How to start a blog: The setup
Setting up the site is the first thing to do. Companies need to avoid jumping straight into publishing content and taking time to understand technical details. Although they may not be exciting, these details are essential in optimizing your blog to search engines, driving traffic, and growing your audience.
Add the blog to Main Navigation.
The main navigation menu of your website is what visitors (and search engines!) use to navigate it. Use it to discover your content and decide if it is capable of helping them achieve the goals they have set for it. Even the best content can only be gained with intuitive navigation. If this happens, it will hurt your organic search traffic.
Takeaway: Make sure your blog is visible in your main navigation menu.
What if your landing page is optimized to convert users? Can users be directed in the wrong direction by adding your blog?
This is a valid question. However, the reality is that web visitors spend only 15 seconds on average on landing pages. According to research, 95% of visitors will not return to a landing page after their first visit. This is the perfect way to convert. It is a path that most people need to take.
