I came across this fascinating post today on okdork.com, originally shared from BuzzSumo. The article discusses the findings of their research and social share counts from a whopping 100 million articles over an eight month period.
There is a cheat sheet available to download, but they break down their findings into the top 10 things that every site owner should do to maximise their content shares, increasing the chance of going viral.
I love the fact they phrase it using a cooking analogy or more over a series of speciality dishes containing the 10 special ingredients that will ensure your restaurant produces sensational Michelin five star meals!
Well once you munch away on the top 10 tasks, then they go on to offer much more insight on just how much sprinkling one should do.
