Congratulations, Jack! I think this is a testament to clear headline writing, too. It’s a topic that a lot of people are curious about, and you present it in a straightforward way in the headline. It reminds me of a piece of advice from a master teacher: Ask a real question, not a “teacher question.”
The SEO effect also seems to apply to Twitter. I’m still picking up hundreds of clicks from Twitter on my viral clickbait article each week.
I think it’s still popping up when people search for “Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson break-up” on Twitter! It seems that some articles on Medium can have a very long tail.
