Russian writer idaltae tweeted the following:
Whitehouse launches propaganda at troll level pic.twitter.com/S45vJokXN2
Because she didnt say what search term she used to pull up that ad and because we dont live in Russia it took some legwork to verify that this is real.
Specifically, we used Keyword Spy a highly-regarded and widely-used resource in the SEO industry to see if the White House had purchased keywords for Google using the domain name WhiteHouse.gov.
Indeed, we did find the ad using Keyword Spy:
Keyword Spy also told us the keywords which the White House purchased:
Telenor is a huge telecommunications company based in Norway, which provides telecom services in Eastern Europe, and has had a series of legal disputes regarding its sizable ownership stake in Russian and Ukrainian telecoms.
In other words, Telenor Russia is probably a popular Google search term in Russia and Ukraine. And the White House has purchased Google key words to troll Putin.
