Check out Trulia cloaking (sort of):

Trulia has a local landing page for search query: "apartments near UC"

When you click the link it takes to you to http://www.trulia.com/for_rent/University_of_Cincinnati_UC_3696_univ, and you get a 200 response code

But then the URL changes to http://www.trulia.com/for_rent/Cincinnati,OH

They appear to be using Ajax or HTML5 (?) to update the URL and, in fact, you'll get slightly different apartment listings at each URL.

It's worth noting that both pages appear to be ranking for their respective search terms.

Really interesting study on website aesthetic judgments. From my own experience, conversion rates tend to improve along the same lines:

"Overall, websites with low [visual complexity] and high [prototypicality] were perceived as highly appealing"

This place is great. Everyone I've taken here is surprised at how good it is...as in there's a look of shock on their face when they dig in. The staff is great, awesome service, amazing food, and they're in Findlay Market which is a cool place by itself. Highly recommend the Bun with beef!

Let me qualify this review by saying that I was a server for 3 years in college so it's pretty much impossible to get a complaint out of me. Whenever I feel like complaining at a restaurant I remember when I had bad nights as a server and give the staff the benefit of the doubt. That said, what I experienced Saturday night at this location was inexcusable. The food is a bit pricey, but I knew that going in. When I pay high prices for food I expect great service. The service was incredibly slow and they were not busy at all. The food was okay...can't really complain but definitely overpriced for what you get. We only saw our server maybe 3 times and each time we asked for something it took a bare min. of 20 minutes to get it We ordered two pieces of cake for our friend's birthday, which took about 30 minutes to arrive and that was only after I stopped our server to remind him we were still waiting for it. I say "stopped our server" because he was pretty much absent the entire night. In fact I'm not even sure he was our server because other people brought us our food and dessert. When the desert finally arrived we asked for our checks. Another 20 minutes or so later we were all quite ready to leave and still no checks. At no point did anyone stop by and say "sorry about the delay" or anything like that..even after I mentioned to our server that I was a little unhappy with how slow things were. Wondering if I'd ever get my check I went in to speak with the manager to tell him 1) the service was incredibly slow and 2) that we were ready to go and needed our checks. The only thing I wanted was to get my check and maybe hear an apology for the slow service. Without saying anything, the manager crumpled up the dessert check he had in his hand (presumably comping it) and then pointed to the wrist band I had on from an event I had just come from and implied that I was drunk. Needless to say being accused of being drunk because you were unhappy with the service is pretty insulting and indicative of the generally poor attitude toward customer service at this establishment.

I had my windshield replaced and everything went great. After about a week, I noticed that there was a small defect near the bottom corner of the glass. As I was driving, I noticed that the center line of the road appeared warped due to the glass. I contacted CRA Glass in Cincinnati and told them about the issue and they came out within a couple hours and replaced the glass with no questions asked. Apparently it was a manufacturer defect. I was very pleased with my initial service and even more pleased with my second service. It's nice to have a company stand behind their work and do what it takes to make the customer happy.
