When Bruce Jenner announced he was transitioning to a woman, news media dropped everything they were doing and focused on the story. LoL Cat Research heard that Jenner would get his own show and promptly came out with a meme for it.
Now all of sudden, there are TONS of hits to the site! People are searching for Jenner’s cat — and we have something for those searches. Ahh… meme pic mastery is paying off.
It’s really great to see that this site is finally getting more traction. I spend a lot of time and money on this site and I dedicate lots to finding homes for cats on death row as well as numerous other causes. You can support these efforts by ordering a limited edition, LoL Cat Shirt (girls’ and womens’ sizes only — makes a great gift) by clicking here. Do it right meow! (^._.^)ﾉ
The graph you see is what the “call me caitlyn” stats look like in this site’s analytics and keep in mind there’s about seven hours left in the day, so surely there will be more hits coming my way! I’m excited!! Just you look at that traffic surge!!!
Thanks for all those hits and keep coming back. I’ll post the “Transitional Cat” meme pic that lead to what will prolly be over 1,500 hits by the end of the day. YaY!!! Check it:
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.”
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:
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:
After checking out what’s trending online, it seems like the biggest thing going on right now is Bruce Jenner transitioning to a woman. Now it turns out that they are canceling Keeping up with the Kardashians and will instead give Bruce Jenner his own reality show.
The only episode I ever saw of said Kardashian show was when they got a financial advisor to have an intervention with Kim Kardashian because of her spending habits. She wasn’t having any of it but Bruce told her something like, “you have money now, but it’s not always going to be the case… what are you going to do when the checks stop coming in?”
Damn good advice Bruce and thanks for the intervention. For that you get a pawsome gif animation I found on Tumblr:
Most would agree and LoL Cat Research also agrees, that coming out is the way to go. You don’t want to be a closet cat. That leads to anxiety and depression that can lead to much, much worse. But what people don’t talk about enough is what to do AFTER you come out. If you want to crossdress, wear something nice. Don’t be one of those whack transitional cats in a paper bag or a potato sack. I’ll stop rhyming now… peace. (=^‥^)/
Oh and by the way, you can save cats on death row by buying a tee shirt right here.
If you listen really closely to the Stevie Wonder hit “Superstition”, you will hear how he outlines the ridiculousness of superstitious behaviour. LoL Cat Research is here to tell you that black cats are mistreated on Friday the 13th way more than any other day.
The masterful #meme you see posted above pays homage to the Friday the 13th Cat… Owners of black cats should be extra careful and keep their cats under close watch today!
Yesterday brought me a nice spike in traffic to my website based on the fact that my meme pics matched popular searches and my pics were watermarked with my URL. Katy Perry, the megastar who performed at the last Super Bowl halftime show, had decided that if you can’t beat em’ you should join em’… What I mean is that the pop idol had been acting a bit odd since a dancer in her crew wearing a shark suit got way more attention than she did. So why does this matter? Here’s why:
#LeftShark = vehicle for you driving traffic with meme pics
I made a meme pic and a demotivational poster (see right) and it brought me quite a bit of traffic just after the Super Bowl ended. #Pawsome !!!
I’ll take traffic however I can get it. Memes take a long time at first, but I can bust them out in less than 10 minutes and bang! Instant original content is created (Cheezburger.com has the best creator for memes. It’s super, super easy to use). Make sure you name the image and watermark it with your website. If you don’t, it’s all pointless. Of course don’t watermark pictures that you didn’t create or don’t have the rights to. You can also watermark with something other than your website. Any call to action you are trying to exploit will work — and work well!
Driving traffic with meme pics is one the top digital marketing strategies available.
First step is easy:
1. Find a trending search and make light of it. Think of a joke to write on a funny picture. Hurry though. Time is everything when it comes to driving traffic with meme pics.
2. Write blog post. Include your meme pic in your blog post the way I am here. Post links to your blog all around social media and message boards, and that’s all there is to it.
3. Promote it. This step is the most time-consuming but at least it’s all free. Here we go: Send a link to your website to all your email subscribers. Online news giants who publish their story (which is almost always “spun”), always have message boards where you can leave comments. You MUST definitely take advantage of. It means you will have to register with them. I know it’s annoying and time consuming, but you should by all means do so. reddit, imgur and similar sites are ideal places to post.
Let’s talk about the last two parts of my Left Shark traffic saga that has made life so fricken #pawsome I can’t even tell you. Katy Perry had been getting a bit rattled over the fact that a dancer in a shark suit stole the show from her. Someone started selling 3D print-on-demand Left Shark statues. Lawyers issued him a cease and desist letter and it made big news. Argument was briefly over who owns the intellectual property rights to the shark — the designer of the suit, or Katy Perry? The statues were pulled off the virtual shelves but not at a cost. Katy Perry began losing face in many people’s opinions because it appeared like she was jealous and cheap. The Scumbag Steve hat made it on to her in a couple of memes and so her lawyers pulled back a bit on the Left Shark enforcement circuit.
