I belive that the terms "Google juice" and "Google bombing" cannot be
used interchangeably and I will prove that they in fact refer to two
disticntly different things.
First off, since both of these terms begin with the word "Google", a
word which finds it's source in the mathematical term "googol". Googol
refers to 10^100, or more generally, an extremely large number.
Next, we should examine the term "bombing" This word literally means
"to bomb", where "bomb" is derived from "bombe", an archaic term for a
device used to break enigma codes. So obviously the term "Google
bombing" means "to break an extremely large number of enigma codes".
"Juice", on the other hand is defined by the 1913 Webster's Revised
Unabridged Dictionary as:
Juice \Juice\ (j[=u]s), n. [OE. juse, F. jus broth, gravy,
juice, L. jus; akin to Skr. y[=u]sha.]
The characteristic fluid of any vegetable or animal
substance; the sap or part which can be expressed from fruit,
etc.; the fluid part which separates from meat in cooking.
This means that the term "Google juice" refers to instead "The fluids of
an extreme number of plants and animals"
Now, obviuosly these terms are not synonyms by any stretch of the
