    Amusing, but aren't the links at the bottom exactly what they're protesting about?

    Or am I out to lunch once again...

    The Site is a parody

    Guys the site is a parody... it was because of a thread on Search Guild .. I tried to make an assocation of search engine professionals, however many of the SEO'ers would not agree to Google's guidelines

    I made the site in protest as a joke... I didn't realize Clickz would be doing stories and 1/2 the SEO community would be visiting the site.

    Regarding the links on the bottom.. I put them there because when I first made the site the webmasters there sent me an e-mail in support. and I was pretty liberal at letting them there because I was sort of pissed off when it happened.... so I listed them there... but I see your point they are 'unrelated' as far as the site's theme goes.. but they are there for the above reason, again the site was just a funny joke.. nothing more... even though that parody has about 7500 visitors per day I guess I could remove them...

    The reason the pagerank is zero is because the site is about 14 days.. from the quality of links entering into the site from the referrer logs.. I expect it to be PR5 / PR6 or so by next update..

    Thanks for visiting the site

    It's called a 'google bomb' .. in short bloggers and site owners went and linked Bush's profile with the keyword 'failure' ... on the other end, the conservatives went out a linked Michael Moore's site with the keyword 'failure' .. so what you are actually seeing is an online war between the conservatives and liberals...

    It sort of points out the power of anchor text....

    Bush is #1 for the term "failure", on MSN, Yahoo & Google either.

    The problem is that it isn't a competitive keyword

    Results 1 - 10 of about 77,000,000 for failure

    77 million results? Not Competitive? Granted I am pretty sure not many of those sites are SEO'ed for that exact keyword, however the sheer number of results make it competitive. It's like trying to get the keyword 'the' ...

    I deem it the largest Google Bomb ever...
