Degentrification is when an area or neighborhood starts to gentrify so quickly that it does not 'organically' gentrify and certain elements of that process break down and begin to erode the process. (meaning, the process is too rapid to have ever happened over time, culturally and of its own accord.) In the case the north brooklyn, the gentrification has almost been forced or pushed by condo builders in order to sell condos offering incentives that they never had any intention of producing. When this happens, word spreads fast and those reasons which originally inspired people to move there become reversed and disappear.

Optitryzation is the process of trying to improve the volume or quality of traffic to a web site or a web page (such as a blog) from search engines via "natural" or un-paid ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results as opposed to other forms of search engine marketing (SEM) which may deal with paid inclusion. the difference between optitryzation and optimization is the latter misses the mark entirely by virtue of doing it the wrong way.
The owner of that website has obviously had a fun filled weekend of search engine optitryzation, because there are keywords stuffed everywhere.
