HIGH CONTENT RELEVANCE
Content is very important when writing blog articles. Lets put it this way; readers and your potential customers will be drawn to your website depending on the kind of content displayed on the blogs. In this case, keep up with the latest and write about it. If good enough, other bloggers will link your blog in theirs hence a higher chance of traffic to your website. Keep the information rich and relevant to your line of business, products and services. The idea is to make yourself the ‘to-go-to person’ for the latest information and in the process drive traffic to your website. If you are in technology, keep your blogs rich on the latest gadgets, technological tools and tips.
BACKLINK YOUR BLOGS
