SEO copywriting roundup: Hottest posts week of Dec. 10, 2013

We love numbered lists - in blog posts and on columns!

We love numbered lists – everywhere!

This week, we’re chock full of the content you – and I – can’t resist clicking: numbered lists and how-to’s! They never cease to pull me in, and as much as we like to make fun of those headlines – they still work! We love ‘em, our readers love ‘em and so the content creation world turns.

As much as we’d like to rise above writing list posts and how to’s, they’re pretty much an essential part of today’s content strategy for driving Web traffic to your site. We’re all in a rush. We need to find the answers to our questions quickly, especially since we’re often searching on the go.
