    Some of you who are slightly familiar with myspace probably know about the infamous "bulletin" feature. For those of you who don't know it allows you to post a message that can only be viewed by people who are listed as your "friends". Since my main site is targeted at the age range of 14-24 and that happens to be the most prominent age range of the ever-growing myspace generation, I decided to take advantage of that statistic.

    Along with the usual "send this page to a friend" or "post a link to this site on your webpage" link on the sites I have, I added the option to "Share this page with your myspace friends".

    Basically a person view the site clicks the link...it posts a bulletin on their page of an advertisement for my site, that is seen by all of that person's myspace "friends". If one of their friends clicks a link to my page in that bulletin it opens another opportunity for my website to be exposed to any number of more myspace users. It creates a tree branch effect that yields exponentially rising traffic.

    I expected this new feature to pull in some traffic but not in the high numbers that I did actually receive. I don't want to share a link to the site, but I will show some proof of success with some awstats screen shots.

    My adsense earnings on the first day was $X,XXX.XX, which blew me away because it was the first time I even broke $XXX.XX :D

    I suggest to anyone, with the appropriate website, to try this technique.

    wow, 58 to 24k uniques almost over night is impressive. Did you have to create a myspace profile and add a bunch of friends and stuff, or just add a "Share this page with your myspace friends..." link on your site?

    It doesn't matter how many friends YOU yourself have. It's all about other people's myspaces and how they spread it.

    Yep, myspace is huge. They reached 3rd rank on alexa. I cannot believe they surpassed MSN. The funny thing is that they have been in existance for 3 years and they are huge. Very lucky people...

    wow that is a cool spike :)
    you can get a better one only if you put your link on myspace.com :p

    that traffic is probably not very useful though, like digg and other similar social stuff, unless you can turn them into your constant visitors or members etc.

    Over a grand in AdSense cash in 24 hours not very useful? Sounds like a decent ROI to me!

    I don't really expect my daily hits to stay above the 100k's and earnings over a grand and a half, but from the looks of it I think I will level off with average daily earnings in the mid $XXX.XX range...I see it popping up all over myspace.

    Can you maybe paste the html code you used for the link here so others (like myself :D) can see how to implement something like this?

    That's pretty amazing overall!!!... I'd be curious to know what were your adsense numbers in general on this particular site before adding this new functionality?:)

    Pretty amazing, how's today going? Are you expecting even more traffic today or is it starting to fall down?

    By the way, I'm also interested in the code ;)
