Worst Company Website URLs

Tip of the hat to Texas in Africa for this one.  It seems that companies, businesses and others are not always as careful as they need to be in creating the URLs for their websites.  The basic problem is that there is no spacing between words with web addresses.  So, a URL that is fine with said spaces can take on a different look when the words are run together. Independent Sources lists the 10  worst blunders here.  I’ll list a few to give you the idea. See the whole list at the above link.

Take the website for programmers sharing information called “Experts Exchange.”  Their URL is http://www.expertsexchange.com .

First Cumming Methodist Church actually created their website at http://www.cummingfirst.com/ I would hate to be the one to have to explain that, er, “screw up” to the church.

If you need a therapist, the folks at Therapist Finder can help you:  http://www.therapistfinder.com Wait, that makes it look like you’re tracking something besides therapists, doesn’t it?

The whole list is hilarious.  Yes, boys and girls, proofreading really IS important.

  2. Very, very funny! You’ll notice, though, that Cumming First Methodist Church is moving to a new web address. I guess they finally figured it out.

    The http://www.therapistfinder.com reminds me of the classic SNL Jeopardy Skit with the actor playing Sean Connery.
