No New iPad HD, Apple TV and iOS 5.1 Story. No, Nothing of Apple Today. This Is About Timing and Relevancy.
by The Outside View Blog on March 8, 2012
To boost the technology side here, I should really write about something related to Apple today. Anything about the iPad HD launch, about the new Apple TV with improved definition and user interface or about the iOS 5.1., which for some reason seems to be the topic on everyones tongue in Twitter (should I upgrade to see what the fuzz is all about?).
Actually, it seems at least two Apple topics are trending at the same time – the ‘iOS 5.1′ and the ‘New iPad’. It is amazing to see the pull the Apple brand has. This together with the launch and tons of news articles published to to high traffic news sites gives an amazing opportunityto any content marketer in any form related to the Apple, technology or to the creative ones that can put a relevant spin and suck people in as the buzz is highest. And to be more exact, it really gives an amazing opportunity to any and all content marketers. But only, if you can find a relevant way the buzz topic of today fits your existing framework and site / brand image.
Why should I write about Apple today even though I have absolutely nothing to say on the topic?
Because, as I said above, timing and relevancy will do wonders to your page views and metrics both in the short and long run. Not only will it increase your Google page rank in long term, but also bring a significant amount of visitors to your site. Just be careful not to mislead the people coming to read your article, and even more so, to your site.
it’s been read over 45.000 times in total (when all the syndicated sources are summed up),
and the articles together still continue to bring over 300 unique visitors to his site daily.
Quite an amazing numbers for simple, small effort articles in a newcomer blog.
So as you can see, I really should write about something of Apple today. But this is the extent I will got to with it. Lets see what happens, and if timing with very little relevancy and no linking efforts can do its magic the third time in a row.
