The explosion in ETFs has produced plenty of income and dividend focus funds. In fact, ETFdb.com tags more than 180 funds as “Dividend ETFs.” That’s a lot of different funds and ways to get your income fix. So how do you know which ETF is right for you? Luckily, InvestorPlace has you covered. Here are five great dividend ETFs that pay great yields and can be used to boost your income...

One of the earliest dividend ETFs remains one of the best and easiest to get exposure to the theme. This would be the iShares Select Dividend ETF (NYSEARCA:DVY). The WisdomTree U.S. SmallCap Dividend Fund (NYSEARCA:DES) is a perfect fund to add a basket of smaller dividend payers. At $339 million, the Invesco S&P 500 BuyWrite ETF (NYSEARCA:PBP) is the oldest and largest buy-write ETF. First Trust NASDAQ Technology Dividend ETF (NASDAQ:TDIV) is the only ETF to specifically hone in on tech stock dividends. Investors can score more income by breaking out their passports. The SPDR S&P International Dividend ETF (NYSEARCA:DWX) still remains one of the best ways to do just that.

Dividends play a key role in compounding returns over time and can form a large part of our portfolio return. I’ve made a list of other value-adding dividend-paying stocks for you to consider for your investment portfolio.

This company is a high-quality BDC income play. It continues to be defensively positioned with its largely first and second lien investment portfolio. The BDC has considerable interest rate upside. The company still sells for a sensible NII-multiple. An investment in the stock comes with an 8.3 percent dividend yield (not factoring in special dividends).

TPG Specialty Lending, Inc. (TSLX) continues to make an attractive value proposition for income investors that seek high recurring dividend income. TPG Specialty Lending invests in relatively secure first lien debt, which protects the company with downside protection if the economy slides into a recession. Further, TPG Specialty Lending has considerable interest rate upside in a rising rate environment, which leads to special dividend potential. An investment in TSLX yields 8.3 percent.

This company shares have surged lately. The business development company still makes a compelling investment proposition based on three factors that I discuss in the article. Its shares are overbought, but not yet overvalued. An investment in the stock yields 9.2 percent.

Hercules Capital, Inc.'s (HTGC) shares have soared lately, raising the question of whether income investors should sell some of their shares or not. Hercules Capital is a high-quality BDC with significant interest rate upside in a rising rate environment. However, shares have had a good run and they have now entered widely overbought territory. What should investors do now?
