It was a long tough journey but I finished the Ultimate Blog Challenge a few days early. So I will take my little badge and run with it.
It was a tiring challenge to produce 31 SEO friendly posts plus promote the posts every day. For those not familiar with the UBC challenge, the Ultimate Blog Challenge is a month long challenge which occurs four times a year in January, April, July and October.
The Ultimate Blog Challenge is free to participate.
So why do you need a challenge to write a post a day? One does not. Apparently I did as otherwise I highly doubt I would do it.
Will traffic increase to your site? Mine did.
Will google ‘like you’ more if you are posting regularly. It will.
Will traffic equal increased revenue? It can.
Why The UBC Was A Challenge
The challenge part of the “challenge” for me was posting content which was SEO and therefore the goal of increasing revenue and increasing social media promotion. This month is the month of Twitter and Pinterest to increase quality followers.
However, those were just my personal goals as part of my challenge. Posts do not have to be SEO friendly for the UBC. Pretty much any type of post counts toward the challenge. I’d choose a month with 30 days though!
Main site: 20 SEO posts
Secondary site: 9 SEO posts
Blogbourne: 2 SEO posts
Wordless Wednesday posts: 4 posts
Total: 35 posts
Will I Participate Again In The UBC?
While feasible for some, it is not feasible with my job to produce and promote that much content much of which is evergreen and takes longer to write plus the images for social media promotion.
However, as it turns out with the very hot weather being inside with the computer was a bonus with the air conditioning.
