    Sounds like offline advertising done be a 12 year old kid....although he is on the right track with offering such a service, I don't exactly know if it is trustworthy.

    I know what you mean, does anybody actually visit a site they see scrawled on the toilet door? I very much doubt I would.

    Not sure if you want your url posted in public toilets :)

    Surely I won't.

    Seriously... I would be worried about the URL owner getting cited for the vandalism. Might as well give out your full name and phone number while you're at it!

    Who knows, it could actually work. I for one admit spending time reading bathroom graffiti while on the crapper. Who doesn't? Gotta take your mind off on something :D

    I would imagine you would need a catchy URL and slogan beside it or something that people could remember.

    This is a smart idea for adult-content-related websites. For things like marketing blogs, the people who go to the sites aren't likely to pay attention to the bathroom walls, and are even less likely to visit the links as well. But it's a unique idea that I thought of a year ago, but scrapped it quickly because of 1) the gas wasted, and 2) the illegality.

    Sounds like he will be spending more time being a photographer and uploading photos than writing on walls.

    Let us know how you go.

    I heard about getting the urinal plastic guards made up with your logo and slogan as some kind of gorilla marketing campaign once but I guess this is just the poor man's version of this lol.
