    Untill now I really didn't used Myspace at all.

    But I have seen that some webmasters are using Myspace profiles
    for getting huge traffic..
    SEMrush
    What are they doing ?

    They create their profile and spam other users/profiles or what?

    They generally post bulletins that have a link to their site in it and some link to their site from within their Myspace profile.


    Thats another common advertising method while using Myspace.

    The key to any successful traffic strategy is to have compelling content, an irrestible offer or any of the other pull factors you see in traffic generation strategies.

    if you're not providing value, yes you might be able to add a whole bunch of people initially, but if you're spamming them, people will unsubscribe in droves.

    I've a myspace profile up at www.myspace.com/andreww38 which stands at 715 now.

    is it a lot?
    nope.

    but there are two factors that determine how important your network is:
    1) quantity
    2) quality

    you can have 100,000 friends, but if they're not active, you might as well have 100.

    it goes back to how well you use your network.

    Dear Friends,

    I am fully agreed with andreww. Spamming may give you some temporary visitors. But if you really want good future for your Website you don't need Temporary you need returning or loyal visitors which you can't get by spamming. Just imagine the impression you get when you receieve spam emails have to read them before report them as spam. I wish i and all other community members feel the same way for spamming. Spammers should be giveth away.

    Thanks.

    if you have quality members in yr network, you can do interesting stuff.

    i'm of the mindset now that quality is more impt than quantity.
    quality member will help you or buy-into your mkting campaigns.

    those who're out to whore for a high friend count likely will be browsers, rather than buyers.

    Myspace lately looks like a network full of adderbots and other robots to me. I bet 99 % of the friend requests are automated.

    it's one thing to get a ton of friends.

    i believe former playboy playmate kailayu has like 100k friends (she's decent looking.... :) )

    but a lot of people arent able to use their networks or monetize effectively.

    if you've:
    1) a targeted friends list
    2) using the myspace blog or bulletin feature to broadcast focused, highly relevant and useful info
    3) follow up with your 'friends'
    4) generate some interesting 2 way interactions

    i dont see how you can't use myspace as a next gen communications platform.

    it's not really what tools you have, but rather how you use the tools at hand.
