In blogging, there are many different types of blogging platforms. There are several types of blogs to choose from, that will suit any hobby or preference. No matter which platform bloggers choose, they can very easily publish articles, photos or videos and written content around any topics and issues that they feel passionate about.
For instance, several bloggers write about politics, others for pet care and some for personal computers. However, blogs that are business oriented are often focused into a single topic for the fact that they need to emphasize their services or products.
TIP! Headlines are what your readers tend to read first. They act like bait.
Blogs can cover a wide range of topics. Because of this versatility, several people are starting to blog. Not only can they express what they feel or advertise their products or services, they can also earn cash.
Blogs are new methods of earning income in the comfort of your own home. However, that is just the icing on the cake since blogging can bring lots of joy to several bloggers for that fact that they can share their opinions and thoughts to others and receive advise from them or vice versa.
Blogging for Business
Several businesses are exploring the world of blogging. This is a perfect marketing opportunity for any business because blogging is an instant way to communicate. Also, business type blogs can profit from search engine optimisation advantages compared to a static website, which is the biggest leverage of blogging.
TIP! Do not post a blog and move on. You need to interact with people who leave comments on your blog.
If the business has a Web site that promotes a product or service, any type of content that the business uses as the vehicle to drive the business or commerce to another level require a blog.
Blogs are very useful because they are text-based and light weight, with regards to the code used, compared to traditional Web site content. This means that blogs minimise the crawl time of search engine spiders and allow them to retrieve more information about the page to the search directories a lot faster.
TIP! Use the first sentence in each paragraph to make the main point of that paragraph. This is an old trick in journalism, a trick from back in time when the point of an article was to actually provide information.
Also, blogs are dynamic because they can be updated frequently. By frequently publishing contents for the blog, the search engine spiders visit more often. The result is that the blog can have more pages being sent over the search engines compared to the business’s opponents. This is very good indeed if the competitor is the one who has a static Web site. This can also offer the business blogger a strategic chance to reach out to more potential customers, whilst also increasing their business revenue.
Personal Blogging Benefits
TIP! Make your blog appear reliable and informative by keeping yourself informed of new ideas and information at all times. You need to create a good reputation and that means it is imperative that you know what you are blogging about.
Normally, personal blogs have the characteristics of being much more visually exciting or interesting compared to a strictly business based blog. So, a blogger updating his/her blog for personal reasons will have more motivation in updating personal details and keeping their friends or family regularly updated about events happening their lives.
Many bloggers find comfort in blogging personal contents. Additionally, if you create a personal blog, you are open to the idea of sharing your interest with other people who might visit your blog.
TIP! One way to engage your blog readers is to add a poll to your blog. This feature is commonly available on most blogging platforms and allows you to ask for input from your readers.
Like any other blogs, personal blogs can be incorporated with photos, videos and other multimedia elements. You can create a personal blog about anything that you feel passionate about.
There are even personal blogs with contents regarding products that the blogger is really interested in and these are often called “Revire Blogs”.
Blogs are very easy to use as far as content management is concerned, which allows you to publish articles right away and in real-time. These platforms for communication provide people with new opportunities to connect with others both in a personal or professional manner.

1. Multiple BLOG accounts (platforms)
You will have the ability to create many blog accounts (via groups), mix up different contributors and published multiple blog contents for multiple WordPress accounts. That has been specifically created to include powerfully effective sales psychology built into them. This will ensure you convert visitors to your site into PAYING customers at the highest levels.
This multiple blog capability can also create additional unique content to spread further into the Internet. With Groups your reach expands exponentially.
Individual friends and groups can be combined to create unique content that can easily be published to your WordPress, Joomla, blogger.com, etc. blogs with Markethive Widgets and Plug Ins.
With a group of 100 members, aside from the massive shared content, with a Group membership of 100 where we will assume each member has about 5000 social net friends and contacts in their respective Social accounts like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.
These are huge numbers as we estimate just the Social reach of 500,000 add to that each members back links via their social networks but assuming each member has 2-3 WordPress blogs the legitimate white hat back links occurring also reach astronomical numbers.
Now add to that a small coop to publish a real paid for Press release and you start to understand the startling advantage Markethive has just regarding Markethive’s blog platform and link manifestation.

Keyword management for better search engine results.
Research and analysis tracking allows for continuous improvement.
When it comes to search engine optimization (SEO) campaigns, choosing the right keywords is the most important step. Selecting the wrong keywords will lead to bad results so it pays to learn how to perform a strategic keyword analysis so you pick the right ones. Generally speaking your goal is to identify keywords with:
A) The highest search volume possible.
B) The lowest competition.
C) Those that accurately relate to your business.
High search volumes and high competition often go together (but not always… look for sweet spots!) Typically you’re looking for low competition keywords that still have good search volumes. So long as the keyword relates to the content on your website your “bounce rate” will be low and the traffic will stick.
The Keyword Analysis tool is designed to help you keep track of your research results as you perform your strategic analysis. There are a variety of external tools and systems that are helpful in evaluating keywords, however the statistics tracked by this system are found using Alexa and the Google Keyword Planner.
This will multiply how many people actually FIND your blog! (Marketers pay from hundreds, to thousands of dollars every month for this service—you get it for FREE!)

