If you’re stuck on creating content for your website in order to attract and keep visitors on it, then you’ll probably find creating a list post works for you. Also, it’s easy to do as long as you know your niche knowledge.
4 reasons to use list content.
First, by its very nature it has the appearance of neatness and clear organization. It helps you avoid having to make sure your text and web page are not cluttered. So there’s no confusion for visitors: lists can be read easily and their appearance enhances the interest of your material as it can be accessed quickly. It’s more likely people will go all through a list than normal paragraph organization.
Second, visitors can scan down lists. Most people online tend to scan rather than read word for word, at least when they first come across content. If your topic is of interest to the visitor they will probably want to see how each listed point you make can be of use to them, for example in a listed review of specific type of products.
Third, lists already provide you with your organization so it’s easier for you to set out the writing. It actually helps you to sort through what you want to say, especially as you can change the order of the list items. At the same time, particular list items can inspire ideas about other items you can include that you hadn’t thought of originally. It’s much easier than creating a series of connected paragraphs.
Fourth, it’s easier to get links to it. As it’s so much easier to read, quickly, and more concise than a full blown paragraphed post, people are more likely to link back to it or pass on a link to it.
Provide original, or even unique list content in your niche, and people will love to consume, re-read, and pass on the link information.
