Most bloggers think of blogging tips. Some of the bloggers create excellent content. However if no one reads your well written content is it worth spending your valuable time on creating new and fresh content daily? You have to decide it.

Why you should not ignore SEO?
SEO is search engine optimization. You will get organic traffic from major search engines such as Google, Bing etc. Without such traffic you will not have a growing blog or a web based business. If you sell products online then organic traffic plays an important part same as paid traffic. Therefore you can’t ignore the importance of SEO. Some online businesses spend more money to their SEO company simply because they know the importance of search engine optimization for their business growth.
How to use SEO for your blog?
SEO is not dead. However some of the SEO techniques that were used in few years ago are already outdated. If you follow such old strategies then you will not see any results.
Diversify your SEO strategies that can improve your rank in search engines. Do not only build backlinks. Social signals, community and brand authority are still in trend when it comes to the SEO.
Be sure to stay updated with latest algorithm updates and SEO strategies. SEO is not dead. But it requires lot of hard work to rank your site in major search engines.
