Some will tell you it is impossible to have content go viral. That powerful forces control the viral headlands. They are (controlled by powerful forces), but it isn't (impossible to have content YOU create go viral).
Here is a blow by blow of how Story Telling Is The New SEO trended enough to be included on the cover of Slideshare today (something I know about from an alert from friends here @Scoopit, Storytelling is bottom row 2nd from right).
Storytelling Is The New SEO Story
I'm presenting Storytelling Is The New SEO tomorrow night at @1918's (Phil Buckley's) SEO Meetup (more info here: http://www.meetup.com/RaleighSEO/events/100105202/.
I've been thinking about the "secret" implications of Google's algorithm changes. Navneet Panda helped Google see just how dirty our rooms have become and then they armed a Penguin to make sure we got the message and SEO life, as we knew it was OVER.
Storytelling as practiced by REI, Patagonia and others is the KEY to high engagement and Google is clear on want HIGH ENGAGEMENT from your content.
VIRAL = Good To Have POWERFULL Friends
If you want to have your content go viral it is good to have powerful friends. Storytelling Is The New SEO started going viral because of Scoop.it. The first shares came from my embed on Design Revolution. There are almost 400 shares from that embed as I write this.
I douibled down with Facebook, Twitter, G+, LinkedIn, Tumblr and Pinterest support, but Scoop.it got the ball rolling. Then, once Storytelling Is The Next SEO was trending Slideshare put it on their home page and blew it up (now over 2,300 views and 57 downloads).
I've had several posts go viral and there is always a powerful mentor in the loop. Storytelling proves, once again, it is important to have powerful friends (those you've met and know and others you may not know) to have content go viral.
Will be presenting Storytelling Is The New SEO LIVE tomorrow night starting at 6:30 at Phil's SEO Meetup. Find event details here: https://plus.google.com/events/c46hqgi89ig21oef90qafggoiho
