SiteHoppin.com, a site that let's you surf the web like an iPod and offers free web traffic services, has just launched an online Beer Stock Market where any internet user can invest and become co-owners of the company.
The Beer Stock Market, dubbed "Internet User Venture Capital" by the creators behind the concept, is an "online" stock market where users can buy and sell Beer Stocks. When a user buys a Beer Stock, they automatically get a Beer Stock Page, which consists of a web "traffic" page that gets shared percentage of the total web traffic received by SiteHoppin.com.
Unlike many traditional ideas that either sold or exchanged web traffic, SiteHoppin's new stock market simply allows any person in the world to get a share of the pie, the total amount of the web traffic received by the site itself.
With the Beer Stock Pages, a user can receive the shared percentage of the site's traffic by embedding their website into the Beer Stock Pages.
The Beer Stock Pages come with a user-friendly Beer Stock Dashboard, where users can buy/sell their Beer Stocks and control the content of the Beer Stock Pages such as embedding their websites.
SiteHoppin is currently receiving an average of 200,000 views per day. The company spokesman Max Lee says, "Currently our growth is only limited by the number of servers we run and how much advertising we do. Currently, we are running at over 90 percent capacity with our servers and we have practically zero paid advertising. With more money invested in our servers and advertising, we are expecting an exponential growth of the site's web traffic. We are currently experiencing more traffic than our hardware can handle, yet we do not have funds for new hardware."
"Instead of running to traditional Venture Capital funding like most Web 2.0 companies, SiteHoppin has created their own investment stock market where any internet user can invest as little as a dollar."
Currently, during Round 1 of their IPO (Initial Public Offering), 10,000 Beer Stocks are available and the Beer Stock Market prices are at $10 per vowel and $1 per non-vowel letters. Prices will increase/decrease as the web traffic of the SiteHoppin grows but market prices will never fall below their current IPO prices.
The Beer Stock Pages will not only increase in value due to the increase in overall site traffic, but they will also increase in SEO (Search Engine Optimization) value over time. Each Beer Stock Page gets a unique URL such as http://SiteHoppin.com/Brew, loaded with RSS feeds aggregated daily from Yahoo News, Google Blog Search, YouTube, Del.icio.us, and Flickr. The SiteHoppin Team have also SEO optimized all the Beer Stock Pages so the user doesn't have to do anything except keep it to make their Beer Stock rise in SEO value.
Any internet user can now buy into the new Internet User Venture Capital without having to go through lawyers or brokers.
SiteHoppin itself is a "Browser-within-Browser", allowing any users to sites and get free online exposure through their "Site Hopping" system. Users can also hop, rate, and submit/bookmark sites they find interesting.
Currently, SiteHoppin is receiving an average of 200,000 page views per day. The site is steadily increasing in web traffic and number of users through their online community where users can "hop" to random interesting sites and participate in contests like King Of Hops to win free Beer Credits, which can be used to get free traffic to the users' site.
