It’s every blogger’s dream to become an overnight sensation. To have thousands or millions of readers typing in the URL of their website checking each and every day to see if there’s a new post, and reading every word as if it’s pure inspiration when there is one. With skyrocketing traffic, the blogger dreams of rolling around in a vault full of cash pouring in from advertisers lining up to pay top dollar for real estate on their blog. Unfortunately that seldom happens.
Bloggers put in countless hours doing what they think are all the right things to make their blog successful. They post quality content several times a week, respond to all their comments, and interact with other bloggers only to watch their traffic increase at a snail’s pace. What they lack is the attention of the heavy weight search engines.
To gain that attention, you need to use a technique called Search Engine Optimization, or SEO for short. By using the right terms, in the right way on a blog, the chances increase that someone plugging those same terms into the Google or Yahoo search engine will see your blog pop up in the results list.
If it sounds confusing or difficult, you’re right. SEO is both science and an art form that takes time and effort to master. Most bloggers also have a full time job, and are already stretched too thin to add another thing to think about. Some bloggers take the time to embrace SEO, some simply ignore it, others hire a search engine optimization agency.
An SEO Agency will help you make slight changes to your content to make it more visible to search engines, which will then increase a blog’s traffic. Higher traffic makes a blog more attractive to advertisers, which puts money in your pocket.
Using such an agency can give you one less thing to worry about, while still making progress towards achieving all your blogging goals. As your traffic and income increases, using such an agency would pay for itself.
What do you think, are you a blogger, and do you think an SEO agency for you?
