Examine, on the infographic, the different aspects of blog posting to determine which characteristics essentially create “the perfect blog post”. Such a journey through what makes a certain blog come across better than a competing blog comes with the fact that currently there are hundreds of millions of blogs available to the general public about virtually every topic, both professionally and informally written, contributing to an increasingly overwhelming prospect of how to make your blog stand out amongst the rest. So, what are the common trends among successful blogs?
Impressively enough, on average, high ranking blog posts contain a large number of elements within each single post. Concentrating around 1150 words per article, an inordinately large percentage of blogs, 95% and 72%, respectively, to be exact, contained social media buttons, such as Facebook and Twitter, and featured open sections for public comments. What I found most surprising however was that on average almost 10 links (9.96 is the exact count) are embedded within each post to let a blog’s audience reach out to more content related to the subject matter.
Other fun little quirks about blog posts is that the average article contains around three images, pictures which serve to quickly maintain a possible dwindling audience member attentive to the topic at hand without feeling overloaded with too many words. Overall, some of these statistics may or may not seem a tiny bit daunting when thinking about how much goes into a simple article, yet without a doubt these blog tricks make your audience seem more immersed within the topic, convincing them of the validity of your argument.
