Learning free traffic methods from online Pranks

 

Tired of Making Chump Change Online?

4Chan is one of the Internet’s leaders in spreading memes.  It’s also a great source of free traffic methods such as its rumored gaming of Google Trends for the search term “hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha”

Well, 4Chan prankster are at it again with a massive porn prank raid on Youtube set for June 12.  Click the thumbnail below.

What’s the lesson to learn from this?  If you have a massive base, media can be manipulated through crowdsourced options.  Another lesson, learn to piggyback on crowdsourced efforts.  As always, make sure your own attempts at milking free traffic from high traffic sites comport with the letter and spirit of their TOS.  DO NOT copy the 4chan prank described above–it obviously violates tagging/labeling and content rules.  While observing how these pranks work is educational, make sure your own traffic generation efforts comply with all relevant laws.  Usually, if you provide content (which you rightfully own) in exchange for traffic, a win win situation is created.

  1. Great article. I once heard of someone using 4chan for traffic and it took his server down. I don’t know if that is true or myth. None the less well done and a great little tip on online pranks.

    I need to research that a bit hehe.
