Blogging on Your WebsiteBlog articles are like pages in your main website, except that blog articles have a date, and eventually scroll away; while main website pages do not.
Should I Have a Blog on My Website?Blogging on your own website is a means to increase your Google ranking, and keep your audience engaged with your message (since they can subscribe to your blog) until they're ready to buy.
There is no ranking benefit in maintaining a blog off-site or republishing second-hand articles: It must be original writing on your own website in order to boost your Google ranking. Likewise “photo” blogs (without sufficient written content) offer little or no ranking benefit.
Write about things you know and love that are at least tangentially related to your business. Use your blog to cover topics that are too trivial or date-sensitive to have their own page in your main website, but are still fun, interesting, or helpful from your customers' point of view.
Including a blog in your website planning represents a commitment to write regularly. That's only for people who love to write about business topics. If you don't, and you don't have staff to do it for you, then blogging would be a chore, and you should not include a blog in your website planning.
Using a Blog for Announcements: If you don't like to write, but do have a steady series of events or other announcements to publish for an indefinite period, it is also acceptable to use your blog for brief announcements and mailing list (and feature it accordingly); however, using it for this purpose will not help your Google ranking.It's better not to have a blog than to have one without a steady stream of fresh new content, at a minimum of once or twice a month, 250 words per article, for at least a few years.
