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.

How To Get Traffic To Your Blog Through Social Media

Comments Off on How To Get Traffic To Your Blog Through Social Media

This blog post will explain how the average blogger can get traffic to their posts through different social media techniques.
Get traffic to your blog

I’ve been blogging and writing articles online for around four years now, and I’ve learned through reading and writing, and trying every single method that sounded like it was working for someone.

When using social media to get traffic to a blog, video, website, or page, there are two basic ways you can go about it.

One way is to try to find targeted friends and followers, such as by following those who share your interests on Twitter.

You could do a search on Facebook for people, pages, or groups that mention the keywords you are talking about.

This is very time consuming, and most people don’t have the patience to spend hours a day trying to build a targeted list of social connections.

It may be worth it, and it is one of the methods I use, but for the most part, I just get thousands of random friends and followers, and due to the subject matter of my blog, it appeals to the general demographic of random people.

Using Social Media To Get Blog Traffic

I’ve been doing this for years, and I am still getting a lot of traffic from the Twitter followers I get from Twiends.

I have tens of thousands of followers on my main account, and whenever I write a blog post, I tweet it out to all of them, and if it’s a catchy title, or the right time of day, I can get over a dozen unique views for a single tweet.

This adds up to hundreds of unique views a day if you keep tweeting different pages, and it is probably the number one source of traffic to this site, and my blog posts and articles generally.

It does require spending a lot of time adding the followers, and a lot of time tweeting, which is why I offer that as a service: buy cheap Twitter followers.

For a very low price, I log into Twiends for people, and click the button, and I also un-follow those not following back using Tweepi.

This is best done in combination with a Twiends seeds package, as that works a lot faster, but it saves you money to follow people as well.

Apart from tweeting, I probably get the most traffic after that from Linked In groups. I am a member of about a dozen different groups with thousands of people in them, and if I have something really worthwhile, I share it with all of them.

I can get a lot of traffic from Stumble Upon, but I find that if I’m trying to rank a page on Google, I don’t use it much, due to the bounce rate caused by my followers quickly viewing and voting up my pages. This can be good for getting viral traffic.

I sometimes get some traffic from Facebook, by sharing with my friends, in relevant groups, and on my Facebook pages.

I get some traffic from You Tube, although I would probably say that Yahoo Answers works better than both of those sites if you find a targeted question to answer with a link to your post.

Learn how to use the search features on all of these sites, and learn the different ways to get ahead, and the pitfalls.

For example, on You Tube, you don’t want to just buy tons of random views or likes, as the bounce rate is very important for rankings of your videos.

Finally, I get a small percentage of the traffic to my site from Google, and from other articles and blog posts that are ranking on Google.

I find that it’s just as easy to try to rank a video, or a Yahoo Answers question, as it is to rank an article, and in some cases, it takes less time and effort.

Still, Google is a very important thing to think about for the long term traffic to your blog posts, and one of the things that plays an important role in SEO since Panda is a link profile containing a lot of social media back links.

Outsourcing Social Media Marketing

Comments Off on Outsourcing Social Media Marketing

There are many different ways to outsource different tasks that need to be done to promote your website or product online.

You can outsource content writing, back links, get someone to handle your pay per click advertising campaigns, and almost anything you need to do to get seen online.Outsourcing Social Media Marketing

I mostly handle social media marketing campaigns, and I can get you likes, followers,  views, subscribers, and more on any of the most well known social media sites.

These include Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, You Tube, Stumble Upon, Pinterest, Digg, and MySpace to name a few.

Basically, I know how to promote your social pages in a way to get random followers quickly, and I can also help you get targeted followers through a different type of campaign.

I can post for you on your page or profile, make friends with people for you, search for the groups that are related to your niche, or pretty much anything you want.

I work for somewhere around ten US dollars an hour, which is quite reasonable, even when compared to social media marketing managers operating from India.

I am in Australia, and am obviously very fluent in English, and can run a social media marketing campaign for your business across the board without too much supervision, or do almost anything you require.

I have a lot of experience in SEO, PPC, SMO, and all aspects of internet marketing, and I will be honest with you if I think that you will not make a return on investment from hiring me to do something.

Outsourcing social media marketing is a very important way to keep ahead of the competition, because there are only so many things a single person can do on their own, and the internet is a large place.
