Most emailed stories: Instant word of mouth meter

imageMy favorite word of mouth measurement tool is the "most emailed stories" box on any web site. It gives you a true feel for what turns people on.  Here’s NPR’s list for 2007.

The NY Times keeps a running list of most email, most blogged, and most searched.  You should add this to your site too.
