Setting Up a Blog Schedule

September 03, 2020

In today’s technological world where anyone can whip up a blog in an hour and misinformation travels through social media like wildfire, creating a credible and reliable site for your consumers is more important than ever. Blogging has transformed from a niche hobby to an essential marketing strategy that companies successfully use to engage current consumers and draw in new traffic. However, simply creating a blog is not enough. Developing an effective and beneficial blog requires constant management, SEO tactics, new content, and adaptations to current trends.

Key steps to increase blog credibility

With so much bad information only a click away, more and more consumers are searching for sites that have been proven to be trustworthy and credible. Consumers want to know that a blog is offering dependable content with fresh ideas regularly (that are, of course, entertaining and appealing to read). Here are key steps to focus on to build credibility and reach more viewers.  

Post regularly

Blogging regularly is a must if you want to stay in your industry’s top contenders. Consumers constantly crave new content, and generating professional, helpful blog posts on a regularly maintained schedule is one of the easiest ways to develop a trusting relationship with them. The more reliable content a blog produces, the faster it will build an audience — a crucial step for many businesses trying to get off the ground. Many consumers have a sharp eye for a live site, and it is usually obvious when a site has not been updated recently, which can bring reliability into question. Posting regularly also helps build a site’s E-A-T, or Expertise, Authority, and Trust, which is a tool Google uses to identify and promote proven trustworthy blogs.

Use hyperlinks and backlinks

Hyperlinks create a hidden web of connectivity within the blogging world. By hyperlinking information in one post to another creator’s content, you are building connections with that creator. Hyperlinking can also develop your site’s credibility, so long as you are using reliable sources. On the other hand, backlinks are also beneficial in connecting other sites to your own, and they can help your site perform better in search engine results.

Include keywords

In brief, search engine optimization is a practice that broadens a site’s audience by bringing new consumers to it naturally through a search engine. When a consumer types certain keywords into Google, the top results contain those words. This is why incorporating keywords into each post is crucial. Your post, and therefore your website, is more likely to be discovered if it includes occasional keywords that might get entered into a search engine. Using them in the content, taglines, and tags of a post will make it easier for consumers to find.
