Website with a Blog
Fresh content is to Google what cocoa is to a chocoholic. They can't get enough of it. It's one of the biggest things that influence where Google decide to rank your website in their search engine results and, on average Google processes over 40,000 search queries every second - so it's pretty important.
And getting your site to the highly coveted top ranking of the search results page in Google, or one the first page at the very least, is essential if you're trying to grow your business, enter new markets, or even if you want to maintain the same levels of success that you're currently enjoying.
So what is a blog?
A blog is a discussion or information stream made up of a number of different entries (or 'posts') over time. But unlike your latest news or recent project sections of your website, a blog focuses on what's happening in your industry, the media, topical news and anything that's relevant to what you do but without directly promoting your own products or services.
They can be formal or informal, include pictures, videos and links and allow readers to submit comments or questions that you can choose to publish as part of the discussion. It's this type of engaging and regularly updated content that will help your website climb the rankings on search engine result pages as well as establish your brand as a thought leader, show your audience that you're passionate about what you do and that you like to stay on top of all the latest and greatest goings on in your industry.
