Why and How Do Videos and Posts Go Viral?

In my channel I have two videos about Snails, which you (and everybody else) are VERY much invited to watch.

Now – it is a thing I've been wondering about. Not so much regarding my channel (which hardly ever gets ANY views, even though I DO believe, my content IS high quality – CERTAINLY higher quality, than LOTS of the stuff getting millions of views, while consists of pure boring nonsense…), but about my [this] Blog.

See, I have that Blog for six years now; and all of a sudden, during April and May 2018 – curiously, PRECISELY when I was NOT updating it (due to being abroad and mostly offline) – it SUDDENLY experienced a MAJOR peak at views. All of a sudden, my Blog had received maybe 10 or 20 times as many views as before. Then it went down a bit, but on October 2018, it had suddenly tripled from that year's September, from almost 11,000 to almost 33,000 views. November that year had been almost as high – but then, again seemingly without any reason whatsoever, it fell down again, gradually dwindled till this month, I've only had there a bit over 2,000 views.

Now: ALL THIS, HAD ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO, WITH ANY ACTION I TOOK. It has all occurred with NO RELATION WHATSOEVER to me writing in it, sharing my posts, or indeed ANYTHING. Totally at random. There is also ZERO correlation, between post's quality and its popularity – not direct, not reverse, NONE. Just, this post or that, simply HAPPENS to get popular, without any possible explanation behind it. It seems UTTERLY random.
