    "How often do you post to your blog?" is a very popular question, to which there is no right or wrong answer. Twice a month? Twice per week? Twice per day? Just one time a day?

    There are manydifferent blog posts that promote different scheduling of blog posts. They recommend posting at least once per week. Here's my take on the issue - the two blog posting schedules that matter, and to what kinds of blogs they are applicable.Understanding Posting Schedules

    First of all, you need understand that there is no right/wrong answer for this question, as I've already stated. Different timings may or may not work for different types of blogs.

    Although I don't believe the following advice will work for every blog, it is what worked for me (after extensive research).

    User Engagement and Blog Posting are Related

    First of all, it's a myth that readers will be annoyed if you update your blog daily. This is a myth with no evidence. One of my all-time favorite blogs sends me an e-mail every day or every two days.

    It is a joy to use. It provides me with more information than a month's worth of autoresponder messages per Sunday from any other blog.

    Users don't mind it if you only post once per week. Truth be told, readers are only looking to see how they can benefit from your blog - that's pretty much the only reason why they're there and why they signed up to your e-mail list (unless they are friends or family.

    Okay, let's get to the https://www.tindleandassociates.com posting schedules.

    Daily/Multiple Times A Day

    Oooh! This one is going to cause quite a bit controversy, don't you think?

    Yes, I do believe that blogging multiple times per day is beneficial. If for some reason you're not available to post multiple times a day, then you should strive to post at least once a day. For nearly 95% of people reading this post, that's what you should be doing.

    If you have one of these blogs or engage in the following business strategies, you should post this frequently.

    Informational/Tips Blogs

    Take this blog for example - it deals mainly with blogging, Internet marketing, and SEO tips. In other words, it provides valuable information to those who read this blog regularly.

    To be branded as an authority in your niche, your blog needs to have as much helpful, quality content on it. You can post 3-5 times per day if that is what you want.

    Most blogs on the Internet (including yours) will fall into this category.

    Personal Blogs

    Let's face it - personal blogs usually don't get much traffic. Here, the old rule that readers are only interested in personal gain applies again.

    Your personal blog is of no benefit to readers unless you are A.) Hilarious or hilarious. Fantastic writer, who can keep people spellbound.

    Chances are, you're not either. Let's say, however, that you decide to start your own blog. You should be posting once per day.

    Personal blogs are best avoided more than once per day. People like to take a moment to think about themselves and others.

    If you want to get any traffic, however, it is best to do this at least once per day. This is because that the people who do follow and read your blog regularly obviously think you're a fantastic writer or funny. And, they need their daily dose of fantastic funny (but again, don't overdose).

    The benefits

    No doubt about it, there are certain benefits you get from posting daily that you won't get if you post less often.

    Search Engine Optimization

    While this can't be proven,it is becoming more clear that Google favors blogs who post content regularly throughout the day.

    Google automatically notifies you when you publish a new blog post. Their spiders will eventually crawl your pages and rank them.

    You blog frequently if they are notified often. If you blog often, that means that your blog is active and regularly providing content to your readers.

    All things said, this can't be proven, but it's a general trend I see after conducting research in the SERP's.

    Alexa Ranking

    Although posting 10 times a day mean that you'll automatically be promoted to the top 1000 blogs, the blogs that engage a higher-frequency posting schedule often rank higher, compared to blogs that post less frequently with the same quality standards.
