Hurry! Everyone jump on the blog bandwagon. But what do you do once you’re on? How do you gain and maintain rank? This is often the moment of truth when it comes to the success or failure of a blog.
SEO by the Sea blogger Bill Slawski
“found that Google considers blogs to contain three content types:
â€¢ The content of recent posts,
â€¢ A blogroll, and;
â€¢ Blog metadata (author profile information and/or other information about the blog or its author).” source
Honestly, it all boils down to two things: you get what you give and yes, popularity matters. Consistent entries of noteworthy content will not only get your blog off the bench, but keep you in the game. If you’re a team player, those cheerleaders (blogrolls/taggers) will be your biggest fan.
Be careful. Your blog could get a foul if you don’t play by the rules. “New posting frequency, especially at set intervals, could be a tipoff of a low quality, i.e. spam, blog. Post content and size might raise alarms in Google’s algorithm, and push the blog to a lower ranking.” source
