Share Article launches to cash in on the MySpace phenomenon by offering users custom MySpace layouts. has just announced the official opening of its property geared toward free myspace layouts. According to Mashable, some MySpace related keywords such as ‘MySpace layouts’ now rank top 10 worldwide. The founders of have seen this metric as something enticing enough to build a website around.

Bill Rogers, co-founder, has stated that he will be using his 7+ years of internet experience as leverage to quickly boost traffic and search rankings. According to Rogers, “Our team will be focusing heavily on three main areas: viral marketing, social marketing, and SEO. We have no plans to incur any advertising costs.” Rogers mentions that “layout sites are springing up left and right, although because of the rapid growth of social networks the opportunity is still wide-open and viable.” Reported by Reuters, MySpace is now ranked as the number one website in America.

When asked about profitability expectations, Rogers states: “Development costs are extremely low due to our solid outsourced team, and as far as operations go, we are running at minimal costs. We plan to be profitable in by month two, and expect a $10,000/month revenue stream by December.”

Rogers believes that his expectations are nothing short of realistic, although also express’s a few concerns about “uncontrollable risks” in the business model.

This type of industry movement could act as a backup for UserLayouts to stand its ground if MySpace releases an in-house solution.
