It’s Aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive!

18 Feb

wickedcopy-copywriterWhew – hi everybody. Sorry I’ve been AWOL for so long!

The bad news: I haven’t updated my blog in foreeeever!

The good news: I’ve been too busy to update my blog, thanks to… well, thanks to my blog. 🙂

This simple website of mine is proof positive that a blog gets you the exposure you need to grow your business. I’ve been so busy with the new clients my site has generated over the past year that I haven’t needed to update my site – and so I haven’t bothered.

Now, I do think that growing my traffic and my online presence is a good thing, obviously, or I wouldn’t be writing you now. Aside from being search engine fodder, blog posts are important because they tell your potential customers that you are still in the picture. In other words, not having a new post up since the summer when it is now February is a bad thing <blush!>.

However, my website has gotten enough Google traction that it’s still getting page views and it’s still generating leads for me from my contact form. How? In a word (or an acronym):

SEO.

Yes, blogs are important to tell Google you’ve got regular content going up all the time, but SEO is still important, albeit different from days of yore. You need to have the right SEO in the right places. It helps to have your whole site’s framework set up correctly, but then within each post there are things you can do, as well.

If you need help with your blog, let me know. This one is kicking ass for me and I would love to make yours do the same for you. I am available for consults as well as actually writing your posts.

Happy 2013 everyone – sorry for the belated wishes! 🙂
