Staying well away of political partisanship, it is interesting to note that someone has capitalised on the “Joe the plumber” popularity.
Of course, this will disappear in a week or two, in the meantime here is your “Joe the plumber” website at http://www.joetheplumber.com/
Interestingly, a search on “whois.com” to find out to whom the URL belongs yielded this response:
The IP address from which you have visited the Network Solutions Registrar WHOIS
database is contained within a list of IP addresses that may have failed
to abide by Network Solutions’ WHOIS policy. Failure to abide by this policy can
adversely impact our systems and servers, preventing the processing of
other WHOIS requests.
The phone number given in the Contact Us page bears a Texas, Amarillo area code (806) prefix (376).
The “Joe” everyone has been talking about is in fact Samuel J. Wurzelbacher of Ohio, not Texas.
Surely JoeThePlumber.com is experiencing a lot of traffic mostly outside of Amarillo. The question is, will the person who set-up the URL gain more from selling plumbing services, or would it have done better with featuring targeted commercials?
Expecting much traffic from this post, and avoiding the above-mentioned mistake, I promptly refer you to Mediacodex.com for public speaking, presentation skills, media training and career advancement services.
