This is the Scoop on Business Blogging — Check Out these Numbers

Businesses that blog have 55% more website visitors than companies that don’t blog.

Companies that blog consistently and frequently have 6.9 times more search traffic than businesses that don’t blog.

I’ve included links above, if you want to see the numbers and the graphs from Hubspot.com. Hubspot.com is an internet marketing training and software company and they did the research on their blogging vs. non-blogging clients. Since the businesses in the survey are Hubspot.com clients,  you can assume most or all of these websites have good use of keywords and calls to action. These websites are better than your run-of-the-mill vanity site.

I’ve been recommending my clients blog weekly or  twice weekly. The reason being adding content to your website frequently and consistently increases your visibility with Google. As time goes by it also adds link backs or links to your site.

However, after reading these studies I’m more likely to recommend daily blogging. If you are running an online business, you’ll want to make time for daily blogging. If your company has a team or group, you might consider asking each team member to write a weekly blog post and assign them a day to upload it. A reasonable goal would be get to 100-200 posts rapidly while maintaining quality.

  1. Hi there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done a marvellous job!

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say you’ve done a awesome job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari. Outstanding Blog!

  3. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
