Welcome to our series of posts on Blogging Best Practices! Each Thursday for 10 weeks, we'll debut a new post designed to help you create great content, share it with the world, and become a better blogger. Check out other posts in the series here!
The most important tip for getting traffic to your site is add new content regularly and often. Every time you publish a new post to your blog you remind Google and other search engines about your site.
Here are a few tips for posting:
- Post On The Go: From your mobile device of choice, you can publish anytime, from anywhere. Use the Blogsy app on the iPad. Post via email or text message using the secret email address. From your iPhone or iPod Touch, use the Typepad app. You can also sign in to typepad.com from your mobile browser.
- Schedule Posts To Publish In The Future: The Publish On status allows you to designate a future date and time for your posts to publish. Scheduling posts is not just for when you go on vacation. If you have multiple ideas for a post, spread out the ideas across several posts. Publish one post now and set the others to publish over the next few days.
- Reblog From Your Favorite Sites: Browse your favorite sites for inspiration and use the Blog It bookmarklet to start your post adding your own commentary.
Check back next week for the next post in our series on Blogging Best Practices! If you have your own suggestion, let us know in the comments or the forum.
