I have chosen very varied topics but the features that I would like to point out to you can be used for blogs of many different types.

1) Examples of WordPress blogs on fitness and nutrition: Runtastic

Runtastic blog

runtastic is a fitness app that has been hugely successful thanks to the combination of sport with social media. Let’s go immediately to see the Italian blog.

The home page is characterized by large images and little text: in fact, we limit ourselves to the title within the image and three preview lines of the content. But under each title, in addition to the publication date, there is also the evaluation of the article with the use of the classic stars.

Having entered the “Success stories” in the menu was, in my opinion, a very clever idea, an alternative to the classic “testimonials” and certainly more effective.

I am sure that here you will find many ideas for the site of your fitness activity.

2) Examples of WordPress blogs at work: Digital Nomads

THE Digital nomads they are a reference point for anyone who decides to undertake a job without giving up the freedom to move around the world.

Other useful tips: the right hosting

As we often recommend, good structure or attractive graphics are not enough for the success of a blog. What is needed is also a good quality of everything underneath: the “invisible” part of a blog is fundamental.

So take inspiration from the best examples of WordPress blogs also as regards performance and reliability.

Successful blogs, in fact, rely primarily on excellent quality hosting. If you choose SiteGround, for example, you can be sure that your site will never have down periods, thanks to the guaranteed uptime percentage of 99.99%.

In addition, performance and speed always at maximum are guaranteed both by the highest quality hardware, thanks, for example, to the SSD disks and the Cloudflare CDN, and by software that improves performance, such as the SuperCacher system.

The choice of the best hosting also guarantees greater security, since cutting-edge and always up-to-date malware protection systems and hacker attacks are active.

Finally, the best hosts provide specialized technical support available 24 hours a day, such as SiteGround Italia assistance, also available in our language.

If you have decided to create your WordPress blog and buy a hosting plan on SiteGround, using our link you will also have our free WordPress course! You will learn how to make your blog and find all the advice you need.

If, on the other hand, you already have a WordPress blog and you are looking to improve it, I recommend that you immediately transfer your site to SiteGround: you can use the new SiteGround Migrator tool, a very simple plugin that will allow you to complete the passage independently.

Other useful tips: Yoast SEO

What can you still copy from these successful WordPress blog examples? Definitely their SEO monitoring and management system. Almost all major WordPress blogs use Yoast SEO as a tool to improve their ranking.

If you are starting, you can also use the free version, which certainly has excellent features to improve your content and start seeing some results within the SERP.

If you are already a little further ahead, I recommend instead using the Yoast premium version, which allows you to set multiple keywords for the same page and also helps you in creating internal links.
