Is your blog helping or hurting your business?

This is a set of technical configurations which include ensuring your site has a sitemap.xml file that is constantly updated, that your blog post category names show up in the post URLs, that the post titles show up in the post URLs, and many more technical details. While getting these details right does not ensure your site ranks well, getting them wrong helps ensure it doesn’t.

Make sure that your blogs posts are optimized

If you create a great blog that no one reads, you have to ask what is the point. In the same way that your site has to be SEO optimized, every blog post must be as well.

This includes things like SEO friendly titles, use of internal and external links, it being long enough (but not too long), and a host of other factors..

Write Good Stuff!!!
