Your blog has to be updated every time by releasing quality blog posts as often as possible; as this will increase the number of pages on your website and would definitely generate maximum entry points into your website from search engines and other channels.

I can assure you that nobody would read your articles if the headlines are not appealing since they are the first thing visitors look at when they open your blog. Write on what is trending – what people are dying to read.
