Listicle


A listicle is an asset that consists of a list, such as a list of recommendations. Listicles are designed for use when a publisher wants to tell a story in list format—a list of top restaurants, or best museums to visit, or great sports teams.

Tip
If necessary, create and upload images you will use in the listicle. For details, see Image.

To create a listicle:

  1. In the header, click add.
  2. From the Create list, select Listicle.
  3. Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
  4. Complete your site's workflow and publish the listicle.

Focus Keyword displays an analysis of the keyword in the Focus Keyword Density field.
Focus Keyword DensityIndicates the number of times the Title and Description fields contain the Focus Keyword as a percentage. For example—

  • The focus word is content.
  • There are 50 words in the Title and Description fields combined.
  • content appears only once in both fields.
In this scenario, the focus keyword density is (1 ÷ 50) × 100 = 2.00.



As a best practice, use a focus keyword in your Title and Description fields that have a density of 3.00 or greater.



Note: Computing keyword densities requires toggling off Disable SEO Recommendations.
