😲 25k+ visitors in 2 days due to an article

Hey indiehackers 👋

Two days ago we published an article about the new version of Bootstrap. Since then the article became viral on social media, got featured on Google News and it has been distributed on many design and web development related websites.

Until now we got roughly 70 new registered account, 50 newsletter sign-ups, quite a few followers on our social media accounts and a few more inbound links from highly ranked websites such as sidebar.io. All organic with no ads!

Just to get a perspective this article gave us traffic in 2 days what we would normally make in almost one month. Huge deal! 🤩

      Thank you! In the meantime it also got massively shared on Twitter. If you search for #bootstrap5 most links will point either to Themesberg or a website citing us ☺️

    Nice work! I really like the look and feel of the website. I'm looking to create a similar website to sell in a different market and this might serve as an inspiration :)

    Nice work! Any action(s) you would attribute to its success?

      We did some keyword research, research on the article, we created a custom preview image and shared it on our social media mostly :) It took us about 3 hours for the whole process, but it was worth it!
