There are two primary ways people will come to read your blog. The first is via search engines. If you’re writing about your business’s topic, you need to be sure you’re doing keyword research. Find out what people are searching for that’s related to your industry. Then use those keywords in your blog posts. The more you write using keyword phrases the more opportunity you’ll have to bring in targeted traffic to your blog via search engines.

The second way people read your blog is through RSS readers. These are people who already found your blog, like your content and want to make sure they don’t miss a thing. Each blog post is imported into their feed reader which shows them all the new posts from your blog as well as other blogs they are subscribed to. From the RSS feed you can drive these readers into your site, whether it be your blog or your main business content areas.
