Missing the Social Tag Trick?

So, as all internet marketers “are saying” Social is the new signal to have.

Yeah its great to have trending topics and something go viral; you get a slurry of traffic to your server with a massive high bounce rate (normally) – if you pay for bandwidth you have to cover the cost of the traffic with not much of the traffic converting.


Maybe you are missing a trick; does any of this look familiar?
