5 types of blog posts that generate traffic to your site

When you start blogging, there are many things you have to do and learn to be able to at least get a hang of it and see where to improve on and what to change to make yourself successful. I am by no means saying that I am a pro at this but I am happy to have learnt so many thing as I go along and ready to continue learning even much more. To some, blogging is easy because they are either tech survey or just know their way around computers but to others it’s a nightmare and to be able to know what to do is a plus. We know that once you start blogging the next step is to make  people read your blog, so I have come up with 5 types of blog posts that generate traffic to your site.

You need blog posts that will make people want to come back for more.I am not going to waste any more of your time and will just get right into it.


These type of posts are simple and easy to read through and when people don’t have time to skim through paragraphs, lists are usually your best option. Any post that has a list for something makes it easier for the reader to see what they wanted without having to spend a long time which they might not have on a post. Plus they are posts that are straight to the point without too much explaining just a simple list and your good to go.


Who doesn’t love being shown how to do something? These type of posts are the ones that make you feel you are there to learn something. They usually have either step by step instructions or detailed points on how to do a specific task or create something that you have always wanted to know how to do. I love these type of posts and if you need to learn how to do something again, I am sure you would return to the same place where you found your previous information. Here and here are how-to posts you may like.


I’m a sucker for review posts, any time I can find a review of something be it products, or even appliances, it gives me good information to know whether or not I will be trying it out it’s just like shopping online. When you want to get something you have never used before, recent customer reviews usually help you make up your mind or sometimes you end up ignoring them and get items that don’t really impress. Just like those reviews, blog posts that have reviews from different niches do make it easier for the readers to want to come back and check out more of your site hence generate traffic. Check out a review post here.


These type of posts are as the title says, they are for holiday periods and seasons, like Easter is coming soon so having a post about Easter will be appealing during this time because there just might be someone who needs to create decorations for Easter, know the planning involved and so on, if you know how to make Easter special, share it. Also posts like Spring decor ideas and  Spring outfits make you want to feel that season which makes people want to come back and read more about your ideas.


Blog posts that have checklists for doing something are also a great way to make readers want to come back to your site. Nowadays, people want to get information that will not beat around the bush but will just tell them exactly what they need to check out for them to get what they really need and in the simplest way possible. Some examples include checklists for travelling, packing,moving house, shopping and the list is endless. These type of posts are really useful when in comes to writing content for your blog and generating traffic. Find a blog post which has something similar here.

 I hope that these types of posts will be able to help you when you are stuck in a rut and have nothing to write about aka writers block. I know there many more types of posts out there and I will be happy to hear some of your ideas if you want to share. Till next time and don’t forget to comment below if you have any questions or just want to say hi.

  1. Great info – thanks! I know I really need to do a few more of these types of posts this year. Like, the sooner the better!

  2. I definitely need to do more seasonal content–I tend to stick to evergreen content that I know I can recycle in the future, but there’s such a big market for what’s new and happening right now!
