One you have a site up and running it becomes very
important to get some solid traffic to it. No traffic means
no sales, customers... no business, really.
Depending on your kind of business, this can be quite
difficult. If you're selling things that other people are
selling it can be very hard to get your pages ranked.
This is especially true if you're just using standard
descriptions rather than creating your own, or if you
have a company generated webpage that gives you
no control over these things.
One of the simplest ways to handle this is to start a
blog. If you have your own domain, I strongly
recommend getting the free Wordpress software (one
click install on most hosts) and using that.
But if you don't have a way to put a blog on your site,
there are many free options. Blogger is quite popular,
partially because it is from Google, and people feel it
may get spidered more often, but also because they
don't mind you advertising on it. Some other free blogs
do not want you using their sites for commercial
purposes of any kind.
The danger to any free blog is that it can be deleted at
any time, with little or no notice. But so long as you
follow the rules this will only rarely be a problem. Hosting
your own is far safer.
On your blog, you want to write posts and articles that
will bring people to your blog and get them interested
in your products. It is not so easy as writing blatant ads,
which most people won't read. You want to write
articles that will make people want to use what you
have to offer.

thanks God bless you
