They have one very clever strategy at StackOverflow - read their ideas around Google searches at the Joel's blog. They plan to attract all the people that google for some random programming problem - they designed a few details of the site so that this should work really smoothly. I think there is a great power in that startegy.

    Yeah, but that sounds like it's a monetary venture and eventually will be cluttered with designer Google ads. Want to know something about this c program, and are on Windows, then you will see ads for the spiffy new Visual C++ , or whatever. At least Perlmonks dosn't give a hoot about being listed first on Google.
