Do you want to attract new visitors to your blog? Do you want them to find your blog through Google? Google favors websites with fresh content with high page rank. Blogs are updated frequently, and it looks like Google is starting to give higher rank to websites with pages that are updated frequently.
Brandon Leibowitz of Pandia Search Engine News writes “Google loves to see fresh, new, original, updated content on web pages.” Important information should be available to your visitors in one click. It should appear on your navigation so that people can get details on your product or services immediately, without having to plow through the blog.
Blogging is important, but it is just one element in good Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
