I’m very proud of this one, my team here at Melbourne SEO Services had a go at creating a fun viral video. It’s pretty funny, watch it below:
What’d you think?
We’ve got a plan as to how we’re going to promote it but I still think I need your help. If you can give it 5 stars on youtube.com, twitter it, dig it, facebook it, or any other social media promotions… I’ll be forever grateful and I always remember those who help me. Hell, if you’ve got a blog and make a posting about it, or anything a little more substantial, I’ll even paypal you some $ to say thanks.
If you’re not in a position to help, that’s cool too… keep an eye on this blog and I’ll make a video about how it all went and how we promoted the hell out of it.
Your SEO coach,
Ps. Help us make this the best viral marketing video ever 🙂
PPs. Here’s a snippet of the $360 press release we’re posting on PRweb.com tomorrow morning…
Google Vs Yellow Pages New Survey Data
New survey data released shows 53.85% of people never use Yellow Pages while a staggering 100% of people quoted use Google everyday to find products and services they are looking for.
Melbourne, Victoria, (PRWEB) 6th April – 2009 – A lot of fuss has been made over the Yellow Page and whether or not print is still viable. Obviously the Yellow Pages will do everything in their power to demonstrate their effectiveness, while online-players will have you believe the opposite. So who’s right?
In a recent survey conducted by Melbourne SEO Services, a cross section of people from the streets of Melbourne were asked a series of questions to help answer the question. Questions asked included “How do you search for products and services you need?”, “What search engine do you use most?”, and “How often do you use Google?”
The results were clear, with 53.85%, of respondents saying they haven’t used the yellow pages in the last year, while 100% of respondents said they use google every day. One respondent even commented “I reckon the yellow pages is obsolete: why would you spend money on the yellow pages when they’ll just as easily find you on Google?”

Nice work! Very entertaining.
it was very interesting to read http://www.davidjenyns.com
I want to quote your post in my blog. It can?
And you et an account on Twitter?
The above press release text has an inconsistency, mentioning 57.14% in the summary and 53.85% in the main content. Keep up the good work!
Whoops… not sure what happened there. Thanks for the heads up.
All I could think of is how great this is for the planet. When Yellow Pages realizes it has lost the battle and stops publishing, how great will that be for all the trees that will be saved! Yeah for the internet.
Personally, I have realized that only few people are using Yellow Pages nowadays since most of us prefer to just do an online search instead.
Like Elaine, I’d love for them to stop printing that much if that will definitely help save more trees.
By the way, I have seen a good number of other online publishers posting this video and quoting the results as well on their blogs. 🙂 Can’t wait to see more of those in the coming days. 🙂
I once worked in a company that prints Yellow Pages in different parts of the globe. I believe they are slowly transitioning their business, and now have transformed their company offering online advertising solutions. It’s Yell Adworks by the way. Goes to show how powerful the web (not just Google) in making print obsolete. 🙂
Hey MJ, I also heard recently that Yellow Pages is after all already online. Don’t know where I read that, probably a Youtube comment— the person mentioned he searched for something and it was Yellow Pages online that popped into the results page. The only thing left to see is if YP will be able to make a smooth transition to the web.
I like the overall feeling from the Video.
My tip: Keep it shorter, there is quite a bit of footage to be cut and left out.
Viral – very short and to the point.
These are my ’20 cents’
Keep up your motivating work
