Lately I’ve been rather busy with appointments, proposals and client work. So I’ve had a difficult time finding time to post to this blog regularly. Which is a good thing actually. However, I was really starting to see some momentum here, and it’s kind of a bummer to watch both Google traffic and return visitors drop off so quickly.
I have found you need to post to your blog at least once a week to gain some momentum in the right direction, and twice a week is almost twice as good. For some blogs posting daily works, but I don’t particularly like to subscribe to blogs that post daily because I like reading from several different sources throughout the week, and only like to read one 3rd-party blog post daily.
When one blog takes up my entire RSS feed reader inbox I end up deleting them. But that is just my preference. With that in mind however, I don’t want to want to post to this blog more than I’d want to read it.
The bottom line: If you are trying to grow a blog quickly, then I recommend you post to it a minimum of twice a week. This helps feed the googlebot and keeping it coming back for more, as well and delivering frequently updated content to your readers. I.E., more search traffic and more return visitors.
