This is a very real issue that all bloggers should think about when they are trying to maintain their blog and bring in new readers. How often should you post a new blog?
Some news blogs update several times per day, while other blogs are lucky to be updated once per month.
So what is the right answer for your blog?
The right answer is going to depend on the goals you have for your blog.
If you have a personal blog it doesn’t really matter how often you post. You are posting mostly for your own benefit.
Keep in mind that if you want regular readers for your blog, then your post frequency is going to be very important.
If you want visitors to come to your blog every day, then you are going to want to post something on your blog at least once per day.
If you want visitors to check back every once in a while, then posting once or twice per week is probably enough.
Search engines like Google and Yahoo love continually updated blogs. So if you are looking for a good search engine ranking, you will want to pace yourself so that you can be sure to update your blog on a continual basis.
Don’t Spam Your Blog Readers
Give them time to read older posts
In fact, when a loyal reader does subscribe to your RSS feed, they may actually be turned OFF your blog if you post too often. Too many headlines come flooding into their feed reader and they will drop you, regardless of how great your posts are. It becomes overwhelming and too much work for a reader to keep up with.
