We started a new category, the “Bad Link Requests”. We are putting the strange or just simply bad requests we get online to give an insight in how stupid some of them are.

I once wrote an article right here on State of Search explaining what linkbuilders should NOT be doing when addressing a website like State of Search. And guess what this linkbuilder thought when he read that: “that’s a page I want my link on!”. Ehm no, you clearly haven’t read the article… So here’s the tip: make sure you know what page you are asking a link for…

Upload your own!

Upload your own weird, funny or interesting request you received and have it featured in this category!

Nice job, you found it!

Now, go try out the 12th one:

Use Google Translate to bypass a paywall...

Ran into a page you can't read because it is blocked or paywalled? Here's a quick trick (doesn't always work, but often does!):

Type the page into Google translate (replace the example with the page you want):

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&u=http://example.com/

How about that!?
