Holiday Top (11) List: The Games your Readers are Buying

This is the second in a series of weekly blog posts centered around the holiday products your readers are buying, based on actual VigLink sales data.

November and December are the biggest online shopping months of the year! We’re here to help you get your site ready for the holidays.

To start with, we’re sharing a top “ten” list each week that features the products in a particular category that readers’ are most interested in buying (based on actual VigLink sales data). The goal of each list is to help you understand what your readers are buying this holiday season, so you can create content and links around each item.

How to Use the List

Here’s how to use each list to increase your site’s revenue:

  • Create a blog entry, forum thread or webpage that features the list, a short explanation of each item, and a link where readers can find out more and purchase the item.


  • If you don’t think the entire list would be relevant to your particular set of readers, select the most relevant items from the list to post in a blog entry or forum thread. Provide a short explanation for each one and a link where readers can purchase it.

Note: copy and paste each link exactly as it appears below into your site. Modified links may not receive credit for clicks or purchases.
