About.com: Need. Know. Accomplish.


I’ve been trolling About.com’s wealth of small business articles and tips. They’re actually quite helpful, but the helpfulness is undone by About’s reprehensible coding; Clicking on a link takes you to the page you want, but About’s digital meathooks anchor a banner to the top, and the page URL is sheathed in an About referrer. Given how much decent info it hosts, I feel guilty thumbing it down. But until they get their Big Brother (in the Orwellian, not Channel 4 sense) tendencies dealt with, the info is not worth the hassle.
