WordPress Blogging

wordpress bloggingThe word BLOG started out as an abbreviation for Business Log, but now it is universally used to describe a place where someone either records useful information for the public, media releases or even just has an online journal! WordPress blogging is the most common way to do it!

The reason WordPress is so great for blogs is that you can set one up in minutes. It provides a flexible tool for blog creation, as well as automating the way your entries are updated every time you make a new entry.

WordPress Blogging!

WordPress is easy to use, very scalable and I must say that it just keeps getting better and better.

When you blog regularly, WordPress makes sure that search engines like Google, yahoo and Bing take notice of your site and give it some authority.

Use the keywords you want people to find you under!

It makes total sense that if you use the words “Purple Wooden Spoons” on your blogs all the time, you will then be easy to find under that search term in Google! But don’t over do it so that it becomes boring for the reader eh?!

In fact if you DO Google “Purple Wooden Spoons” you will notice that Faith computing (our mother company) actually comes up on the front page! How the… ?¿ (This has changed as of 2018 due to this article being years old and the Faith Computing website changing a lot).

Well, it is easy, you see – no one competes for the search term Purple Wooden Spoons, so as a result it happens quite easily! On the other hand, when you have a term that gets a lot of searches, you can be sure you will need an Traffic Generation expert to help you rank in that area.

Be sure that in your blogs you include lots of helpful links to other articles on your website and outside your website. Also ensure you use the META description and Tagging functions as well. These strategies will do your site the world of good!

And one more thing which is very important, if you don’t get someone who REALLY knows WordPress and SEO to set up your website, you will end up with a website that is offensive to the search engines . Be careful of that! Check out our pricing on Website Design!

Hi, I'm Scott Nailon. I built my first website using notepad on my buggy Osbourne Pentium 133 (Windows 98) computer back in 1998. I have been running my own business since 2006 with a specialty in web since 2008. Most of these blogs are my own, if they are written by someone else I will have attributed that person at the end of the article. Thanks for reading!
