So about the cat video. I’ve been told repeatedly that if you want more “traffic” on your site, add a cat or puppy video. My jaw hit the floor at the mere thought that this could have merit. I take my website seriously (although I do occasionally go off the rails) and it frustrates me that anyone would prefer a pet video over…well…me. It’s an ego thing, apparently.
Well, I had to know the answer and yes, I’m aware that I may have altered the end result with the way that I intro’d the video, blah, blah, blah. Anyway, here are the twitter results…Cat Video on left, prior article on right, similar time frame.
Also, the Cat Video received a tepid response on Facebook but did above average on Instagram. My guess is that each venue has a somewhat different type of user which could account for the differences. All said, my delicate ego remains ridiculously intact.
