5 Tips to Writing Your Most Popular Blog Post Yet

Posted Wed, February 20, 2013 by Julie Short

Whatever point you’re at blogging wise, whether you’ve just started blogging or you’ve been at it awhile, one popular post can generate a traffic boost to your site and help you land unique leads for your brand. Ideally, a popular post will trigger visitors to explore more content on your site and blog. 

A Headline News Related Topic
If your brand has an angle on something popular going on in the news, write a blog around it. This topic is in the news and already instant web traffic. If you choose a headline with the right keywords, you increase the chances your blog will land in front of unique visitors to your brand. Don’t just reprint the news tho. Fuse your professional opinions and insight into the news of the day and you’ll give readers a spin they’ll be interested in. 

Give your title a lot of thought because it’s key to your article being found and viewed. As I mentioned before, using the right keywords help your blog land in front of people researching the topic. Once you’ve decided on a topic, you’ve got to imagine what phrasings a person might use to find this topic on a search engine and implement those keywords into your blog’s headline. Also, the title is influential because it convinces people to click on your blog. You can’t just fill the title with keywords and wait for the blog hits to appear. The keywords have to appropriately fit into an attractive and intriguing title. 

We live in a fast, visual world. Posts that are attractive to the eye and well formatted will influence a reader completing the post or sharing it. Placing applicable images or even a slideshow into the blog will help make your post a visual feast for the reader. 

Post Structure
It’s important your posts are readable. Separate your points so they’re easily readable. If your blog post is one long chunk, readers will often take one look and leave the blog. Utilize bold and italics. Make your points as quickly as possible and try to end the post with a call to action. Give readers a reason to interact with the post, either by telling them what to do next or by encouraging comments or sharing it for you on social media.

A Unique Perspective
Hundreds of millions of blogs exist. You’ve got some steep competition, but the good news is there’s only one you. Try to be authentic to yourself in your writing and set yourself apart from similar blogs. Have fun with your posts. The trick is to get your message across and remain relatable. Special views, facts or quotes invites people to share your blog..
