    Hello, i just build a gag site like 9gag.com. I hired some people to build content for it. But they're work very bad. Poor quality content. And i don't have expert to build a funny meme or comic. I can only collection funny pics from the web and upload to my site. Can you suggest an ideas for me for this problem. And what's the best way to increase traffic for it. Do i need run ad on facebook or google adwords ? Hope your help.

    Sorry if i post wrong forum :(.

    Get a meme creator that lets you crank out memes on the fly. That is what those sites mostly consist of anyways. Also search google recent images to look for new funny memes created by others.

    Quality content is half the battle. So if you hired some people who can't do their job just find someone else

    You should try and see why are the popular memes so popular. Are they with cats, children, they have an ironic style etc. and after that use either the meme generator or make your own. Also for ideas check daily fourchan, from there start all the popular memes, jokes and funny stuff you find on the internet nowadays. As for the promotion of your site, at first you won't rank too high because there already exist some very powerful sites with gags. But make a facebook page where you post daily, several times a day, different memes, post on forums also, on fourchan and reddit. Good luck!

    Give you feedback? What kind of feedback are you looking for here? You stole 9gags entire design... Of course it works, but since it offers nothing new or original, it probably won't do you any good.

    What you should focus on is a design that makes your brand unique, and a domain name that isn't an attempt to mimic an already successful site. Don't be afraid to come up with your own ideas. They might be good.

    Yes. I bought the source code from http://best9gagclonescript.com/. Default template same with 9gag. I will hire designer to design unique template for it soon. Current i focus on content. And you think the domain is not good ?
