2020 presidential hopeful may have to hire some SEO experts quick
2020 hopeful Joe Biden may need to hire some new SEO experts.
On the homepage tag line is “Joe Biden for President 2020,” but if you delve a little deeper, you’ll see it’s promoting something else.
JoeBiden.info is a parody site created by a self-described “closest to a libertarian” man, who claims that actual Biden supporters fall for the anti-Biden site.
On the homepage, the parody site announces:
“Uncle Joe is back and ready to take a hands-on approach to America’s problems!”
“Joe Biden has a good feel for the American people and knows exactly what they really want deep down.
“He’s happy to open up and reveal himself to voters and will give a pounding to anybody who gets in his way!”
Following a series of photos and videos depicting Biden acting a bit “creepy,” the site goes on to show some quotes from the former Vice Presdient.
This is one little nugget about his former running mate:
“I promise you, the president has a big stick.”
Then there is the one about Barack Obama back in 2007:
“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
The about sections lists “Joe’s Legislative Accomplishments.”
AGAINST Gay Marriage: In 1996, Senator Joe Biden voted for the Defense of Marriage Act which defined marriage as between a man and a woman. This law also prevented states from recognizing same-sex marriages.
FOR Mass Incarceration: Senator Joe Biden authored and voted for the Violent Crime Control, and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 which initiated the “3 Strikes and You’re Out” policy which has resulted in many people spending life sentences in jail for minor crimes. He nicknamed it the “Biden Bill.”
AGAINST Abortion Rights: In 1982, Senator Joe Biden initially voted for a constitutional amendment which would have allowed states to overturn Roe v. Wade – the Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion.
FOR Iraq War: Senator Joe Biden, who at the time was chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, voted for the resolution to authorize military involvement in Iraq. The Iraq war resulted in the death of 4,424 US military members and cost taxpayers $2.4 trillion.

But as reported by CNBC, the Biden parody site is now outranking Biden’s real campaign site.
This alone should have his campaign managers in a state of panic.
While not all searches for Biden will result in JoeBiden.info, searches for “Biden 2020 website” and “Joe Biden info” still do.
If you search for “Joe Biden website,” it will pull up CNBC’s report first.
Then the parody site will be second.
“Biden 2020” pulls up the parody site second, following “Joe Biden 2020 presidential campaign” Wikipedia entry.
According to a disclaimer on the site, it’s not funded by any “candidate, committee, organization, or PAC.
It appears to be the work of one man, who insists he put the site up as a stunt just before Biden announced his 2020 run.
Will Google act?
AOC’s parody account, which has thousands of followers and even marked as “parody,” was swiftly deleted by Twitter who too similar to socialist congresswoman’ official account.
