So, I was thinking and I had this idea for how we can get more traffic to A-U. Here it its:
YouTube is HUGE. And the Hobbit videos are getting TONS of
views right now just like the LOTR vids got back in the day.
If we make Hobbit (and maybe even some LOTR) related videos it might
be a big help to getting traffic to A-U because tons of people are looking up the Hobbit
now on YT! We would make ourselves part of the very popular vid search!
We could make fan music videos, or picture slideshows and add links to
A-U in the video descriptions and at the end of the videos. Also I think
the release of the Hobbit is likely even sparking old LOTR memories for
many Ringers who will start looking up LOTR vids again.
I think if we did venture to make these kinds of videos that they
should be posted on a YouTube channel made specifically for A-U.
And if we have any A-U members with YT accounts they
could also help attract people to the site as well through their own channels and special Hobbit/LOTR vids.
If a main channel for A=U is made, it might also be good to make a few videos on what A-U is all about
and what is has to offer to LOTR/Hobbit fans.
I know I could at least make some picture slideshow videos. If I can get my
dvd drive working I could make some vids too.
We may not even need a ton of videos to be successful with this idea. But more would probably improve our chances.
So what are you guys thoughts on this?
If anyone would be willing to help out on this in any way, let us know!
