When asked to assess the marketing performance of their
blogs, the majority claimed to get“some results”while
roughly one-quarter claimed“strong results.”
In 2015, the average time bloggers invested in
writing posts inched up, but in 2016 it busted
well past the 3-hour mark.
60% spend 3 hours or less on their
posts. Only 12% blast past 6 hours,
but represent the largest sector of
those that report strong results.
Shorties shrink.The
percentage of posts
that are 500 words or
less is half what is was
two years ago.
Biggies boom.The
percentage of posts that
are 2,000+ words long
has doubled every year.
Longer’s stronger.
Bloggers that create
longer posts report
stronger results.
Social media promotion
takes 1st place in promotion at 96%.
Results ranking: 5th.
2-year growth rate: 2%
(Most have been using social media all along)
Influencer outreach
is 4th with 25% usage.
Results ranking: 2nd.
2-year growth rate: 62%
SEO promotion

2-year growth rate: 13%

2-year growth rate: 60%
The majority of bloggers
use more than one image
in a typical post.
The use of video
has climbed to 15%.
Less than 3% include
audio in their posts.
The average length of blog posts has increased each year.
1,050 words is the average for 2016, up 19% from 2015.
In 2016, bloggers reported
increasing promotional activity
in ALL of the following channels.
But look out: the more
popular tactics are the least
likely to produce strong
results — and vise-versa.
With finite resources, bloggers moved toward
publishing less often this year compared to last.
Daily blogging
is down 53%
Weekly blogging
is up 7%
(most common frequency)
Monthly blogging
is up 38%
For three consecutive years, Orbit Media has surveyed 1000+
business bloggers to assess their publishing habits.This year, in
addition to aiming to learn how business bloggers work, we
probed deeper to learn which tactics work for them.
