When you see a great graphic on the Internet that illustrates some idea well, file it away and pull it out when you’re sitting down to write a blog post.
Images themselves are not searchable per se, so it’s important you describe them well in your blog post. A good image can sometimes require 500 words for a good description.
Current Experiences, Challenges, and Successes are Great
Things that are happening in your business make great blog post topics, especially when you can write how a customer of yours benefits from the use of your products or services.
Reuse Old Ideas and Old Blog Posts
People are sometimes reluctant to write a second post on a topic they’ve already covered for fear it will seem repetitive. That belief does not acknowledge the fact that when people arrive at your website via organic search, they are not reading your website sequentially.
If you’ve published an article on a topic previously, and you now have a slightly different slant on the topic or you’ve learned something new, rather than go back and rewrite the prior post, write a new one.
The search engine will bring the visitors to whichever post most closely matches their search query.
