Truemors is Guy Kawasaki’s new site to help people a) have fun, and b) generate traffic.
Nothing too fancy: You post a true rumor, and other people can vote on it, and it links back to your web site. If you put up a popular rumor you get a lot of visitors.
There has has been assorted complaining that the site is dumb, silly, or useless. Which are adjectives that describe most of the fun things I do.
So I gave it a try. I posted 2 Truemors (vote for them!):
I got hundreds of hits to this blog, and I assume that as Truemors grows, it’ll do even better. It’s not going to make you world-famous …. but it’s definitely worth adding to your list of word of mouth tricks. Like all word of mouth, if you post something worth reading, people will share it with a friend.
