That and a nice domain name. We have done zero, zip and nada advertising for
our website and I still receive literally 2-3 offers per month from people
who wish to help out on our project. Add to that the fact that I haven't
updated the site in ages, haven't even fixed the broken images links from
our server move two weeks ago and that the site is a web design catastrophy.
What gives? The only sensible explanation I have for its apparent popularity
is the domain name.
