If you’ve never traversed along the road to viral content, where can you get started? What is makes good viral content? I’ve talked briefly about great lists. I’ve talked about videos. I’ve talked about pictures. Now I’m going to talk a bit more about six solid foundations upon which you can build viral content and I’ll illustrate how they’re used in today’s social media.

Good question.  I think that a healthy mix is best.  You won’t please everyone.  Some people like video; others hate it.  (As for me, I have to get in the mood.)  Others don’t like getting hooked on games and some are addicts.  A lot of people like lists, but sometimes that could be a lot of information.  There really is no best answer becasue everyone is different.

This is an incredibly detailed post, and coming on the heels of SMX Social -- it’s a great primer for those looking to get more involved in link bait...

Great List, but why oh why can’t people put Numbers beside the headings in lists!!! Puh-lease people do this... it’s such a simple usability addition :)

Gamermk, good point - but I hate how Wordpress changes the formatting when I do that.  I’ll keep it in mind for next time though; thanks.
