WordPress and Your Hosting Setup
I’m on holiday this week (or vacation as you say in Americaland) so here is a guest post from Jonas Bates . He works for webhostgear.com, a well-respected web hosting guide.
Blogging and WordPress Hosting
Does your business have a blog? If not, it may be the only one left that doesn’t. Blogging is a key part of any Internet marketing strategy, and many companies are benefitting tremendously from a combination of blogging and WordPress hosting that keeps fresh content associated with your business and directs traffic back to your primary website.
How to Make Blogging and WordPress Hosting Work for Your Business
The Internet is all about fresh content. As the saying goes “content is king.” To get people to your website, you need something new. To bring them back, you need to keep people talking. A blog can serve both of these purposes. Even if your main site needs to stay static by necessity (because you have a lot of offers, for example), your blog can always be changing, and can be a great source of link building too. Don’t shortchange the power of the blog.
But What About the WordPress Hosting? Where Does That Come In?
WordPress hosting is simply the easiest and most effective platform for blogging. A WordPress blog with a WordPress host is easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to optimize. You can have a WordPress blog hosted on a non-WordPress server, but why would you? WordPress hosts
are already set up with the right operating system, the right programming language, the right everything for a functional, efficient, eye-catching WordPress blog. There are already plenty of great WordPress features to choose from, and since WordPress is an open source application,
new ones are popping up all the time. WordPress is compatible with any web hosting.
Benefitting from Blogging and WordPress Hosting
Once you have your WordPress blog set up with your WordPress host, use it! Don’t let all that functionality go to waste. Make sure you’re posting every day, or at least a few times a week. If necessary, get some of your employees to contribute. As soon as people realize you’re not updating that blog regularly, they’ll stop coming back, and that can cost you big. So set it up and start blogging!
