10 Types of Blog Posts That People Love To Read

Sharing is caring!

Scratching your head to come up with an idea to write next great post?

Have you ever thought about writing an article which people would love to read but couldn't even start writing?

Are you still reading other blogs to get some ideas and then compile them in single post?

If you are one of them then sit relax and read this article for getting better ideas to write your next blog post. Here I am going to talk about 10 types of blog post which I have used to drive traffic on my blog and people love to read and share them..

10 Types of Blog Posts That People Love To Read

Have a look at my list and be ready for the action.

#1. Tutorial Posts

We all love to write such posts. These are the posts which help people to learn something new, something which can help them to solve their problems and make their life easier.

Such articles provide step by step instructions to your readers to accomplish any particular task. Having visuals (images, videos) are MUST for such types of articles, as we are going to teach them something, so explaining everything with the help of pictures is a great idea.

You can check my long tail pro tutorial where I explained each and everything in very detailed manner.

Mots of the times such posts are either about tools or any online service so you must put maximum efforts to explain things in easy manner. As people who are searching for such tutorials are in strong need to learn how to use that tool/service, so giving them what they want in easy manner will make them more comfortable.

#2. Interviews

Personally I love this.

This one practice open many doors for you.

You can know more about great internet marketers and help your readers to learn the tactics directly from experts. 5-6 months I had blogging cage interview series on my blog where I interviewed some of the best industry experts and learnt many new things.

As I was publishing these interviews on every Saturday so I could see traffic increase on my blog on every weekends.

Interviews motivateย people, they make them feel more inspired and more dedicated for the work they are doing.

So you can start an interview series on your blog where you can ask your niche related questions. This will make your blog popular and industry experts willย love to share your content.

#3. List Articles

When I read one article on Income Diary about how he got over 100,000 visitors in a month just by writing list articles, I also started writing them on my blog.

You can check on my blog that around 60% of my articles are list articles.

Why such articles are most successful?

  1. Because we are giving them specific figure of our points (like this post “10 Types of Blog Posts That People Love To Read“).
  2. Such articles are very easy to scan.
  3. Such articles don't need any extra efforts to read big paragraphs.
  4. Such articles make a picture in our mind about points.
  5. We become curious to check new points (as we already know few of them).

In short these article are easy to write, easy to scan and ultimately easy to let people come in.

#4. Review Posts

I was not a type of guy who loved to write review posts on his blog.

Because they need a lot of efforts and you need to cover each and every point of the product which you are reviewing. But one day an advertiser approached me and offered $550 for writing a single review article on one of my blogs.

Yeah.. money talks.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So I started writing review articles on my blog.

These are the type of articles which help people to make their decision to buy products.

I wrote genesis framework review and kontent machine review on my blog which ended up sending $496.54 last month.

If you are writing review articles on your blog then make you you are adding actionable elements on your blog. These elements will let people take quick action and they will end up buying products with your affiliate links.

#5. Resource Posts

These articles can putย extra money in your pocket every day. ๐Ÿ˜‰

People love to know about the tools and services used by blog which they love to read. In my case it was Smart Passive Income blog, where I used to check his tools and services.

I have 2 resource pages (one blog post) on my blog – My resource page and ย premium internet marketing tools list.

These pages build confidence in your reader to buy products because they believe you.

#6. Infographics

If you can hire anyone to make an infographic for you, believe me this would be one of your best online investments to boost your brand.

Read this SEO strategyย written Brian Dean at Backlinko.

His one infographic went so viral that he ended up getting hundreds of quality links at free of cost.

So you can start publishing other people's infographics on your blog, share them on various social media sites to bring more people on your blog.

#7. Round-up Series

This is something which I am going to start soon.

You must be reading hundreds of articles on various blogs every week, and there would be many articles which you love to read again and again.

You can compile those articles on your blog and let your reader know what you learnt last week.

By sharing other people's articles on your blog you will not help your readers to learn something new but also you can make strong relations with people.

You can check one example here, where one of my online friends shared my article in his round-up series.

#8. Giveaways

I know you love giveaways. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This is a nice opportunity to grab premium things at free of cost.

I keep running various giveaways on my blog, because people love to participate in the giveaways. On my blog I have observed more traffic than usual days when I run giveaways on my blog.

You can contact the advertisers and show them your blog for giveaways.

If your blog is having quality articles and good stats then advertisers will sponsor giveaways on your blog which will ultimately start bringing more traffic on your blog.

#9. Video/Audio Tips

Audio/video hits our subconscious mind more than anything.

We can recall the things which we have seen or listened.

