Have you heard the latest news? We recently added the newest addition to the WP Tasty family of plugins! Drumroll ?, please…Presenting Tasty Roundups!
This all-new plugin makes creating beautiful, optimized roundup posts (no knowledge of coding necessary!) for your blog super easy. Curious how roundup posts can be beneficial to your blog? Keep reading to find out!
What is a roundup post?
Before we dive in, let’s cover what a roundup post is! You may have seen “Best Recipes” or “Top 10” posts on Google or Pinterest (i.e. 10 Best Taco Recipes, Top 10 Fall Porch Decorations). These are great examples of roundup posts. A roundup post is essentially a collection of links centered around one main theme you’ve curated for your audience. This post could include all of your own posts (archive roundup) or a combination of your posts as well as other bloggers (expert roundup).
This roundup on Pinch of Yum that features “10 Best Taco Recipes” is an excellent example of a roundup post (and it’s created with the Tasty Roundups plugin too!).
What are the benefits of creating roundup posts?
1. Increase your blog traffic
When you publish a roundup post, you will see an increase in your blog traffic! ? Roundup posts are highly shareable and are likely to receive a lot of traction on social platforms such as Pinterest. Popular keywords (i.e. best or top recipes, craft ideas, home projects, beauty tips) commonly used in roundup posts are also sure to do well on Google search results, resulting in an uptick in traffic. Roundups are often some of the most highly-trafficked blog posts!
2. Revive old posts
It can be easy for an old post from five years ago to gather dust. A roundup post is a perfect way to revive an old post. ? While we recommend sharing many of your most popular recipes or ideas in roundups, adding a few older, less-trafficked ones never hurts. Who knows, that five-year-old post might take off again! ?
3. Quick and easy to do
What do you do if you’re pressed for time and need to get a new blog post published ASAP? Enter the roundup post. Roundup posts are the perfect opportunity in this case. You’ll use the content you’ve already created when you put together a roundup post. Plus, if you use the Tasty Roundups plugin, it will automatically pull in all of the posts’ information, including images, titles, descriptions, and links, into your roundup. No more copy and paste! You only have to click a button, and voilà! Post written!
4. Increase internal links
Last but not least, internal links are essential for SEO. Why? They help Google understand and rank your website better. By providing Google with links to follow, you are signaling to Google which site pages are most important. If a post gets a lot of inbound links, this shows Google that this post is important, which can lead to that post ranking higher in search results. ✨
