Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. It is well known that many websites use hidden text to ensure hits from search engines. The ARRSE hidden text is this:

    military,sports,credit cards,loans,holidays,travel,time shares,villa rental,bmw, porshe,hummer,car rental,cars,motorcycles ,bikes,motorbikes,bodybuilding ,loans,bodybuilding,health insurance,uk,england,scotland,wales,ireland,germany, sailing,yacht,rugby, adventure,mens grooming, windsurfing,skiing,ski,chalet,climbing, memory loss,fitness,gymnasium,golf,snowboard

    and appears at the bottom of the screen just above "Powered by p h p B B 2.0.8 © 2001 p h p B B Group".

    Some of these are obvious, but most of them appear totally random - "memory loss"???? Can someone enlighten the Congregation as to why these particular words were chosen, or can't anyone remember??? :lol:
  2. It also appears at the top - just above 'Forum FAQ' 'Search' 'Members List' etc.....


  3. Memory loss? That's just a result of all the drinking that takes place in the...urm...the...er...drinking...place? Maybe.
  4. surely the words at the top (known as meta tags?) ahould include perverts, drinking games, skiffing, swamping and wetlove amongst others? :wink:

  6. Only one problem

    I think the google and altavista bots are trained to disregard sites they regard as 'spamming' keywords?

    Anyone know for sure?
  7. I don't think so. Every time I search for porn, I have to sort thru all of the pages that spam words on their site. the bloody barstards. :D
