Sex. Plenty of it...

Thought that'll get your attention...

It's official! Sex appeal is what sells blogs.

As of late i've noticed that the top 10 on kottu is more often than not headed by a topic that deals with sex, hooking up, preference of girls, relationships, etc. The last straw was when a 14 year old chick brandished "flirt" on her topic, and now is number 1 on kottu's most popular. Her post was a sour grapes tale on how she didn't get into the interact club. Highly disappointing. But the only reason I can think of on why so many people would click on her link was to find out what "flirt" had got to do with the post.

So here's the deal. If you want to have a popular blog, make sure ur title carries a word which oozes sex appeal. I'd suggest "sex, flirt, i-wanted-to-do-him-in-the-office, mile high club, hottie, bikini, one night stand, screw-me-silly". Who knows, you might be number 1 on kottu.

SO is this an instrumental band? Or are you forgetting a "singer"? he he..

mambo said...

actually this has been blogged on many times previously...

as much as its frustrating to learn... yeah sex sells... but it doesnt last... its only fleeeting...
remember the once famous song.. Mambo No.5 ? Ricky Martin ? the only reason Britney Spears and Madonna remain in the radar r becos they have become some form of side show freaks.

My point is Sex appeals.. but is only fleeting... as for ur experiment.. nice try... but ppl have a load of quality stuff to read and share some interesting insights..

But ask urself this question...
Did u put up this blog to GET No1 Ratings on Kottu? or to have a portal to share ur insights to the world with?

before long u'll know if ur an attention seeker or serious blogger.

wish u all the best on ur band mate..

chaarm-max - working on the vocalist machang...
Mambo - With all due respects, alot of things have been blogged about way more than once. If u read kottu regularly u'll find ur self in a familiar state of deja-vu constantly. but thanks for the comment.
Ram - i never doubted that sex appeal sells with music at all especially through videos. My point is exactly what your saying. There's plenty of quality stuff to read and interesting insights. But people still click on such headlines as "oh my gawd, i didnt get into interact so i'll brandish it as a club for flirts". Even my headline. There was no substance to it but there were plenty of clicks. I'm not looking to raise my rankings on kottu at all. I prefer to write relevant stuff that i care about, and if a few ppl read it, and read it for the material, then i'm happy. All i'm trying to say is think of the majority of us in kottu... We're developing a bad reputation for ourselves.
Thanks for the comment and for the wishes for the band:)

14 is the age when teenage girls discover things like.. sex. so she was probably just letting out what she felt at that point anw..
