    First they did this - it hit the front page of Reddit under the idiotic "Internet is Beautiful" subreddit. They got 20k backlinks - no doubt from some big guys - and then once the hype died down, they dropped some anchor text into the page - see if you can find it.

    Now they're doing this, on the front page of Reddit again, same thing will happen.

    Top 10:

    The extent of my SEO knowledge these days is only on-site, so I don't know if this had a huge effect on that rank, but if it did...

    Even more impressive considering they're playing Reddit, which is primarily made up of anti-advertising plebs.

    They probably have a big SEO budget as well in addition to just using Reddit, those penny-stock advertising companies can get $15,000 to $20,000 for each stock they are promoting.

    Don't forget to take a look on the likes of the first link they shared . 59 Fu*king K.

    EDIT: http://pennystocks.la/battle-of-internet-giants/ is the second anchor text you meant?

    Didn't even see that one. The one I was referring to is below the actual counters.

    I remember when I was selling .LA domain on BHW people were complaining how it was not .COM so it is not good....it is not good when you don't have any idea what to do with domain. "oh yeah, I am gonna trow in 700 words article written by native writer and watch the rankings go up"
    Thanks OP.

    fucking awesome, brainy stuff.

    I've seen this technique in past.. instead of Viral stuff.. Someone had built a fake site (Hoax) on the death of a very Popular TV character. It was made viral on FB. Then later it was announced as a Hoax on on Big News sites. Links followed.

    After a week, the (inner) page was Redirected (301) to homepage.. The owner hit page #3 for a 3-5k$/day kw :D

    This is perfect content. The kind of content that intrigues people to click on the link- then they nod and say oh wow- then they move on. Majority won't even read the whole thing. But they will be quick to share it and send it to others.

    Not sure if anyone remembers, but in the early 2000's, we used to do something similar. We had a page on our sites for the most popular google searches in real time and promoted that specific page. It brought great results.