So putting audio/video content on your blog can please your readers because such content can be consumed anytime. For reading any article you need proper time, as you will have to sit in front on computer or magazine to read the stuff.

But this is not applicable for audio. You can listen them anywhere.

If you don't know how to start audio/video podcast on your blog then you can check this article on SmartPassiveIncome blog.

#10. Your Personal Experience

These articles bring more traffic than any other articles mentioned above.

If you aren't agree with the above statement, let me ask one question form you.

I have two articles on my blog:

1. How to attractย 10,000 visitors on your blog?

2. How Iย attracted 10,000 visitors on my blog in 25 days?

Which article would you love to read first?

I think you got the answer.

We love to read articles which are more personal as compared to generic ones. So writing articles which convey your true story to your audience will bring more traffic and people would love to read more articles written by you.

Wrapping up

These are types of blog posts which you can use on your blog to get more loyal readers and ultimately more traffic on your blog. If you are still writing one type of blog posts on your blog then start doing more experiment and see what your readers want..

Now your turn

If you think I have missed anything in this article then feel free to add more value here. I would love to have more suggestions from your side so that I can produce more awesome content in future.

    Keep up the good work my dear friend
    Keep informed.
    Best Regards
    ~Philip Ariel

    • Thanks for stopping by, Philip. I am very happy to see you here. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes, our biggest concern is traffic.. because we are going to make money online or our online identity only if we have traffic on our blog.

      Philip, I was personally in love of few blogs, so I used to check them daily and read each and every article written by them.. One day I was sitting free and asked one question to myself, “why do I read those blogs?”

      The answer I got was – because they write personal stuff and they explain everything very well. So I also started writing such posts on my blog.. Very soon results were in front of me as more people were sharing and loving my stuff now.

      Other ways which I mentioned in the articles are as good as other articles but it’s all on you how you represent your stuff.

      After seeing so many visitors from Kingged, I am in love with them. ๐Ÿ™‚ Such a great community having awesome people.

      Thanks again for visiting.. Have a great day ahead..

  2. And above all of them they love to read how do you earn money online. If you are able to hit the perfect cord then I am sure they will love to read again and again your blog. Am I right Kulwant?

    • Exactly Rakesh. I think I missed to share about “Income Reports Article” in this article.

      Thanks for adding value. (Y)

  3. Personally speaking I enjoy the writing part in a tutorial. Because that’s the reason I started my first tech blog, to share the methods I know and now, I know my readers like them too. I also write a few reviews and yes giveaways, everybody loves them!

    I have also started a YouTube channel for providing video tutorials and now I am thinking of providing PDFs too.

    I don’t have any resources page yet and neither have I taken any interviews but now they will be in my to-do list.

    Thanks for the insights Kulwant ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Mahaveer, I checked your blog and loved it. Great design with eye-catching elements.. so congrats for having such a good blog..

      Even I started by writing tech tips on my blog but soon I found that it was not my forte so I shifted to core blogging and SEO tips. I always wanted to start a YouTube channel but never got time to make videos, but just few month back I have started one and added few subscribers as well.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Check – https://www.youtube.com/user/BloggingCage

      No worry if you don’t have any interview post on your blog but I will recommend to add resource page today itself because it will help your readers to buy best products.

  4. A good compilation Kulwant..
    The points you mentioned about list posts are really good. What I liked is how you explained the benefits of having a list post. That’s cool!
    Getting your own infographics seems to be a cool idea but getting them ready might raise some issues.. ๐Ÿ˜€
    I have got some new ideas while reading your post and I am going to implement them on my blog.. Thanks for this write up ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hey Manpreet. Happy to see you on my blog.

      I personally love to write list articles because such articles give you deadline. You know what you are going to write having clear picture in your mind to cover those points.

      Thanks for appreciating my style of writing. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Infographics are becoming very viral these days as these are very easy to scan and we get huge information in just few seconds, but for getting a quality infographics you will have to spend atleast $300. I have seen some companies which are charging $6000 for a single infograph having condition that you will have to give them little idea.

      Feeling awesome to hear that this article was able to convey some ideas as well. Hope I am going see a great article on your blog very soon.

      Thanks again for being here.

  5. Nice round up of all the post type here.
    Sharing personal life experience with users really works and if it is an inspirational story like you then users come again and agian to the blog.
    Nice post Kulwant

    • Yes Uday… Such articles work like charm. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I have tried it many times and got huge response.

