Hey, guys, I've been thinking about setting up a site with funny pictures, slideshows, "top 10 x", etc. and driving traffic through Facebook, forums and chats. 1. I will make a Facebook page with lots of likes. I want to make something like the TipTopLolz FB page . People like to browse through such mediocre content, so the biggest problem is getting the page its first few thousand likes. 2. I will spam different forums - I will make bots go through a few hundred really big forums, choose the most generic sections for each forum (like "Offtopic", "Media" and "Politics" - not specific to the main topic of the forum) and start posting threads with some of the bots and replies with the others. I will scrape a few thousand topics/ responses. Most forums are on vBulletin, phpBB and a few other platforms so changing a bot that works on 1 forum to work on the others will be relatively easy. I will make the accounts manually so I don't have to deal with CAPTCHAs and stuff like that. All it takes is registering in let's say 300 forums (manually), putting the link/ banner of the site in the signature (manually), scraping content (manually) and then making threads once or twice a day and replying with similar frequency. There's a lot of initial overhead, but once the accounts/ signatures/ topics/ bots are ready, it's pretty much on autopilot. 3. I will make bots that will spam Omegle and other chat sites all day every day. This is the easiest method, I will maybe have to use URL shorteners if my URL gets banned. 4. I will not invest any time in SEO, besides a little on site optimization. I want my site to get traffic from the above methods and maybe people sending funny URLs through Skype and whatnot. Neglecting SEO is the way to go, because I will only create backlinks from LPR forums and Facebook. 5. The site itself is trivial to make - even WordPress would work. So that seems like a good way to drive traffic to yet another 9gag-like site. The only problem I have is what ad networks to choose. Should I go for CPM or CPC? Could a network ban me for spamming the link to the site?
