Marketing Movie Website Traffic

Movie Website Traffic: IMDB NewsDesk

The life blood of a website is the traffic it receives but generating that traffic can prove difficult. One way of garnering traffic to your movie website is by writing content worthy of being featured on IMDB’s NewsDesk. IMDB’s NewsDesk is a way for a movie website owner to submit their website’s feed to IMDB. If after review, your movie website’s content is considered unique enough and acceptable, you will become a IMDB NewsDesk Partner. Do not expect to hear back from IMDB soon once your application is submitted. At any given time there are at least 200 open requests ahead of you (the number of people ahead of you is indicated on the application form). By becoming a NewsDesk Partner, your movie website is able to draft off of some of the millions of people per month that visit IMDB and hopefully raise the traffic level your movie website receives. Utilizing the tags from your posted article, your articles’ title appears underneath IMDB content and is hyperlinked back to the story posted on your website. The order in which they appear underneath IMDB content coincides with when you post your articles. The number of available articles is shown to the left (underneath NewsDesk), hyperlinked to a page where all the articles are housed. If you have questions about IMDB News and signing up for the service, read NewsDesk frequently Asked Questions. In the picture below, “NewsDesk” appears under “Plot Keywords”.

Was this a good heads up for you and your movie website?
