Google’s Official Blogs and the Website Traffic Spiral

Different organizations, both online and offline, have different ways of communicating with their audience. The audience usually includes customers, prospects, resellers, distributors, the media, or simply those who drop in out of sheer curiosity. Some communicate through newsletters, e-mail and forums in a vibrant age of Web 2.0 social interactivity.

Others choose to remain traditional and communicate the old fashioned way with brochures, radio and television. And there are those who do not communicate with their customers at all and then sob vehemently when their customers walk away looking for greener pastures. Google is unique. It uses Blogs to communicate with you. If you have never visited a Google Blog, it is perhaps time that you do.

Using Google Blogs to Increase Website Traffic

The best way to maximize website traffic on your website is to closely follow what Google has to say about page rank, position in the SERPs and link popularity. Blogs such as the Website Optimizer Blog and the Webmaster Central Blog are absolutely must reads for you and you should read them daily without fail. Take careful notes and implement the various recommendations and you will notice the difference on your website in less than four weeks. Although there is no data available on how many of Google’s official Blogs have no follows in the comments section, it doesn’t hurt to comment constructively on Blog entries along with your website URL. Remember, however, that your comments should be meaningful, relevant and constructive.

Finally, if you believe that one or more of Google’s official Blogs contains information that might interest your site visitors, summarize this information under a News and Events section on your website and upload it regularly. Be sure to credit the data correctly.

Use Google Blogs to learn, to share and to boost traffic on; your website. And so here is the list:
