If you are thinking of making infographics your main thing for your site, we have a couple of tips for you below. Plus, we also explore why guest blogging should not be a major part of your SEO plans.
Short answer: Infographic
Why is infographic more effective? It is because guest blogging may bring negative effects to both the host and the guest bloggers blog. A different type of resource does infographic and truth be told, it may take up the same amount of time and cost to come up with both types of content.
After effects of Google updates and Matt Cutts
According to Matt Cutts, head of search at Google, guest posts or short comments or posts on other blogs may be marked as spam by them. It is very difficult to assess if a short comment or short guest post will be seen as spam, even if it was really helpful. So most other people think, they’d rather not risk it and use other content marketing ways to boost their SEO ranking.
We totally agree on that point.
How to make cool infographics
Don’t just think that any type of infographic will bring in tons of traffic. Here are some pointers for making that cool and share-worthy image:
· Get your facts straight. There’s a ton of numbers involved when making infographics and this is the heart of all of your bar graphs, pie charts and progress bars. If you don’t have accurate facts, don’t even attempt to make an image.
· Numbers are meaningless if you don’t show perspective. Display results in percentages or as parts of a fraction so that readers can easily understand how the numbers relate to them.
· Sum up numbers in smaller scales like instead of saying 50 million users log on to Facebook everyday, you can say 2 out of 3 people in the world log on to Facebook everyday.
