Wow, there's a lot of ways. Usually what I see on content gone viral, is that all of them triggers some emotion in people. Just an example, did you hear about the Danish 'Voteman' campaign? That went viral pretty fast, and caused both outrage to some, and a lot of laughter to others. Personally, I laughed.

Take a look at the movie "How animals eat their food". It's absolutely hilarious, and has well over 100 million views.

Another way, probably less effective but nevertheless, provide people some information they need, but give them just enough to keep them hooked and wanting more. Then offer the rest if they like, share, tweet or whatever your page. That could potentially cause a snowball effect, where people see the share, click it and then share to get the rest.

Google trends is a good source of inspiration for finding trending content that could go viral.

Although as with any quality content you're going to have to add your own value/spin to a topic and not just re-hash what someone else has said.

I agree with Drepal. Creating a content is not a rocket science but to make it viral is really tough. So only latest and trendy topics will make your content viral.

Hi,

Some people are looking solutions for their problems, other need to be more educated ...

What I experienced & noticed that most of viral content have few common things

1) emotions attached or emotional
2) need of product
3) Unique
4) Hilarious
5) Never seen before
6) very short or very detailed
7) targets large no of audiences.
last but not least some blockbuster music

Ready to hear your views what you think guys.

It is very difficult to create a viral post. You can have this amazing creating but to get it viral you need something more. For one, following the trend with your own touch can get it viral.

A viral post is kind of like lightning in a bottle. It takes good content and luck. A friend of mine had a youtube video that had virtually no views for about 4 months. Then one day it shot through the roof and went into the millions of views. He hasn't been able to repeat that since. I think it's content, entertainment (whether funny or emotional or even educational) and luck.

Viral content is easy, just create something that is easy to understand, extremely entertaining, and easy to share.

This is why "demotivational" posts and cat pictures own the Interwebs. They are simple to understand and easy to share via social media. Humor is a great vehicle for emotion, but fear is even better.

So pick an emotion that's key to your main message - either fear or humor - and figure out a simple way to share it with the world. You'll also probably want to spend a few bucks in "seeding" it with viewers, but if the content is clever, your "viral" content will become the latest "Facebook" infection.

A viral post means a unique and interesting posts which readers want to read and not posted on any other blog. One can create a unique post only by a lot of search on Google because there is a very high competition these days. Every good thing to be done needs some hardwork. You can post on the latest hot topics by keeping you sharp eyes on everyday's hot affairs. Well, Google Trends is the best way to get latest topics to blog on.

In the past years, I have learnt one thing that nothing can be made viral with efforts.

Many people here way that if you do quality then your post will be viral, in my case that is not true, you create what every you do just focus on marketing, do long term efforts to market your post.

Maybe this link can help you out regarding on how you go viral. I say something witty and cleaver video/post will make you go viral, but then again, the audience will decide if your post will go viral.

Viral content generally has to be contradicting within the subject chosen to discuss. Or it has to be an issue that creates participation in mass. It can be common interest topics, like weight loss or making more money.

But, there is no certain forum for creating viral posts. Even the creaters of such posts had no clue at the time of writing that their posts would go viral

The best ways to write a viral content:
*Start with the problem or the idea you will write about "come up with a keyword".
*Ask yourself the questions which are related to the keyword and which your targeted readers will ask when they come to read your article.
*Write the article and cover all questions and their answers.
*Make your article easy to understand.
*Add important images and videos related to the topic of the article and which will add value to your article.
