    I just came across this website today:

    http://www.saskatchewanslargestgaragesale.com/

    and I thought I would start a contest.
    SEMrush
    What is the worst url you have come across. I have some worse ones (with like 50 dashes) that I am saving. The only rule is that it must be a real url.

    I think if anything this thread will show the damage cheap domain costs have caused.

    Look forward to seeing the worst!

    I have to admit though, the length of that url plays into the charm of the Kenny Rogers site. I always find it funny when someone commits so many resources to such an obscure thing.

    Not to get off topic but it reminds me of www.thesandwichclub.com which is decicated purely to a game where the only goal is to smash other peoples sandwiches.

    Thanks for the funny site O.

    Here another funny one:
    expertsexchange.com

    I think it's suppose to read "experts exhange" instead of "expert sex change" :D

    LOL. I never even saw that! I've come across the ee several times but somehow it never struck my mind. :D

    I don't visit that site anyway, you have to pay to get googleable answers.

    BTW: I win.

    To inform you what this url is about, Saskatchewan is a province in Canada. In Canada they like to have "garage sales". This means they like to sell thier used things like couches, refridgerators, baby strollers etc. Usually this is done in the garage so the items do not get rained on. This website is for people to buy or sell thier stuff online instead of walking from house to house looking for bargains. I guess this is the largest garage sale. Although the url is long, I do not think www.saskatchewanslargestgaragesale.com can even begin to be classified into the worst urls ever! Maybe you should find out what you are talking about before trashing a url that describes the website as this one does.

    heythere, he knows what he is talking about and yfs1 is right, it's a pretty bad URL. He wasn't saying at all that something's wrong with the site. We're sure you have a perfectly fine service there and it must be very useful to the people out there.

    We're just listing some strange URL's and I see no reason why you should be worried. You even got a free back link (with crap anchor text because of your bad URL).

    Hi! This is not my site but a very useful one that I use often. I can sell alot of things on it and they sell in no time flat. I am sorry if I sounded mad but out here we think it is very descriptive and it is widely used by the people. We love this site and will continue to in the future.
