BuzzSumo will then provide you with a list of influential sharers, it is not an exhaustive list of everyone that shared the article, but a sampling of people who shared this article 2-3 days after it was published.  In most cases, this usually covers a large percentage of the sharers. BuzzSumo will provide for each of your sharers:


  • Page authority

  • Page rank

  • Number of followers

  • Retweet ration

  • Reply ratio

  • Average retweets
