  17. 17. Experience Columbus’ Content Audit What we learned: • Our blog has seen a 200% increase in traffic year-over- year. When we looked deeper we found: • Posts about a single attraction or restaurant underperformed • Posts written by guest bloggers were among the least-read • Posts focused on lists and tips were the most-read • 25% of our content brought 60% of our site traffic • The worst-performing 30% of posts brought just 7% of site traffic
  18. 18. Experience Columbus’ Content Audit How we changed gears: • We are extremely selective and hands-on with guest bloggers • When partners ask for a feature, we incorporate their message into a post with a broader theme – less content, but many more readers • We write more evergreen content so we can promote it longer • We plan editorial calendars quarterly to capitalize on trends and focus efforts
