You said, "Just looking at the link you posted I, unfortunately, didn`t click past the first page because it wasn`t at all clear why I would want to. "
That`s exactly how I feel when I visit MySpace and more and more as I view search engine results. It used to be the case that the top Google search results were where I wanted to go. Now the top Google result is rarely where I want to go. Most often it is a list of some sites similar to http://www.aviongoo.com/shopping_mall/ which is why I created http://www.aviongoo.com/shopping_mall/ in the first place. I don`t really like the http://www.aviongoo.com/shopping_mall/ web page, I just figure that eventually Google might list some of the linked pages found there because so many similar results rank highly on Google as results.
As far as me saying "to hell with the search engines", since I can not control them and the folks selling SEO scams can not control them - the only real way to get listed high is to pay Google for AdWords. Therefore, I want to say to hell with search engines by figuring out a way I don`t need them. If at some point Google indexes my pages great! But I can`t wish and hope that that is going to happen.

In summary, the MySpace home page is introducing an album, a movie and a festival - none of which are of any interest to me. Other than that, it`s got a bunch of links elsewhere on the website.
The key for MySpace is providing a home page for people that have no idea they are building and maintaining their own home page. That`s why they get return visitors. Take that away and they have nothing.
