Maximizing Traffic with Strategic Blogging & SEO Strategies

The Wild & Crazy Blogging Experiment

In this week’s staff meeting, we heard about a crazy SEO experiment.

A business receiving 2000-3,000 visitor sessions a day, decided to see if they could increase their website visitors and thereby increase business by blogging more often.

So they decided to add 1000 blogs to their website in one year.

In 2022 they posted 997 blogs – almost 3 a day (878 new blogs plus 119 updated blogs)..

Here’s what happened –they grew to 16,000 to 22,000 visitor sessionsa day.

Their business increased by 10 times. (A privately owned single software business.)

Action item for innkeepers?Meet with your staff and start brainstorming topics. Come up with 25 topics, then 50, then 100. Keep a running list of topics.

Then design a way to make it happen. At least once or twice a month. Work up to one a week and see what happens!
