You may have started blogging because everyone else is doing it and you do not want to be left behind. However, do you really understand what it is? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Let me shed some light on blogging and how optimization can help you maximize its benefits for you!
Blog is simply a shorter term for “web log”, which is actually what it is – a log of information and other relevant things that you publish online. It is a tool that is used to share to the world what you think or believe in. Blogs are welcomed by readers since it is presented in a less formal and reader-friendly layout. It’s more entertaining to read compared to the usual article. If you will be able to inject valuable information into your blog that your target audience is looking for, then you have gained a new follower.
Now, how can you create blog content that are valuable to your target market? How will you get that noticed by Google so that when a relevant search is made, your blog will have a bigger chance to see the light of day? That’s when optimization comes in. You can write a million blogs but if you do not optimize properly, your time and effort will go to waste.
