How To Make Viral Content For Social Media

How To Make Viral Content
It is not easy to make content that goes viral on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Stumble Upon, You Tube, etc, but it is possible to do, and a lot of people focus on trying to make that happen, more than anything else.

A viral page is a page that gets spread through word of mouth, through social shares, and if it works, it can work a thousand times better than ranking on the first page of Google for a minor search.

The number one place where things go viral is You Tube. A good funny or bizarre video can spread through the internet like wildfire, and it doesn’t take all that much to give it that chance to burn.

It has to be something that evokes an emotion, and the best way to evoke emotion is through humor, and people think things are funny that are unusual, somewhat bizarre.

For example, take a look at this video I made today, it’s called Oh My God! What Is That!

Making Viral Content

You may like that video, or you may think it’s utterly useless, and that’s the sort of chance you take when you try to create viral content.

Some people are good at it, and others aren’t. Some people will like a certain video, and others won’t like it, or they will have different opinions about two videos that use the exact same formula.

It’s not a science, it’s an art, and the only way to get good at it is to do it, try as many different things as you can think of, and hope for the best.

On that video, I didn’t even put a link in the description, and you might well ask why I even made the video at all.

It isn’t selling anything, it’s not got a link to anything, it’s not even saying anything slightly important, or relevant to anything.

But, I’m hoping that people will like the video, and that if people see it, they might share it with their friends, and then those people might possibly share it with their friends.

It’s the sort of video that could take off and get tons of views, and if it doesn’t, well it’s just another video to add to the rest.

If it did get lots of views, like a million views, then that might mean lots of subscribers, back links to the video, comments, a better channel rank, and perhaps views on my other videos, because the links to my other videos appear in the sidebar.

Every video I make helps my other videos rank, so long as the videos I make are entertaining, and have a good bounce rate.

If I continually make videos that people don’t want to watch, then they will all start to lose ranking and views, and that’s what I don’t want to happen.

I wrote an article today on Knoji as well, called what do people want to see online? which also talks about how to make viral content for social media sites like Stumble Upon.

I have a blog where I post my favorite You Tube videos, which aren’t mine, I just get the embed code for things that I find entertaining enough to go viral, and write a short description underneath.

That whole site has a banner ad to this site, and it looks inconspicuous enough to not affect the popularity of the pages I’m making, which are just the best videos on You Tube.

That’s just one example of how to make viral content easily, although you will do better if you make your own videos. Lots of my Stumble Upon followers just take Rage comics and publish them on their blog.

They don’t seem to care at all about Google rankings, and for the most part, they seem to do pretty well by just taking someone else’s stuff, putting it on their blog, and sharing the page with all their friends.

I would advise you to be a little careful about that, as photos do have copyright issues, (unlike You Tube videos), but that’s the sort of things you can do if you don’t care much about Google.

Viral content is pages that get millions of views, and it’s not hard to find out what sort of pages go viral, and that will give you an idea of what you might want to be making.

Social Media Links And SEO

Comments Off on Social Media Links And SEO

So if you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve realized that a lot of the traditional back linking methods that used to work are not working so well, and that the future of SEO is going to probably involve a lot of social media links.Social Media Links And SEO

The reason why social media back links are going to play an important part in ranking in the future, is that any really good site will have people linking to it from their social media profile, or sharing it with their friends.

I’m not just talking about sites that are trying to get ranked either, it could be someone makes a You Tube video that they think is funny, and they don’t know the first thing about algorithms.

People aren’t going to link to it in huge numbers from blog posts, they might tweet it, share it on Facebook, Google Plus, perhaps on Stumble Upon, and it might get embedded into video blogs.

The other thing is, like with You Tube videos, the bounce rate of all web pages are going to be important.

Are Social Media Links Important In SEO Today?

Google is trying to weed out spam, and the only real way they can do that is to punish sites that have a lot of unnatural looking links leading to them, sites that appear to be written badly, or have a low amount of text on the page, and sites that have a high bounce rate.

The things they want to encourage is sites that have a more natural looking link profile, which includes a lot of social media links, (but not so many as to look unnatural), and links from high quality, original, well written content on sites with some authority.

Can you manufacture a whole bunch of social media links? Yes you can. You can join sites where you can swap tweets, or pay people to tweet or share your page with their followers.

Sometimes these people are low paid workers with fake accounts from India, and other times they are real accounts. If you look harder, and pay more, you can get higher quality accounts with a larger following of real people.

If you want to pay ten cents, (and I offer this as a service), you can get a cheap random tweet to someone’s account. If you pay twenty cents, you can get a cheap random tweet to an account with at least a few hundred followers.

