It's...puzzling why there are still such bad websites out there online today. It's 2023. Today's bad website looks as though it was made in the late 1990s.
There's just no reason to limp along with such a dinosaur when there are many affordable companies out there which would be glad to help anyone out of the stone age.
If your company is good at what it does, and wants to gain customers - wouldn't you want everyone who finds you online to get a favorable impression and be eager to contact you?
SINNERS! Get yourselves right into a handbasket because you are going straight to you-know-where. See the light green bundle of words at the bottom of the home page? All of those 'keywords'? That is a blatant violation of best practices, and any self-respecting SEO cheater-face would've hidden them in text that matched the background. Not here!
This bad website has keywords RIGHT OUT THERE in an attempt to gain higher placement on search engine results: air compressors air dryers air compressors air air compressors air dryers dryers air compressors air compressors air dryers air dryers air compressors air dryers air compressors air dryers air compressors air dryers air compressors air dryers air compressors air dryers air compressors air dryers air compressors air dryers air compressors air dryers air compressors air dryers air compressors air dryers air compressors air dryers air compressors air dryers
Here at boogersite.com, we receive examples of what people believe are bad websites. Most of the submissions are indeed bad, no matter the intent or services offered by the business with the old/ugly/bad site. Today is one of those examples.
Even if the message is a good one, when it's in a container that features a dizzying background of moving water, light yellow font on blue, and easily corrected misspellings (Sliver instead of Silver) it's hard to decide if there is worth behind the public image.
First off - a company that has an AOL email address makes you wonder if they're still in business.
Secondly, a blurry header image of a coastline doesn't seem to have much to do with plastics or what this company does.
Thirdly, the 1980 mauve color used isn't doing anything to convey the impression that this business is in the current century.
"GNJ FIBER CONSTRUCTION LLC is a company that can be relied upon" says today's bad website. Maybe it is! But you cannot rely on the navigation options on the website to do anything. Products, nothing. Services...nothing. About and Contact both open in new windows. Weird.
There's not very much going on here content-wise, if you can sustain interest to go looking around after the 'design' curiosities.
Aerial Construction - new window, so at least there's consistency...but utterly blank. Underground has content, including a guarantee of "excellance". Fiber Splicing, Mapping & Design, General Maintenance...all blank.
