OK, so umm … if you’re not reading WebUrbanist, you’re missing out:
Oh, and here’s me on on the members page of MBL. I’m standing on a 40-ton slap of concrete suspended in mid-air¬ at the Burning Man festival¬ … I think about 3 or 4 years ago. No, I’m not wearing a shirt. But no, I am also not naked. Check here for some more amazing photos of Black Rock City.
Technorati, the definitive blog-ranking website in the world, has done the unthinkable and ranked AllSux.com the number one blog in the world!
OK OK, so to be fair, Technorati is bugged and appears to be rating EVERY blog number 1. So, take this opportunity, take a screenshot, and make your own post about it!
This site rox the sux, which, according to the Urban Dictionary¬ means it “excells in that which is undesireable” and “contains undesireable characteristics.” It is also “believed to have undesireable origins.” I think this fits all of the above.
Certainly this blog is really good at being bad – some posts are so confusing even I don’t know what I’m talking about. It also contains¬ flaws left and right¬ – just look around at the haphazard and ever-growing categories and terrible design!¬ Worst of all,¬ the only reason I started this site was because I realized that the domain wasn’t taken and I have a 6-letter-domain fetish. Yet here it is, with regular readers and high ranks all around. How crazy is that? Uhh, thanks!
With buzz in the air about a Google PageRank update in the works, now is the time to get some incoming links and boost your PR! It’s really pretty simple: write a post (100+ words) linking to Allsux.com and to one specific post you think is particularly terrible (or awesome). Leave a comment on this post. It will be moderated, so just specify ‘private’ if you don’t want it to show.
In return, I will write a post linking back to everyone who reviews this site with a short blurb about the site and its content. Bonus: it’s a fair bet (based on traffic, such as the recent 16,000+ hits from the Fark main page) that this site is actually PR5 in disguise, it just doesn’t show yet because we are pre-update. So, you’ve got a PR4 or maybe even a PR5 link – just for writing your mind! Don’t like the site? Feel free to trash it. Not sure where to start? Here is a handful of some of our most viewed and controversial posts.
Extra extra bonus: One lucky winner will get a second free blogroll link from a site that already has PR5 showing on it. This will go to the person with the most creative, interesting or funny post – whether or not it trashes or praises this site!
Oh, wait, no it doesn’t. So why would I write a headline like “StumbleUpon Sucks?” Well, to be honest, I wanted to outrank the idiot who actually thinks that and is sometimes ranked #1 on Google searches for that phrase! UPDATE: this page is now ranked third on Google for StumbleUpon sucks’ – thanks to the power of you Stumblers! Heading for number 1!
In point of fact, StumbleUpon does not suck at all. It is a great tool both for meeting interesting people and for finding amazingly interesting websites. Frankly, I have discovered more interesting graphic design, political commentary and other off-beat sites through StumbleUpon than through many other sucky social news, networking and bookmarking sites.
Why should you believe me? Well, they don’t pay me to say this, so that’s a start. Just download the toolbar and try it yourself. Set some random keywords about stuff you like and come back here and tell me you don’t like it! If you DO like it you might want to link back to this post so it outranks that other one.

There are many websites that suck, but fortunately there are always other websites kind enough to compile these into neat and ordered lists of the worst websites in the world – thus giving great PR to the websites that deserve it least! There are also websites that are terrible on purpose as a way to demonstrate just how bad a website really can be. You can even read up on how to intentionally create your own terrible website. Of course, you are already on the worst website of all time.
