Initially, blogging was a channel people used to record their personal experience, ideas, views, stories and other personal writings.

Chill and Content Market

This type of blogging utilises content/inbound marketing strategy to increase the visibility of your business. The topic of the blog posts is usually about a particular subject matter related to your business. For example, Fonseka Innovation is a Brisbane, Australia based tech platform, therefore our blogs are mostly about techie topics.

What differs Bussiness and Personal Blogging is that it’s not for hobbies nor a primary way for a business to generate income. Instead, Business Blogging is a marketing channel which attracts customers and supports business growth.

There are many means for others to find your website, but the search engine is the best method. Trust me.

The more pages your websites contains, means better SEO. Although this is not always the case. Sometimes it is those few quality pages that you have developed which help the boost in traffic.

But, more pages means it will provide a higher probability of ranking. As a result, it will eventually convert into more traffic for your website.

Therefore, by producing each valuable blog post in a new web page, you are essentially adding one more indexed page to your site.
