    Infomercial Websites with #s in the URL
    You know these products that are constantly advertised on either infomercials or 30-second spots with names like makemoremoneynow80.com or 41success.com?

    Why do they have numbers in the URL?

    Is it for tracking purposes, or is it that they just can't come up with a unique name so they throw some #s in there.

    I just don't see how someone could trust a website with a name like that.

    Definately for tracking purposes. The numbers are different from market to market to gauge response. God, those commercials are extremely annoying!

    And while i'm at it, whoever coined the term "infomercial" is a master of deception. Obviously there's no "info" provided....other than a hard sales pitch.

    I thought you meant phone numbers as URLs
    I have seen that too. The phone number to call is (212) 555-1212 and then the url is: www.2125551212.com

    Pretty funny actually. I think they are hoping you still might call even if you take the url down. Not sure. Maybe one point for all contacts.

    It is tough to get good urls these days.
