Cobweb-covered, Unknown, Unread, Unvisited Blogs

Blog marketing gives your business a voice.

If you are creative with that voice, you will also enjoy the undivided attention of a captive target audience (which, as you know, can lead to long term relationships and sales).

Using your voice to introduce and promote your products or services is a cost effective manner of advertising and building your business brand.  Blogging is one of the best, most widely-used, and simplest shoestring marketing platforms you can use to grow your business.

However, a cobweb-covered, unknown, unvisited blog is as good as NO blog at all.

Is your blog hiding in the shadows?  Gathering moss instead of gathering steam?  Looking more like a ghost town than a landmark destination?

Become a savvy entrepreneur and combine blog marketing with the principles of SEO and allow the power of the internet to work for you and your business.

SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimization”

I’m not an expert in SEO but, lucky for me, I have a super savvy online marketing friend who is! Instead of trying to fudge my way through explaining how SEO works and how it can benefit you, here’s a much better option – go here:

Kathy Griffiths has a wonderful, very helpful, and easy-to-grasp series of posts on her blog, Online Marketing And Promotion Basics, on every SEO topic you can think of!

When you land on Kathy’s blog, just click “SEO” in her list of categories in the column on the right.

  • Hi Melanie,

    Thank you for sharing Kathy Griffith’s SEO topic. Like you, I am not an expert and am always looking for great trainers in specific areas of expertise. I plan to take a look at Kathy’s post and wanted to stop by here to say hello to you.

    Hope all is well.


  • Happy New Year, Tristan!

    One thing is for sure … YOU are doing things right.

    Maybe you’re a bit like me and you don’t know everything about everything when it comes to SEO, but understanding the basics and implementing those principles will get you traffic.

    Wishing you and your blog a very wonderful and successful 2011. 🙂

  • Thanks for the post, Melanie!

    It’s so true that an undread blog is not doing anyone any good! Knowing your SEO basics (and not-so-basics, of course) is a simple and great way to get passive traffic to your blog.

  • You betcha, Martha! No one gets a rock solid core of readers overnight. We all start from square one. And entrepreneurs who are just starting out should make a beeline for your blog and get some help with how to navigate the crazy maze of online marketing — and that includes blogging!

    I agree — Kathy is the SEO Queen. 🙂

  • So true! An unread blog is as good as no blog. However, I do think it takes a little time to gather your readers and sometimes to even find your own voice. With SEO tips, traffic has an easier time of finding you! Yes, Kathy Griffiths is the SEO queen. She totally rocks the SEO world!
