The benefits of blogging for your Internet business can be varied and the reasons why each marketer does it might be different. But the fact remains that blogging can be highly beneficial for all types of businesses.

Personally, I think every home-based Internet Marketer should start and maintain a blog. Here are a few of my reasons for blogging.

First, I want to provide relevant information and recommended resources that will be of interest to my visitors. I want readers to find something interesting, informative, inspirational or entertaining when they read my blog posts. In other words, I want to provide content that offers some degree of value so visitors will feel it has been time well spent and will be encouraged to come back again. …

Next, I want to attract more traffic from the search engines and I know that a properly formatted and optimized blog post will help to achieve that purpose.

Blogging also gives you the opportunity to build internal backlinks to other pages on your website. That is part of the search engine optimization process. Blogging is a very quick and easy way to add regular content that allows natural backlinking.

You can attract direct traffic by promoting or highlighting your blog posts using methods like article marketing, Social Networking and other popular traffic techniques.
