It’s been under 24 hours since i blogged about Eduardo breaking his ankle. I knew immediately this would be hot stuff, with many searches on google as it was an x-rated tackle with many TV stations refusing to show it – so people then automaticaly head to the net for the gruesome detail.
I also knew my own ability to get pages indexed rapidly in google. Put all that together and it’s a recipe for traffic. Yesterday, i received over 1000 unique visitors and today it’s at about 400 so far
I’ve also registered badtackle.com and badtackles.com in a bid to get cracking on this niche, as it’s another untouched field of snow for me to go wild in 🙂 That’s how clued in i am and although i genuinely feel for Eduardo and wish him recovery (it’s a horrible thing to happen to anyone – let alone a footballer who relies on his feet to make a living), i saw an opportunity and grabbed it.
So is this all poor form on my part? No, i don’t think so. This is all over the papers, all over other blogs and forums and nobody got killed, it was a clever move and shows my ability to spot a niche, beat off the competiton and gain from it before they do and if you break ‘business’ down – that’s pretty much the definition of it 😛
I’ve also used it as a tutorial session for you guys on how acting quickly and showing good awareness can pay dividend.
