Show some love. Save on Pinterest



Here is the first blog post idea that generates traffic, social shares and backlinks

1 – Featured bloggers!

This is not the traditional interview blog post idea that we know. While traditional interviews have their place, they are gradually fading out. One of the reasons behind this is the fact that some bloggers lack inspiration. They questions they put forward are copy-paste, making the whole exercise a bore.

I have been running the feature blogger slot on my blog since last year and the results are just so awesome. Not only does this help me create new relationships and fortify current ones, I also get backlinks from most of the bloggers I feature here on my blog.  Yes, they get so excited and go on to link to their featured article from their blogs.

Besides, they share the hell out of it. The result is traffic and traffic and traffic.

Here is what happens:

Get to relatively popular bloggers and ask them to provide some basic information about themselves. You have to precise they write in the third person.

3 out of 4 will possibly respond. Get the materials and mix up with some more information. The idea is to sell the blogger as much as possible on your blog. Keep nothing back! Share their products, blog posts, guest articles, social media profiles.

The result of this is always traffic for them:

When I started featuring bloggers on my former blog, I kicked off with my friend Ivin. The outcome was a traffic revival. Check out this article he wrote about the traffic spike.

2 – Round up post!

Here is another way to give out to fellow bloggers while indirectly getting them on their promotion wheels to spread the word about you.

Here is the point:

As you blog-hop, you come across impressive posts. Put them down and at any given time, tell your readers about them. Some bloggers do this on Fridays while some on Mondays. It’s all in your hands. Do it weekly or monthly. All I know is this is a beautiful and actionable blog post idea.

My friend Erik Emanulli decoded this:

8 must read blogs

Erik listed 8 must-read blogs and this no doubt attracted the attention of powerful 8 bloggers who did not even need Erik’s consent to promote his post.

Adrienne Smith knew this trick before me. She’s been doing this and getting results:

16 bloggers recommended

She’s been doing this on her blog and I believe this has been a wonderful success. Of course, the fact she keeps coming up with this post structure tells us something good drops  out of it.

In a recent round up, she mentioned me on this powerful list of 16 recommended bloggers.

That’s not all:

In a recent post that is growing very popular, Chintan featured me on this list of 35 blog leaders along side many tough bloggers:

35 blog leaders

The examples are many and each time I get mentioned in a round up post, I get excited and want to share the post. Not only that, I talk about the mention on my blog (just like I’m doing now)

Tell blog owners about it!

Once you do a round up post, shoot a mail to blog owners and let them know you gave them a shout out on your blog.

Now, taking the pains to send them a mail is important:

That’s it for today!

  1. Hey Enstine,

    Thank you for sharing these tips. I’ve always used the round up post strategy and that works like crazy for getting traffic.

    I’ve just recently started featuring bloggers and I’m amazed at the opportunity that brings even though the traffic potential is not as high as with a round up post.

    It’s as if to say that when the attention is all focused on the one blogger, she picks up the sole responsiblity of sharing the post and does so with gusto.

    • Hey Lily,
      Good to see you here and thanks for the comment.
      What I particularly like about featuring bloggers is the fact that you both get a stronger relationship and that’s important to me. Why roundup is more about getting the different featured folks to share, featured posts create a stronger bond.

      So would you like to be my next featured blogger?

  5. Hi Enstine,

    I found this post from the Facebook group. Anyway, while I knew about featuring bloggers in a post, I have never done it before myself.

    Given the actual examples you’ve shown, these type of posts should be one that any bloggers should do at least once. Instead of just trying to guess blog, this can be an easier way to get backlinks too.

    Thanks for sharing!
