List.ly Builds Traffic To Your Blog
I started on List.ly a few months ago quite casually. Made a list or two and followed a few lists to get the hang of it. Didn’t think much about it until I checked my blog’s analytics recently and realized I was getting a lot of traffic from them. It ranked #4 for me before Twitter or Triberr! So what would you do? Build more lists and follow more lists right?
I got so excited I wanted to share it with you as a few of you didn’t know what it was when I asked on my Facebook page if anyone was using List.ly. I like how quick and easy it to set up and use. I try to remember when I find a great blog post to add it to the list. There are so many interesting lists on List.ly like Romantic Songs, Senseo Coffee Pods, Mind Blowing Movies, Dogs Training and Care to name a few. The blogging related ones include some like: Social Media Tools in Beta Q4, Best Grammar Checkers, (I just added Tim Bonner’s recent post there) Free Photo Editing Websites and many more useful lists you can follow. The beauty of List.ly is that anyone can add to your lists, not just you. When you add to someone else’s list it does go into a que for approval.
What Does It Do? Listly builds traffic exponentially!
How Does List.ly Build Traffic to Your Blog or Website?
List.ly adds structure to your content and drives traffic to your blog. You can share via Twitter and Facebook but why give the big social sites all your content? Listly wants to see engagement on our blogs via their lists to help you generate more traffic and engagement right on your own blog, that is how List.ly builds traffic right to your blog.
Embed – You can embed lists right on your blog or website as you can see below. You need to get a publisher key # first and then you are ready to roll. They offer a plugin but you can use Java code to embed and forgo the plugin.
Share – You can share your lists via multiple social networks to drive people back to your blog. All the action should take place at your own hub, right?
Curate – The lists are not just your content, but content you curate from other places on the web. Pieces of information you gather and want to share with others. Information that others are looking for. You begin to you know your readers right? Why not give them the information that they are looking for? You become their source of information. Imagine what this can do for your business blog too if you have one?
List.ly claims “Links are short-lived but embeds are long lasting”. So true, isn’t it?
