I am sure everyone has heard by now that Wordpress blogs draw huge traffic compared to websites. And the truth is, they really do.
A client contacted me to do SEO work on her site and I suggested that she should scrap her current site and start over with a WP blog. She didn't want to hear this but it is what I recommended.The site was not a performer and the cost to optimize would have been substantial just for the onsite SEO work.
After a few months I convinced her to let me set up a blog for her and compare the traffic. (I did it for free to prove a point)
Guess what...my new blog on a new domain KICKED her site's butt. (And that was before she had me do SEO work on the blog!) Once I started doing SEO work, her traffic INCREASED 400% the first month!! Each month the traffic is growing as I continue to optimize the site.
A few reasons for a Wordpress blog:
- SEO Monster
- Ease of use - no more .ftp / .html software or paying $$$ for changes
- Easy to customize with adding and dragging widgets
- Plugins abound - there are so many to make your site robust for your reader and you
- SEO Monster....oops, already said that
- Use as a site / blog or stand alone blog
Do you have a Wordpress blog? If not - - - - why?
If so, what has been your success?
