Won’t be beautiful to increase your blog traffic with a new way to present some of your existing contents?
Here at Altervista, we developed a WordPress custom post type that builds excellent lists, which fits both for desktop and mobile view. We called it Top List.
Of course, you already can write lists on your blog. But does they look good?
With Top List, index posts do look good.
You can choose different layouts, size of the preview images, the position of the text and, again, it applies excellent both for mobile and desktop: something that it’s not granted with the do-it-yourself list.
Lists are popular
Lists are favorite on the social networks: posts like the seven things to do or not to do are always catchy.
With a beautiful cover image, your post-list can grow fast in hits on Facebook.
Sara, from blog Cucina con Sara (Cooking With Sara), just told us about the success on Facebook of her post: Carnival Recipes, made with the Top List custom post type.
Top List: Agenda And Creativity
You can use index posts to join the celebration of a scheduled event, such as Christmas, Easter or the Day Of Friendship.
Top List helps you to figure out how to tie different contents around a topic, such as blog Parco del Circeo made with the index post: Parco del Circeo Itinerari.
Lists are useful even to collect emotional indexes; you can fulfill a topic with creativity.
SEO and Top List
Google likes posts with high value in information on a single topic. A post that treats a keyword from different prospectives can be considered suitable for high ranking in the Google search results.
SEO plus of the Top list custom post type is that it provides structured data to Google, precisely what Google asks for better understanding the content of the page.
