Which blogging style do you use?
Mister Snitch! lists seven types of blogging styles that generate traffic in Blogging styles and traffic stats. Looking at the different styles in the list I find that three of them match the way I write at this site and where the traffic is coming from:
The subject is usually something the writer is passionate about, or has special expertise in.Regular readers have probably noticed that I am pretty passionate about web standards and accessibility.
- Internet guides:
Their strength is that they are trusted link finders/filters.Many of my posts link to stories, articles, or guides elsewhere. For the past few months I’ve been writing longer “reviews” of the material I link to, and many readers seem to appreciate that.
- The long-tail blogger:
His site gets found because the search engines reward authoritative blog posts - and longevity.Search engine traffic to this site is increasing steadily, and older posts get many hits.
So which blogging styles do you use, and how are they generating traffic to your site?
