Hottest Hashtag right MEOW? #MTVHottest

About a week has passed since I made my last LoL Cat Meme and I’m itching for a new one. As usual, I search for trending news and events to channel inspiration. According to some random fools, the top hashtag right now is #MTVHottest — so I’m all about exploiting this.

I found a cool cat pic to caption earlier this week and instantly saved it. It has the potential to be the coolest cat meme ever, but it’s not happening mostly because I’m not thinking of anything all that clever right now.

During times likes this, it’s necessary to set a deadline and get busy. So it done: one hour to make a meme and blog about it, and another hour I’ll spend promoting it. Two hours a week is the minimum amount of time I’ll spend on LoL Cat Research and I’m sticking to the program!

I couldn’t come up with anything for that whack MTVHottest hashtag, so I stick with #caturday for meow.

 

National Tequila Day is MEOW

Naitonal Tequila Day lol cat is funny

So I woke up and started checking the trends. There’s a lot of racism going on out there and it’s disturbing. Not trying to make light of that… #NationalTequilaDay is a different story.

I stopped drinking but I’m going to have to push this one so I can drive some traffic to this here #CatBlog …

The promo will be the usual. I’ll push the original #memepic during the day and then later on I’ll hit them with the demotivational. This blog, post and the two pictures took me less than an hour for everything. Posting it on Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, StumbleUpon, Google+, Imgur, etc. that will take another hour.

WhiskersWednesday is right meow

whiskerswednesday is right meowThat’s right folks. Today isn’t just Wednesday, it’s #WhiskersWednesday and if you want traffic for your #cat — you better read this.

Googling “the history of whiskerswednesday” got me nowhere. There is no history on it and that’s because we are making it right meow! Hi 5s ლ(=ↀωↀ=)ლ

 

 

 

 

Caturday is right meow #meme pic

I made a meme pic in less then 10 minutes, watermarked it with my social media handle @LoLCatResearch and the rest is history. I’ll be driving traffic to this here blog for centuries to come since #Caturday is one of the top search terms in cat blog land. Believe that.

Caturday is right meow … rocks the type of WTF that’s big with web surfers. I’m counting on it taking us to new heights:

GRANDE DONUT CARE

So I’m looking how to get traffic and what better way than with a Ariana Grande meme. It’s been a couple of weeks since I scored big off of the Bruce Jenner’s cat meme fiasco. Here’s how my traffic is looking meow:

LoL Cat Research traffic snapshot July 2015

 

As you can see, traffic needs a boost from another one of my killer memes, so I hit google trends looking for something to make light of.

Ariana Grande donut memeAriana Grande had been caught on a security camera licking a donut and then getting upset at an employee saying “I don’t like Americans.” or something to that affect.

You would think it’s no big deal, but apparently it is and now for whatever reason, she’s no headlining at the Major League Baseball All Star Game in Cincinnati in a few days.

I personally don’t see the big deal. It is a little gross that she licked a donut that someone would unsuspectingly eat. Thank God she’s not an outlaw biker with an open sore or something, but then again — she’s with her boyfriend and she’s all kissy kissy with that fool. Surely there shouldn’t be any criminal charges and everyone should leave Britney alone. Everyone except LoL Cat Research!

I’m going to push the pic on reddit, cheezburger, twitter, facebook, and maybe that’s about it. Then I will use the demotivational version after a few days. Hopefully that will get this forsaken blog some more traffic already.

Jabba the Hutt Cat

Caitlyn Jenner. The transformation has gained monumental attention for the Olympic star-athlete-turned-reality-show-dad. Creating a transitional cat meme lead to more traffic in one day than I ever got on any other site, and I’ve been making websites for four years now.

I made a quick tee shirt design on teespring.com and paid $200 in Facebook advertising for it. Not one order was made. Big waste of time and money but at least I can say I tried to monetize the overflow of traffic.

Jabba the Hutt CatTime to get back to driving traffic. I created a new meme for mew right meow. I checked my twitter analytics for the past month and took the pic that got the most traction to use as a #meme. Hope you enjoy it.

Spread it around your interwebs and buy a lol cat tee shirt for women today!

