Is blogging still valuable to your business in 2024?



Having a blog page for your business should be an integral part of your marketing and content strategy. 


Like a supplement in a newspaper, a blog page on a business website gives added value to a website visitor, helps to build brand awareness and is great for SEO and social media purposes. The page is a section on a website where businesses can publish their content to show thought leadership and expertise. 





What happens when you publish a blog article on your website?


Search engines such as Google reward websites that publish fresh content. When you publish a blog article on your website, search engines send their crawlers to index the new content. If you don’t keep reminding search engines that your business website is still there they will regard your website as not active.



Search engines prioritise active websites with quality, fresh content.


Create good quality, valuable content for your blog articles on your business website and you will be rewarded. 




Is blogging still valuable to your business in 2024? The simple answer is yes!
