25 Aug How often should you update your website blog?
Once a day? A week? Bi-monthly? There’s no right or wrong answer to how often you should update your website blog. It’s all about what kind of schedule fits your lifestyle and is easy enough to commit to on a long-term basis.
You do need to decide on a somewhat regular schedule to gain traction and following for your blog. If your website’s blog revolves around current news and your blog’s purpose is a popular news topic, it’s likely that you can easily find enough relevant information to write a blog once a week or even more frequently to satisfy your readers’ needs.
If your blog is more focused on something less newsworthy such as a company blog on new developments at your office, you may decide to throw out a schedule and just write whenever there’s news to discuss. However, do try and update at least once a month to tell the search engines that you’re still regularly supporting and updating your site.
If you’re adamant about setting up a schedule, make sure that it’s one you can keep. One of the worst things you can do is start strong on a blogging schedule and then forget about it for weeks or months. To reduce the risk of this happening to you, either pre-write a few blogs so you always have one ready to post, or keep a list of ready-to-go topics that you can pick from so you always have ideas to write about.
Don’t feel pressured to update every day just because some blogs can do so – those types of blogs are generally more personal experience blogs or blogs related to hot and heavy news industries. If you don’t feel your website follows these formats, don’t worry – update on a schedule you know you can handle.
