Hi,

Adding a blog to your business's website is a great way to encourage customer loyalty and supplement your visibility to search engines.

You can configure your blog to appear the way you want it to. For example, you can decide how many posts show up on your blog or how big the font size on your blog is.

To add a blog to your site:
  1. Click Websites Manager in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.
  2.  


  3. Click Insert in the top toolbar and mouse over the text element. Select blog from the secondary drop-down list.



  4. This will open up a small window asking you to setup a name and description for your blog.


  5. The last step will be to use the Blog Settings editor on the right side of the screen to customize your blog. You can also click on "New" to start your first post.

Tips for creating a successful blog
  • Post often. The more you post the more "fresh" your website will be, and search engines may rank your site higher because of it.


  • Keep posts short. Shorter posts are more likely to be read all the way through by your readers.


  • Promote it. Tell your friends about your blog. Share links to your blog articles in your social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn.


  • Encourage subscriptions. Your blog has an RSS feed that viewers can subscribe to so they can be alerted when you post a new topic.
