I expect the majority of people understand what a blog is. But, just in case for some rookie readers, I'll try to describe what it is. A blog site is a website that contains articles after articles are written one after the other. So the content is not being composed all in one increase front. But it is instead being updated along the way.
A blog site chronologically lists the articles, being the most current. A script or a system typically supports a blog. We concluded it's better to own a blog since it's easier to get traffic with it.
Why? There are remarkable mechanics of a blog and likewise the culture of blogging that makes it a lot easier.
For something-- it's much easier to get incoming links. Let me inform you how.
Factor # 1: Blog Ping
With a blog ping, whenever you compose a new short article on your blog site, you can set addresses to a couple of ping sites to inform them that you simply updated your blog site. When you do that, you'll receive a link back to your site.
Now, perhaps you will not be listed very long on that page because many other blogs are likewise pinging to those sites. However, more or less, it'll help. I've gone through my web data, and traffic does originate from the websites that I pinged.
Factor # 2: Faster SE Indexing
When it comes to gaining traffic, you may not recognize this, but it's easier to get indexed in search engines with a blog site. I do not understand why-- possibly it's since inbound links are more natural, and you don't really go around asking for them.
I have experienced where new content on my blog site was indexed in under seven days.
Reason # 3: Trackback
There's likewise TRACKBACK. Now, I was with a pal discussing how trackbacks worked last week. Now I'll tell you. With blogs, for each post that you compose, there will be a unique URL for it. And for each post, there's likewise a distinct trackback URL. So whenever you are at another individual's blog site, look for a trackback URL, and you might want to copy it.
Let say you are at someone else's blog site. You write your own material at your blog site and lower down the interface, you get in the other person's trackback URL, and then you hit the Submit button.
Now, that brand-new short article will appear on your blog. And that comment links straight back to your post.
Reason # 4: Bloggers' Linking Habit
OK, here's some more. This is more a blogging culture thing-- blog writers like to connect to each other. If your blog is intriguing, it's simple to get other bloggers to connect back to you. Whether you request for it on your website, or in some cases, they just simply offer you a link back. I've got this frequently, and most of the time, they link back to writing to a specific message. And sometimes, they simply list blog site websites that they like on their site.
Factor # 5: Repeat Visitors
Now, after you get organic traffic from search engines, ping websites, and other blogs, later you'll start to understand that 80-90% of your visitors are repeat visitors. It's common with a blog. The point is with this one-- it's easier to retain visitors with a blog site.
You get substantial traffic from several sources-- and the ones you currently have, you get to keep. This is various from content sites, where you really so much on online search engine traffic.
Reason # 6: Blog Comments
Now, my third point on why the blog is better than content-site-- Blog Comments. Here's the thing, simply make sure that your remarks are genuine, due to the fact that nowadays, there are too many individuals spamming blog site remarks just to get a link back.
Blogging Seems Much More Fun
In my experience, starting from the beginning, in six months, a content website might not mark 1000 visitors per day. However, it's not unusual with a blog if a blog site reaches 3000 visitors per day if you offer great material.
I expect it all boils down to which you are comfy with.
Understanding this, I might be planning differently in the future-- but I am not sure about that. From the looks of it, blogging seems far more fun. You blog about what you like and your network with other bloggers. And the writing content part becomes much, much easier with scripts like WordPress and Movable Type. Not much developing, no submitting files, less link building, etc.
With creating content sites, you still need to build the site once again, upload them up to your web hosting, build inbound links, etc.
This is my viewpoint. And you may not believe the very same method I do, based upon your individual experience and knowledge. I respect that.
