Blogs are indexed fast by search engines. Opinions about the reasons why vary at the moment but I compare blogs with websites and blog posts with webpages.

First and foremost, you need to choose keywords for your give me ideas. When it comes to blog writing, you need to spread the keyword uniformly all through your article.

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.

Since 2003, blogs have been increasing in popularity. People have blogged about current events, war, politics, television shows, television stars, terrorism, and almost any other topic you can imagine. Blogs are used to inform people about services and products by allowing people to post reviews of specific services and products. They are used to stay up-to-date on events that occur within families, clubs, organizations, and businesses. Blogs are used to swap recipes, to learn, and to vent. If you can think it, it is probably on a blog someplace.

Link your blog to your websites v.v. People often forget that it’s the linking that makes the Internet work. Linking all your sites, even the free ones, together can boost your link popularity. Since blogs are a lot of fun you sometimes forget to link to and from them. Don’t let this happen to you.

Simply put, blogs can help increase the prominence of your main website. As we all know, traffic is the lifeblood of every online business, and 80% of the traffic that can be generated for any website would come from the search engines. To secure a good position in the search engine results, you’d need to increase your website’s page rank. And one way of making this happen is to have as many back links as possible. Back links refer to the number of websites linking to your main website.

I still hate blogging. But life is not full of doing only those things we like. Use your blog if you are serious about promoting your business. And use your blog if you want to promote yourself. Don’t expect a million hits a minute but don’t be surprised if your blog turns out to be a positive addition to your web presence. I certainly was and continue to be amazed at the results.
