Small Businesses That Blog Get 55% More Web Traffic

Last week one of my colleagues posted an article to BFM's Business Learning Center entitled "How To Write a Blog That Drives Traffic to Your Website and Revenue to Your Business". The article is a fantastic guide to creating a great blog for you small business. If you still aren't convinced that your company needs a blog, here are some numbers that should help you make up your mind.

An analysis of 1,531 web-marketing clients showed a huge difference between those who blog and those who do not. Here is the key info:

  • 55% More Visitors for Companies That Blog (a measurement of the number of people that visit any page of a company's site)
  • 97% More Inbound Links (other sites linking to any page of a company's site)
  • 434% More Indexed Pages (how many of a company's pages can be found on Google/Yahoo!/Bing)

While the survey size wasn't huge (around 1,531 small- and medium-sized businesses), the numbers are pretty telling. Additionally, the study's definition of a "company that blogs" was anyone with more than one post written on their blog. Had they defined a company that blogs as one with regular blog postings, then the results would have more than likely pointed to an even bigger traffic increase for companies that blog.
