Blogs-Top Four Reasons Why You Should Have One

Dec 24, 2007
Online web journals, also know as blogs, have changed the way information is presented on the Internet. You no longer have to rush home to catch the daily tidings on the news or pull out a newspaper and search for the content you're interested in.

Blogs not only give you instant access to the news, but you also get to read other people's opinions and advice on topics that interest you. Because you can interact with other blog readers, there's a community atmosphere surrounding blogs.

If you have a popular blog and people like what you have to say, then they will return again and again. You have then created a steady stream of readers and potential customers to your blog.

This is why blogging has become the craze over the past few years. Bloggers are getting recognized and acknowledge by television personalities, news outlets, and even talk radio hosts. They are being recognized not because they are simply bloggers, but because of the content that they post on their blogs.

Here are four top reasons why you should have a blog.

1. Blogs can be easily updated and thus have fresher content than a regular static website. The search engines exist because of content. If you can give the search engines daily fresh content, they will love you back in return and index your content in its search results.

The search engine robots return more often to a blog than to a regular website because it is updated more frequently. This in turn can get your blog ranked higher in the search engines and get you much more traffic.

2. Blogs help you build relationships and connect with your readers through your posts and thus you will earn their trust. People buy from those that they trust. There is no better way to build that trust than to have a way to interact with your readers.

3. Blogs gives you the opportunity to establish your credibility by sharing your knowledge and resources with the public. It not only boosts your credibility, but that of your business as well.

4. Lastly, blogs are little to no cost. You can go to Blogger.com and set up a blog for free in about five minutes.
