Blogging for Local Businesses: Why & How to Get Started
With small business owners today feeling like blogging is a wasted effort, Lissa Duty recognized how important it is to highlight the benefits of blogging.
The simple fact is this – publishing new blog posts on a business’ website helps the business place higher in organic search for keyword phrases and long-tail queries. Publishing blog posts also helps Google better understand the products and services the business offers. The more often a business publishes new pages and posts, the more often Google will crawl that business’ website.
Websites that do not have content published on a regular basis become stagnant. As this happens, they can lose placement in search results for specific queries. Prospective customers that visit such a website notice this lack of updates and often conclude the business is no longer relevant – or even that it’s closed for good.
In this session, Lissa will present and describe Google Analytics data that demonstrates exactly how valuable blogging can be. She will also share tips on how to come up with blog topics, along with some best practices for writing content that your readers and the search engines will appreciate.
