Blogging Buddies – The Importance of Having Online Friends
Online Friends Teach Each Other the Value of Optimization
One great benefit of having online friends is that the more experienced bloggers can teach other bloggers how to optimize their blogs’ performance. Optimizing a blog’s performance theoretically means that more visitors will be coming to the blog. Blogs give their owners the ability to have people who read the blog leave their comments; if blog owners do not desire to give people this freedom, they can de-activate the capability. For those who are seeking comments, optimization of a website would mean that more comments are being left.
Example of How an SEO Expert Helped a Fellow Blogger
An example of how becoming someone’s friend helped her to improve her blogs’ performance with traffic and comments comes from a search engine optimization (SEO) expert. This particular expert pulled two friends aside and informed them of the SEO tactics that could help them increase their traffic.
For one, she explained to them how keyword research would be of benefit to them. This expert now has proof to show everyone that keyword research does have a good effect on a blog, because one of her friends took her advice wholeheartedly and the other did not. Only one of these online friends experienced an increase in traffic to her blog.
Social Development Benefits From Having Many Online Friends
The act of blogging increases the blogger’s social development by expanding the blogger’s social circles. As a blogger gains online friends, those friends who also have other friends introduce the new blog they have found to those existing friends. In turn, those friends become the friends of the original blogger. The opportunity for friends to grow exponentially by way of this process is very high the more friends online are added to a blogger’s roster.
How Online Friends Help Their Friends Grow
As a blogger’s list of online friends grows, bloggers have even more people to help out with problems they may be having. As a result, these bloggers’ skills have the potential to increase every time they are introduced to a solution to a problem they previously did not have. In order to take advantage of this large group of friends, all a blogger has to do is ask a question, and because friends generally want to help each other, several answers appear in their comments sections.
Online friends help to increase a blogger’s knowledge by sending them important information by way of links. If one friend has a question about daffodils, for example, and another friend has been researching this subject for a long time, this friend will have links to websites and other blogs that will give their online friends what they are looking for. The more often this happens, the more a blogger’s knowledge grows.
