    I've seen lots of viral websites with copy-pasted content (like viral youtube videos embedded, fake "funny" SMS conversations, "look at this beautiful wooden house pictures, share it") getting hundreds of thousands of views in 2-3 months of creating the website. They usually have 50-80% bounce rate, 1-2 min average visit duration and 99% of traffic coming from FB.

    I could make a much more optimized (share,speed,revenue) viral website, and there would be very minimal work with copying/translating content. I could get views from posting on 5k friends FB profile page, and sharing in 200 groups, maybe even with more fb accounts, then rely on those visitors to share the articles, and go viral through Facebook.

    What would my challenges be? It just feels way too easy to be true.

    Note that I live in an country which you probably haven't even heard of, about 15m ppl speaking the language of the website im planning to make, so competition is greatly less than the millions of viral websites in English.

    The biggest challenge would be to get that steady initial traffic.

    Take it from me, someone who started a site like that prior to being on here all the time. It's hard as hell. My site has an average of 5 page views super low bounce rate and 6 min per visit. I can send a ton of traffic but earning isn't the best. You can try it, a lot of people here have done it and been successful. It works and its not that hard

    I suppose traffic is not from FB then. I wouldn't mind low earnings, if ad networks don't work out I can just get emails, that's more than fine by me.

    Any tips on getting traffic?

    Even with FB limiting reach? I have a 10k likes FB page with all organic and targeted likes, and my link posts barely get any clicks, due to reach being cut.

    any of the viral websites are temporary. They will all fade away if there is no quality content.

    Ya 10k won't get you much honesty you need a lot of likes or multiple pages that are big. I have a few posting content daily all over 30k-230k

    How did you grow them, if I may ask? I'm posting to 100 groups 2 times a day relevant content, got 10k likes without any promotion under 3 months, is that good?
