Connect your G+ Account to Listly & Add Listly as a Contributor

Connect your G+ Account to Listly & Add Listly as a Contributor

We do the hard work for you when it comes to authorship.

You simply need to connect your G+ account to Listly and you need to tell G+ that Listly is a site you contribute to.

Do these two things and your avatar will be seen in Google search results. Items with avatars get chosen more on Google.

Create Meaningful Multi-Word Titles

Create Meaningful Multi-Word Titles

Lists & Items have titles

Carefully pick the first 3-4 words of your title (most important word’s first).

Listly automatically tags the list title as an H1 tag and the item titles as H2 tags.

Make it Human Readable. Find a way to express yourself in spoken work that also places keywords early in your title.

Seeding

Seeding

Start with 3-4 items. Avoid the temptation to add more.

Do not start with an empty list

Be willing to share your list on all platforms.

Communicate Your Expectations

Communicate Your Expectations

Use the list description.

Be brief but precise.

Be inspirational

Ask for One Thing.

Ask for One Thing.

Keep people focused. Ask for people to contribute ideas or voting - don’t ask for both. People will do nothing.

If you want people to embed your list - ask.

Pick great images.

Pick great images.

Visual Impact Matters

We allow you to upload custom images.

It’s worth the time to choose of create great images.

Embed Your Lists on Your Blog

Embed Your Lists on Your Blog

Put one list per page or blog post. You can include more than one, but I don’t recommend adding 10 lists to one page. Give each list a chance with it’s own title, intro and summary.

Share Items and Lists from Your Blog

Share Items and Lists from Your Blog

We want you to have the traffic. If your list is embedded and viewed on a blog post, you stand a chance of your list getting seen on our trending home page.

A trending list can pick up more views on Listly and more click-throughs to your blog. Each new view on Listly or a blog is another chance to hit the home page

Link your list back to your blog post

Link your list back to your blog post

There is a source field. Use it. It will also link your headline image back to your post.

If other people embed your list then you will get a backlink from their blog
