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.
