Lists are a great way to get good content on your site and they’re very popular, making them a great way to draw topic to your site. A good list goes a long way.

Who Rocks It
Experts of all things web, Mashable pretty much dominate the list blog posts. They include a huge range of topics with wide appeal, such as the 10 must-have social media apps and 5 rules for better web writing.

Make It Work
An excellent way to create content lists is to offer information about the coolest new gadgets for your industry or the most exciting advances in your field. Think of what is the buzz for your industry and use it. Lists are a great way to capitalize on the buzz, and are a relatively easy type of blog post to do, since they are mostly collections of existing content, written with your own spin.

For example, if you’re a real estate agent, do a top 5 list about the best places to eat in town. This will show you not only as connected to your community, but will establish you as an expert on the area.

If you are an accountant, do a list of the most common mistakes that people make on their taxes, and post it around tax time. You can capitalize on the buzz of that time of year, and show people that you care about their well-being, making you a trustworthy source and someone they might take their taxes to.

Lists can be fun and draw customers to your site by showing them that you have your finger on the pulse of your industry.
