Hi All

I hope the mods will let this one will stay up, it got me over the Monday morning blues, still chuckling now. PR6 listed in Dmoz…



There's hope for us all :)

I'm hoping that that's a joke site... Somebody tell me that it is... please...

You know, I have clients that want sites like that ;)

And seem very disappointed when I refuse to add all the flashing, scrolling things that they want!

hehe....you pitch them:

You: "Yeh, it will be optimised for search engines (meaning higher ranking for highly targetted phrase), and the navigation and layout will be customised (to optimise sales conversions) and all content will be unique and written by a team of highly trained monkeys...>"

Client: "But will it have the rotating email address icon?"

Hey edit_g

I'm afraid not I think he may just be on to a winner :(((

No cloaking, keyword stuffing, just plain old home page design – we all should have seen this retro step coming but were too busy doing the ostrich...

Has anyone checked his back links – have to be awesome!

Rich :)

"The best home page on the web. Have me design a web page for you"

wonderful stuff. I did'nt think they still made bright colourful stuff like that....

The high PR comes from "mama" Geocities. And he has only a handfull of backlinks. But how on Earth did it get into the Google directory?

After extensive research and a brew, I can reveal that the weighting from being classified by DMOZ under

web design and development association

gives an automatic Google PR factor of 7 - unfortunately (or fortunately) Jason has been penalised 1 point and is currently in prison for web cruelty.

That is extremely sad that an editor would allow that site in that category!
