The domain "phraseguides.com" was available, so I immediately bough it and dumped the old content in. I think that name might be even better than the original. I'll be slowly updating the content and formatting it with the new branding.
The good news is that all of the content is back in the hands of the creator! (me!) This site was my labor of love for many years in the late 90's while living in Europe. I poured my soul into it and am very grateful to have it back and to have it grow again.
The bad news is that years of neglect and tons advertising (forcefully inserted into the content) lost all of the traffic and goodwill this site had, and probably ruined my google rankings. It will take a long time to recover.
