Business Idea - SEO blogging

I think that anyone who blogs knows just how easy it is to write content and press "publish". We also know that Search Engines love the simplicity of Blogs, thus ranking them relatively highly for SEO searches. Business Idea Start up a service which offers blogs, with content written (by you) on a regular basis. You could charge by the article, or a set fee for 6 months/12 months worth of blogging. Each blog post will point back to (a page on) the companies website. Abandon traditional SEO methods I can foresee companies abandoning traditional SEO methods - after all what's the point of having a website SEO'd when it's far simpler (and probably more productive) to simply write up a Blog - in addition a blog brings a "face" to a company... Costing Traditional SEO firms charge anywhere upto 20k or more for an ongoing promotion. I can envisage companies even halfway serious about SEO paying a few thousand pounds for 6 months of quality blogging. Work involved? Sure, this is not an AIS by any stretch of the imagination. A lot of work involved, I would say at least 1 hour per day...to research the article and type it up. The Concept The concept is valid - the problem would be finding a company that is willing to; ~ take a chance on SEO blogging, and ~ does not have the knowledge (or time) to do it themselves What are your thoughts on this? Valid idea, or waste of space?

Could defo be a good idea, youd need to find a blog host who wouldnt mind it, and going back to your last post the content would obviously have to be valid, but Im guessing you meant that anyways as that would be needed for seo.

Businesses arent using blogs enough.

I use my blog for SEO and add links when I can and where appropriate. I don't know if I would hire a company to do it though as it would be similar to hiring a content writing company (there are many) to write 1 blog. If you got the company to write an article you could submit that to hundreds of article sites, and get hundreds of links back. IMO that is a much more efficient and better use of your SEO $$$.

I really like the idea of doing 'blogging for hire' with the product links to some companies webpage.

I guess this is essentially doing a merge between ghost writers and bloggers then selling the service.

You could essentially just be a middle man between a company blog and a ghost writer that loves getting paid to write articles.

The big issue, as you point out, would be finding a company that wants to pay the bucks for a blog they 'could' write themselves but then never get around to.

hmmmm, bit of food for thought.

Coming back to this, it would be quite possible to find a company that offers a good Affiliate Scheme (eg > 30% commission), then simply create a blog and write 6 months worth of articles...

Have all the links going through your Affiliate ID...

The advantage of doing this, is that you (as the Blogger) would have good efficacy data to present to a company when/if you offered the service commercially.

In addition to which, you might also have earned some nice $£¥ during those 6 months of Affiliation...