  6. Hey Kulwant Nagi
    Thanks a lot for another wonderfully awesome post. Last types is really cool. Narrating your experience offers lot of interest to those who want to learn how you reached to the height of perfection. But for writing this post one need to be authority in his niche.
    Being a pro blogger you can easily share you great experiences with the readers to motivate them and keep them struggling as blogger. Newbies like me need to avoid writing this type of post at the beginning of their blogging journey.
    All the types you mentioned here are really awesome and now it is necessary to plan the contents by fully covering all types of posts. Otherwise people gets bored by reading same types of posts again and again.
    Once again thanks a lot for sharing such wonderful list.

    • Hello Mr. Mi Muba.

      Welcome again.

      I agree with your point that one need to have strong presence and authority if anyone wants to share his personal experience. So having authority is MUST for writing such articles..

      When you are a well-known person in your niche then people show more interest to read about you and learn tips from your personal experience. I personally started writing such articles after spending 1.5 years in blogging.

      Thanks a lot for joining hands here and appreciating my efforts. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. By and large, everyone will love to read an article that offers them value. It could be tutorial, list, review, etc.

    The important thing is that such articles must deliver value after compelling the reader to read from start to finish.

    Yes, these 10 types of blog posts are very popular with readers online. It would be helpful to tap into them!

    This comment was left in kingged.com – the content syndication and social bookmarking website for Internet Marketers where this post was shared.

    Sunday – kingged.com contributor

    • Yeah Sunday, I agree on that.

      Article must add value where people can take quick action to implement them. Hope many people will get new post ideas after going through this article.

      Happy to see you around..

      PS: I am getting many visitors from Kingged.. ๐Ÿ™‚ So congrats for having this great community..

  8. Should we consider it as “Resource Posts” ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Really good article, loved it. Can we add one more here as Inspirational stories, this could be interview or some write up. Inspirational thing also attract more attractions as well as more social shares too.

    • Most welcome Jaydip baba. ๐Ÿ™‚

      This is a list post, so we cannot consider it as resource post.

      Yeah, we can add inspirational stories (either your own story or other successful entrepreneur’s), which will inspire lots of people around us and they will be able to take actions..

      I am going to start my interview series again, so hope this time I will reach more audience.

  9. Those were some really nice ideas.

    People love to read the Experiences of other Person. Because they are full of information and benefit.

    A guy sharing his 10 years experience, just in 500 words.

    Not a big deal, right?

    But has heck of a benefit for you in reading it.

    I came from kingged.com and kingged this post.

    • I agree with you on that.. People really love to read other people’s stories as this ignite their inner human being to do better things. At Blogging Cage I always try to write my personal experience articles, and you can see more responses on those articles.

      I am loving Kingged.. Too many people are coming from there.. Awesome community..

      I would love to see you again. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Sir Kulwant, it’s really nice to see you here even though I’m not happy that my comment on your post via Harleena’s blog didn’t get a reply. Well, it’s okay and maybe you could still go leave a reply there. (It’s better late than never). ๐Ÿ˜€

    So speaking about this great post, this are really sure ways of driving huge traffic to ones blog.

    I think all the points you raised are the best ways especially the list articles, interviews and personal experience articles.

    I love this three so much because they are the ones that as worked for me the most. Being the type that love asking questions and wanting to know the success stories of others; what they did that brought them success, I love interviewing folks and it has really brought a lot of engagement to my site, though my main site.

    I also love list articles and if you check my blog, you’d realize that majority of the posts are list articles…I personally love them.

    Personal experience cannot be put aside here because at the end your readers wants to get a hold of your personality, they want to be able to connect with you and the simple way to do that is by providing them your real life experiences.

    Sir, you indeed nailed this article. Thanks for sharing it here! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sam

    • Sam, that was the longest comment in my life. So for replying that comment I had to come up with great mindset. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I have replied that comment and enjoyed while replying.. Now warm welcome on my blog.

      List article are no doubt very easy to write and consume, so most of the bloggers love to write such list article on their blog.. When I used to publish interviews on my blog then I observed big traffic spikes, so no doubt that people love to read interview and personal stuff as well.

      It’s all on you how well you can represent an article.. I have seen few blog who write personal stuff only and people to read and follow them.

      Thanks a lot for being here and sharing your valuable thoughts with us. I would love to see you around.

  11. I started list and how to’s articles on my blog as they give the user a clear picture and are really helpful. If I too get such a nice amount for review, I will definitely start a review series for all the good and potential advertisers.

    Personal story helps people connect and this boost the shares and thus traffic. My personal favorite is giveaway’s, they tend to do magic for the blog as if pitched user friendly, then can drive great traffics.

    All the types of blog posts, you mentioned are epic like you. I found the link to this article on kingged.

    • Yes Rohan, such articles always give us clear idea about the number of point which we are going to read, so we make our mind in advance. I have written so many list articles on my blog and they have worked like charm for me.

