Yes, good content is something you need for your Blog, everyone agrees on this. However, the good content must be original content as well.
If you use content that you don’t have the rights to and don’t give the appropriate credit to, you are plagiarizing someone else’s work. Not only could this cause severe legal issues, it will cause problems with Google.
Whilst you can pick up Private Label article packs on just about any topic, using them is not helpful http://oursminiworld.com/ . If you have these articles, then assume everyone else does – you won’t have original content. Write your content from scratch.
One way to post new and interesting content to your blog is to interview people relevant to your chosen niche and post the transcript to your blog. Be sure to make your interviewee is appropriate to your Niche though. For example, if you wanted to do an interview on Search Engine Optimization, you may interview Brad Callen (developer of the fantastic Keyword Elite and SEO Elite toolkits). An added bonus to the interview would be to record the interview itself and provide an MP3 download – I personally love these options, as I am often out and about and will download the MP3 file to my mobile phone and listen to the interview whilst driving.
Posting about news in your market is a fantastic way to update your content. Let’s face it, your readers are reading your blog because they like to be current. Posting about current events in the market will give your readers just another insight into that market. Keep in mind though that the more current the news, the better – no one wants to read old news.
You could run various contests on your blog. Make them fun, so people will keep coming back. People love to win things and by making the prize relevant to your market, you will ensure that your readers are those that you are targeting.
