Create An RSS Feed For Your Blog
You want to write a related article about your product or service that draws the reader in and gets them to click through to your website once they finish reading it to learn more about you and your business. As you build your blog you'll want to create a sitemap known as an RSS feed. An RSS feed should list all of your blog articles and be updated as you add new articles.

Not only can it help users find your content, but it can help search engines discover your site as well.
Build Natural Links
Focus on building organic links that are related to your content. If a link is not natural, it’s going to be a problem. Although the more backlinks you have, the better, more important is the quality of the links. It's far better to have a few high quality links than to have many low quality links. Reciprocal links should be used very sparingly and only if certain criteria are met such as if both sites benefit each other's audience. Focus more on getting one way backlinks.
