Last year we announced our new kid: Viral Content Buzz [Update: Currently ViralContentBee.con]. We’ve been diligently going through (and beyond) the To-Do list since then and even though the project can be considered pretty established now, I still have my wow moments with it.
One of them is a little case study of how VCB is able to revive a pretty dead site.
I have a little website which I don’t have time to focus on. It was started as a hobby and sadly, times got too busy too fast.
The site has a part-time editor (not that the person has a bunch of time for it either) and basically it is maintained as follows:
The site wasn’t doing well in Google and it was doing pretty average on Twitter and Facebook.
A few weeks ago I submitted my own article to Viral Content Buzz and it worked!
***There’s always that feeling when you are building a tool and you are full of excitement and hopes but then you see it actually working and that’s the best reward you can get…
Anyway, the traffic isn’t crazy so far, but if you see what it used to be, the progress is huge for the half-forgiven (still loved) site:
Here’s the project stats from VCB:
As you can see, it was pretty-well seeded on StumbleUpon and if you look at its StumbleUpon reviews, it got quite a few natural likes there which must have meant it worked!
If you look at traffic sources, StumbleUpon is its largest source now:
(Yes, SU traffic isn’t that great when it comes to user engagement, but it’s still not bad!)
Viral Marketing Generating Machine?
No… Whenever you see someone call their site / service like this, run!
I say, this little case study is perfect illustration of how Viral Content Buzz should work: It just seeds a couple of initial votes and let your content quality do the rest for you! The better content, the more odds you have to get more shares and likes!
Here’s what we are trying to accomplish with ViralContentBuzz:
ViralContentBuzz is not an automated machine… Nor it is supposed to *fake* it that your pages enjoy some social media love. It’s the way to get discovered and move forward accordingly (if you deserve it). It’s meant to show you the direction.
