Blogging Is A Simple, Low Cost Way to Build Your Business
Blogging is a powerful tool for improving your website's SEO rankings. At Moonstar, we instruct our clients to write and post short, informative blogs to their websites and social media as frequently as possible. Regularly posting fresh and relevant content on your blog can help increase your website's visibility and attract more organic traffic.
According to Lisa Carroll, founder of Moonstar, “Blogging can improve your website's relevance and establish you as an authority in your field.” She adds, “By creating quality content that is germane to your target audience, you are establishing your website as a reliable source of information, and that can directly increase your website’s relevance when it is scanned by search engines, placing it higher in search results.”
Here’s how YOU can begin blogging to help improve your SEO rankings and learn how to choose the right topics to write about.
Blogging is a great opportunity to optimize your website for specific keywords. You can research keywords relevant to your industry and target audience and then incorporate them into your blog post. This can help your blog post rank higher in search engine results pages (SERPs) when people search for those keywords.
Blogging can also help you build backlinks to your website. When you publish quality content, other websites and blog owners may choose to link back to your post. Backlinks are an important factor in determining your website's ranking in search engines.
Blogging can also drive traffic to your website. By creating interesting and engaging content, you can attract more visitors to your website and keep them engaged with your brand. This can help improve your website's engagement and dwell time - both of which are important indicators of your website's quality and relevance to search engines. Be sure to promote your blogs on your social media accounts, such as LinkedIn and Facebook.
Choosing the Right Topics
To maximize the benefits of blogging for your SEO rankings, it's important to choose the right topics to write about. You are an expert at what you do, so write about what you know. Here are a few tips for guiding you to the right topics:
- Choose Topics Relevant to Your Industry: Make sure the topics you write about are relevant to your industry and target audience. This will help establish your website as a reliable source of information and improve its relevance and authority in the eyes of search engines.
- Choose Topics with High Search Volume: Choose topics that have high search volume so that you can optimize your blog post for those keywords and improve your website's visibility in search engines.
- Choose Topics that are “Evergreen”: Choose topics that will remain relevant for a long time so that your blog post can continue to drive traffic to your website for months or even years to come.
Carroll concludes, “So start writing! Blogging is a great tool for improving your website's SEO rankings, driving traffic to your site and providing relevance for your business. We highly recommend this as part of your marketing and branding plan.”
