Create a &#8220-friending&#8221- system, on the side of your prediction exchange, so that traders can share their readings, trades and tips with their web acquaintances and friends.

Invite some big bloggers into the system. It is not necessary that those big bloggers use the service.

Put the names of these bloggers as the by-default choice in the landing page of your &#8220-friending&#8221- system, so that each newbie is prompted to become a &#8220-friend&#8221- of those big bloggers.

– Of course, the number of &#8220-friends&#8221- of those big bloggers will grow dramatically by the minute. After a while, the numbers of &#8220-friends&#8221- of those big bloggers will become impressive.

– Then, what happens is that those big, infatuated bloggers will notice the big number of &#8220-friends&#8221- they got on that &#8220-friending&#8221- service (which they don&#8217-t use), and they are going to start bragging about that on their respective blog &#8212-linking to that &#8220-friending&#8221- website, and thus, sending more newbies to it, and injecting PageRank juice into it.

– The best scenario is one where that &#8220-friending&#8221- service is seen as prestigious, and there is a competition going on between the big bloggers about who is going to have the longest.

– Success guaranteed.

If you wondered why the big bloggers in the field of information technology are all talking about FriendFeed, then watch that video.
