What do you do when you run out of things to say and are slowly losing traffic? Fake a blog hack! Well, at least that is what John Cow has done.
If you visit the blog, you will be redirected to an image that says the blog has been hacked and that if the hacker doesn’t get $100 in the next twenty-four hours, the cow will be cooked to well done.
Some people find the “hack” funny, and others are not impressed as advertisers lose eyeballs during this time.
Also, if you are wondering whether or not John Cow has done this to his own site, the fact that the Paypal button on the “hacked” page submits $1 to [email protected] kinda clinches the deal.
No doubt he is getting many links, and a fair bit of traffic from this whole thing. I have to admit, the owner of John Cow is a marketing genius.
