    I was surfing tonight and found this site.

    This guy must have thought this was SEO back in 1998 and never changed.

    I laughed and had to share it with you guys and gals thinking you'd get a laugh out of it. Some of us work hard and need a good laugh now and then :)

    He's been aggressively ugly for 12 years, so Google has him grandfathered in.

    Check out this site. It's so retro but look at the PR and Alexa. Makes me want to weep.

    Trust me mate the owner is more familiar with SEO and Viral Marketing than you think. This site was a huge hit back in 2008 it went viral and a lot of news sources wrote articles on it.If i remember correctly it was also featured on places like cracked.com.

    Just check:
    And you will see what Im talking about.

    Countless organic backlinks to this site. Not bad if you ask me. Wise way to go about it; however, I doubt that was the intention of this site.
