As you all know I’m a big .us fan and I’m always interested to see how people use .us domains. I think .us makes the most sense when the website specifically targets the United States but of course “us” can be used as a Domain Hack as it is here. In this case the owners of the site are actually taking a shot at Google themselves as the site serves as a guide illustrating how Google tracks it’s users.
While I don’t think .us has a ton of great uses as a Domain Hack this is certainly a fun one and this whole story really caught my attention because of their ridiculous billboard…of course the .us name is nowhere to be found but the .com is prominently displayed, but hey if they put DontTrack.us on the billboard wouldn’t most people go to DontTrack.com anyway?
