So you have a website and maybe a few social spaces such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. That, is just the beginning! To benefit from the maximum power and exposure the internet provides businesses, the secret lies in frequent blogging.
Frogman Media Group receives numerous inquiries as to why frequent blogging is so important. So here is the quick crash course on why.
When you are inactive posting fresh content your website essentially goes dark. Sophisticated search engine algorithms automatically move you to the bottom of ranking lists – making you that much harder to find to a person searching for your services. You can essentially move to page 15, 20, 50 over time. Realistically, when was the last time you went through 50 pages to find a service you needed? Think of it as the squeaky wheel gets oiled first. If you keep speaking up via fresh content on your website, you are consistently prioritized/ranked as first.
TOP 3 BENEFITS OF UPDATING YOUR BLOG OFTEN
Whether your business is small or large, dedicating a page on your site that is updated frequently is the secret to a successful online content strategy. Here is what you gain critical to your business’ success:
- Increase traffic on your website. Posting regularly on your site will help increase your web traffic.

More traffic to your site, gives you more opportunity to generate new business. TIP: Make sure to post a link to all of your blog posts on your social media sites to get some extra exposure. Boosting these posts on Facebook will give you an added push.
- Increase Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Fresh content on your site will not only help you gain a strong online presence, it will help with your SEO strategy. Posting regularly and using some of the keywords that you want to rank for within your posts will help beat out your competitors on the search engine result pages.
