Writing Good Blogs

Why Blog?

The first thing you need to know about writing blogs is why you’re doing it, and most of the time it’s not because you have something to tell to the world! So why are millions of blogs published every day?

  1. Web sites that publish blogs frequently are considered “fresh” by Google and so those sites get ranked higher
  2. The people writing the blogs are including outbound links to other web sites on purpose as part of a backlinking campaign that promotes the destination web site

There are a few essential things you need to keep in mind about blogging

  • the blog should be at least 250 words long
  • it should make sense
  • it should contain the the correct number of repetitions of keyword phrase of the destination page that you are backlinking to
  • it should not be written by someone in a sweat shop in India. Their English is different than ours and they are often not qualified properly
  • there should be at most two backlinks in the body of the blog
  • take the time to fill out as much information in the “About the author” fields

Here’s an example of a well written blog posted on ArticleSnatch

Example Of Well Constructed Blog

A clever way to make use of your blog is to allow it to be used in other people’s articles, blogs etc., as long as they leave your backlinks in place. So each time that copy of your blog is used on another web site, the backlink in the blog is originating from another web site, say a  web site makeover site. that is how you can generate many backlinks from one blog or article.

By the way, THIS blog you are reading has:

  • 300 words
  • 2 backlinks
  • the word blog occurs 2.62% of the time (good)
  • was useful
  • written in American english
