As promised I’ve replaced the ‘Recent Posts’ sidebar widget with ‘Popular Posts’ on my most popular site this morning. As a reminder, the point of this is to try and draw new readers to my best content. I’ve gone through these popular posts and cleaned them up in terms of making them stickier and optimizing the monetization.
Since this is an on-going experiment, I’ll keep you up to date. I have a feeling that this is going to a long way to adding value to my sites in terms of readership.
