Big Names / Top content – Video vs Audio vs Slides vs Lists vs Graphics from Nick Kellet

Top Content Deck

Here’s some highlights from his analysis:

I expected to see more slides and more video embedded in posts. Many people do use video (78.6%), but only 14.7% of posts actually include video. This was a surprise.

I thought more people were actively using audio/podcasting (30% of blogs, but only 4.5% of posts)

I’d previously thought the age of lists in blogs was around 1/3 (in this analysis we dug deeper than the blog post title – many blogs include list content that is not referenced in the title).

One best practice I’ve seen is more people are placing multiple forms of sharable media in a single post. There is a lot of doubling up e.g. an infographic, coupled with a list to recap the key learnings in text.

A number of smart bloggers are including photos with text to make it much more shareable. ie they are preventing their headline from being separated from their visual images. This is a smart strategy that works well both on Facebook and Pinterest.

These are the sites referenced in the audit.
