Content Hacks: Learning From Your Most Popular Post

Content Hacks: Learning From Your Most Popular Post

Hello everyone. A quick question, what is your most popular post on your website? In this post, I am going to walk you through a straightforward process to help you learn from your most popular post and create more successful blog posts.

Better performing posts will drive more traffic to your website, which in turn should generate more leads and sales for you. I have assumed that you have an effective conversion process once visitors reach your site.

Your Most Popular Post

Which is your most popular post? You should know which one it is but just in case you do not know, here’s how to find out.

Open your  Google Analytics account

On the left menu you will see a list of options, click on ‘Behaviour’

Then click on ‘Site Content’

Next click on ‘Content Drilldown’

Content Drilldown

On the right of your screen you should now see a list of your most viewed content for the current week. Note – This image is not from our website’s Google Analytics report.

To find out the most viewed content of all time ensure that you change the start date in the top right corner to the date that analytics were first added to your site.

Google Analytics Date Change

It should now be clear which is your most popular post.

Read it again and ask yourself the following questions:

What made this post so popular ?

Was it the subject matter?

Was it the blog length?

How about the use of imagery or video?

In answering these questions you will have a template for future successful posts and you have your own benchmark to measure future posts against.