Fast forward to early March 2013, Katy Perry announces that she has a Left Shark suit for sale and it retails for an eye-popping $129.00 ( =①ω①=)
Guess what? Even more traffic is coming my way! WONDERFUL!!… If you were here, I’d want to give you a High FIVE — LoL Cat Research style — no JIVE. It would look something like this: ~(=^‥^)ノヽ(^‥^=ゞ)
OK let’s get serious. I checked my site’s traffic and this is what I see:
See that blast at the end? That comes almost entirely from me posting on CNBC’s message board. Here is the exact post:
If you look at the way I phrased my post, I made sure to be engaging while self-promoting in a way that doesn’t over do it. Last think you want is to get kicked-off a site for being a spammer. That’s why I try to make my posts rhyme, contain a joke, or just be completely ridiculous. Also make sure you’re not racist or sexist, homophobic or some type of extremist. In other words, don’t be a dick. If you are the strategy will fail. Think of this like a virtual office. You wouldn’t go into work, flirt with the secretary, curse-out your boss, and slap a bumper sticker with your logo on the side of the water cooler, would you?
All I can tell you is this: you can find your self getting reciprocal traffic in very little time. Also, if searches for what you made your meme pic about continues, waves of traffic back to you will follow. I hope my Left Shark story provides enough truth in value of driving traffic with meme pics. But you know what?
That traffic was yesterday.
Yes. We got to keep our eyes on driving traffic today. So what I did just before writing this, was the formula for driving traffic with meme pics: I used GoogleTrends to find a top search that was relative to my cute cats and comedy genre. It wasn’t long before I found crazy cat Kanye West was getting tons of searches. The traffice spike eminated from the release of his new song All Day.
I’ve gotten traffic from Kanye’s stunts and craziness several times in the past. I felt I should no more about the current news, so I listened to the track and thought it wasn’t bad. The beat is really great in an evil, hip hop kind of way. On the other hand, what he talks about in the song mostly belongs to the absurdly ridiculous category. Maybe I’m wrong, but really… I am not!
So anyway, I was having trouble coming up with anything to say, so I decided to go after traffic using a formulaic meme combo technique. Behold the masterpiece that will bring traffic to my blog for years to come:

You want a Kanye meme? You got it! The self proclaimed “loudest voice of his generation” is disappointed by yet another Grammy Awards ceremony. In case you missed his 2009 outburst, you must look it up for it’s high entertainment value. I can’t give it to you here because we’ve been through it plenty and it’s not my job to educate fools who dwell beneath rocks. Get out into the world or search it online, and only then should you continue reading this.
So what does all of this have to do with this here cat blog? Kanye is a crazy cat man! It’ true… behold my the latest LoL Cat Research meme masterpiece:
Kimye made it clear that they were not happy about the Best Album nod to Beck at this year’s Grammy Awards. Kardashian posted her WTF face on social media while Kanye jumped the stage but refrained from yanking the mic this time. Prince grimaced after the announcement (made an LoLCatResearch demotivational poster for that — see two blog posts ago). Beck took the high road in all this and even though I’m not a fan of his audio, he gets props here for his diplomacy. Interwebs can’t meme attack him for that!
One of my first, if not the first meme pic I made was in fact Kanye-related. There was a South Park episode where the kids made the funniest joke ever and they became world famous for that. Kanye doesn’t get the joke despite the fact that he is the greatest genius of his time, and proceeds to seek out the kids of South Park with his armed goons. They kill Kenny… Anyway, the joke only works if told to a heterosexual man:
Do you like fish sticks? yes.
Do you like fish sticks in your mouth? yes.
You’re a gay fish!
I took a picture of my kids’ cat “Oonda,” and made the following meme, which didn’t get much play on the web. Maybe the joke is too deep. Here it is:
We all know the feeling of what it’s like to watch the Grumpy Grammy Awards, or any awards show for that matter, only to watch someone win who really shouldn’t have. The most well know example of this is Kanye West drinking champagne and then jumping on stage to confront Taylor Swift and declare Beyonce as having one of the greatest videos of all time… OF ALL TIME! This has been discussed numerous times on this blog, most for the reason that it’s too damn funny. Now that I think about it, I’ll get into that more later. For now, we will talk about Prince presenting a Grammy and then visibly showing disgust. LoL Cat Research thinks this is fricken #pawesome
So as I said, Kanye has made the boldest move when it comes to beefing about his choice missing the nod. For that, we will shift out attention over to his heroics and away from the said Grumpy Grammy Awards. I don’t like autotune music or anything else Kanye does in the music biz for that matter, but I also admit that I haven’t listened to much of it. I do take note of the fact that he is one of the most famous people on the planet and that is great. Only thing is, I’m a God fearing religious phanatic and
I HATE ALL ILLUMINATI SELLOUTS.
If that’s you Kanye, you better hope Hell is not real cause if it is:
YOU ARE GOING!
Anyway, I think it’s pretty funny that if you google “Kanye Cat” you get a lot of funny pictures. It appears both Kanye and Kim Kardashian are cat people. I was going to post a whole bunch of pictures of them with cats, but I’ll save that for a future posting.
