Do I Need a Blog for SEO Purposes?

Having a blog, in and of itself, is not a guarantee for getting pages indexed. But the nature and purpose of a blog is what tends to attract search engines – and that is providing frequent posts that often focus on a specific topic and the content and headlines tend to be naturally keyword rich. Search engine spiders operate on a schedule and they learn which sites change frequently and which ones do not. Spiders will visit frequently changing sites more often and they tend to ignore sites that remain stagnant.

The keys are frequency of change and focused content of the articles or pages. A website could accomplish this just as well if the website owner posted an email newsletter to the site every month, had a user-contributed help forum that is actively used, or even updated a FAQ such as this one with a new question and its answer every couple of weeks.

Another benefit of having a blog is that not only do the posts show up in search engines, but they will also show up in “blog search engines” such as Google’s blog search and Technorati.
