THIS GUY.

Actually, despite the fact that this site is essentially a time machine back to 1999, the content is super addicting. A few years ago I read through a ton of his pages. He's like the coolest grandpa ever LOL.

For instance, check out his experimentation to find out how to make the best tasting cake from a box mix.

It was his tutorial on how to grow ranunculuses that first led me to the page.

I like the way this guy thinks.

Even if his web design skills aren't exactly cutting edge. :rofl:
I got instantaneous flashback from this. I was on the internet in 91 or 92 using PINE and other stuff I can't remember the name of on a monochrome screen and a 2400 baud modem (I was able to skip the 300 and 1200). By mid 1994 I had a 4 color EGA monitor, 14400 baud modem and my first WWW login. WOW what an amazing world of very little it was. I remember there was one page that was a counter of how many pages existed on the whole web. Who knows if it was accurate but I watched it go from double digits through mid triple digits and it disappeared or maybe I stopped watching.

I would seriously love to see a couple examples of sites that you guys consider cutting edge or at least current edge.

It's definitely not about being cutting edge, but at least being current.

Something like https://www.valtech.com/ might be overkill for Dan's Local Marketing Agency, but Home | Mindgrub could work. Note, not the content, but the aesthetic.

Not using frames and looking like the website was built in Dreamweaver in 2003.

For sure, you should give it a new look but why book images are not clickable here? However, you should keep in mind that if it is an old site then it would have worth among the new ones due to high domain rating, DA and PA etc.

If you can add value to these very old sites and upgrade them to say a weebly or shopify site for a fair price and have someone like; @SEO Guy @SEO New York @seodo @SEOMarketer to do some SEO or other work behind and around it like @eliquid or (i.e. Adwords) @Andy Black , wouldn't that work or at least help these sites?
If they don't want to invest in a new design I doubt they even know what SEO is.
