Blogging For Business
If you have been engaged in SEO for some time now, then you already know that search engine spiders love crawling “new” and “original” content. Every blog entry you create is an excellent opportunity for you to put those keywords into play. Long tail keywords written in your posts can bring you traffic through long tail search; you don’t even have to consciously optimize your posts.
Each new blog post becomes a new site page, and every page itself has a separate ranking and traffic capability. The more fresh pages you publish, the more opportunities you have for higher ranking and traffic. It is a form of free advertisement. If you blog frequently enough, you will see that over time, traffic to your posts become more and more steady.
Publish good blog content to give people reasons to share your links. Blogging is an effective way of obtaining new inbound links, because your new entries serve as a portal to intrinsic information that sites can easily link to.
Content and social media make a good pair for online marketing. Current and timely blog content allows you to garner more inbound links. Social media sites give you room to syndicate your content and extend your network. With every social networking site you join, you earn unlimited opportunities for inbound links. Search engines are always on the lookout for social media links, and with these links come visitors.
A business blog does not only place value on your brand, but gives you a niche in the industry. Blogging about your brand and the field it belongs to gives you credibility as an industry expert. This goes two ways: When you blog, you also showcase ability, experience and knowledge on the industry, while your readers acquire know-how and industry facts through you.
When you upload new content and links to your blog, you increase traffic to your website. Add this to the traffic generated by the links you share in social media marketing and you’ll have a bigger audience sooner than later. The blog content and links provide organic traffic, while social media send immediate traffic. Make it a point to regularly write fresh content with links. Just think of how much traffic that can generate for your brand!
