There are many reason why a blog post can went viral, and the main reason is the topic of the post , getting to use the most perfect topic for a post sometimes makes people wants to read it.I once had a blog post that went viral. The blog was about head scarf ban in the western world. Head scarf is a head covering used by Muslim women. Just in a month thw article gained 30k views and 1000 comments, and none of the comment was span. The only reason for the post going viral was due to being in controversial topic.
It is because the blogger of the fake news site is using clickbaits. People are curious when they see strange news and thus are forced to read . You should also know that there is a difference with what you want to write and what people wants to read.I have my own blogs and ever since I created those blogs I was already observing and studying how a blog can go viral. How can a blogger be popular that readers would post their blog in social media as a means of spreading the blog and gaining readers. I have to admit that I cannot do that. It is hard to sell a serious blog. One blogger here who is very popular posts a blog of fake news. It makes me wonder why people are reading that blog when it is obvious that the blog for the day is fake news.
I only have two numbers of factors that can make a a blogging site go viral online, the first is by creating a quality content and post which will make people want to read it and the second one is creating fake topic which will draw people's attention.Depending on a number of factors, fake and real trends can make yoyr site go viral. You just need to know how well to use them.
You need to flow with the current wave , and by that i mean you need to be writing shocking news and also current news to makes people comes to your blog and makes it popular.IN order to make your blog go vital, you will have to publish on current topics, controversial topics, and the topics that is interesting and also useful.
