Top Ten Ways to Avoid Being Noticed on the Web

In light of the glut of truly atrocious websites on the internet, it seems that many people are working much too hard to avoid being noticed. To save everyone some time and effort, I’ve decided to help by listing the top ten ways to fly under the radar in cyberspace. Here they are:

#5. Simply publish someone else’s stuff on your site.

#4. Put all your content on one page and then leave it untouched.

#3. Never publish anything that people might want or need to know.

#2. Never tell anyone about your website, especially via social media.

#1.  Here it is! The number-one way to avoid being noticed on the web:

  1. I love number 5!!!! Almost spit out my coffee there for a minute.
