Sometimes you post a blog and there seems to be chattering going on about it for days, weeks or even months. You definitely know that blog post was a keeper. However, there are ways that you can get more out of your most popular blog posts, providing you with even more readership. This could be turning it into a slide show, or using infographics, listing blogs or expanding on an older blog post.
1. Make it a Slide Show
There are an enormous amount of itemized blogs and you probably are the host to a few. This includes top ten this, top five that, and the number of reasons why you should or should not do something. If one of your most popular blogs happened to be one of this type, revamp it by transforming it into a slide show. This way, when someone wants to read about this topic, they can browse through the top ten reasons, one at a time.
2. Design it Into an Infographic
Secondly, you can also turn your most popular blog topics into interesting infographics. For instance, if one of your more popular blog posts discusses the top ten food chains in the United States, financially speaking, you can put this into a graphic that displays the information in a more user-friendly way.
3. Highlight in on Your Homepage
You can also consider placing a listing of your most popular blogs on the homepage. Many blogs are categorized by date, but you can be different. Say for instance, your top five blogs of the week, month, year, are something you want to focus on. Consider placing a list of these blog posts on your homepage. This allows reads quick access to what you want them to view.
4. Revise/Update It
Finally, one of the simplest ways to get even more out of an older, more popular blog post is to revamp it. If you wrote about the top ten songs of the year – last year – why not update this information to meet this year’s statistics, for instance. You could also consider updating any other types of blog posts as well. This is just an example.
Further, you can create a Part 2 of an original blog post, adding new information that was not available at the time of your original post. For instance, if your original blog post involves the top ten foods for losing weight, you know those have changed since you last wrote on the subject. Consider making a part two, where you discuss what health professionals are saying are the new top ten foods to lose weight. Information changes every day, so updating your older blog posts is an excellent way to drive in new traffic.
When it comes to blogging, you want to keep your information simple, straight to the point, yet interesting and entertaining to read. Your readers will likely come back more and more if you are providing them with up-to-date information on some of the most commonly popular topics. The more you blog, the more effective your blog site will be.
