  • SEO TIPS: Making your Blog Count

    Here are some very good reasons you need a blog, which I have mentioned before – all or any of these are good reasons to have a blog of your own!

    • Blogs can increase your traffic!
    • Blogs can add credibility to you, your brand and your website or product.

    • Blogs can increase your visibility on the web, and be easily linked to social networking sites.
    • Blogs can make you seem more approachable and friendly, even if your business is very technical.
    • Blogs can bring in free links as bloggers link to you and users link to you from their websites and social sites start picking up on your posts.

    There are plenty of  blogging platforms to choose from when you get ready to kick off your blog. Our personal preference, and the most popular of all, is WordPress. WordPress is a terrific, easy to use platform. You can even take a thriving WordPress blog and re-host it on your own server!  There are plenty of useful plug-ins available to help you, and options and support forums can help with customization issues (although support is minimal if you host the blog yourself. Explore what is right for your needs and then just do it!
