Hilarious! The whole Conrad website is horrible (the same as their customer service!)

Underscores are treated the same as dashes by Google. Not sure about other engines...

The original page -if you would use conrad.de as starting point and have cookies allowed- about the dell akku is this one:
www1.conrad.de/scripts/wgate/zcop_b2c/~flN0Y
XRlPTI3MzU3NTg3ODg=?~template=pcat_produ
ct_details_document&product_show_id=250995&
no_brotkrumennavi=1&zhmmh_area_kz=LN&fh_h
ost=www1.conrad.de&fh_session=/scripts/wgat
e/zcop_b2c/~flN0YXRlPTI3MzU3NTg3ODg=

(On the page mentioned in the post they also have weird/ not really relevant links in the text, without it being obvious they are links because they have the same colour as the surrounding text.)

They should change their whole site; if you enter the site via www.conrad.de you see a Website where cookies are obligated(!) and the website is build with frames. Via their page: www.conrad.de/script/ you'll find a site without frames. They optimized this www.conrad.de/script/ page by buying links with the anchortext "Elektronik", for example on
www.pc-professionell.de and
www.active-home.de/
www.testticker.de/

If you look in Google.de for "electronik", the have position #4. Look at the "optimized" title and description. Apparently Google's paid link tracking system isn't working for this one.

produkt.conrad.de/ is also "optimized", everything on the page nofollowed, with exemption of their products, mentioned in the middle. This page has links with the anchortext "conrad elektronikversand" from the pages:
www.kontaktlinsen-knowhow.de/pflege.html
www.lastminute-flug-richtig-billig.de/ferienhaeuser.html

Conrad.de is listed #2 for "electronikversand"

Conrad's website is like an ancient tire with tons of holes they are trying to repair, with lots of different glue and other stuff, while they should just should make/ buy a new anti-flat tire (search engine friendly website/ CMS).

PS. These URLs are also funny:
www.conrad.de/Akkus-Batterien/die_biene_maja-38.sap
www.conrad.de/TV-SAT-DVD/anton_der_zauberer.sap

[URLs unlinked just in case. -Philipp]
