I was approached by TrashyTimes.com. They had spent a lot of money on creating a website and hiring writers - in the hope of being a UK based right leaning, funny alternative to Buzzfeed.com. Immediately I could tell that the site had many problem - not least it's name. Unfortunately the name could not be changed, but the content, tone of voice and site design could.
I overhauled the site design and layout, and started to commission more viral style articles . Once my changes had been implemented site traffic increased from less than 100 visitors a day to an average of about 1000 visitors. I also started to seed certain articles which led to a large increase in traffic of over 20 000 new visitors for one article.
