5 Business Blogging Tips
If you are just starting a business blog here are 5 business blogging tips to help get you going.
Know who your readers are You have to know who your readers are if you expect to have a successful blog. Without the knowledge of who your readers are, how will you know what you are writing about on your blog is what your readers want? The best way to find out what your readers are most interested in is to track your posts to see what posts are being read the most and write more about those topics.
Post Often One of the most critical things with a blog is that you post often. Posting once a month will not cut it. If your visitors see that you post on a regular basis they are much more likely to return to your blog. On the other side if they see that you rarely post any new information it is very unlikely that they will come back. You should post several times a week if you expect to get regular readers to your blog.
Use Targeted Keywords For every post that you write it is imperative that you use a targeted keyword or keyword phrase for that post. Using keywords or keyword phrases in your posts will help people find your post when they run a search on what you wrote about in a particular post. Every post should use a different keyword. Take the time to do some keyword research on the subject that you intend to write about and use them in your posts.
Blogrolling Many blog owners don’t take advantage of the blogroll feature that every blog is equipped with. Linking to other blogs will get you some nice back links. Don’t hesitate to refer to another blog that has information on the topic that you are writing about in your post because not only are you giving the referring blog a link, you are getting a link to your blog from the blog that you linked to. The more often you add a link in your posts the better. Keep the blogroll feature in mind when you post and don’t be afraid to comment on other blogs because that will get you a link back to your blog as well.
Keep an eye on your traffic Keeping your eye on your traffic ties in with knowing who your readers are and what they want. To be successful with a blog or any website for that matter, you must know what your readers are most interested in and give it to them. If you write a post about getting more traffic to a website and a big percentage of your readers are reading that post it only stands to reason that you should be writing more on that subject. If you don’t have a tracking system in place on your blog you should get one setup right away because every day that passes by you are losing traffic.
