Neuroscientist W. Kintsch found that people process information in a list format more easily than in bulk pieces of text & data. Lists are compatible with short attention spans of readers, & suggest that they can obtain the solution to their questions in a set number of steps. Lists can help optimize your content for search engines — it helps search crawlers to identify list items easily &, when applied alongside a proper heading structure, make your content eligible for featured snippet.
Such headlines stand out in a stream of content as they usually contain numbers. The subject is placed within a category or classification system. The information looks trustworthy and well organized.
Listicles are closely followed by guides and how-to articles, driving 38% more traffic compared to other types of articles. These kinds of headlines offer readers the opportunity to learn something and demonstrate that the solution to their problem may be just a click away.
Video is perfect for cross-channel distribution, allowing you to share it across platforms. You can use it to address different user needs. Video can be used for converting leads, with >1/2 of consumers using the medium to influence their purchasing decisions. In terms of SEO, using video in your posts can increase engagement, boosting the time spent on page. If you host the videos on your own site, you can attract valuable backlinks.
Images help you to enhance and clarify your messaging, make your content more memorable, and keep short attention spans interested. Importantly, images can also be repurposed into a diverse range of media types, allowing you to tailor your graphics to different platforms and audiences.
There are also significant SEO benefits, with the potential to rank in image searches, as well as the possibility of leveraging emerging technologies such as visual search.
Longreads perform better because they provide in-depth information. Focus unique & engaging text, research, & relevance.
If your audience only wants a short answer to a particular question, then a longread is only going to turn them off. So analyze user intent before writing.
Three-level text structure (H2, H3, & H4) is enough to break down any article (even longer ones) into meaningful pieces, & improve readability & visual appeal.
This approach is recommended by Google, which advises against condensing large blocks of text on a page without proper schema. Headings help Google to better understand what the text is about, & to better frame it as a potential solution to search queries.
Correct use of H2, H3, & H4 tags enables you to segment your content into logical, digestible sections, divert attention to relevant user questions, & highlight the important ideas.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
