Starting yourcan be a lot of fun and can give you something you can work on in your spare time as a hobby, or even use as means of making some extra money if you use the various ways of monetizing websites. If you like the idea of a fun joke website that people can visit when they just want a quick laugh, and like the idea of filling it with funny memes, videos and jokes that you and your friends have made up, then this can be a really enjoyable thing to work on. It can also be something that can get a lot of traffic if you do it right.
But what sort of thing makes sites like these a success?
Having a Gimmick Can Be Good
There are lots of memes and joke sites on the web, and some are funnier than others. Some are also more successful. If you want to give yours the best chance of success, it can help for it to have something that differentiates itself from the rest of the pack. A gimmick can be good here, and a good example of a comedy site that uses a gimmick well is lolhit.com which has a button you can press that gives you a random joke from the archives. This makes it a fun site to use and also quite addictive, because you never know quite what is going to come up when you press the button. Obviously don’t use this exact same gimmick because it has already been done but try and think of something that will make your site stand out.
Both for copyright reasons and because it will make your site more successful, you should make sure that every joke you post on there is of your own creation. If you enjoy making memes, or have some good ideas for comics, sketch videos, and other funny content, then it is much better to post this and have your site be unique rather than search for funny things to re-share on the web. If you just want to share existing jokes, you may be better off with a Tumblr page rather than a site you have to host yourself.
User Submitted Content
If you do not feel you can make enough content for a whole website by yourself or with your friends, a good way to get more things for your site as well as getting your visitors more engaged with your project is to allow people to submit their own memes and jokes to be published on your pages. This can be a good way to interact with your visitors, and it is also good if people can comment on or upvote things that they find on your website.
There are lots of ways that you can make yourfun for people looking for something funny to read on the web. However, be aware that this is quite a saturated market for blogs, and so you will need to work on making sure everything that you have on your site is unique in its own way and that it has some differentiating factors that make your site more appealing.
