How a Blog can increase traffic to your website

Add a Blog to your business website to increase your visitor traffic.If you already have a website for your business, you should start blogging to increase traffic to your website.

You may be a little hesitant to get started, you may not feel like you have a lot to share, not much that would be interesting to others.  That just means that you are already thinking in the right way; you want to write articles that are interesting and informative and helpful.

Another article Marketing Your Small Business with Blogging gives you a good start in creating your own blog.

Blog articles actually help your business website in two ways:

  • each article makes your website larger, and provides fresh, new content, which will give you a better search engine ranking,
  • if you write interesting, helpful, and useful articles, more people will come to your website
    • they will start subscribing to your articles with RSS feed and build more interest in your website,
    • they will get to know you through their comments and dialog with your responses,
    • your website visitors become  more interested in what you are selling.

searching on the internetThere are so many resources shared on the Internet, to spark your ideas for your own blog articles.  Think of an interesting topic related to your business and start searching.

Get started sharing a bit of yourself, making new social connections, letting others know what an interesting and helpful person you are.

Article Comment Benefit

Your business can benefit if you take a few minutes to comment on a blog post, an article, or in a discussion.

How does this work? A portion of the basis for your business website’s ranking by search engines is the number of hyperlinks to your website. More links from related websites = better ranking. (For example, it would be better for your yoga website to have more links to it from articles about natural health and exercise equipment than from articles about motor oil.)

And discussions, posts, and articles from related websites can share knowledge that can be helpful to you and your business. And if you leave interesting, helpful, and informative comments, the others who read your comments will want to come to your website to find out more about your business.

Some blog posts, discussions, and articles have “do follow” links for their commenters. This means search engines will follow links in those comments to the commenters’ websites, and the commenters’ website will get credit for a link.

There are some general rules for “nettiquette” (Internet etiquette) for leaving comments.
1. It’s nice to give your own name (or just first name or nick name) and what you do, but not to give your name as your product (“Zoomo Potato Peeler model 3.1”).
2. In your comment, respond to something specific about the post. If you agree, add to the conversation (from the article and the other commenters). If you disagree, try to express some aspect that you do agree with, and then try to disagree in a nice way, just like you were at a meeting and talking with others in person.
– It is NOT OK to just say “Hi! Nice article. Thank you!”
Brief comments like that with no content do not add to the conversation, and will probably not get posted.

“Do follow” links are part of the Web2.0 change and the social media evolution, in which the Internet becomes a place for exchange of your ideas and concepts.

Building backlinks (links back to your website) from related websites is part of a good SEO (Search Engine Optimization) plan for any website.

Do you have some other ideas for building links back to your small business website that have worked for you ? You can share your ideas with others here.  We’d like to hear your thoughts.
