Benefits of Blogging on Your Website

Build Additional Credibility
We’ve touched up on credibility in the past, catch up on some of our previous blogs here, but in short the more often a website is edited or updated, it essentially shows the Google bots your website is more credible and reliable. Add in useful information and content, it doubles your score by showing your audience and customers your company website can be a trusted source. Having blogs on your website about other topics relating to your plumbing, heating or HVAC company shows customers you aren’t just trying to push products all the time. Next time someone types in “signs my furnace is too old”, your blog will come up and lead them to your website! Establishing trust, building a relationship and executing into a sale!
Drive More Traffic
Blogging is a great way to increase your website’s SEO and traffic. If your plumbing, heating or HVAC business is posting blogs all about the industry, products, or an event you are excited about – it increases your credibility, which enables Google’s “crawler bots”, which then boosts your company to the top pages because these bots alert Google your page is more consistent, reputable and reliable. Another way most blogs get found that most people don’t think about is, when you are posting content people are interested in, this leads to blogs being shared on Facebook and other social channels which also drives more traffic to the website.
When posting a blog, whatever your plumbing, heating or HVAC website uses to publish these pages, make sure you enable comments. By allowing comments this helps customers comment and spark up conversations! This can be really popular on your page which will also lead to more website traffic. It’s the same thing that goes with Instagram or Facebook too – make sure you reply and engage in these conversations!
