep up the good work! ;)

Wim
This writer sent in a lot of links, most of which aren't actually in English. I thought I'd share this one from Belgium with you, though, because according to Wim, it literally translates to "Santorum is Unpleasant By-Product of Sex."


For real.

Tore down as many of the fcuker's posters I could find,
a 'decorated' / littered my roof top deck with them.

Thanks for speaking for us, Dan.

That. Is. Awesome.

On the third of January, after the caucus results came in, in utter
disgust and shock, I shouted "FUCK SANTORUM" aloud in dismay at Iowa
voters. Now, what happens next is 100% true and I am not embellishing
in the slightest:

Immediately after my outburst, my dog, who was sitting a few feet away
from me, begins to loudly projectile diarrhea all over my bedroom. It
was vile, disgusting, and frothy to the max.

Which leads me to suspect: simply saying his name summons him, like a
demon or evil spirit.

Additionally, I think Iowegians finally made a butter sculpture of
Santorum. They put a stick of butter in a microwave for a minute.
I'm really glad that happened, but also glad it did not happen to my dog.

YOU FOLKS R ASSHOLES....YOU R FECAL MATTER...RICK SANTORUM FOR PRESIDENT.....EAT SHIT
Christmas!


Hi Dan, my name is Matt [redacted], I graduated from Carmel Catholic High School in Mundelein, IL in 2002. I have attended Catholic school my whole life, and was shocked and embarrassed to discover that Rick Santorum graduated from Carmel in 1976. Like the majority of Catholics, I find his views repugnant, and started a facebook group "Carmel Catholic Alumni Against Rick Santorum." I started by inviting a few of my friends, and now Alumni from the 60's and 70's are joining. I know a lot of alumni read your column and website, would you be able to let them know about our group so we can make sure that everyone knows that Santorum does not speak for us? His association with the school has left a stain that may never wash out.
Hear that, Carmel Catholic High School alumni? Show your disdain for santorum by joining this facebook group!

Also, I'm still Jocelyn, not Dan.

  1. Careful, there... I believe the rules from Google AdSense explicitly prohibit you from encouraging visitors to click ads on your site. You can lose your ad privileges entirely. I don't think you can stop visitors from encouraging the same.

  2. I just googled santorum and this is the number 2 result. It needs to be number one again!

  3. Actually the ads that appear on this site seem to be from remarketing campaigns on AdSense. What that means is that if you visit a website that purchased this type of package from google, as you browse to totally unrelated sites (news blogs, shopping sites, spreadingsantorum, etc.) you see ads for the company whose page you previously visited.

    In other words, the Santorum campaign bought a remarketing campaign from Google and the person who saw the Santorum 2012 ad had visited the Santorum 2012 page at some point.

  4. Tt- There is definitely some of that, but I never visited Rick Perry's website and have definitely seen his ad here, so perhaps it's a combination. I'm not in charge of that stuff.

  5. Ah. Then I have no more answers :)

    Great site by the way, keep up the good work!

  6. Dan is correct in saying that Google search has become more sophisticated, and takes into consideration many personal factors before presenting its results, from prior searches, location, contacts, etc.

    HOWEVER, if you know how to find it, you can get a raw search without Google's personal assistance.

    On the Google search page, go to the far left column. At the very bottom click where it says "More Search Tools" and then click Verbatim.

    Verbatim strips away all of the help and gives you the raw result. When I click that, spreadingsantorum.com cums up first, followed by the Wiki explanation of neologism with Dan's site as its example.

    SO this is STILL number one, and the Santorum campaign is paying to get their ad in the box above all the raw results. They are paying with every search.

  7. Can I point out that when I was growing up, people who went to Carmel Catholic High School were nicknamed "Fudgies"? (Caramel Fudge was one of the big flavors back then...)

    Given what Santorum "means" I found it rather amusing to find out he was a Fudgie.
