My previous post on ‘Sex sells dont you think? Debunking the Myth of Using Sexuality to Gain Traffic’ shows that sex sells – it really increases web hits when you put a pretty or sexy picture on your social profile.
Intentionally I placed an incredibly sexy photo of a beautiful Japanese model and surprisingly, 51 people actually clicked on the photo! Look at the screen shot of my site’s page impression counter:
According to my web stats on SiteMeter, I had 184 unique hits on 7th and 8th November 2007. 51 people out of 184 actually clicked on the picture which is a staggering 27.71%! This means that 1 out of 3 people who visited this site actually clicked on that sexy photo!
Although this test is not 100% accurate, somehow it does show that sex does play its role in our community. On the other hand, this creates more questions on my head:
1. Would sex be more effective than social media marketing?
2. Is it TABOO to talk about sex?
3. How do you incorporate sex into blogging without offending the community?
