What to do with Popular Blog Posts

Hi everyone!

So, I’ve noticed that I have 1 blog post (just one, don’t get too excited) that performs exceptionally well ever since I first posted it several years ago. And even without any purposeful effort on my part, it does appear at the tippy top of Google search results. I’ve applied this sort of effort on some of my other posts, but haven’t been able to repeat that success anywhere else.

In case you’re curious, the post is a travel post about a huge personal pool that can be rented for parties: Thornton’s Pool.

But my big question here is: what do I do with this popular post? I feel like I should be leveraging it somehow. I’ve added affiliate links there, and also links to other travel posts on my blogs. I’ve also added a form to subscribe to my email list.

However, all those links get 0 activity. None.

So I’m curious, what should I be doing on that post? Does anyone have any suggestions on what to try, or examples of what you’ve done in similar situations? Any ideas would be incredibly helpful as I am stumped!

I hope you all are having a great day!

  1. Congrats on the popular post! I have no expertise in leveraging it, but I did want to celebrate with you that people are reading what you wrote! ๐Ÿงก

  2. It interesting isn’t it – does it actually get view or appear in search results. It might be becasue Thornton’s is a popular brand of Chocolate… at least over here. I used to have a post like this on making muffins but it was all junk so I deleted the post.

    1. Oh neat, I wasn’t aware that was also a popular chocolate brand – maybe one day I’ll be able to try it! The searches are definitely for the pool version however, since the dashboard is able to capture the search term, and the post is getting viewed as well. Just, then everyone leaves the post and goes away. Not sure how to interest them further… ๐Ÿ™
