When it comes to blogging traffic is a very important factor to our success and one of the best ways to getting quality traffic to your blog is by working on making your blog posts go viral. A lot of us have attempted writing viral blog posts without results but from my experience I have been able to observe some highly successful blog posts in my field and the formulas that were used to write them. Below are 3 great types of viral blog posts I have used to great effect on my blog which features nutrisystem and medifast. They are also very effective in every niche!
101 List Posts
This is a particular type of viral blog post that is very rare but has great potential. Almost every 101 list post I have seen or written has been a huge success going viral. Tthere is something with the word “101” that makes it always work.
People love list posts, and when they see you have 101 things to talk about they have no choice than to listen. Another thing about writing list posts is that they will always go viral because people like to share them due to the fact that they will learn one or two major things.
Latest News Posts
I have also noticed that this kind of blog post is used to great effect in the tech/blogging niche, and if you could manage to be one of the first people to blog about a particular occurrence you can easily increase the chances of making that post go viral.
I have a friend in the tech niche that happened to blog about the recent Anthony Weiner scandal. As a result of being one of the first people to blog about that news he was able to get as much as 6,000 visitors in one single day from Google alone.
News posts work great, don’t ever underestimate them.
Top Influencers Posts
The final type of viral blog post on this list that always seem to work is a kind of post in which you list the top influencers in your field. People really love it when they are noticed and mentioned so if you can successfully combine a list of the top 30 or so people in your field you will be able to get their attention and they will end up sharing the post to their readers. That will eventually lead to more traffic to your blog and as a result increase the chances of your success.
There are many types of articles that you can write. It’s up to you to find that next blog post that goes viral.
