I get really annoyed when such blatantly false statements are slapped onto a website. If you can't say that honestly then it is a great opportunity to be creative with messaging and say something that adds value.
This has been a pet peeve of mine for as long as I've been running online businesses. Our competitors are always #1... all of them, at the same time.
Execs or Companies with PIMM have trouble adjusting to the concept that transparency is now often the best way to build trust and strong customer connections to a product, service, company.
They don't realize even when they are wrong or make mistake transparency can still come out ahead.
They don't realize that if you are trying to for example, sell a TV, creating expensive, buzzword laden, high production value marcom, might not be as effective as having a couple of employee subject matter experts make videos for youtube and provide unvarnished, useful information.
In the pre-internet marketing era you actually had a well established #1 job board for each vertical at the back of a printed trade publication full of expensively-created content to try to build customer connections to classified advertising. In the internet marketing era, people that want jobs Google $industry jobs and find a whole bunch of established or brand new identikit job boards often syndicating the same job ads paid for by the same central supplier, each claiming to be #1 (or "the best" or "biggest choice" or similar) because their metrics suggest making such boasts increases search clickthroughs and return visits.
A good place to find remote work.
I/We try our best to find you good remote work.
Still sends the message and positions the service as one that is for the benefit of the user.
"Weekend/class project where I managed to implement a form for submitting jobs and a search box, together with the backend. Planning to turn it into an actual website for submitting and searching remote jobs, which will be better than the alternatives because..."
It would definitely get much better reception and honest criticism.
So its not the best right now, but at least they have a goal.
If that line is truly their goal then why not just say that,
"Building the best place to find remote jobs"
That small change honestly communicates why the site exists, why I should be interested in it and why there are limited legitimate job postings at the moment. It also tells me that this site is still evolving and I should check back.
Note to employers: "Implement a simple REST service in language X" is getting really, really old. You ought to be able to come up with something more challenging that isn't such a boring time sink.
This is what I see out there:

Great! I've been looking for a remote position for ages. The on-site work has taken a toll.
Really. Just... don't trust people...
I wouldn't even have that online.
EDIT: put url to imgur instead of direct
Maybe I'm blacklisted, or just terrible at my job and don't know it.
