Well guys and gals this is such a darn common question we have decided to go over this with you all! Unlike going the long route we decided to take and make this blog to help everyone figure this out a bit easier. If you have SEO knoledge then you know ranking is changing daily. I actually refer to Googles leaked documents from last summer as a great guide line to your Google marketing. This document outlined 200 line items that Google wanted its new staff the over 2000 people now reviewing all of googles content daily to aid their alogrythem to best rank pages, prevent issues, and protect it's users.

1. Ensure your site pages are listed and the SEO is set up properly.
This simply means you have the ability about 80% of the time with your website designer or if you manage your own site to control these tings for your business.

I can honestly say that our company blog made our business over 60% of oue 2018 revenue and now in 2019 it's again accounting for roughly 63% of our new business. Using a blog and informing your readers and traffic of ways to help solve different day to day issues regarding your services or products will help lead the traffic you want to your website.
