It happens almost every day, even with adds blocker you have articles about how you can easily earn a lot of money from home. I usually ignore those articles, but today while I was surfing, one of them did catch my attention because there was the name of my town in it.
Translated it means : a housewife at Saint Antoine la villageoise sur Dordogne (no that town doesn’t exist) earns 8,350€ per month and you won’t believe how !
First of all, I hate this kind of title because it sounds like the viral sh*t you have on Facebook like : “this father jumps from a cliff while holding a bike, but when you will discover why he did this, you will burst into tears !”.
Then the name of the town, the content displayed on the page depends on some parameters, in that case the location of the visiter. This parameter is passed through the url in that case and therefore can be easily modified (that’s why the title says Saint Antoine la villageoise sur Dordogne, I modified it).
The name of the town is used in order to catch the attention of the reader ( and it worked on me), because you know that it is something that is happening right next you, maybe that you neighbor is earning thousands of euros per month without moving out of his couch.
The title is not the only thing interesting I found in this article, let’s analyse some others aspects that can be found in it, and then I will give my opinion about this kind of “journalism”.
