    The Ugliest Website In The World
    Might make an interesting/cute/stupid site - but I don't even pretend to have time to develop it. It renews at eNom in about 6 weeks - I put it here rather than just let it go - because it may pique someone's interest.

    theugliestwebsiteintheworld.com

    Best offer? or what have you?

    I don't know but I just had to smile with this one.

    Just tickled my funny bone with that name.

    It could be a fun one to develop but yeah, I let one website go a few weeks ago too. Just not enuf time....

    ...or build a directory of site building services, which could also include hosting (affiliates?), graphic designers, software, etc...

    Or, use the name as a parody to just draw traffic -- then provide a nicely made, beautiful website on whatever subject/topic/niche.

    Oops - Sorry
    Oops, sorry. Someone gave me an idea that will only take a few minutes to implement. So I'll be renewing this for one more year and give it a shot.

    There are a lot of "ugly" theme products out there - so an ugly product/sales page will be in the offing.

    That site proves my theory that no matter how crappy, useless, and without content a website is, Google will give it a good, even great PR because.....

    1) Been around for a while, since 2001

    and

    2) A lot of other sites link to it, 227 sites in this case

    Nothing more

    If you list a site like that, make sure you provide a warning as to flashing content.

    There was a segment on some news show the other day about ugly people, and an artist who for a price would create an uglied down portrait of you. Some of them reminded me of those before and after pictures of people on meth. The guy has more business than he can keep up with.
    But what a niche. I think somehow people are drawn to "ugly" because it makes them feel superior...

    It so ugly its cute. Why not keep it? All you need is a bit of publicity. Why not contact the producers of Ugly Betty and see if you can get an interview and maybe run an exclusive about the show?? A contest for the ugliest pet , the ugliest couch, the ugliest house...the possibilities are endless.

    Terri, those are great ideas. It's true it could be so funny and a nice twist to the unexpected. People need humor these days especially when things are bad. I love the idea!

    It reminds me that I have to do something with the "last website in the world" which I believe is the final one if you sort them all alphabetically.

    If you were looking for REALLY ugly, you might consider making it black with white text, and adding animated GIFs of flames.

    Yeah but that sounds like half the pages on Myspace!
