Blogging for Business?

According to Hubspot Companies that blog get 55% more visitors to their websites.  That alone is pretty impressive as far as I am concerned.

Blogging created 97% more inbound links to their websites!  That number is staggering...how could you not blog with a statistic like that staring you in the face?  Of course content is an issue but we have content everyday!  Want content look around you.

Bogging created 434% more indexed pages than companies that did not blog.  Link to your website pages from your blog and watch your ratings grow for both your blog and website!  These are not little numbers to brush off as, "other" people write better or have more to say.  These are real numbers that can affect your business and company.

Make sure your blog is linked to your website and your Website is linked to your blog.  This is one of the better practices for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) results.  Using keywords, phrases and blended information like photos and videos in your blog posts will help you in search engines as well. People are influenced how a website and blog look.  If you do not look professional your site will not sustain traffic or get the referrals you should generate to build momentum.

Mix information don't concentrate on you, your services or company or you become an infomercial and lose readership.  Keep it interesting, offer regional facts, community information along with personal interests.

You can create content that informs, shares and updates.  This changes your perception by the reader and gets them to come back again.  This also may get your blog shared by re-posting or linking to your post. Now you have a reason to blog for your business.

Those are amazing statistics but I do believe them.  I have the linking back and forth that you describe and I have seen my main website climb in rankings since I've started blogging.  You've helped with the "science" of why that is happening.

Hi Mark, I shouldn't mislead you, I am 3 weeks away from finishing my master's in Website Design and Internet marketing.  It is like the shoemaker, never has new shoes.  I am starting to implement these methods on my own sites.  It works and will make you amazed how many additional places your business listings and your personal name will show up, if done right.  Thanks for the comments Mark.
