    As you know I am a big fan of BYC and I promote it to everyone who doesn't know. When I meet someone who has chickens, I always ask do you know about backyardchickens.com? Well in answering a craigs list about a coop, I advised the poster to go to "backyardchicken. com". Do you notice anything?

    I left off the S. Well apparently if you google Backyardchicken.com, it takes you to a sex site. The poster sent me a message asking if it was some kind of joke. I am so embarrassed. I hope there is something that can be done about this mixup in domain names.

    Oh wow! I had that happen once - when we were moving to this area I remembered the newspaper name as Daily Post - It's Daily Press. DO NOT GO TO DAILY POST.

    I am not sure how it happened but when I clicked on the Backyardchicken.com? in my e-mail it takes me to a site for XXX sites. Its' really upsetting to have this happen. I hope they find this site cuz it's alot of help. If you don't think you can build a coop for under the $200 they were looking for in their posting you need to use your imagination. This really is the best site for ideas. If you don't find one you like you can always modify someone elses design.

    Why don't you suggest Backyardchickens forum instead of just Backyardchickens.com

    Quote:You wrote Backyardchicken...not backyardchicken(s). Could that be the discrepancy? One thing for sure...we must be getting big if a sex site is trying to get hits through us!

    I just typed in backyardchicken.com and got a search site. Don't know what that guy is looking up if he's getting that site...

    I got a search engine also [​IMG] If it was me I would try variations until I found it, that's just me.
