I got a great formula, which is quite awesome and you can apply it if you want.
Lets say you want such and such number of views on your slide-share. Lets say 1 million. What you have to do?
step1- open your own website. Make sure it gets 100 views a day.
step2- open your slide-share, put N number of slide-shows. If N varies over time, views will vary accordingly.
How soon will you get a million views on slide-share? Its 1 million/(N*100*365) Years.
You got it, in general you get 1 million views in 1/(N*V*365) years, if you get V views from your website and N slide-shows are there on your slide-share and you have linked them from your website.
Plus realize 3 more things.
1. There is a factor of conversion from your website to slide-share. For me its 90%. My website is responsible for 90% of my slide-share views. Hence The views V is inefficient towards slide-share by 0.9, you get 1 million views in 1/(N*V*365*0.9) years, slight delay.
2. These things are statistical, they take time to settle into constant numbers, such as factor N, is varying, you go on increase number of slides uploaded, and there must be some time for that change to reflect, during which other changes are taking places, this is because statistics are inherently quantum mechanical, they take large numbers to be multiplied before showing their character. Everyday makes a change of .3, you need 1 month to reflect significant changes during which you have changed your stance from writing good quality articles to frivolous crap.
3. Once you see things are effected this way, simply increase, N, V and i (i = 90% say) ! Make good quality content, relate things properly and push from one end, or even both or more.