If you pay thirty cents, you can get a Facebook share to a random account of someone likely in India, or for forty, you can get a few more American or UK accounts among the mix to share your site to their Facebook page.

For a bit over a dollar, you can get a tweet to twenty or thirty thousand people, and for ten dollars, you can get a broad share to all of my tens of thousands of social connections, which creates a lot of traffic, and is good for SEO.

An SMO campaign might cost as low as ten dollars, or up to a few hundred, or a few thousand. It’s up to you how much you want to spend on it, but I know how to do it, and it does work.

Basically, I know a range of different ways to get people to share your site to their Facebook friends, or to their Twitter followers, and you get what you pay for.

I use a variety of different micro job sites, social sharing sites, and I can deliver what I promise, which is links from social media.

What I never do is guarantee that it will produce results, of either traffic, or rankings, because Google updates their algorithms almost every day, and what might have worked this month, might not work the next, but I will say that it hasn’t hurt my site, and I do get most of my traffic from social media.

I can make you a Facebook page, make you a You Tube video, get you Twitter followers, or any number of different things, and I am open and honest about what I know, so send me an email if you’re interested in links from social media. My email is in the sidebar, and I can send you my Pay Pal details from there.

The Best Way To Use Social Media For Marketing

Comments Off on The Best Way To Use Social Media For Marketing

What is the best way to use social media for marketing, or is that a question with more than one answer?

There are so many different social media sites, and so many different ways to use them, but I think I can explain in this blog post the basics of how to develop a good social media marketing strategy.The Best Way To Use Social Media

To start with, you have to work out if your product or business has a widespread appeal, meaning there is a good chance that at least one percent of the general population would be interested in buying it if they saw it.

If your product does have a widespread appeal, then the best way to use social media for marketing would just be to get as many random people as possible to see your link, page, video, or website.

I find that getting thousands of Twitter followers can be a great easy way to get traffic, but you have to understand that it takes a very large volume of followers to get a small amount of views per tweet.

For example, I have about twenty two thousand followers on my main account, and adding about a hundred a day, and if I tweet something that might interest the general demographic of random people, I could get about ten unique views give or take for that tweet.

Sometimes it’s none, or sometimes I could get lucky and get dozens of clicks on a link I tweet, but then I keep tweeting through the day, and end up getting hundreds of hits to my sites.

I also use Facebook, You Tube, Linked In, Stumble Upon, Yahoo Answers, The Warrior Forum, Google Plus, Pinterest, Digg, and a number of other sites to get social traffic, to varying degrees of success.

The point is, my product has a fairly widespread appeal to internet marketers, who make up a large portion of the demographic of my friends and followers on these sites.

Using Social Media For A Targeted Audience

It can be quite hard to get Twitter followers who are specifically targeted to a product that only interests a small percentage of the population, but it is possible to do.

You can try following people who share your interests, by doing a Twitter search, or by using software like Tweet Attacks, (which I don’t use), and hope they follow back, but that can be time consuming, and may not work at all.

When you are trying to reach a very targeted audience, you really have to use SEO or pay per click advertising to reach them.

SEO is not just search engine optimization on Google, but it’s also important to be at the top of a You Tube search, or a Facebook search.

Nevertheless, Google is the most important search engine to think about. I’ve found that it can be just as easy if not easier to rank a Facebook page for a low to medium competition search if you can get the right title and username for your page, and do some other things, like get lots of likes.

For example, take a look at my most successful Facebook page Affordable Social Media Marketing Services.

While it’s true that the exact match search for that phrase only gets a dozen searches a month, I am ranking first on the first page of Google for that, and close to the top of the first page for related searches, such as affordable social media marketing.

I managed to get the exact match URL for the title, and that helps a lot for SEO when you have facebook.com/anything, so long as you do a few other things, like update the page regularly, make lots of custom tabs, add photos, get likes on the page, and on your posts.

The same sort of thing is true for You Tube, you have to update your channel with videos regularly, get subscribers, likes, views, and shares, but all in a natural looking way, and then Google might rank your video well.

If you look at a Google search on “God”, there is a Twitter profile on the first page of that search, and that’s a pretty amazing achievement, given how much competition there is for that search.

Social media is a huge part of SEO these days, whether it’s the amount of times people share your website, or the amount of times people like and share your Facebook page. Both can end up highly ranked on a Google search, and one is intricately linked to the other.

Anyway, I specialize in social media marketing, and I can get you followers, likes, views, subscribers, back links, shares, pretty much anything you can think of, at a reasonable price, so send me a message at rowan@professionalsocialpromotion.com to talk about the best way to use social media for marketing your business.
