I know a little box appears saying "Share this link! [link]", but share it where? How?

5

Share it in a social manner, eg. Facebook, Twitter, Friends, Blog, Digg, IM, ...

By doing that you are publishing the question to a public outside the StackExchange community.

As for how, just copy the link and paste it. Perhaps give it some explanation so it's more than a link...


Announcer: Shared a link to a question that was visited by 25 unique IP addresses in 3 days.

Booster: Shared a link to a question that was visited by 300 unique IP addresses in 4 days.

Publicist: Shared a link to a question that was visited by 1000 unique IP addresses in 5 days.

  • How is SE going to know you did that? – John Oct 30 '10 at 1:02
  • The link contains an identifier which can be used to identify you and thus reward you when enough visits have been made to your link. – Tamara Wijsman Oct 30 '10 at 1:06
  • Cool, so how many visits do I need? – John Oct 30 '10 at 1:11
  • Publicist is 1000 unique IP addresses in 5 days, listed them in my answer. :-) – Tamara Wijsman Oct 30 '10 at 1:14
  • I thought that meant the question was visited by that many before you shared the link, but your answer makes more sense. :) – John Oct 30 '10 at 18:34
