Blogging is an important part of most websites, it’s one of the best ways to attract new traffic to your website and in an ever increasing world of competition, standing out is getting more difficult. Not to fear, we have some hot tips to give you that leading edge and actually get your blogs read!
A study undertaken by Hubspot found that the more blogs a website published per month, the more traffic they got to their website. Businesses that published sixteen or more blogs a month got 3.5 times more traffic than those that published up to 4 blogs a month.
Now just placing blogs up on your site is not the magical formula for success. You first have to create AWESOME content, and a good way to go about this is to think first about writing about something completely new (that you haven’t seen before). Or, take something you have read about and write it in an easier-to-digest way. Or, finally, take something new and write about it in a new way. Either way, great content will deliver great links back to your blog.
Once you have the great blog entry, you need to promote it, below are some great ways to get the message out there!
- Share on Social Media
