A Mom Blog Social Network
Blogging has taken off for both personal and business purposes. Like with websites and social media, blogs can benefit through the inclusion of links in the content. Linking not only helps people get to your site, but to get around it.
If you are writing about document translation, for example, links to other posts can help keep readers on the blog longer, not to mention make it easier to find on the search engines.
Innovative Ways to Link
Mentioning a keyword or site in the content, with a link, is the most basic method. It needs to be relevant to the topic, of course, as readers will get lost or suspicious of your intentions if it is not.
One way to add a link is to refer to a previous post, in hyperlink format, so you don’t overwhelm readers with too much information at once.
If you add posts to your blog often, you can recap information, particularly to update frequent readers in case they missed anything. This will increase the number of links, which can also be easily accomplished by adding an FAQ page. Answers to questions can be posted on pages the links lead to.
Site maps are sometimes used to make navigation easier for your human visitors and to guide search engines in what is most important on a site. These also create a source for links. You can link to the main blog page or other bloggers’ pages at the end of each piece, but it almost always pays to keep adding fresh content.
Using Social Media
Social media websites are not just about communicating and making friends. They provide an excellent means for creating links to your blog and in a number of different ways. You can simply ask someone to provide a link to their site or even your own; there’s no harm in sharing your writing, under most circumstances.
Other ways social media can benefit your blog is when readers update their status, with a link of course, to it. A method of referring to the site, with a “like” in the case of Facebook, provides a way to get to a particular page. You can also update a profile with a message announcing a new piece of writing. Similarly, you can post writing onto a blog which originally appeared on a social networking website.
Some sites have simple tools for creating links or do so automatically when you put in a website address. Others require a manual approach, which can mean something seemingly complex as legal translation if you have no experience. Aside from any technical hurdles, there are many creative ways to link to your blog, and that of other people, which can make it all that more appealing to different readers.
