  • Hi Sathish,

    You have written a nice information for the bloggers. Getting the right topic to write as the blog posts is really an art and we should do it in the correct way to catch the targeted readers.

    I mainly focus on Roundup posts, In-depth reviews, Comparision posts, Discount Posts and yes, informative how-to guides as well.

    Thanks for writing the helpful data for the bloggers, keep doing your great job!

  • Hello Sathish,

    You almost covered all types of blog post methods. And I have experienced myself about 10+ types of blog posts from this list.

    These days I am doing round-up posts and it depends on how creative you can be with your round-up post to funnel great traffic to your other posts. I have written my first round-up post recently with my income report and its doing great already.

    I will soon go for some resource and coupons blog posts. I would also like to get an answer from you.

    Which 3 types of blog posts you recommend me? (Except- List & Tutorials)

    Thanks for sharing such an informative content here.

  • Thanks for the tips. I need to do some more expert round up posts. Also, it’s been years since I’ve done an interview article. Thank you for he reminder. I need to get going on these things.

  • Hi Sathish,

    Hats off to your creativity.

    We all are aware of these blog posts categories, but nobody could thought to collect them in a single piece of content to make people aware about them.

    Now I conclude that this blog post of yours is List type.

    Thanks for sharing your creativity.

  • That was great article, Satish. I mostly write solution type of articles, some of which get good traffic while others don’t. It’s just part and parcel of blogging.

  • Hello Satish,

    Thanks for sharing effective content methods for writing a blog post. But I think if the blog idea is based on evergreen or latest topic then it can drive massive traffic plus generate handsome earnings.

  • Thank for nice information sharing, I was more or less aware of all the strategies you mentioned here except the one where you use Kindle publishing to generate traffic to your blog. The idea about offering a free exclusive download is also really created- it makes consumers fell special.

    In addition to Quora, websites like BoardReader.com and Topsy.com also help you find out what users are talking about in your niche and what problems they are facing. This could help you in writing your next blog post or even creating a new tool or be adding a feature to an existing tool.

    Regarding Guest Posting many bloggers have a false belief that why should they write a great piece of content for some other blog and instead post in on their on blog but they miss out on the fact that 1 great piece of content on a good blog run by someone else might help them increase their visibility by many folds.

  • Hello, Sathish!

    AWESOME!

    I have tried a few ones and found Expert Roundup post working best out of them!

    I meant it worked great out of the types I experimented.

    After that, interview-related posts are good to have in the strategy.

    And thank you so much for introducing some new ideas. I will surely look and try a few. 🙂

  • Hi Sathish,

    This is treasure trove of amazing information regarding blogging! I am a roofer by profession and have been thinking about posting blogs to share my experiences, ideas about business in general and roofing in particular, but could not get the time.

    So I came up with an idea, few weeks back, instead of writing long form blogs, I write short blogs containing practical tips and ideas and it never takes more than 15 minutes of my time.

    I particularly liked your interview blog idea the most, I know so many prominent people in my business and interviewing them would make for a great content.

    Thanks a lot mate!
