The 9 Types of Food Blog Posts That Drive Traffic – 2023

The world of food blogging is as vast as it is delicious. Whether you’re a seasoned food blogger or just dipping your toes into this culinary world, one of the critical questions that often come up is: What kind of food blog posts attract the most traffic? To help you navigate this, I have identified nine types of food posts that have historically attracted a lot of traffic:

  1. The Beautiful Recipe Post: This is your classic, mouth-watering food post. It usually features professional-grade photographs of a recipe. The secret ingredient to stand out? Style. A unique design and language style can help your beautiful roast chicken differentiate itself from the rest【7†source】.
  2. The Novel Recipe Post: Originality wins in this category. Can you create a recipe that is out-of-the-box and intriguing? These posts can go viral, like the “Slutty Brownies” recipe – a layered dessert with chocolate chip cookies, Oreos, and brownies【8†source】.
  3. The Pop Culture Recipe Post: Marrying food with pop culture can be a gold mine. A well-timed food post related to a trending topic or popular TV show can attract readers from outside the food world and tap into the cultural zeitgeist【9†source】.
  4. The Carefully Researched Post: Are you a food scientist at heart? Posts that dive deep into a topic, often backed by rigorous research, can garner significant traffic. For instance, testing and reviewing all the canned tomatoes in the supermarket can be a hit【10†source】.
  5. The Eat Your Way, Cook Your Way Through Something Post: Challenge yourself and document the journey. Readers love this. The classic example is the “Julie/Julia Project”, where a blogger cooked through all the recipes in Julia Child’s cookbook【11†source】.
  6. The Restaurant Post: Your detailed and fair restaurant review can be a beacon for people searching for information about the restaurant and potentially link to your post【25†source】.
  7. The Instructional Post: How-to posts are a favorite. Provide step-by-step instructions, preferably with process photos, and watch your traffic grow【25†source】.
  8. The Personal Post: Invite your readers into your life with personal stories related to food. These posts build a connection with your audience and have the potential to resonate deeply with them, attracting a lot of traffic【25†source】.
  9. The List Post: Lists are an internet darling. Posts like “10 Signs You’re in A Good Restaurant” are immediately appealing and are a great way to showcase content buried in your archives【25†source】.

It’s important to remember that the effectiveness of each type of post may vary based on your audience, your writing style, and current trends. Mix and match these post types to keep your blog diverse and engaging.
