A web blog is a great way to let your audience know what you are up to, the latest news surrounding your business services and to als get them involved in events or competitions you are currently running. Google loves fresh content and a blog is one of the best ways to keep your website up to date and fresh. Visitors tend to get bored with the same content so a blog is a great idea.
Some examples of great web blogs are:
- Adobe Blogs is a good example of keeping up to date with fresh content. Although the blogs are all mashed together to create one huge blog it is still a great blog. The idea of having multiple blogs all feed into one major blog is something to keep in mind when deciding how you want your blog to work.
- EpicWebs has a great layout and the content of the pages is thin, making the content easy to digest, it is also regularly updated.
- Matt Cutts blog is a good blog, mainly for the ideas of what to post and when to post them. Although the blog can sometimes get a little out of date (something not to do with your own blog), it is a great example of what to cover on your own blog. There is the challenges Matt does on a regular basis which are great to read.
Using WordPress For Your Blog
The easiest way to edit your blog is using a content management system. We recommend using WordPress, it is light weight and very easy to navigate and edit your content. WordPress also has built in posts and categories, allowing you to cleanly separate your blog content. Using categories also gives you the option of not showing some content which could be irrelevant to your blog and more relevant in another section of your site. To take advantage of this segregation of content you might need help from a developer or use a solid theme.
