Microsoft destroys FriendFeed (or how to come up with a high traffic post)
Does you blog need a traffic boost? Traffic off a little bit and need some link love? Let me explain how it’s done.
1: Pick the name of major company who regularly does things.
Your best bet is always one of the following: Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, IAC, FIM (Fox Interactive Media.) Note besides Fox, media companies don’t cut it any more because most of them are struggling.
2: Pick an action word
For example: acquires, copies, partners, destroys, beats, molests….well maybe not the last one.
3: Pick a target.
The idea is to pick a service or company that is considered “cool” or “in.” Suggestions include Twitter, FriendFeed, Digg, Evernote, Plasq, Second Life..maybe not the last one.
4. Acquire a standard dice, roll it to come up with the number of anonymous internal sources to be used in the post.
Hat tip to Kara Swisher for the inspiration.
