TattooFlash.Info is a web page dedicated to free tattoo flash.
difference in the concept of tattooflash.info is, that compared to a "regular"
free flash page, tattooflash.info does not host any free flash itself, but it
links to more than 350 tattoo-pages that offer free flash.
If the search
engines would do their job correctly, there would be no sense in running a page
like this. But since you get 98% useless links, as soon as you include the word
'free' in any search, tattooflash.info and it's concept is a total
TattooFlash.Info - Some background
Our page started up as a personal home page in 1998, it
hosted free flash designs until about mid-1999, then we started linking to free
Here is "the story told":
My son started
drawing tattoo designs and asked me in summer 1998, if I could post his flash on
our personal home page. Since I was very happy about him wanting to go in that
direction, I made some pages with his flash for free download. Unfortunately he
lost interest after a while, and I took the designs down, since nothing was
updated any more. The search engines however had listed these pages already, and
I did not want to give visitors a 'page not found' message. So I searched for
some other pages with good free flash, and posted the links on the page instead
of the designs.
This is when the strange thing happened: Instead of five
visitors a week, all of a sudden five visitors a day looked at that page, then
ten, then even more.
So I added more links, and after I had about a dozen
links, I started to rank them. The number of visitors kept increasing and I
added more and more links and features (Message board, News letter).
had over 500 visitors per day in October 2001, I got an email from my
Web-hosting-company. They told me, that I was using up too much bandwidth and
that I should upgrade my account. So it was either shutting the whole thing
down, or 'going for it'.
I decided to move the pages from a personal home
page to an own domain and installed a shop to help me pay for it.
TattooFlash.Info was born.
In the mean time we have more than 4,000,000 page
