What is a blog?
Have you ever wondered what a blog is?
A blog is a website that someone writes posts in.. the blog could have a theme, for example if you love cooking, you might want to share recipes with your friends, family and connections or followers that you have made from the internet.
It's like an online archive.
You can have advertising for your business.
You can use a blog to write about personal stuff or business stuff or just an opinion you have on a certain subject.
You could even use a blog for your studies, because if you can teach it to someone else, it means you have actually learned something and understand it.
It's like a diary.
You can put up text, pictures and videos.
Some people use a blog platform, just to put photos up of what they have been doing.. for example.. you might be going on a holiday overseas somewhere and you could put your photos up on your blog to share with your friends and family.
I use a blog for my business.
How is a blog used for advertising your business?
You see the banners on the top, sides & bottom of this blog post? That is all advertising.
Whatever you write about in your posts.. is going to rank in the search engines.
Let's use Google as an example.
People google (search) for stuff online every second of every day.. whatever the subject may be.
Lets say they searched for a "banana cake recipe".
Google brings up all the content online for those keywords. And if you have written about a banana cake recipe on your blog, it's going to come up in the Google search somewhere.. whether it be on the 1st page or the 20th page.
I'm not going to go into how to get your content ranked on google just now... that can be for another day of blogging.
You can have links in your content linking to your business page or whatever it is you want the reader to see.
So basically, a blog is somewhere you can put your content.
Your readers can comment at the bottom of your blog post, leaving their thoughts, questions etc about your blog post.
