The great thing about hosting your blog as part of your site, is it vastly increases the number of search terms your potential customers could be looking for. Especially if you use your web stats to see what people are searching for.
Since so many of our competitors build sites that search engines either can’t find, or will give lousy results for (every page has the same description- or they use frames or .asp to build the site- and nothing useful shows up in the results) we decided to make it easy for our potential customers to comparison shop- we listed all of our peers on our site. So, the potential client will find a link to their site, after they’ve come to ours. We believe when they compare, they’ll see, we do good work.
It’s also fascinating to draw people through who may not need an agency, but, think we’re cool anyway. Our musings have gotten us links from all over. Our clients also benefit. Note, I’ve added who or what the competition is in parens- so you can tell right away who needs help on their sites search engine optimization (SEO)- some of these agencies and design firms have sites- but don’t have them tagged properly- or designed them in Flash– which search engines don’t like.

If we can build this kind of site traffic for our site- imagine what we can do for you.

* Jan 19 2006, it seems that the folks at Buchanan & Associates got the message- they now have a new site- but, for the life of me- I’ m wondering what they are doing. It’s some kind of “agency seekers!” site- a take off on a search engine interface- they call it the “The Most Biased Search Engine in the World™” and think they are slick- but there is nothing to search there- so how people will find it- I’m not sure. They should probably head to one of our Blogosopher seminars
