If you did not already know, a blog (short for ‘weblog’) is a type of website, kind of like an online journal, where a non-technical person can publish blog posts to the web frequently, quickly, and easily. Also, readers can leave comments on each blog and participate in ongoing discussions.
Blogs have become popular because they can quickly gain a wide readership and are usually maintained by an individual, or a business where they can regularly add blog posts including helpful tips, articles, commentary, event descriptions, or other material such as graphics or video, etc. On average there are 37,500 blogs created every hour and over 900k blogs created in a 24 hour period.
At Harnessing Strengths, we don’t believe in doing anything half way. It is important to note that it’s always the little details that make your blog successful. And unfortunately, if you just setup a basic blog with WordPress, BlogSpot, Typepad, Nucleus, etc, there are some very important features that will be missing that will make the difference between gaining tons of traffic and having no traffic at all.
Here are a few of the blog development services we provide:
Blog Installation Services
At Harnessing Strengths, our blog installation services focus on the important details. We not only install your blog software on your own domain, but we also install all the must- have blog plugins for SEO, social media integration, security and backup services, just to name a view. Learn more about our Blog Installation Services.
SEO Blog Development
One of the reasons blogs are so successful is because the software has one of the best Search Engine Optimization (SEO) platforms. But, they are not perfect. There are a handful of very important plugins that make all the difference in the world when it comes to effective SEO. Contact us today and let us help take your blog to the next level with an SEO strategy.
Social Media Integration
Social Media has become one of the fastest ways to increase traffic. Some blogs get over 20% to 30% of their traffic from social media sites. And managing all the social media accounts can be time-consuming. But there is no reason why you can’t make your blog work for you while also taking care of your social media. At Harnessing Strengths, we will setup your blog to automatically update your Facebook, Twitter and any other social media accounts you would like to include.
The biggest growing problem on the web is website security. Hackers are becoming more and more of a threat. If you just have a basic installation of your blogging software, it is only a matter of time before you get hacked. At Harnessing Strengths, we specialize in both blog security and WordPress security. So whether your site has already been hacked, or you just want to take preventive measures, contact Harnessing Strengths today to increase your blog security and protect your website and blog from being hacked.
Blog Backup Service
The most important thing you can do for your website is back up it. But who has the time to back up your blog or website every day? At Harnessing Strengths, if we host your blog or website, we provide free backup service for your theme, plugins, uploads, and database every day, weekly or monthly on a secure off-site backup network. If you or your company has their own web hosting and don’t have an off-site backup service, Harnessing Strengths has the blog backup service for you. Our blog backup service will automatically back up your theme, uploads, plugins, and database every day, every week, or every month. And we will restore your blog if you have any problems with the backup.
The biggest growing industry on the web is blogging. The money-making potential is tremendous – if you are able to grow your website traffic and sell online advertising. However, it important to note that there is more strategy to making money online than just putting ads on your site. There are many different income sources depending on your industry. At Harnessing Strengths, we go over each income method that will work best for you, your company, and your audience and put together a full blog strategy that will work for you. Contact Harnessing Strengths today and let us help you with taking your blog monetization to the next level.
