Five Things That Can Maximize Your Blog Exposure

Five quick points to remember to help maximize your blog exposure online:

  1. Keep each post to one topic – it helps the search engines categorize the post. If you have more than one thing to talk about make a second entry.

  2. Make your post about 250 words. Less and the search engines can’t really figure out what is going on, there are not enough keywords. More and you will probably loose your reader. Think small but substantial bites. Can’t make it to 250 words. Then bench the idea and come back to it later when you have more subject matter.

  3. Spend about one third of your time on posting well formatted and thought out posts and spend the other two thirds researching other blogs in your space and use their comments to interact with other bloggers, linking back to your own blog – it helps greatly with link building.

  4. Post regularly and consistently, keep the crawlers coming back to see what is updated.

  5. Use categories for different topics. If one topic becomes too big, maybe look into creating another blog specifically for that category. Three months since the last post in one category? Then maybe look at how you can incorporate that category into another and get rid of it, visitors won’t be too impressed if the last post was 4 months ago.



Thanks to industry guru Dave Taylor for these great ideas, just some of the things I learned in his recent Denver seminar on The Case for Business Blogging.