      When I started writing my personal experience articles 5-6 months, people started showing more interest to read my article and I was getting more share as compared to normal articles. So no doubt these articles make our readers more happy.

      Thanks a lot for being here and becoming one of the awesome kinggers. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Hello Kulwant,

    A great compilation of type of posts, thanks.

    Usually visitors and readers don’t like to read same type of posts, some blogs only write about reviews, some only about lists. Visitors usually have different taste, giving them a wide variety of options would be good for you and your blog. It will reduce your bounce rate, too!

    But, sometimes, it might prove beneficial. for example, sites like cracked and listverse usually post addictive and dashing-looking list posts, which get them heck loads of traffic.

    Thanks for the list,

    Sayantan

    • Agree with you on the point to write same types of posts on blog. We feel very bore when we keep getting same types of article from any blog, so blog owner must keep experimenting articles of various types. Yeah, for sure it will keep their readers happy and they would love to spend more time on blog, which will ultimately reduce bounce rate of the blog.

      Those are free goodies so people usually check them daily. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks for joining hands here. Would love to see you around again. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Hy Kulwant,
    This is nice to read this article. This post has every main point about our all favorite topic and that every blogger like me should consider while writing next post..

    Thanks for sharing such a helpful post.

  14. Hi Kulwant, Nice post. I appreciate your words here. It’s true and amazing post here. I’d definitely got some idea here and find some ways to write an article on my blogs too. Thanks for sharing this good information with us.

  15. Hi Kulwant,

    Thanks for this wonderful post. This is kind of article bloggers like me love to read, every bloggers want to write a article post that will go viral, gain backlinks & SEO Friendly.

    All the article types you mentioned here are really great and any blogger who wish to write article post that will gain thousands of view should not ignored them.

    I agree with you that “List articles & tutorials” do go viral easily but I personally enjoy writing about tech related HOW-TOs & DIY Guides.

    Thanks for sharing this with us and have a nice weekend

    • Olamosh, people love to read “how to” articles because most of the times these are problem solving articles.

      Thanks for being here.

  16. It is important for bloggers to know what kind of blog posts did most people love reading.

    This information could really help them sneak out on their readersโ€™ mind and they could also take an advantage on this information in order to create quality content that leads more traffic back to their website.

    Tutorial posts are helpful, while review posts are useful. Infographics would be the most lovable kind of post to read, as for me. Next to infographics are video or audio posts, and the posts that share personal experience of the writer.

    I think it would be much more interesting if you do a countdown from least to the most interesting blog post. It could also result to content comparison, which is a good topic to start another conversation.

    Well, I still had a good read. Thanks for this post! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Best,
    Ann07

    By the way, I found this post shared on Kingged.com

    • Yes Ann07, finding the interest of reader is itself a science. You have to study a lot of things to figure out the interest and taste of people, which can be achieved only by publishing different types of blog posts and then by analyzing each of them.

      Tutorial posts are awesome because readers always learn new things after going through such posts. I have shared infographics on my blog many times and got great results. So soon I am going to make my own infographics. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yeah, doing countdown can bring great results.

      Thanks for being here and sharing your insightful thoughts.

  17. You’ve provided very nice ideas to write posts for our blogs Nagi ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m happy to say that I do write most types of blog post which you’ve listed here like interview, review, roundup, personal experience posts etc. I’m missing some types such as Inforgraphics and giveaways, will start to offer soon.

    Thanks for contributing such a valuable post for us.

    • Thanks Nirmala Mam..

      Hope you will cover all the remaining types in your next blog posts soon.

      Best wishes.

  18. Great list Kulwant, but what I have observed that nowadays people are more often visits time pass/entertainment blogs (my opinion.)

  19. Hi Sir, I am writing reviews on Mobile Phones, Tablets and Laptops. But Can you tell me if I don’t make backlinks and just keep writing articles daily. Can I earn through my site ?

  20. Amazing, since my blog (Howtouncle) is a technology blog, so I always feel confused while creating content. Three things always come in my mind – Which type of article people like most? On which topic people love to read with interest? In which way I should write the article that will be appreciated by readers?

    I think today I got the answer of all these my three question after reading this impressive post. I can now promise myself that my upcoming article will be awesome. Thanks for this precious information.

    I got this precious piece of thought on kingged.com and became attract to read completely.

  21. This is a another awesome blog post from you. Yeah i will surely agree with you about review posts. They are working really , if the persons give the right information and positive information with experience. Above all the tips i will have to agree with you. Thanks buddy for sharing these tips with us.
