Don’t worry! I’m going to reveal in this post what types of blog posts to write that works great and will get you maximum page views as well as an increased engagement rate.
So let’s get straight into the business
How to write a blog Post that drives traffic
Define your Niche
When starting a blogging career you must define a niche that interests you.
Picking up a niche is a great way to escape too many competitions in the bloggers’ world who are blogging in a broad niche.
So, firstly your aim should be to pick a niche that not only just interest you but you need to look at whether it also has public interests.
Because see if both don’t match then that should not be a good idea to work on that niche.
Now, why I’m saying it to you? well just think hypothetically, you know a lot in the niche called baby nurturing but what if no one has even 1% interest then!
You are not gonna get any traffic even though you followed the right blogging strategy and posted the blogs frequently.
Choosing a niche shouldn’t be a difficult thing. If you know how to manage money or saving money or invest money then your niche is personal finance.
If you know a lot of things about food like how to cook or new food recipes that no one knows then a food blog is your niche industry.
Attention grabing title
When you are done picking up a niche then you obviously want to start writing blog posts right! I’m guessing your answer is yes!
Now here is a thing that no one gonna tell you the secret but I’m.
The secret is you must come up with a clickable title idea for your blog post that teases people or excites otherwise you will get a hard time driving traffic organically to your blogging website.
If you don’t know how to create an interesting and exciting blog title then I have the answer for you.
It’s called Headlineanalyzer
I also use this whenever I’m planning to write new blogs.

Planning about blog content
Since you have got the perfect title for your content next task is writing the worth of content.
You must know about what you are writing and what elements you have planned to feature in your posts like video, images, and infographics. These are all essential when it comes to judging quality content.
You should promote your youtube video in your blog or use some quality stock images in your blog and infographics to give a powerful look or impression to your blog.
Editing content like pro
As you have written a worthy of content you must check all the things in your content.
You must check if you have grammar mistakes if it has then correct it.
Now when correcting or proofreading you should forget that you had written the content and don’t show any attachment or emotion like oh! this line was great why should I correct it or remove this or that section.
No, you are not supposed to think that way while editing your copy or proofreading. If you are fine to do that thing then it’s great!.
But if you are not able to edit your work for whatever reason then you should take someone’s help either from your family member or from a friend circle who knows how to edit or proofread content.
you can also hire someone from freelance websites like Upwork, Fiverr online for your task of editing.
Publish content and promoting
Now that you have done creating great content, editing, and proofreading task here comes the most important task and exciting task.
Exciting in the sense you are going to hit that publish button and that will be publicly public which means your content is on air and anyone can read your copy.
But important in the sense you have to promote your content on different platforms especially on different social media platforms or promoting on other blogging sites by writing guest posts and leaving your blog post’s link so that traffic can come to your blog from guest blog sites.
There is a common statement you probably heard that creating content is like completing 20% of your task other 80% is how you promote it or how well you promote it.
Now you know exactly how to write blog posts that drive traffic.

Brands often find these types of posts most suitable for their business to promote their products or services when they approaching bloggers for writing sponsored posts.
Trending or Viral News Posts
Now I’m not telling you to turn your blog into a news website, rather you need to do the task smartly way.
You should write posts only on your niche-oriented topic and telling about the news that is trending in your niche industry is actually an effective way to boost your website simply because people might also be surfing the internet just to get to know about that trending news.

you can also make infographics from Canva if you have basic design or knowledge of how to create one.
Controversial posts tend to work better and can go viral since you are writing about controversial matters.
Though there is a con and that is you may get criticized by readers on your site because they might have different opinions on the topic that you covered.
You also need to write posts with selective words that don’t hit someone’s ego and if they did then be prepared to receive angry or abusive words.
Guest blog posts
Another blog posts types are Guests posts.
The best thing about guest posts is you don’t need to do any planning about the content topic, keywords research, and of course, writing the damn blog post.
Rather you just need to approve content that other guest bloggers write for your blog. Some blog owners don’t even check guest posts properly and those posts get uploaded manually or automatically.
The one thing that you have to make sure of is that your site has at least a 20 DA score so that guest bloggers get interested in writing blogs on your site.
Series blog post
If you have long blog posts ideas then you should break them into more blog posts.
Doing so not only you will have some relief of not to do content planning for the next few posts but will also be effective from a reader’s perspective as they will be more and more excited and will be guessing about your next post on the same topic.
Many bloggers had adopted and applied this method so why not you!
