Ben Huh, the proprietor of I can haz cheezeburger and other popular sites gives a lecture at WordCamp San Francisco on the Secret of Virality. I got most of the slides in the video, but if you want to download and read along, you can get the slides here.
Ben’s lecture talks about how you can achieve viral results, and why certain things work and others don’t. His message is great, and if your goal with your site is to grow your traffic like crazy, this video is going to be required “reading”.
Ben is on Twitter, so follow him.
Don’t forget that there are about 30 WordCamp videos here now from the last three WordCamp’s I attended, so there is an amazing amount of information if you are just learning WordPress. Specifically there are videos from 2007, and from 2008.
