You guys, Google and I are sort of BFF’s. I mean, it hasn’t always been that way, and I had to fight a lot in the beginning. But now? Thanks to SEO we are on the same page. And by the same page, I mean the front page.
If one of your goals as a blogger isn’t to get your posts on the front page of Google, then you may need to reassess. If you’re looking to grow an audience and your blog as a whole, Google should be your go-to.
It took me almost 6 months to start getting my posts ranked by Google over on Mostly Morgan, but once I started taking SEO seriously,my blogging world changed. My most popular post on Mostly Morgan (bringing in at least 1,500 daily views) is ranked number one for it’s search term on Google and several related searches. That in itself has made a world of a difference for me and the blog, and it really kicked my butt into gear in terms of utilizing SEO.
