Below is an interesting video that reveals the secret strategies behind many viral videos.
Some of the tips provided seem shady to me. What do you think?
* Applying "strategic" tags (fake)
* Paying bloggers to post content
* Commenting on your own video to elicit participation
* Placing a thumbnail image not related to the video for the mere purpose of "tricking" people tp click on your video.
Perhaps that's the difference from PR and marketing...
