The Importance of Blogging (for SEO)

This is my first attempt at a blog!

The thought to do one never occured to me before, after all – I’m a web designer, not a writer. But the more I learnt about SEO and getting your website to the top of Google search results, the more I discovered how important a blog was. For example…

1. FRESH CONTENT

Google loves freshness! Before I started this blog, my website didn’t change much very often, and so, like a piece of discarded bread, it went stale, and as a result began to drop in the google rankings. Keeping your site up to date with new blog posts, keeps your site fresh as a daisy, and smelling as sweet as a new born baby!

2. KEYWORDS

Although the days of Keywords being King are long gone (search engines don‘t depend on them as much as they once did.), Your site must still be relevent. Google no longer looks how many times a keyword appears on your site, but it looks at how it fits in with the rest of your site, and forms it’s own conculsions as to what your site is about. So the practice of stuffing as many keywords into your site as possible (such as SEO, WEB DESIGN, WEB DEVELOPMENT, GREAT RATES,), ahem… are long gone.

3. CLICKS

The more people click on your site, the more your site will move up in the rankings, so I intend to fill my blog with articles people are going to actually want to read, like “How to improve your love life”, “The Number one REAL method to get rich quick”, and “1o Celebrities who look like squirrells.” The aim here is to get people clicking on links to your site… It doesn’t all have to be about web design!

4. IMAGES

Having a lot of new, fresh images on your site is another way for Google to find you. Google looks for the name of the image, and the Alt text, so I will be sure to put lots of Web-design-relevant photos on my blog!

So there you have it, just a few of the many reasons why having a blog is essential to getting your site noticed by Google. So you can look forward to many more articles in the near future, but please excuse my bad spelling and terrible grammar. After all, I’m a web designer, not a writer!

I am so happy to have found Jon at Cayenne Pepper Design. He has created a fantastic website for our business and completed a great deal of work in a short period of time. He delivered the project above and beyond my expectations. We now have ideal website built the way we want with all the content and product range that we were looking to get online. I have had a few websites in the past from previous business ventures and this has been my best experience by far in terms of service. Jon is patient and works with you to create the product that you have in mind and advises with expert suggestions along the way. Thank you Jon! I would be happy to recommend you to friends and colleagues.

Jon recently built a website for my electrical business that I am extremely happy with. Jon has a great work ethic, a fantastic attitude, and above all he's a really decent guy to deal with. Even after running into problems with GoDaddys hosting package (which is completely useless btw), he kept his cool and worked through all the issues in a measured and professional manner. I cannot recommend Jon and Cayenne Pepper Web Design highly enough and if I'm ever in need of another website, he will definitely be my first call!
