For me, I make sure that the topic is an answer to a common question. I create most of my topics based on what other people are asking. I write topics that offer value.

Answering question that are frequently asked does get more attention than writing on a random topic. I have now read a number of your articles and I guess they answer questions in your niche. I personally address problems that people come to me with. I believe answering those problem could help those who seek help online.

Yes, that is why I appreciate it when friends and other people would send me a message asking about something. Usually, they asked about earning online. Not all the time I know the answer. What I do, I will make a research and will help them answer their questions. I also use the idea to create new topics.

Additionally, the following might also help.
-Writing about trending topics.
-Creating interesting Headline

I use nice images. It's important because if people want to share your link via social media, it's always good if an image comes through the sharing interface. The images are attention-grabbers.

I also used related embedded content. Mainly I'll share tweets from Twitter. But if I want to share a related link from another blog or website, I will try to use embedded content. Embedly is a great tool for that.

I try to use TAGS that I think people might search for when they are doing organic or generic searches.

I try to create a TITLE that peaks a person't interest and might make them want to know more.

If it's an informal post, I try to write like I'm having a conversation.

If it's a formal post, I try to sound a little bit more "intelligent" :lol: and I include references to content or material written by authorities or experts just so my reader doesn't think I'm blowing out hot air!

Those are some of the things I do.

P.S. Also, for my stand alone blogs, I may repurpose the content in a social blogging community (like create a quiz or a poll at Virily) and then share the link to my blog in that community post.

Wow awesome, if you have the time and the inclination would you write more about embedded content . I have no clue what you mean exactly here so that would certainly be a learning experience for me. Thanks a ton, I appreciate the effort.

Define? Well content that is exhaustive, well written, well presented and Search engine optimized would be great content in my opinion. That said, let me tell you I am no Blogging Guru, just a student who wants to learn more.

I tend to agree with that , but google doesn't care for short posts. I like to write medium sized posts 500-750 words normally , I think any thing more than that would not even be read by the instant gratification generation now.

There are those who want detailed long white papers. But they aren't usually the blog reading audience. Know your reading audience and customize your content to suit them.

Here is an example of how I use embedded content at one of my blogs.

The YouTube videos are embedded. You get the code from clicking the Share button at the YT video and put it in your post.

The Twitter tweets are embedded. You click on a dropdown box at the tweet for the code and out it in your post.

The last but of embedded content is a post I published at Virily. I used the Embed.ly tool to generate the code and put it in the post.

Hope this helps.

I think HUBPages does. They must because I still earn income from my articles and get comments. I also think Medium does also. It's just my opinion. I don't have any stats or facts. I don't keep track of the article writing sites since I don't own them.
