When I began writing a blog my goal was WordPress Blogging for SEO.   Using the blog for a couple reasons.  One to share how media works by sharing what we have done for others.  Second, to help with my Search Engine Optimization (SEO).  Blogging is about content.  I noticed when using my WordPress SEO by Yost, one of the analysis items was to write a 300 word blog.  If not this is what I would get: “There are 65 words contained in the body copy. This is far too low and should be increased.”

I then went out to find out why.  Came across a blog from Risdall, “Ideal content length is a reoccurring debate in the online marketing community, but it turns out that Google does not have a minimum word count for indexing.  A 299-word blog post can do as well as a 301-word post. Even 150 words suffice in some cases.”  You see it is all about content and how you use it.”

According to Google, ““One of the most important steps in improving your site’s ranking in Google search results is to ensure that it contains plenty of rich information that includes relevant keywords, used appropriately, that indicate the subject matter of your content.”

WordPress Blogging for SEO should be part of your ‘do it yourself’ marketing plan. The more you blog, the more new content helps your site.  How often should you blog?  From my research I found arguments of daily or multiple times a day, to a few times a week.  Successful bloggers are doing it both way.

Regular posting on your blog puts you and your brand in front of people.  Infrequent posting can lead to readers feeling disconnected, and to even forget who you are completely.  Look at what will help your customers and then provide them the information they need.  Misconceptions for blogging.
