Let's Do Something About Saipan Sucks!

The results for a google search for the word "Saipan" almost always produces a certain website very critical of the CNMI. This website is usually in the top 5 results (out of almost 12 million). This website thinks that Saipan, well, for lack of a better word, SUCKS.

Everybody on Saipan knows about this website. I think that sucks. It can be really depressing when the top website about your home says that you suck.

That's not cool.

It might not be cool, but I realize that the webmaster has every right to post whatever he wants online. The Internet is like the Wild West. You can do and say whatever you want and never get in trouble...unless they find out who you are. (I've even heard of people being fired for their blogging activities!)

When they first find out about it, most people that disagree with the website try to make an argument for exposing the webmaster or shutting the website down. Obviously, that hasn't worked.

But that's not how the Internet works. I could create an anonymous website stating that so and so is a big fat lying sack of you know what, and there really isn't much so and so could do about it. Just ask the Purge Princess.

A better way to deal with a website that you don't like is to drown it out. The more the phrase "Saipan Sucks" appears on websites, the less likely the website critical of Saipan will appear at the top of search engine results.

As of this writing, a google search for "Saipan Sucks" produces 33,000 results.

Do you know how easy it would be to google bomb somebody with the term Saipan Sucks? All you have to do is to put the phrase "Saipan Sucks" into one of your blog posts or on your website template and then link it to a website OTHER THAN THE ONE CRITICAL OF SAIPAN.

WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT ADD A LINK TO SAIPAN SUCKS!!!

As time goes on and as more websites publish the phrase "Saipan Sucks" linked to OTHER websites, those websites will replace the website critical of Saipan at the top of search engine results.

How do you like them apples? Do they give you gastrointestinal dysentery?

i totally agree with what you have to say about "saipan sucks" some or so of it may be true, but for reals... i don't want to have to research and see that site as one of the top sites to visit.

as for someone getting fired for blogging.. it does happen.. a sample is Dooce,
a site by Heather Armstrong, a former web designer.

Err, yes. Angelo knows about the reality of getting fired for blogging. He knows it very, very well, in fact.

Trust me, I know that people have been fired for blogging...Heather Armstrong was just the first person to become famous for it...the other famous person is Queen of Sky...but there are others...

Again, thank you very much for your comments. Since we are educating each other, please see:

Please continue to make constructive comments on this or any other website. Since you are sitting in front of a computer screen in West Palm Beach, Florida, though, I was wondering how you became such an expert on Saipan?
