Holiday Blogging is an integral part of a company’s business life and marketing plan. We know there is no better time to express our warmest gratitude for our friends, clients, supporters, and blog-readers. And no one would deny that 2020 has been a tough year. Authentic gratitude can be difficult to express in a year when the COVID-19 pandemic, restrictions, social upheavals, and economic challenges confront us all.
Allow me to profess my gratitude to all who read this page and to the businesses which allow us to create their online voice. As I have stated previously, Angel Kissed SEO Services is a business based on joy, mainly my joy of writing. So this is my time of year! I always delight in it because of the joyful, optimistic feeling in the very air of the Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanza season.
Even after a decade of writing pages and blog-posts for clients, I never touch the keys of my computer without feeling a sense of joy. With that joy comes an overwhelming sense of gratitude that the universe. I am so happy that the powers-that-be allow me to do this great service for a living. “If you love what you do, you never work a day in your life.”
Blogging Tips for Holiday SEO Sharp Blogs
Right now, businesses are facing the most amazing part of the retail year. You could be a tiny little local website or a vast online store. However, no matter the size of your business, the rules are the same for your blogging success during this season of festivities and sales.
Back-Up for the Back Story…
First, let’s look at some computer usage, digital marketing, and online shopping facts:
Everybody is online: “The world population is 7.8 billion and the internet has 4.66 billion users.”
And Everybody Shops: “Amazon accounted for 44% of all U.S. e-commerce sales. A quick example is 2017’s Black Friday. Most certainly, shoppers spent $5 billion online.
Plus, Everyone Searches: If consumers don’t buy, they at least research their purchases online. “4 in 10 purchases are made using only an online channel for searching and buying.”
And More and More Consumers Search by Phone: “In 2018, about 64 percent of paid Goggle search clicks originated from mobile units, with mobile phones accounting for nearly 56 percent of total clicks.”
Holiday Blogging: Back To The Basics
All of these statistics do not happen automatically the minute you open your online shop. It still surprises me that many new website owners believe that online presence means instant sales. However, you do increase your chances of getting your share of the holiday “pie” if you use some essential SEO on your website and in your blog.
Are You A Blogger or a business owner? Either way, we thought it would be good to review some of the most basic tips you might need to sharpen your game. Let’s see if you can make your website work a little harder, or at least a little smarter.
Likewise, if you don’t “get” the meaning of these little tips, that’s alright. Just hire a webmaster and a blogger that does.
- SEO: Make sure that your content is well-written.
- Spelling errors have shot down many good websites. And your content, both pages, and posts must be individualized. Think deeply about those meta tags and URLs.
- For every blog, target a specific keyword, which you find by using the classic keyword research process.
- Each page and post should offer the consumer useful information, not “fluffy” stuff.
- Dig deep for your meta-tags and URL. Do not forget that specific keyword.
You or your blog-writer might strongly benefit from Yoast if you are not yet using it.
Holiday Blogging: Phone Friendly
We won’t go into details about the best SEO practice for your entire website. But, we hope you and your webmaster are aware of it. And we would be remiss if we did not mention that you had better be well-optimized for phone use. If your site is not phone-friendly by this time, you are missing stellar amounts of sales. Naturally, you are also going to make sure “your category and product pages are fully optimized to drive conversions.”
Angel Kissed SEO Services: On Feeling Blessed
We wish you the joy of this festive time of year, whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanza, The New Year, or Winter solstice.
Each year at this time we talk about all the benefits of being in this blogging and writing business. And every year we discover that our number one benefit is the same: Our relationship with our amazing clients. We are very grateful, because, without your loyalty and support, Angel Kissed SEO Services could not exist.
And every year we also conclude that creative partners like the website wizards at www.orlandowebsitedesign.com, have given us the chance to do what we love.
A Blessing In Disguise: Look for the Silver Lining
As I face a beautiful, joyous holiday, I am especially grateful for the amazing support from friends, relatives, and loyal clients during the last two years. I had a major back injury and a long period of recovery. Now I can walk 2.00 miles every other day at the local park, and lots of steps on my treadmill. The back injury experience has taught me better planning, better time management, and a better appreciation of health and strength. So, yes, I see the positive side of life!
A Closing Christmas Time Wish
So this blog is dedicated to you, my clients, and friends, and so is the gratitude in my heart. Your present this year will be the same as it was in previous years, a “gift-box” of genuine, heartfelt wishes for you. May you…
1. …Enjoy the treasured memories of the past.
2. …Find the courage for the challenges and victories of the present.
3. …Discover a future that overflows with the treasures you hold dear.
And we hope your joy and faith will lead you to peace. Have a gorgeous holiday. Of course, there will be a Part II to this blog, but you won’t see it until next year—and that won’t be long! Happy New Year!
