    Viral marketing is method for promoting your brand using the internet. Using viral marketing strategies have the ability to attract a large number of people who will be your customers for a long time. It is relatively inexpensive, but sometimes very effective method of brand promotion, it requires a lot of creativity.

    I disagree with both the above posters.

    Viral marketing is a buzzword for the sort of clickbait that gets posted daily in thousands of blogs. The sort of 'woman loses 50 kilos in one week' post. Readers are encouraged to share the content in the hope it goes viral. Which is rarely does. Therefore it is unlikely to have any long lasting SEO benefit. You may get your 15 minutes of fame and then just fade away...

    Viral Marketing in SEO means encourages individual’s people to pass on a marketing message to others. Simply One person catches the viral marketing concept, and then passes it along with to one or many other people. The Internet is the good option for viral marketing because of the ease and low cost of forwarding marketing message.

    Viral marketing where you promote your brand or business in the market, viral market it could be anything like video, image etc. In another way, you can define viral as a virus, when we think of a virus, we generally think of flu season, which passes on from one person to another person until an enormous amount of people have been contacting it.

    It seems like we are trying to discourage people from using viral marketing for SEO, which is probably a good idea. I like the idea of comparing it to a sickness, as nobody wants to get sick! Using viral marketing for SEO will do what fisicx said it will - it may give you a temporary boost, but eventually your rankings will fade away. You will then have to work even harder to fix what you did wrong, and then do it the right way.
