I was reading an old post I wrote about this summer’s Democratic National Convention. The post had a link to bloggerbash2004.com a site that promoted an event which I took part in and to the best of my knowledge Janeane Garafalo did as well, but I was too busy talking to Joe Trippi to notice. :(
Now if you visit the bloggerbash2004.com domain, it will take you to the crapulent Online-Business-Index.com site. I’m not sure why, but I’m going to guess:
- Someone offered to pay the DCCC for the domain and soak up any available search engine linkage, thus raising it’s rank in search engines like Google.
- Same as above but instead of the DCCC doing something slimy, the domain had expired and the person behind the OBI, bought the domain upon expiration.
- Evil h4x0r5 are somehow involved.
I think it’s option 1. I am happy to be wrong. I Anyone know for sure?
PS: I’m using ‘nofollow‘ to link to these sites, so no rank will flow from this post.