(^._.^)ノ what to do when you reach 3k tweets

I’ve blogged about twitter a number of times, discussing tactics and strategies that I’ve used or thought about using… Right here we’re going to go through a method I use when I maximize engagements — which ultimately lead to making money online. The better you build your network, the more money you will make. What we’re talking about here is not difficult, but like the great Warren Buffet said, “It is not necessary to do extraordinary things to get extraordinary results.”

twitter account screen shot May 18th 2015
saw that I made 2,999 tweets… time to take action!

I saw that my twitter account had 2,999 tweets. Why not celebrate the milestone of 3k tweets?! Twitter now offers analytics that are readily available. I used to use topsy.com — actually I still do, but when I’m just checking basic stats, twitter has it laid out right there for you. By the month, I can see my most influential follower, tweet with the most engagements, and much more.

I noticed many times the tweet that thanks followers garners the most from the twitter Gods. Tweet this:

TomHanks 4D #follow [mention as many followers as you can]
Make sure and include a picture of Tom Hanks.

Tom Hanks looks like “Thanks” or you can say T.Hanks

This kind of tweet is also great when you are starting out. It get’s favorites and RTs like crazy.

So I see that I’m going to post my three thousandth tweet and I made a meme for it, mentioned all of my friends and top-followers on twitter, and unleashed this masterpiece:

LoL Cat Research 3k tweets

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I pushed another URL I purchased that may be better than my main brand, “LoL Cat Research”… Not sure if that’s the way to go, but sometimes you just have to freak shit.

I mentioned as many twitter handles as I could and then in the tagging section for the picture, I mentioned as many heads as I could there. Looks like this:

Christopher Walken is fricken AWESOME!

If you are a fan of this here blog, you know that I’m all about masterful memes. And what better way to highlight this fact than to use the very best!? Christopher Walken is freaken AWESOME. This will probably be the cover of my first how-to book:

ultimate christopher walken meme pic

The sketch is often considered the best Saturday Night Live piece ever made, or at least ranks in the top 10. “More Cowbell” is hilarity at it’s best. It was written by playwright Donnell Campbell and Will Ferrell, who rocked-out as the fictitious “Gene Frenkle” cowbell player.

Jimmy Fallon is in it as well along with a plethora of famous comedians and actors. Although it debuted some 15 years ago, Walken can barely go anywhere in public without a stranger asking him for “more cowbell.” The Blue Öyster Cult, writers and performers of the song in the sketch, for a long time had trouble verifying who played the actual cowbell on the track.

I remember looking up info on the sketch and Wikipedia was saying that no less than three (3) people were arguing over who played cowbell on the Blue Öyster Cult smash, “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper”… Today, throwback Thursday (April 23rd, 2015), I looked it up again on wikipedia and found this:

Eric Bloom played it on a rerecording of the song some years later, but the original idea came from David Lucas, who went around the corner to his Warehouse Recording Studio on W. 46th St, got his cowbell, and went back to the Record Plant and played the part.

They also added that SNL sent an intern to buy a CD so they could get the producer’s name. Poor kid got the wrong album:

Christopher Walken portrays producer Bruce Dickinson (not to be confused with the Iron Maiden vocalist of the same name). Bruce was not the actual producer of “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper.” The song was produced by David Lucas,[3] who discovered the band and produced their first album, and also Agents of Fortune and Spectres. Sandy Pearlman[4] was their long time manager and lyric writer. Murray Krugman[4] represented Columbia Records. Bruce Dickinson was a midlevel manager at Columbia Records whose name appears on a Blue Öyster Cult reissue CD and a greatest hits compilation as the “reissue producer.” The SNL intern who was sent out to get the record got the Best Hits CD instead of the Agents of Fortune original CD.

“In Memory of Gene Frenkle 1950-2000” appears at the end of the video with a picture of Will Ferrell. Blue Oyster Cult claims that fans continue to contact them expressing their condolences even though the character never existed.

Below is an example of someone remixing the video. I’d say it was ALMOST good. The DJ/producer forgot just one detail but it’s the biggest detail… What we’re saying is what THE Bruce Dickinson is saying: the track NEEDS MORE COWBELL!!!

Learn how to make a meme into a demotivational to drive max traffic to your blog, BEOTCH.

