    I would love to have your views.

    People like us build websites regularly.Some of the sites succeed and get decent rankings and traffic. It's just another day in our life.

    But when someone based in silicon valley starts a website why is it hyped by the press and it is branded as "startup", "media company" and so on. A funny fact is that many of these sites dont break 100k in alexa.

    Once I saw an article in Techcrunch about a 15 year old. He made a wordpress MU site. Plain and simple. The site now has a rank of around 600k. Now IN BHW we have many 15 year olds who are doing great.

    My question does this publicity help their efforts?

    Your views........

    Hype many a times help.
    but you also need a good unique idea along with the hype.
    like you yourself pointed out(common sites like wpmu) dont benefit from hype.
    publicity helps only if you have a good product.
