Does Sex Really Sell? - You Bet it Does!

Pornography. By just typing that one word, I am virtually guaranteeing that I will get at least five visitors to one of the most obscure blogs gracing the information superhighway, The JEP Report. If I have learned one thing in this larval stage of internet entrepreneurialship, it is that there is definitely a lot of money to be made on the internet. Unfortunately, for those of us cursed with a moral threshold too high to profit off of the perverse or a body that no one in their right mind would pay to see in positions that would send the Marquis de Sade into a hysterical blushing fit, we need to rely upon something other than our juicy booties to make an e-buck.

Now, I’m not trying to pass judgment upon those web surfers who blew $1500 at CompUSA for what essentially amounts to an electronic subscription to Hustler. Nor am I trying to be hypocritical and try to pass myself off as one who has never entered an adult website (Don’t give me that “holier-than-thou” look either. If you received an e-mail promising explicit pictures of Bea Arthur and Walter Cronkite at the 22nd Annual Mud Wrestling Mixer in Memphis Tennessee you’d bite too, even if only out of morbid curiosity more than anything else). So, what is my point? There isn’t one. The last two paragraphs you just read were nothing more than a shameless attempt to attract more site hits using specific keywords.

Not everything has been so bleak here at The JEP Report over the past couple of days, however. In fact, The JEP Report just recently logged its first visitor referred to the site as a result of a Google search. Apparently on December 21st, some hapless web surfer was sent to The JEP Report’s December 13th article on Al Sharpton as a result of typing “picture of a retarded llama” into the Google search engine. This was a significant development because it confirmed that The JEP Report was being queried by Google. It did however, raise several more pressing questions like: Why in the world was someone out there looking for a picture of a retarded llama? Did they actually find one? Who is the person that did this? I’m dying to know. Sounds like a person I would really like to party with one day.

Amanda, are you the retarded llama picture seeker? If you are, there's a lot of unanswered questions about you that I have. And thanks for the compliment!

Haha no, I am not the retarted llama seeking person. I just have an appreciation for random things like that.
