Top posts from second quarter 2014
Did you miss something? Below you’ll find a list of my most popular blog posts from last quarter, as measured by Google Analytics.
Posts with a personal story often do well, as with my #1 post about my bad experience with LinkedIn, and my #10 confessions post. I noticed that my e-newsletter with the “Ouch, LinkedIn” subject line also pulled more readers than usual. Some titles and subject lines are more powerful than others.
The #2 post surprised me. I didn’t think this post would do as well as it did. I think the practicality of the “20 topics for your financial blog” appealed to many.
Posts featuring outside experts did well. They’re highlighted with red text below.