5. WordPress Plugins by Markethive
When we set out to build Markethive, we recognized WordPress to be the world leader in Blogging platforms. We will never dispute that nor attempt to overcome or replace WordPress.
Our goal is to make WordPress better with our blogging platform and CMS enhancements. Case in point is our WordPress (Markethive) plugin(s). We have several but this plugin is designed to import and manage your content you produce on Markethive into your one or multiple WordPress blog(s). Without Markethive, to manage a (blog cloud) portfolio of many WordPress on multiple domains with unique content on each of them for different agendas and markets, especially with a moderate to large team of content producers becomes a literal nightmare.
Why WordPress Is The Best Website Platform
There are many different ways of creating a website, you can purchase industry standard software like Dreamweaver and take courses to understand how to use it, or you can use content management software such as WordPress that allows you to quickly and easily get a website live within minutes. This is one of the many reasons why WordPress is the best website platform for beginners and professionals alike.
With WordPress, you are getting a system that takes minutes to install on your server, and then access to thousands of free and paid themes. Your website will look professional from the moment you start. Furthermore, there’s a wide range of plugins and widgets that can easily be applied to the site to make it more user friendly and interactive.
And the only skills you need are the ability to write, click the mouse button and add this stuff in. It really is easy to add content, it’s just like posting on a forum really, and has a very low learning curve. But, because of its flexibility, you can be as basic or advanced as you feel, and as you grow to learn more about it, so to will your site grow and utilize new concepts and designs being created for WordPress.
Here’s some other great aspects about the WordPress system:
WordPress is Open Source:
This means it is free, other people can easily create themes, plugins and so on for you to use with it, and it is completely flexible.
WordPress is Quick to Setup:
This means you can focus on having several websites and easily be able to maintain them all without having to create them all from scratch. This is particularly useful if you are getting into internet marketing for example. You can have many websites set up for different products you are selling.
WordPress Gives Multi User Functionality:
Are you a small business or organization that requires more than one person to add content to the site? Again, WordPress can help. It enables the site owner to set up users for them to post to the site. What’s more, certain privileges can be applied to these users so they only have access to posting content, and therefore not be able to mess around with the functional side of the site.
Website and Blog All-in-One:
Although WordPress is set up more as a blogging platform, it is still very easy to configure it to be a standalone site, with a blog attached. There are many plugins which make this even easier to do, and so any small business or organization can have a website and blog created in a couple of hours that looks great, and is ready to go.
Backing Up and Security:
WordPress is very easy to back up, and there are many secure plugins to choose from to make it more secure than it already is.
These are just a few of the most important reasons why WordPress is the best website platform, but there are many more. It’s major advantages are the low learning curve, and speed of having a site up and running. If you are a person who needs a website, but has little time and money to set one up, then WordPress is your friend. It’s a fantastic system used by millions of people across the globe.
6. MH Blog Swipe
Markethive blog system allows you to make your content available to the entire public population within Markethive, or Just to your friends or just to members in all the Groups you belong or a selection of them or just one (your choice) or private so no one can Swipe your blog.
Why? There are many sound reasons for this.
Curating: Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme. The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information. Markethive offers features to it’s groups you create. Groups are platforms for blogging.Simple set up a Curating Group for yourself and Swipe the blogs in Markethive as a collection of content you may want to use in your publications.
Proofing: You may have a group of members that want to edit and rewrite your content. Trust me,this is an active phenomena in Markethive. Produce a blog and you will get many critiques so I just offer to them to swipe it, edit and change it as they see fit then let me know. If I like it, I swipe it back. Another option is to actually have a proof reader on staff and do the same procedure.
Cocktails: With Markethive’s ability (feature) to create unlimited Groups each with a different cocktail of content curated, aggregated or from multiple Group memberships, the options to produce unique content for unlimited WordPress blogs controlled from within Markethive is unlimited.
Then there is the learning curve. I have personally mentored newbie bloggers who just couldn’t or wouldn’t take the first step. In many a live webinar, I would quickly assemble a viable blog article, the instruct the students to Swipe my blog post, then in the webinar they would edit, alter, upload and download images, creating an altered blog result of their own.I have witnessed new bloggers after this type of training go from poorly and rarely produced blog posts, to 1-2 dynamic and excellent on topic blog posts daily. In other words, Markethive is now churning out a new breed of excellent and dynamic bloggers.
