Social Media - It's About Porn

Drink it!I learned a lesson about Social Media today. Porn links drive your blog traffic through the roof.

Steve Hall of AdRants linked to the Land O' Lakes trick. (Steve, you don't cut the knees off. That's barbaric. You remove the box of butter the Indian Maiden holds and put the same picture behind her - there are two on every box.) This little courtesy made for much higher than normal visits to Where's My Jetpack. Steve is a fairly big fish in the ad blogging world.

But then some naughty bloggers who are apparently the sperm whales of the blogging world got wind of Steve's post and linked to here from Fleshbot, which sent traffic to this blog into the uncharted stratosphere, where the buzz is fast and fleeting. I'll be back down in normal numbers very soon, my brief and dizzying venture into what really drives traffic these days a memory. Actually, not just these days. Always. As Fleshbot puts it: "Because the Internet was made for porn."

So , all you Social Media Evangelists, it's time to get racy. Tell your clients they need to blog nasty.

    You know, the usual stuff.

    *Media I'd Like To Forecast.

  • That's the half the fun, watching what people are searching for. Someone in in South America keeps searching my site for "enormous ass."

  • You gotta watch those links - they'll give your blog the Clap, and it'll sting a little everytime you upload a post.

  • Good old Steve linked to my piece about a bike insurance ad featuring hot women spanking the pants off each other and, months later, I'm still getting zillions of hits from porno sites.

    And reiterating what delta says, looking at the google strings is hysterical. The things people search for...
