A new and fast-growing web 2.0 property – Scribd

Better known as the textual version of YouTube, Scribd allows users to share documents online and exchange their comments on submissions. The site also provides analytical data for your document, such as number of votes, views of the work, web referrer and geographic location. Below figure shows the people count over the past year.


As you can see, Scribd is growing at a tremendous rate and in recent months the traffic has doubled. Nevertheless, like YouTube, Scribd also leads to concerns of copyright issues. Harry Potter series get uploaded daily and actions are taken by Scribd for these specific publication timidly. Well, that’s not a big deal, as I am interested in the possibility of traffic generation from Scribd.  Some work will be necessary to test the effectiveness. That’s all for now.
