Why MySpace And Wikipedia Pages Are More Important Than Ever
MySpace is over. Traffic is falling. Google's new enhanced music search has pushed my Wikipedia entry further down the page. Why should I care what a bunch og geeks write about me anyway, right? Wrong. First, both MySpace and Wikepdia still get massive amounts of traffic; and to the degree that you can control anything on the net; both offer opportunities for you to shape your own message.
Now, add all the new traffic that Google music search is bringing to these sites. MySpace and it's new acquisition iLike are, along with Lala, the primary providers of music for Google's enhanced search engine. That means that a lot more people will be visiting your related MySpace pages. Lala (which in my tests this morning delivered the music for most of my Google searches) draws all of its bios directly from Wikpedia.
Are your searches not delivering enhanced results yet? Be patient, their working their way through a very long list of artists. But get your MySpace/iLike and Wikipedi/Lala presence updated now and wait for a jump in traffic.
