On Saturday, September 23, 2006, ColbertNation decided to create a Google bomb that would cause colbertnation.com to be in the top ten when somebody searched Google for truth. The idea was to copy and paste the following into every forum discussion on every forum both inside and outside of ColbertNation:

- The Google Bomb is on-going and any Colbert fan is asked to contribute
