You might be asking about why should I care about blogging stuff? Well, organic traffic from Google or other search engines are free, and when you are producing more blog post, you’ll get more chance to appear in Google search results. Simply think that each blog post is the new destination which Google will send the traffic to you. And when you have the blog post updated freshly on the home page it’s a good “trust signal” to Google bot.
Another thing to think about is when you write blog posts you show that the website is live to the customers. When they read newly published blog posts, they would have more trust in your brand and your products.
