[linux-elitists] So...who's been google-hacking?

I completely fail to understand why you would want to _give_
your site's Google Juice _away_ to...let's just say, "example.com"
just so that example.com comes up when somebody searches for some
random phrase.

  Do a search for "cheese-spreading booty mongers"!  Go on, do it!
  Oh.  No, b-o-o-t-y.  See!  See!  Example.com!  Pretty fucking
  funny!  Get it?  Get it?

Ha ha.  We get it.  Dumb asses.

Look, some guy who paid $7.95 in perfectly good money for the domain
"microcontentnews.com" said that this stunt was "brilliant" two
years ago.


What does that say to you?  Right.  It's dumb.  You'll be just as
embarassed about this as about the web community forum you wrote
in the mid-90s, or that Mac OS X box, or the business card with the
title "Business Development Shaman", or that subscription to _Wired_.

If you want to help Google users understand a company, please
learn from the example of people who had something to say about
McDonald's, Home Depot, or Starving Students Movers.  Or SCO.

Put up a site, get people to link to your site with the name of
the company as the link text, and sit there in the number 2 or 3
spot calmly flipping the company the bird in your Description:.
It's like being able to put your letter to the editor about them
across from their full-page ad in every magazine in the world,
for nothing.  How many times do I have to explain this to you people?

Rule 1: Don't link to bad companies.

Rule 2: Write factual, informative pages about bad companies,
when you have facts about them you would like to share.

Rule 3: Link to the pages you wrote according to Rule 2, and get
others to do likewise.
