The Best Website Taglines Around the Internet

Famous among dozens is funny. I am going to click over and check that one out just because I like the humor.
Mine’s “Happiegrrrl Climbing – Where I’ve Been and Things That Have Happened While I Was There.” Pretty much tells it like it is, with a bit of climber attitude.
My website’s tagline is “You Can Look Better Than You Really Do.”
(We Photoshop retouch pictures of people.)
Tom @ Scinti
That is a good one too!

I draw your attention to my *other* tagline:
“A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma, stuffed up a dog’s bottom”
So, so sorry.
We make up the news, so you don’t have to.
One which still makes me chuckle is SEO Dave Naylors site which has the tag line “Can’t beat a good rank”.
Thanks guys, the ones suggested were pretty good, I updated the post and we are up to 45.
You forgot deanhunt.com – “Cos everyone is entitled to my opinion”
CAP News … Are you in on the joke?
Not as hip as some of these, mine is “Share your shed”, does exactly what it says on the tin.
I’ve always liked People You’ll See In Hell’s (pysih.com) “Your daily dose of evil.”
But then I’m alone in a basement right now.
Hey, thanks for choosing Needcoffee! I’d like to humbly suggest the tagline of one of our newest sites, dedicated to mindless and entertaining violence, The Daily Kicksplode: “No gimmicks. No frills. Just once a day, something takes it in the face. Because this is what you want.”
Nice funny collection of Blog messages
Also, I’ve always been fond of Mighty Girl’s “FAMOUS AMONG DOZENS”
My fancy formatting = FAIL
Haphazardly Spellchecked Since 2002
Sturgeon’s Law Strictly Enforced
The Buckhorn Beer Of Weblogs
Thinking Outside The Pants
Putting The “i” Into “Teaim”
Actually, defective yeti has about 30 rotating taglines. In addition to the one you mention, there’s also:Haphazardly Spellchecked Since 2002 (probably my personal favorite)Sturgeon’s Law Strictly EnforcedThe Buckhorn Beer Of WeblogsThinking Outside The PantsPutting The “i” Into “Teaim”
aimZblingZ – * if you can bring it, I can bling it *
Thats a pretty good list. Few are funny.
Jeremy, which ones you referring to?
I think it is kind of interesting how many popular sites/blogs are starting to dump their taglines.
I hadn’t thought that much about taglines, but you’re right, these do make the reader take notice. Thanks for pointing them out.
I’m partial to mine,
Hurty Elbow: Comedy that’s quite hurty in the elbow.
Ok, you can stop worrying now.
We’re moooved you’ve included us!
A lot of these are really good, just a nice addition for successful websites I guess.
Thanks for linking to The Art of Rhysisms, my long dead blog :). My current tagline – born out of discovering my blog was banned in China – is “1/6th of the World Can’t Access it, 5/6th of the World Doesn’t Want To
Ronald, that is a good one hehe, but I could not find it the site. Maybe they removed.
“Taking The Web Out of The Box” – My personal one 🙂
I personally like theVbag.com (slightly NSFW). They sell bags for storing umm, intimate items that women use as a replacement for men…
Tagline: “What do you put yours in?”
Something about being ‘smashed’ with information frightens me. Considering I am on dial-up, the tagline is actually a pretty good reflection of reality 😉
Mine is: Creating content 2.0 to match the new web. I like it, lists or no :).
Cool post, I think you covered most of major players. A bit of shameless self promotion here’s mine.
Reality Wired – Perception is reality and reality gets you paid.
