Yesterday I wrote a blog post about how you can get more traffic to your website for free. One thing that I might have failed to mention was that the post was centered around the assumption that you have a blog; and more specifically, a self hosted WordPress blog.
So I’m going to back WAY up and let you know what a blog is. A “blog” is short for “Weblog” and it’s basically an online journal. Most companies today have both a website and a blog.
Think of it where your website has all of your important information that is more “static” in nature: it doesn’t change that often.
Your blog, on the other hand, is filled with the most up to date, “as it is happening” type of information about your industry and your company.
The search engines LOVE blogs, because when managed properly, blogs are full of fresh, relevant content. As Google comes back to visit your site and notices more and newer content, your site is rewarded.
The structure for people that is the most effective is to have their main website located at wwww.mymainwebsite.com and then put their blog on www.mymainwebsite.com/blog.
So how do you even set up a blog, if you don’t have one? Well, we have a really great resource where you can set up your own WordPress blog for only 1 penny.
There’s a set of step-by-step instructions and videos showing you (or your intern) exactly how to set up your own self-hosted WordPress blog for only 1 cent. Even if you’re not technical, you can easily follow along with the instructional videos.
But what about if you simply don’t have the time to watch the videos and install the blog yourself? Have you ever thought about hiring a blogging intern for your company?
Not only could they set your blog(s) up, but they could even write some of the blog posts for you! We’ll have another blog post for you in the next day or so showing you the best way to hire an intern to do your blogging.
There is no question that WordPress is the best blogging platform available. So even if you have a blog set up on another blogging platform, I would still tell you to go ahead and make sure that you have a blog set up on WordPress, on your own domain. To get all of that done for a single penny, just go here.
