Blogging is Key to Social Media Success

Blogs are a big staple right now when one looks to define Social Media. Sure you have Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Friendfeed, etc., but without a blog, you have no home base.

Before starting a blog, you have to decide, what will you blog about. It makes no sense to be a hose and tube fitting company and blog about air conditioners (an unlikely scenario, but you get the point).

Next, you have to make sure the person you appoint as the blog’s administrator knows what they are doing. They have to have a sense of web design, copywriting skills (blog typos happen, but an excessive amount can ruin a company’s credibility), and be web savvy.

Bookmarking is another key element of blogging. Posting to your blog is great, but do others know those posts are there? Search engines can crawl all they want, but the golden rule to SEO is, the more links your blog has on the internet, the better your chances are of appearing on the first page of Google’s responses (Tip: trade links with other RELEVANT bloggers).

Tracking and analyzing your traffic is CRUCIAL to blogging success. Know what information drvies traffic to your site. Stay on top of that information with Google Reader, Google Alerts, and RSS feeds. Doing so enhances your credibility and your readership because people will see that you are in the know about what it is you blog about.

I know Twitter is burning up with trending topics and wall posts are at an all time high on Facebook. One thing you can’t afford to do is, neglect your blog.

  1. If anyone knows anything about content for the web, it must be unique,
    informative, and compelling. Send tweets with tips and suggestions that are related to your business.

    Attendance increased each month and public awareness grew
    as people shared the Facebook invitation with their network.

  2. Hi there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok. I’m
    undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.

    Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!

  4. Try to use very light cleaning products, use of any harsh product may cause adverse effect on the fiber or texture.
    A spray bottle filled with water and several drops of citrus essential oil can be used as an
    air freshener and as a finishing touch after spot-cleaning the carpet.
    Feng Shui means ‘wind-water’ and it is believed that the power of Heaven
    ans Earth is used to attract positive qi.
