I got inspired by an interesting post written by Leo Babauta at DailyBlogTips on how to deliver the highest impact with each post. He mentioned about the differences between high-impact and low-impact posts which I think an important thing that you need to know and consider if you are in your way to improve your blog performance and quality.
As a blogger, we write and publish various posts and articles per day or per week but sometimes we publish a lot of low-impact posts instead of high-impact one and as the result we don’t get the traffic and performance that we want for our blog.
First let’s look on the example of low-impact posts. You can find this type of post in many blogs however there is nothing to be discussed about. However some of this type might be highly discussed at famous celebrities’ blogs as for celebrities a small matter could be the big one for the fans.
Some example of the low-impact posts are:
- What I did/ate today
- A few favorite links
- Sorry I haven’t been blogging in awhile
- Tagged posts – with various types of tagging other bloggers
- My love
Most of these low-impact posts discussed more on personal things and there is no point to be discussed thus make the uninteresting to be searched. As a result, there is less traffic for the post.
Leo Babauta then listed some examples of the high-traffic posts which are:
- Extremely useful
- Complete guides
- Great headlines
- Full of resources
- New ideas
- Looking at new angles/perspectives
For more details of the important points mentioned by the writer, you can read it at the original post at DailyBlogTips.
I am looking to write more high-impact posts after this to improve the performance instead of writing low-impact posts which are dominating the overall blog posts but there is no point of writing them (although sometimes you might got traffic from writing this type of posts).
How about you? Looking forward to know what do you think in mind =p
