Bread Boxes and Bad Search Results

I was looking for a bread box to buy. I looked on Amazon but nothing that really stood out as cool. So I Googled for them.

I got this result:

Wow, a whole site just for bread boxes!

But wait…

The site is the worst kind of website in the world.

There is content on it, but it’s all bullshit content. Just a few things copy and pasted from elsewhere. Just barely good enough to seem like a real site. And everything is lathered in affiliate links. I think affiliate programs are great, but not when you’re squatting on a good domain name with bullshit content and ruining my search results.
