5 Reasons Why WordPress Blogs Are So Great

When I first wrote my original “Why I Hate Blogs” for article submission I was pretty sure that the humor would get some hits but in my wildest dreams I never thought that out of the 26 articles I did write that it would be second in the amount of the hits it did get. Actually it was dark humor because I honestly do hate spending the time blogging away or let us be more specific – I honestly DID hate spending that time.

Keyword-rich, that is. Blogs are a great way to generate keyword-rich content, especially if you update your blogs each day. In fact, for some smaller businesses, blogs make more sense than hard-to-create web pages.

Last year Google introduced the “nofollow” attribute for links. Using this attribute on a link is supposed to inoculate the linking site from any negative association to the site being linked to. It’s to be used when you are not in control of the link being posted (as in blog comments) or when you don’t want your link to a site to be considered as you “vouching” for that site in the eyes of the search engines. I think the most accurate description of the “nofollow” attribute is that it’s a link condom.

The next step is to select the blogs name that is relevant to your particular niche. The most important thing in your blog is the content. First and foremost, you have to ensure that your content is original and informative. This is very crucial for your blogs to make cash. Ensure that you provide content that will keep the reader interested.

Creative bloggers that know how to manage their time can successful manage multiple blogs and keep them all running successfully. If a blogger cannot keep up with all their blogs, they may have to make a decision to bring in help or get rid of one blog.
