Everyone knows that Blogs are the future of the internet, they are search engine friendly and get listed very quickly, which is why many people are hosting their blogs on their own servers now because they see the importance to their business. The last thing any Internet Business Owner wants to happen is that their blog is shut down at Blogger or any other free blog hosting site.
Learn About RSS. RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is one way to “publish” your blog to the world. There are many free RSS readers that you can use to keep track of the blogs you are starting to read. Pick one (there are many) by searching for “Free RSS Reader” in your favorite search engine.
With blogs, size doesn’t always matter. If a blog has thousands and thousands of readers, that doesn’t mean it’ll be a slam dunk for you. Look at the comments section of the blog to see if people are actually providing feedback.
Advertising your blogs is much simpler than advertising your web pages. It is not necessary to submit your blogs to each search engine as you would do with your web pages. You can use pinging services to ping your blog whenever you make a posting. By pinging you inform several blog directories about your online blogs and your new postings. You can also set your blogs to automatically ping whenever a new posting is made. This makes advertising your blogs a simple process. However, you can still go ahead and register with individual blog directories and search engines.
BLOGS ARE MAGNETS FOR SEARCH ENGINES: Go on, get on to Google and, whatever topic you search, you’ll inevitably see that the search engines have thrown up a number of Blogs in the top ten results. This is because Blogs are constantly showing fresh, new and key word friendly content just like your web pages should; that’s a Blog’s very reason for being. Imagine the value to you of having your own Blog pop in the top end of search results. The ubiquitous search engines clamor to highlight fresh, appropriate content – they love it. Constantly re-newed and freshened Blogs leave stale, ageing (and rarely updated) web sites for dead.
Interactive, Dynamic and Worthy – blogs are very dynamic masterpieces and interactive too. You can see your blog immediately as you post it. Unlike ezines, newsletters and forums, Website for connections present a meticulous picture on any issue. Moreover, a blogger has freedom to express on sundry topics as well.
Maintenance Free, Spam free and Economical – With so many viruses on the run emails, ezines are filtered out with Spam filters. This is not the case with the blogs, because they are not delivered to the people. Blogs are written and published via downsized blog softwares, which are also very easy to use and maintain. What’s more, you do not have to list your blogs unlike ezines or newsletters on the server, and thereby you can save money on running and maintaining a blog.
The quickest and easiest way to set up a blog (and it is free!), is to go to http://www.blogger.com and follow the directions. They say it takes five minutes. I admit that it took me a bit longer and I am still playing with it, but it is easy! Be sure to check out the many templates and also have an idea (or several) for the name of your new blog. Most of the common ones are already taken.
