1 Outstanding Reason I love top 10 lists!

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

We often submit articles to the usual design blog submission sites such as Design Bump and Design Float andĀ receiveĀ a lot of traffic from these (thank you to the good people from these sites!). However, I have been reading a lot of blog articles lately about how to boost traffic to your blog. Many of them mention that Top 10 lists (or any number for that matter – top 20 website designs or 17 great photoshop tricks etc – you get the idea) are a great way to bring a huge amount of traffic to your design blog though social networking sites such as Digg.

I have to say that I was skeptical so you may have noticed that we have been doing some experimenting here on the eightyone design blog with the sort of posts we have been publishing lately. For those of you that haven’t read our last few blog articles, here are the last 5 titles:
