(KSL News) -- Type the word "failure" or "miserable failure" into search engine Google, and you could be surprised what comes up.

The top result? President Bush's White House biography.

Google blames it on a practice called "google bombing," in which pranksters use hyperlinks to take advantage of the search engine's otherwise unbaised method for ranking pages.

A similar prank was pulled on anti-Bush filmmaker Michael Moore's website.

To see this result, go to www.google.com, type in "Miserable Failure" and hit Search.
