Yes, noticed that to on Google Trends. Earlier this year there was a positive Googlebom "cheerful achievement" which pointed to Obama to.

[put at-character here]TOMHTML, don't know if this is new but maybe you know this? Wheny when you search for "trou du cul du web" (Google Translate: asshole of the web) with Google.fr the website of the French president shows up first.

Too bad they didn't write the query in the press release :)

Also, Zorgbloob tweeted it on July 22 (http://twitter.com/Zorgloob/status/2779376843), but no mention on zorbloog.fr.

The way French President has been Google Bombed seems really good.
It seems there are a lot of spam websites who have been created, with links to president's website. Then, when the Google Bomb started to work, all those spam sites redirected (HTTP 301) to president's site. Google keeps an history of the content of the links, but not the links themselves.
So there is NO way to find back which sites were putting links to President's website or their content.
