Lists are your site's most valuable rankings. You want to spread your posts virally across the web, right? Lists are best way to attrack your visitors.
First list, the Lastest, is well known list of your most recent posts. Almost every blog uses it. Other types are unique and typical for viral sites. They are generated based on post views so the more visited your story is the higher it will be in the rankings:
- Trending - most viewed posts from last day
- Hot - most viewed posts from last month
- Popular - most viewed posts of all time (something like "Hall of Fame")
