From Concept To Community: How I Built An Online Community And Took It Viral In 25 Days With Little Money And No SEO
From Concept To Community: How I Built An Online Community And Took It Viral In 25 Days With Little Money And No SEOI announced the official launch of my new online community, Publetariat.com, on 2/11/2009. The site got over 7,000 hits in the first 24 hours following its launch, and an Alexa traffic ranking in the top 7% by the end of its first week---top 2% when adjusted for the fact that Alexa's rankings are based on a 3-month window and Publetariat had only been live for 1 week. What makes these results even more astonishing still is the fact that I'd only come up with the idea for the site one month before, on January 15, 2009. In just 18 days, I'd taken the site from concept to go-live. In just 25 days, I'd taken it from concept to a top 2% Alexa traffic rank! In this book I explain how I did it, and provide the practical, concrete tips and advice you need to create your own online community success story.
