5 Types Of Blog Posts That Will Set Your Blog On Fire
When you type — ‘how to make a paper plane’ Or ‘how to root a smartphone’. The kind of result you get is a ‘How to’ blog post. You can write plenty of How to’s for different items and or procedures for a project. But it is wise to pick a niche and write How to’s on that particular topic only.
If you are a tech blogger whose niche is smartphone then it would be useful to write smartphone based How to’s — Like ‘how to keep your smartphone optimized’ Or ‘how to enable one-handed mode’.
Before you actually write one you should always research the market and different elements of SEO and SEM.
Anyway, How to’s have become very common these days — I bet you don’t even realize how often you use them, do you? This can be a great blog post if you know it’s worth, market and of course it’s usefulness.
Guides are another great example of a catchy blog posts. Keywords are essentially the same as used for How to’s — like ‘how to build a business from scratch’ or ‘how to make a living online’. The difference is that Guides are generally more elaborate and guide you through the whole process to achieve your goal.
To write a guide you need to have a decent understanding of the process you are dealing with and you should be able to lay out the steps and methods very clearly and they should be easy to follow.
Again, you need to research the keywords and see if you guide is needed, or else, a lot of time will be wasted.
Anyway, this is a great blog post type for any niche.
