Great URLs Featuring Terrible Websites


Once upon a time, when the internet just began, people were buying every URL possible that had a chance of having some SEO significance and most of all, could make money by selling it to someone who’s actually interested in doing something with it. The result? Some incredible URL’s that could make wonderful sites, but are actually among the worse you’ll find on the web.

Cats.com

Catscom e1348191577872 9 Great URLs Featuring Terrible Websites

Instead of a website filled with Cat Galleries and actualy useful information, the first thing you notice is the ‘for sale’ message at the top of your screen.

Friends.com

friendscom e1348191687725 9 Great URLs Featuring Terrible Websites

A site that has the word friend in every category, but is mosly about links to other places and hardly has any useful content except for the home page picture.

Politics.com

Somewhat of a news aggregator, with links to a million other sites. No reason to stay on, no reason to come back for a visit. It hasn’t been updated since April 23, 2010.

Clothing.com

There’s no actual site. You simply get directed to Michelle’s fashion for “every-body”, instead of some awesome fashion encylopedia or something similar.

Internet.com

Another dull and disappointing feed aggregator.

News.com

Not that linking to Cnet’s gadget site is that bad, but it’s probably not one someone is looking for when pressing news.com.

Computer.com

The ugliest and most annoying thing on the internet is stumbling upon a site like this.

Fun.com

A site couldn’t be any less fun than this.

Sad.com

For sale, if you’re interested.

  1. Hi, I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this
    post was cool. I don’t know who you are but definitely you are great blogging. Thank you.

  2. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump
    out. Please let me know where you got your design. Wonderful
    Job, Chow!

  3. Greetings from California! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take a look
    when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just
    3G .. Anyhow, awesome site! Thank you so much, a wonderful job!

  4. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much, a wonderful job!
