What’s The Point Of Blogging?

By | Blog, Content Marketing | No Comments

It’s a very good question isn’t it?!

I’m an SEO Copywriter by trade (or, at least, I was, before I became the MD of GrowTraffic…now I’m the MD who tries to do some SEO Copywriting when they let me!), and so writing blogs is one of the things I like to do bestest of all.

In fact, if you just left me to my own devices, I’d sit here and write blogs all day long.

“But why?” I hear you cry! What’s the point of all this blogging? What purpose are you serving the universe? Why do it to yourself?

Well my young Padawan, I shall tell you.

Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves: Women In SEO

By | Blog, Content Marketing, Thoughts | No Comments

Are you singing the song yet? If you’re not, you should be! Aretha should be blaring out in your ears as loud as possible. Go on, sing it loudly. Let that woman stare at you.

OK, that’s enough. Don’t get carried away.

Because, difficult as it is to believe, I’m not just writing this blog post as a tribute to the late, great Aretha Franklin. Although I probably should be; she deserves it.

But no, on this occasion, I’m writing about the fact that we, the GrowTraffic dream team, are a group of four women, fighting our corner in a very male dominated world. We’re independent women in SEO. And we love it.  Read More

What Are The Benefits of Blogging?

What Is A Blog?

This week’s blog is about guess what? Blogging!

Which kind of makes sense, seeing as I have been writing blogs for  Grow Traffic for a few weeks now, and I haven’t really understood the benefits, other than to indulge my love of writing for my favourite SEO company, and get paid for the privilege! Win win I say! 

But before we look at the benefits of blogging, who will read your blog, and how to begin if you’ve never ventured in to blogging before but want to get started, we need to look at what actually is a blogRead More

Why Do I Need Words And Pictures On My Website?

By | Content Marketing, Inbound Marketing, Search Engines, Social Media Marketing | One Comment

As anyone who knows me will tell you, I’m a Words Person. Not a Numbers Person – as my son is keen on reminding me – and rarely even a Pictures Person – if you’re going to stick me in an art gallery, you’re going to have to explain to me what I’m looking at. But give me words – anyone’s words; Shakespeare’s, Duffy’s, Attwood’s, hell, even Val McDermid’s – and I’m in heaven.  Read More

Who’s Actually Reading Your Blog?

By | Inbound Marketing, Internet Marketing Recruitment, Thoughts | No Comments

I have both written and read many blogs in my time about how you should tailor your blog posts to your ideal customer, the idea being that you research thoroughly who your core customer base is and then envisage a single customer who embodies all the characteristics of that customer base. Kind of like what the politicians do – talk to ‘Middle England’.  Read More

What Are You Blogging On About? I: ‘The Blogging Bogs’ Part 5

By | Content Marketing, Inbound Marketing, Internet Marketing Recruitment, Search Engines, Social Media Marketing | No Comments

We’re at Part 5 of The Blogging Blogs already: I can’t believe it! It only feels as if we’ve been talking about blogs for 3 years. I do hope some of you reading this are finding these guides useful but, if you’re not, I’d like to stay deluded if you don’t mind, so let’s pretend they’re fabulous!.

Anyway, enough of this silliness; here we go again…

Blogging Vs Social Media – ‘The Blogging Blogs’ Part 3

By | Google, Inbound Marketing, Internet Marketing Recruitment, Search Engines, SEO, Social Media Marketing, Thoughts | No Comments

Well here we are again lovely people and it’s Part 3 of GrowTraffic’s The Blogging Blogs; so without further ado let’s get on with it…

 

Blogging and Social Media

Love it or hate it, social media is now an unavoidable part of SEO; if you’ve got a website then you have just got to bite the bullet and get social networking in order to promote it. Now we all know that this is a burden most small to medium business owners can probably do without but there are ways and means of easing the burden (most of which I have already discussed in previous blogs).

One such tool that can be used hand in hand with social media to promote your website is the humble blog, although a lot of people make the mistake of thinking that they can only manage one or the other, not both. Here we’re going to have a look at how you can market more efficiently, so that your blog incorporates your social media and works harder for your SEO.  Read More

Guest Blogging

Organic Growth through Guest Blogging

Thanks to all the recent changes that have been implemented by search engines in the past year, the most sure fire way of achieving a successful, high ranking website is to make the content on your website the best it can possibly be.

Great content leads to organic growth, but getting great content on to your website can often be easier said than done and, even if you already have a blog on your website written in-house, ideas can quickly dry up and the blog’s reach can dwindle.

If done correctly, guest blogging can be an ideal way of forging mutually beneficial relationships between websites and businesses, not to mention giving your blog a boost, but it must be done correctly and requires an experienced guest author.

 

Expert Guest Bloggers

As experienced copywriters with a abundance of knowledge about SEO and digital marketing, both Simon Dalley and Rachel Weinhold are the perfect choice to fill some of your guest blogging slots.

Here at GrowTraffic, not only do we know how to craft the perfect blog post to help maximise your website’s potential, but we also know how to guest blog ethically so that you don’t end up getting penalised. And, as we’re always keeping our beady eye on the latest developments in search engine land, we know just what subjects to enthuse about to too.
