Throw your best content into the spotlight
An effective blog posts page helps people find your best content. Whether it’s listing popular posts, a coming soon page, or any other important pages, you have an opportunity to put the most important part of your website on the very front:
With the Content Spotlight widget in Marketers Delight, you can show that content off in a prominent way throughout your site (see examples to the right →)
How to add the Content Spotlight Widget to your sidebar in one easy step
From your WordPress dashboard, go to Appearance > Widgets and drag the Content Spotlight widget into the Main Sidebar area, just like in the screenshot above.
Play around with the different text options and come up with the most compelling title you can to spotlight your content. You can even get creative with your design and upload a background image — this is what will really make your it stand out.
Content spotlight is gold. I’m now thinking of using a click tracker to see how effective they really are. I know my MD banner gets clicks so I’m sure they do too. Knowing how many will be cool though.
