BlueHost is a very, and I mean very popular name in the web hosting space — if not the most popular shared hosting company on Earth. But it’s not a little known secret that the company spends millions of dollars in marketing, each month.
I decided to try SiteGround out after hearing a lot of praises about them from users and reviewers alike for offering premium services. I’ve probably spent the most time ever with SiteGround while only trying a host to review it. SiteGround makes a lot of claims about their fast servers and best-in-class technology — so I did something simple to make this SiteGround review a bit more interesting than other reviews that I do usually, I placed a mirror of TechTage (albeit a lighter version than the fully-functioning actual TechTage blog) on a new domain and hosted it on SiteGround to test their server speed out.
Squidix is one of those web hosts which spend more on their service and customer support than on their advertising. They mainly rely on word-of-mouth promotion and still managed to grow quite a bit after starting out 5 years back. At this point, you might be thinking, this sounds a bit similar to the case of MDDHosting. There are indeed quite a few similarities between both and I’ll try to cover everything about Squidix’s services in this shared hosting review of Squidix Web Hosting.
Your blog is a venue for your business to regularly and directly interact with your customers. You publish information that they find relevant and useful, and you get to build a direct connection with your readers.
Setting up a blog is the easy part. How do you build traffic to your blog once you set it up?
In the beginning, blogs were nothing more than online journals, a place for people to put their thoughts into the ether. As time went on, blogs became a viable business model and a means to support oneself or promote a company’s product and values. With all of these new applications for the concept, things like traffic and page views became equally important.
There are numerous methods by which you can increase your traffic, but ultimately the key point is going to be your content. Consistent quality content that possesses certain key characteristics will be the ultimate driver of traffic to your site.
