Jamie Kane is the new online adventure from bbc.co.uk It's part game, part drama, part murder mystery...

I don't think its really about SEO but if you ask me it seems pretty close;

"Respond to clues posted on messageboards and sent to you in emails..." check

"Use our special e-messenger to chat to fictional characters" check

"Discover the secret websites we've created and the games that are hidden in them" fuck yes!

Interesting concept. I'm frankly surprisd the Auntie is doing it, seems far too web-savvy for them. Reminds me of the Google recruitment drive a while ago.

Yeah.

It did catch my interest though. Forgetting for the moment its the BBC that is pushing it I would look at it as an example of using the viral buzz to build traffic. Everyday we all sit here thinking we have seen it all on the www and everyday we see an idea that if we had only just thought about it.....millon $ homepage anyone?

Although creating a storyline similar may be an idea from the Mike Grehan school of web marketing, the BBC's idea should at least spark a few grey cells into firing up, there may even be an undiscovered area that us poor people could exploit. I found one today, killer and free, as a direct result of thinking different.
