    I immediately signed up I am sorry if the topic in the wrong forum ;)

    Hello everyone!

    I m looking through similarweb and found some new sites with huge traffic. For example buzzie (dot) net

    buzzie - online only 4 months already at 217 in the world traffic :eek:

    - No Public in social networks (but similarweb data buzzie gets 90% of traffic from Twitter - what??)
    - No search traffic (64 pages in index)
    - no refferarls traffic
    - no direct traffic
    - NO Goole Rank

    How do they do it??

    may be, but for what?

    This is fun-content site like 9gag.. they can earn on advertising, native advertising.. etc

    Google will block the sale of advertising..

    I think it's not only bots .. Сan be of viral content so works?

    Yep must be bot traffic as they were not getting any traffic at all in NOV 2016 and suddenly got 1.4 million visitors, though the traffic seems to be from twitter but no real visitor engagement avg visitor duration is only 41 sec .

    May be they will flip the site after few months !

    To get its name out there. Make noise. Hope it gets featured somewhere as an example of a mystery site....something like that.

    You noticed it. So did thousands of people.

    What means "flip the site after few months". Flip to what and for what?

    yes it's my mistake . 217 under category Arts and Entertainment > Photography

    Probably so it is ... But they spend a lot of money to such traffic .. :-/
