Huh, that's a good question.

I am not sure why do you think blog topics should be an article. I would rather like to see informality in my service company blog like their experience with different level of support and service. What are they planning in future etc. Whatever you are talking about, shouldn't be a topic for "BLOG" just to make search engine position. These are article base and they are definitely different than a blog post.

It's not just for search engine position, though that is an added benefit. It's also to build a readership and traffic. We write about all different kinds of topics, including service and support. I think more informal blog posts alongside more formal articles provide the best of both worlds -- overall, the most informative and interesting reading.

I agree with Anneke, although I can see your point. What are prospects searching for once they find your site, or what are your clients looking for on your site - information. If the information (content) they find is relevant, whether it's in article or informal format, they'll likely stick around.

SEO is getting boring.

How so? Every week there's a new method or tweak that someone can do on their site to help improve their rankings. How do you feel that it's getting boring? It's definitely not like it used to be 12 years ago, there's actually a skill involved these days.

Definitely don't see SEO getting boring! I once worked picking up paper rolls off a conveyor belt and handing them to a woman who then put them into a box - that was boring. I lasted all of 4 days.

I guess, just like anything, if you're not interested in SEO and you don't care about your page rank, it could get boring quick. But if that's you, maybe web hosting isn't the best business choice? Or maybe you can just hire people to handle the SEO for you. But yeah, it sure ain't boring to me either!!

Talking about all webmaster related issues could be great as all sites admins, no matter what business they are maintaining and moderating are interested in reading more on these issues like promoting websites and generating cash from them. Even though your blog could mainly cover the hosting related ideas, but like forums you can commence talking about lots of other web related points.

Personally I think there are tons of SEO articles out there and I'm currently more interested in articles of running a hosting business. Problems you get while running the business and how you fixed them etc. And how to prevent common mistakes!

Well, like Bermuda said, we're trying to cover a wide range of hosting-related topics. SEO is definitely one of them but hopefully there will be enough other content to interest those who'd rather not read SEO articles. So far the response has been positive, and I'm always looking for topics if there is something specific you'd like to see. I'm still working on the great suggestions I got earlier in this thread! Thanks for all your feedback!

Seriously, there are tons of articles and books out there about running a hosting business. Just on this one forum alone (HD), there's a wealth of information. What are some of the topics we could expand on here? Possibly preventive management, entrepreneurial thinking, communicaton strategies, listening skills, how to negotiate to win and on and on. If you have a topic of specific interest to you, throw it out for the community to talk about.
