Why create a blog?
The blog has many advantages and brings rich benefits to those who employ it correctly.
Whether creating a blog or integrating a blog into your sites your activities, here are just some of the reasons you should consider becoming a webmaster-blogger.
Better Search Engine Optimization
As you blog, you will write and create articles that will be displayed from the most recently added to the oldest content. Each time you add a new article, you increase the content and the richness of your website. And that is a key aspect of being found and ranked well on search engines.
The content you create is used to position your website in search engines on the web. Unlike static "news" pages (you can update your feed regularly by adding and deleting content), blog entries are never removed from your site without your say so. The more you blog, the more your site's content changes, and this change is essential to your website's search engine optimization (SEO).
As we explain in our SEO guide, search engines love updated sites. Over the years, you will multiply the articles and therefore the gateways to your site through search engines. When writing articles on your blog, consider making links to pages on your website (for instance on your store or your main landing page).
