    No. Pagerank is not about the content, it is about the links. Check the incoming links. Lots of them and many pretty high profile.

    But what keywords does this rank high in? Page rank on its own is nothing, which is why people should not be trying to buy it.

    But thanks for the site, it made me laugh.

    I can't believe how mesmerizing (sp?) their site is. I must have spent hours just staring at their first page. A funny thing though, after looking at the site for a while every time the phone rang I quacked like a duck.

    Maybe their content is subliminal

    That thing's been around for years. I'd forgotten about it. Thanks for reminding me.

    WTF? Just goes to show that you don't need to work your butt off on a website to get ranked highly by Google.

    Wow. I've disabled Flash so the PR5 pertains to links only as I can see no content.

    That page is 10x harder to come up with than most affiliate sites i see. And again, people like it, they link to it - that is all what counts in pagerank.

    Pretty clever! Make a catchy good-for-nothing page that Google and DMOZ love and place your link as a comment.

    But, as Zoe2 spotted, none of us had bothered to look there. So the whole marketing effort depends on people doing what he did--not only looking at the code, but telling what they saw.

    I'd think that'd be quite a limiting factor for the viral-marketing effect. Most people on more general forums probably don't have a clue about things like that.

    Huh?

    Google doesn't love it, people love it. The site is something like 4 years old. How helpful is it to have a link in the comments? Not much. Remember, this has a nice pagerank not a nice ranking on any words.

    And how much much does a comment tag url help you?

    http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...footstick.com/

    Nothing in google...

    Probably not much, but does it pass PR???

    15FootStick does have decent PR (add the www. to see it--and their links, too )--but since the ZomboCom comment mention doesn't use URL format (there's no "http://") it wouldn't be considered a "link" so I doubt it would contribute anything, SE-wise.
