Article Style #6: Top 10 Lists

This is a fun one, and real easy to crank out. These are also super easy to outsource because it doesn't take much brainpower to research and write these. The basic idea is to simply pick the "best of" something and put it in a list format.

It doesn't always have to be 10 things though! Top 3 and Top 5 are also popular, but really, if you want to go all out, you can do a Top 50 or Top 100.

My basic format I use is easy:

  1. Introduction
  2. Item 1 Title
  3. Item 1 Image
  4. Item 1 Text
  5. Repeat => 10
  6. Conclusion

These posts are also great opportunity to use affiliate links from multiple companies at once. If you had a post about the top 10 drones for kids, make sure to include an affiliate link for each one featured on the list!

If there's enough attention to each of the products, you can also write an individual review of each in the top list, then cross link your posts.

ProTip 1: Pick a #1 choice and include your affiliate link in the introduction and conclusion. Many people just skim, and long lists can be overwhelming. They just want to know what's the best

ProTip 2: If your competitors have a top 10 list, make yours better to be more clickable. Would you rather read a top 10 or top 20 list?

Thank you for your post but tell me do I have to review products only that pertain to my neich?

You should only review products related to your niche- if you have reviews of random things on your site then it would make no sense on your website
