16 Feb How to Maximize a Round Up Blog Post to Boost Traffic
Have you noticed how some experienced bloggers often create round up blog posts? There’s a method to it that can help boost traffic to your blog. A round up blog post is a list of related content. It can connect your audience to related content on your blog or be aggregated from other blogs.
When you give your readers focused, valuable content designed to solve a problem it can position you as an expert with content that’s worth sharing.
For example, if you create a round up post on “1o Pros Share How to Plan Drama Free Family Photo Session” with expert quotes from 10 photography bloggers, their expertise and yours will mean a lot. If you’re a food blogger, you can create a round up of “7 Simple Cookout Recipes” and link to seven of your own recipes. Community Member Herchel Scruggs created 10 Easy Paleo Recipes for Every Meal and LaShawn Wiltz shared 10 Black Photographers to Follow on Instagram.
Create the Perfect Pinterest Image
Pinterest is a wonderful way to maximize a round up post. Use an eye-catching image and text that clearly states what your post promises to deliver.
