    This is a tactic that most SMMs are 100% unaware of.

    Ironically, some of the largest content publishers use variations of this tactic. Think: BuzzFeed reaps in traffic from Facebook predominately. Same with Upworthy. They use seductive headlines and re-hash content that originated somewhere else.

    Where did this content originate? Youtube, reddit, 4chan, blogs/stubmleupon.

    When bigger publishers see hot/top/timely/relevant content on these platforms, they re-hash them into their own content because it’s already been proven that the public will soak it up. Upworthy is just a front – a publisher that acts as if they’re responsible for the videos they bring to “viralness” when all they do is reword headlines for already-popular videos. Slap on a “worthy” cause and they can fend of most trolls. Anyway…

    Our goal is to be the originators. Actually creating content based on benchmarks – not re-hashing or re-hosting. If it gets upvoted we get a nice traffic boost over 24hrs.

    The recipe:
    – pick a subreddit
    – sort through top / all time content
    – brainstorm ideas based on these benchmarks
    – create it and host it on your site
    – blast it out to try and get an organic submission, otherwise submit it yourself
    – pitch it again with it’s current success to those rehasher publishers, which can get more traffic/links/shares/leads/etc…

    Great share Jesse. This seems like a solid content strategy for white hat SEOs / content marketers.

    The idea of proven validation prior to creation is really strong.

    The autos/cars subreddits are pretty great. The communities are small though, so like with most small communities on reddit you can’t really get away with promoting. For my eCom site I usually pitch it in private messages and publicly participate like most users; answer/ask questions, post pics, etc.

    I may test CPA copy/images there as a less intrusive way of publicly mentioning my site – still hesitant though.
