7 Types of Blog Posts Which Always Seem to Get Links and Traffic

Problogger has some great suggestions on how to write blog posts that attract traffic.

In summary, they suggest:

1. Resource lists. The useful list of resources requires two ingredients: time and a good eye for quality.

2. Lists of tips. Quantifiable lists of tips are really attractive to readers because they explain in just a few seconds what a visitors stands to receive in return for their attention.

3. Good advice. A quality advice-post generally sticks to one topic and provides in-depth info on it. In order to maximize the benefits, you’ll need to provide advice people are hungry for.

4. Arguing a popular point of view. People like to have their world-view affirmed.

5. Anything with a killer headline. When others link to you, it’s usually done in the space of a paragraph or even a single sentence. Bloggers don’t want to have to spend too long explaining what a post is about.

6. Q&As with high profile people. Interviews with well-known bloggers always seem to get links, comments and traffic.

7. Best-of lists. At this time of year you’ll see a lot of ‘Best of 2007′ round-ups, though best-of lists seem to work well at all times.
