How often to write and publish a blog-article?
Is it enough to write now and then, maybe once a month? No definitely not! Why not? Search Engines direct visitors to your website according to content. But content is not the only thing that Google is paying attention to. Google is noticing how often you publish new content on your website – your blog. The more you publish new content the more you get links in the Google search engine and the more higher you get in the Google indexing. So how often to publish? It is important to publish every week, even twice a week if possible
When to publish your blog-articles?
According to research the best time to publish content is Tuesday afternoons and Thursday afternoons. Why so? In the mornings people are busy with their work. If you publish in the morning, especially on Monday when everyone has loads of emails to go through, then it is likely that your blog will end up in the trash. Publish your articles in the afternoons since according to research, people are more receptive after lunch.
Always include one or more images. A good service to use to get cheap images is www.istockphoto.com service. Also very important is to add links to lead outside your website. You can add links to other websites featuring the same question, or resource websites. Remember to add titles into your images and to your links. Open links in a new window, not to lead visitor off your website.
How to advertise your blog-article?
Add a Facebook comment form at the end of your blog-articles. Use the Facebook Comment form to add a comment to your blog-article and this way you can advertise the article on your Facebook wall. Ask your Facebook contacts to comment your article. Add your blog-article also to Twitter, Lindkedin, Pintarest, Google+ and other Social Media service.
