I’ve been watching Mixergy for as long as I can remember. Andrew Warner is a machine in putting out quality interviews nearly every working day. I sometimes think I might miss an important interview because I miss a few of them now and again.
I wrote some code that would find out how many times a url has been mentioned on Twitter or Shared/Liked on Facebook. I realized I could use this to put together a Top 10 Mixergy interviews based on social sharing.
So here are the top 10 in terms of Tweets and Facebook Likes:
If people are interested I can upload a bigger leaderboard.
Just to note, this is far from a perfect way of ranking the interviews – but it is *a* way. Some issues:
- earlier interviews probably didn’t have as many viewers so won’t have had as many tweets/likes
- newer interviews won’t have had as much time to get the clicks. This should hopefully be worked out if I did this again in 6 months time.
- bigger names to interview probably attract more tweets/likes. There are still many great interviews by lesser known people you should watch.
- I’d like to include some other signals – such as number of comments for each interview.
If you’d like me to run this against your site to figure out which of your pages are getting the most Likes/Tweets send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It can even be run against a competitors site!!! This is useful for two reasons:
1, See which of your content attracts sharing
2, Compare your site against your competitors, and see what content of theirs promotes sharing!
