Blogging can be used by companies in any industry, and there are so many benefits to starting one. If you haven’t already, you’ll want to after we tell you three reasons why you need a blog on your site. 

What is a blog? 

A blog is an area on your website that is updated regularly with relevant content. You can publish blogs as often as you like, but the more content you create, the better. If you’re just starting a blog, you could aim for one blog every couple of weeks. 

When you’re creating a blog, it’s important that you use topics that are relevant to your industry. This will help to engage your audience. 

One of the reasons why blogs are so impressive is that they can be shared very easily. If you want to drive traffic to your blog, consider sharing new posts on social media for users to read. 

A blog can be any length you like, but it’s best to ensure they are over 300 words minimum. The highest-ranking blogs are usually longer as they provide in-depth information. The average word count will vary depending on your industry. 

Why you need a blog on your website 

There are so many reasons why it’s a good idea to have a blog on your site. Here are just a few benefits that you can expect. 

Increase traffic 

A blog gives your website the potential to show up more on search engines. With more chances to be seen on search engines, you may experience an increase in traffic. With a great website, more visitors could mean more sales too. 

If you’re encouraging users to visit your website, you need to ensure that your website works efficiently and provides users with valuable information. High-quality content will help to keep users on your site for longer, teaching Google that your site is engaging and helpful. 

Improve ranking position

It’s no secret that search engines love websites that are regularly updated with valuable content, and that’s what a blog can achieve. Therefore, you can expect to see an improvement in your ranking position as a result. 

Remember that there are over 200 factors that Google uses when determining where a website should rank. So, you should consider an SEO strategy if you want to see impressive results. An SEO agency will assess your current strategy and use various techniques to improve your ranking position. 

Position yourself as an expert 

By regularly providing website visitors with great content, you’re positioning yourself as an expert in your industry. This helps to build trust and can encourage visitors to work with you. 

It’s a good idea to break down your offering and find a range of titles you can use. You might choose to use the following blog title examples. 

  • How to guides 
  • Behind the scenes 
  • Listicles (like this!)
  • Vs - comparison articles
  • Question articles
