several related pieces of information. Here are a few examples of a list articles:
"10 Energy Saving Tips for Winter"

to" articles include:
"How to Drive Traffic to Any Web Site for Free"
"How to Keep Your Tomatoes Alive"
"How to Install a New Hard Drive"
"How to Download Unlimited Music Files Legally"
This type of article is popular because people just love to learn how to do something new.
The Review Article
What is one of the main ways that people find out about which new products to
buy, and which to avoid? They read review articles. A review article is the
result of someone reviewing a particular product or service and then writing a
review about it.
There are several slightly different approaches you can use for review articles
but here are the essential items that must be included:
- What does the product promise?
- How well does it deliver on that promise?
- Is it good value and if so, who should buy it?
