Great research from Backlinko on the best formats for evergreen content.
1. List posts and how-to posts are the two “most evergreen” content formats. Presentations and press releases tend to be the least evergreen.
2. Podcast episodes very rarely get shared over time. In fact, podcasts are 4.28x less likely to be evergreen compared to a list post.
3. Content that’s heavily shared on Reddit has a high likelihood of becoming evergreen.
4. Articles with lots of engagement on Twitter very rarely end up receiving shares and links over the long term.
