Blogging and Search Engine Traffic For Home Based Internet Marketing Businesses

By Tellman Knudson
So you know that blogging is an incredibly awesome way to get started with your home based internet marketing business. Blogs are easy to set up. Blogs get you traffic fast. That all sounds great. So, you're writing posts in your blog every day and you're, you know, doing all the right things. But, it's not always easy to get people to find your blog. How is it that? You know, people say blogs are great for search engines...but how do search engines actually come and find your posts?

Look, I'll be the first to tell you, I'm no technical genius when it comes to blogs...but I can tell you the basics. And, the basics work really well for us!

First, for people who aren't familiar with blogs, let's just clarify that a little bit. Blog is short for Web...as in internet...log file. Web log. Blog. But what a blog is really is...well, it is like an online diary. When you write in this journal, or blog, it is called making a post.

So back to how the search engines find your blog!

When you make a post, you are adding content to the internet. It can be written posts...audio...video, whatever. When you post that content you then have to get the word out...essentially you need to let the various search engines know that there's something they should go and take a look at.

So what you do after you post is something called pinging. What's pretty cool, if your blog is on WordPress...which is where we recommend you blog...they ping automatically for you, to a variety of different directories that ultimately connect to the search engines.

Pinging is like waving a big red flag so the search engines see you! It basically just says, "Hey, search engines, you know, here's some cool stuff you should be paying attention to."

There are blogging services out there besides WordPress, and not all of them will auto-ping...so you can ping your blog yourself. Pingoat and Ping-O-Matic are two great pinging services...they ping multiple sites all at once. Or you can go and ping sites manually...that seems like a lot of work to me, but it is an option.

Using Ping-O-Matic and Pingoat is really easy...and they are totally free. I mean, it's literally, you go to the site, type in your blog name, the URL and if you have a RSS URL you type that in as well. You then select the sites you want to ping, click "send pings" or something similar and you are off and running!

So what I'm suggesting you do for your home based internet marketing businesses is go get a blog, start blogging and every time you make a post be sure to ping. Wave that big red flag so the search engines see you and you will be amazed at how quickly you start to get traffic to your new blog!
