I’m Felix L. Griffin: Entrepreneur, IT Professional, Social Media, Internet and Network Marketing Consultant.
Over the last twelve (12) years I have worked in the field of Information technology and Internet marketing and as you know, technology and internet marketing changes about as fast as the eye can blink. Success in ebusiness comes down to relevant online presence and achieving online marketing goals as well as being able to reach the online marketplace through the right combination of technology & marketing.
I will cover a lot of ground from my experiences from the world of Information Technology, especially in regards to Internet Marketing and eBusiness, and Network Marketing. But today we start here! BLOGGING– The Blog, formally known as the “WEB LOG”
What is a Blog?
A blog (a portmanteau of the term web log) is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries (“posts”) typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first). Until 2009 blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject. More recently “multi-author blogs” (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited. MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, interest groups and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other “microblogging” systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into societal newstreams. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
Today, there are over 156 million public blogs in existence. OMG!
WHY A BLOG MAKES SENSE.
Growing Your Business With Localized Web Traffic From YOUR OWN Search Engine-Friendly Blog Website is EASY and It Makes Sense $$$$…
Google, ranked as the #1 Search engine in the world, ranks websites based on the relevance, freshness, and content structure. With a blog, you can create powerful custom content for your target audience that search engines LOVE based on important keywords about your business type and location. You can also merge that content with specific categories and tags. Which have become the engine of SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The result…? A powerful web presence that helps propel you or your business to the top of search results!
SO WHY BLOG?
To Write “Powerful Custom Content” Specific to Your target market!
- Localize your content or expand your market

As this blog and your new blog (when you decide to get started) begins to fill with content, and you establish a web presence, search engines begin to notice, index, and list you in their results. This is often referred to as “Organic SEO”. The more custom content you have, the higher your site climbs in search results.
If you’re new to blogging and internet marketing, I totally understand and I empathize with you. You can relax, there are various content applications and programs that will take care of things for you. You don’t have to try to come out of thin air with content like I do from time to time.