So it’s been awhile since I’ve posted and traffic suffered of course. Time to figure out what to post about and since we’re all about #cute #cats and #comedy here, it would be easy to go into that again. Throwing cats into the comedy always seems to work, but this time we’re just going to roll with comedy.

~(=^‥^)ノ☆ Sorry crazy cat ladies, you’ll have to check back next week for that #pawsome content you’ve come to expect.

mad men boss drinking whiskey picI went to google trends and saw that the hit TV series “Mad Men” was trending like crazy. I compared it to another hot show “Empire” and the comparison was not contest: Mad Men wins by too much. There were other trends as well, but I figured Mad Men was the easiest to make fun of.

Step 1 Find an image: A google image search for “Mad Men” in quotes brought me a picture that was easy to caption. Step 2, was to go to cheezburger.com to use their advanced meme builder.

Since finding something clever was difficult, Step 3 was to google search “whiskey jokes” — the Mad Men picture features a misogynistic boss sitting at his desk drinking a bourbon neat — which just so happens to be my favorite drink! Only thing is, I never enjoy it at work because makes me mean and nasty,slurs my speech, and can even turn me into a dancing fool — all at the same time!! I found a joke about drinking at work that was perfect.

lol cat research - mad men meme picStep 4: Uploaded the picture to cheezburger’s advanced meme builder and typed the joke into the speech bubble. I watermarked with @LoLCatResearch on the bottom right and made it semi-transparent. The result is #awesome … true?

Mad Men Meme = MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!

Let’s party! But wait — we’re not finished and I’ll tell you why: After we rock a masterful mad men meme pic we must turn it into a demotivational poster. This way we get two jokes in one. It’s an effective content strategy because I can use a meme pic for awhile, and then transform it into a demotivational poster and push that around some more. Remixing content is all the rave in google SEO land these days. True that.

Eventually we can make a song and put it in a youtube video with this and other memes. Let’s write lyrics right now about the meme building process. Keyword research is telling me Hip Hop is hot again. Probably because the trailer just came out for the Straight Outta Compton. The movie will no-doubt be a guaranteed blockbuster nostalgia film showing the history of the rise and fall of the top Gangsta Rap group of all time: Niggers With Attitude (N.W.A.)

N.W.A. straight outta compton movie posterI’m a huge N.W.A fan and the solo careers that followed from the founding members, most notably Easy E, Ice Cube, and Dr. Dre. In recent news, former Death Row Records C.E.O. Suge Knight is on trial as a suspect for murder since he ran someone over with his SUV near the film set of the movie while it was being taped. All of this will probably lead to new content for the future. Believe that!

My only claims to fame is through several of my Hip Hop gigs and my being one of the top cat bloggers in the world who also produces and promotes live family entertainment events at HipTot.com. Because of this, we’re going to make a Gangsta Rap track right now. Let’s freestyle verse lyrics for almost a minute, then we’ll have two lines that will signify the chorus is coming. Check it:

  • If you want to learn, son; you must watch ┌(・。・)┘♪
  • Do what I say, non-stop till you drop ┌(・。・)┘♪
    CHORUS
  • This is how we rock
  • This is how we rock (pause)
  • This is how we rock BITCH
  • This is how we rock
    (〜 ̄△ ̄)〜 \(^▽^@)ノ (ノ ̄ー ̄)ノ

Ok enough rhymes everybody… time to go back to work. Or should I say, back to work making whiskey at work pics!!! Anyway, I switched to cheezburger’s demotivational poster builder but was disappointed by the shortcoming of them cutting off the bottom of the picture and thus making my @LoLCatResearch watermark severely compromised. I went into my gmail and found my way to the g-drive where I used google docs option to create a drawing. You could use “google slides” (PowerPoint rip-off) the same way.

There, it was easy to make a demotivational poster since I worked for eight years at JPMorgan Chase as a PowerPoint operator and I have incredible desktop publishing skills. I’m not going to tell you how I did it, but I’ll tell you this: you can do a search for free demotivational template downloads, where you can make what you want in any number of software platforms. I’m looking for hi fives ლ(=ↀωↀ=)ლ after you peep the final product:
