Re: “Masters of their domain

Hehe, I just registered a Chicago "Occupy" web site a few weeks ago --
http://www.OccupyParkshore.com although this is real estate related to promote our building. I'm afraid to put a discussion area on it though in case people start posting complaints instead of taking them to the board meetings :-)

IMHO, if the OccupiedChicagoTribune people can get away with this it sets a very bad precedent as having those keywords in the domain can for all practical purposes really draw traffic away from the legitimate site.

Say for example I am searching for a quote I read in the Chicago Tribune from CPS CEO Brizard --
https://www.google.com/search?q=Chicago+Tr…
The first hit is actually the "Occupied" site! It just took me a minute to find an example like this. They are really using search engine algorithms to steal traffic from Chicago Tribune.
