10 Content Marketing Lessons from Our TOP 10 Most Viral Blog Posts

The Post Planner blog grew like crazy in 2013!

We went from 9k unique visitors per month in Dec 2012 to 155k/mo in Nov 2013.

A growth rate of 17x!

The most obvious driver of this growth was our consistent posting. We started the year posting about 3 posts per week — and ended it posting about 6 per week.

That worked out to a total of 180 posts — or about 1 post every 2 days.

Some of these posts did better than others, of course. Some got thousands of shares while others got fewer than a hundred.

Why?

Well, that’s what I’d like to explore in this article. Below I’ll list our Top 10 most shared posts of the year — and then analyze why I think they did so well.

In the process, I’ll try to expose some secrets about what makes a post go viral — and also offer some actionable content marketing lessons you can apply to your own blog.

Who knows? Maybe if you follow the advice here, you’ll see a 17x growth in your blog’s traffic by next November.  ;)
