    the perfect blog post is a post that holds clear and easy to read information for the visitor. Remember too many images and clutter distracts and can be a nightmare on mobile phones. People skim nowadays so saying something quickly in a clear way is far better than trying to be clever and using big words , huge blocks of text to say the same thing. Interaction is also a part of it and sharing, people will only share if the post is of value, if they are fed up they'll click off and go somewhere else.

    i reckon this study might be irrelevant since it's very subjective: i bet there are a lot of good articles which didn't make the top100 just because they weren't featured on platforms with many users. I'm not saying the study is wrong, I'm saying that you can't pretend to have the formula for the perfect blogpost studying "high ranking articles". And on the other hand, different audiences enjoy different types of blogposts formats.

    PS very nice design. I love it

    Looks like a good infographic, altough I'd like to see some sources. This could be just random data as far as I know...

    it's all great but this is just how to expand your market. If you are market segmenting some of this stuff may not be useful

    Those are some nice pointers indeed!

    Few More Can be;
    • Use of Catchy Sub-headers
    • A Proper Content strategy that each Blog post should Depic
    • Use of Long-tail Keywords that comes up in searches
    • Replying to Comments frequently (THIS IS Very Interesting!)

    Hope It helps to all Bhw Memebers!

    Thanks

    Here's some more.

    1.) Catchy Headline - You need a headline that will entice the reader to want to visit your webpage. Take the time to actually come up with something interesting that will set you apart from other related search competition.


    2.) Make Use of Visual Illustrations - You might notice that in a lot of my posts I will add images inside my posts. (Check out 10 Awesome Web Traffic Tips Often Overlooked, for an example.) Not only is it visually appealing, but it also helps organize and break down large blocks of text into a more readable fashion.


    3.) Clean Layout - This also goes hand-in-hand with tip #2, but is also worth mentioning. Keep your posts clean, and have a strong layout of what you want your blog post to look like before even writing it. It helps to brainstorm your ideas and write them down. Figure out what exactly you are going to talk about, and the order you want it in. Try not to drift off so much from the original idea.


    4.) Interesting & Unique Content - Readers want new ideas and information, not the same rehashed garbage. Try to keep your content unique and don't be afraid to break away from your "comfort zone" every once in awhile.


    5.) Make It Believable - Make your posts convincing and believable, especially if you are pitching a new idea or selling something. Write your words as genuine as possible, if you are offering a solution to a problem, make the reader feel like you actually want to help them. The best converting review blogs are the ones where the author actually reviews the product and speaks to you like a friend and not a salesman.


    6.) Call To Action - Whether it's a simple Facebook share, or you're promoting a product, you need to create a "call to action". There's no point in having traffic if you aren't funneling it to the right channels to make money. Don't be too begging, but make sure your call to action is loud and clear.


    7.) Keyword Analysis - Unless you don't like free easy traffic, you should do some keyword research before every post. Figure out what keywords you want to target and apply them to your posts.


    8.) Ask Readers To Subscribe - This may sound basic, but is sometimes forgotten. A strong e-mail list can quickly turn itself into a "money on demand" machine, so don't forget to ask your visitors to subscribe.


    9.) Link To Other Posts - Make sure to link to other posts within your articles. I already did it once in this post, did you see it? This will keep your visitors around longer and allow you to further strengthen the relationship with your readers.
