AGORACOM Story Takes Top Spot On Yahoo Buzz On First Day!

Posted by AGORACOM at 7:05 PM on Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

AGORACOM is very proud to announce that our story covering the Aurelian Resources Online Shareholder Revolt has taken the top spot on Yahoo buzz today.

As of 7:40 PM EST the story is ranking as follows:

#1 in Business Category with 118 votes (#2 = 60 votes)

#9 in All Category with 118 votes (Only 164 needed to get to pass Obama/McCain story in spot #6)

This is an incredible achievement and full credit goes to the entire Aurelian Resources self named “Crew” on AGORACOM. After posting the story this morning at 6:50 AM, the Crew mobilized, spread the word and began to the story.

This also serves as another example of the power of community. Specifically, a properly fun financial community in which investors are given the opportunity to amalgamate and communicate the pro’s and con’s of a company within a moderated environment free of spam, profanity, bashing and hyping.

Finally, this achievement is truly special because it took place on the very first day that Yahoo buzz was opened to all publishers. We’re going to relish this one!


p.s. For those of you wishing to vote on the story and buzz it up on Yahoo, please find enclosed the following instructions that we posted to the Aurelian HUB:


Good evening to you all. Yahoo Buzz! is a brand new feature released by Yahoo (just last night) in which users are able to submit stories.

The power behind the system is that the most popular stories are promoted to the FRONT PAGE of Yahoo, bringing millions of eyeballs to the story. If everyone votes up the story, it could provide greater attention than anything we’ve done to date.

I submitted the Aurelian story this morning and it is now the #1 “Business” story on Yahoo Buzz with more than 120 votes. It has graduated to the actual “Top Buzz” page as editors at Yahoo authenticated the story.

As such, I ask that each and every one of you (that have not yet already done so) to vote for the story. If you already have a Yahoo ID, it is as simple as the green thumb votes here on AGORACOM. If you don’t have a Yahoo ID, please take 2-3 minutes to create one and vote on the story.

Look for this button when viewing the Aurelian story and click on it to register your vote.

Spread the word!
