Back in the day, the first websites on the internet had the simple role of the online presentation for a company or an individual. Over time communities have developed around different websites and blogging became a thing.
After that, the “Web 2.0” term was coined as the websites no longer hosted only their content but also the content of their visitors (Wikipedia, YouTube, Social Networking …).
Now we have so much content from independent bloggers that you may think your own blog with your company or personal website may not be a good idea. That may not be true.
While there is a high number of websites that do not blog about their activities, you certainly should. Alongside your WordPress website, a blog is an additional way to bring more opportunity and more business to your website.
The interested parties who visit your website and your blog can be enticed to subscribe to your content thus leaving their contact details, effectively producing leads.
Making further analysis into your blog visitors you will get better insight into their needs and wants. Blog readers can react to your blog posts with comments that can transform into brand enthusiasts, which can drive additional business.
It is a fact that the search engines now “read” through your website content, and they know exactly what is your business or industry niche. A well-made blog will increase the quality of your SEO as search engines will have additional content to crawl and index, and increase your search ranking.
