The use of social media for marketing purposes has increased over the last year and is projected to grow in the coming year.UD2BDVF3S5WY   Social media is widely used by businesses of all sizes to market their products and services.

Approximately ninety percent of all mobile phones being used are smart phones.  Everywhere we go, people are using their smart phones to check their e-mail, read articles, and research products and services on the Internet.   Therefore, if you write a blog or own a website, it is important to to make sure that they are optimized for mobile phones and tablets, so that it uploads quickly for your readers.

Wordpress and Blogger blogs can be optimized for mobile phones relatively easily.  All it takes is signing into the Wordpress and Blogger dashboards to program the blog for mobile phones.  This process takes under two minutes and promised great rewards in the form of more loyal readers and more traffic to the website.

Readers typically check content on the Internet upon arising from bed in the morning, on the way to work, and on breaks during the day.  It has become a way of life for so many people, that is is important to keep up with this trend and to even plan a marketing strategy to capture more of the market through smart phones and tablets.

More Traffic to your Website

3d-text-1-1383208-m

If you are looking to gain more traffic to your website and hopefully to produce more sales, you must have a blog.  Everyone who is in business for themselves must have a blog to derive more exposure to the business UD2BDVF3S5WY.

A blog should be written on a regular basis and should be well researched in order to derive repeat readers.  The blog should be interesting enough to keep people coming back.  It is going to take hard work to keep a steady flow of traffic, but once the content is added on a regular basis, the benefits are rewarding and lucrative.

It is not enough to write the blog, but it has to be visible so that readers and prospective customers can find it.  Placing the blog in highly visible blog directories can help.  One of the most popular search engines for blogs is Technorati.  If you add your blog to Technorati, it can be properly indexed, highly visible, and it will give you a chance at being in the top 100 blogs on the Internet.

Some of the reasons why you will have more visibility on Technorati is because other blogs will link to it, increasing your authority, which means that your blog’s ranking will increase.  As the ranking increases, you will experience more traffic to your blog.

The blogs are listed according to the content which you discuss on the blog.  For example, here are some of the religious (spiritual) blogs listed on Technorati.  If you are ministering to people through your work, and desire to reach a multitude of people, Technorati is the place you need to be.

If you are already listed on Technorati, but have not yet experienced the influx of readers, I would encourage you to review the blogs listed in your category on the site and study why these blogs are so popular.  Each blog has an authority assigned to it which indicates how many blogs are linked to it.  Then begin to make changes to your blog to attract the readers your are trying to attract.

Psalm  35:27 - “Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
