My neighbor who owns a Bible reenactment village, has a flair for PR. He equipped his donkeys with Wifi –probably the first in the world. Here are just some of the headlines he got.

When I bumped into him he asked me how he can take advantage of all the traffic. People focus a lot on how to do viral marketing but few people ask my neighbor’s question. In addition to the standard analysis of new keyword traffic, referrals, etc. I told him to put up an AB test.
A successful viral campaign is an opportunity to get AB test results fast. Just make sure you filter out the irrelevant traffic. Otherwise you may come to the wrong conclusions.
