Why do I need Blog Categories? When you write the entries for your blog, you will notice that they have some topics in common and some how they relate with each other. But how do you organize them? Yes… with Categories. Having your blog organized in categories will help you and your readers keep track of certain topics they are interested in, since they can create a map like guide of your articles.
Here is a list of three things on how blog categories will help your readers
When someone looks for a solution or a tip for certain theme or activity, they have to navigate through a lot of pages, and if the writer does not have categories on his blog, it may be difficult for them to find what they are looking for. So, having categories will guide them directly to the answers they need, saving them a lot of time and making your blog one of their top choices
Having Blog categories can be an advantage for you since you are showing beforehand to the readers that you have other topics that you write about and that can be of their interest. This will help you to drag different kind of audience, and thus will give you more popularity.
When having a blog you definitively want to have your entries listed on the top of the google’s search results. Blog categories and SEO are holding hands in this matter. When you have a category, you can use keywords to describe them, and google will catch them to index them properly, so it’s a great opportunity for you to optimize your entries.
Understanding categories and applying them properly may take a little time, but in order to make the task simpler, you can draw a sketch of how your articles are related with one another, and this will give you an idea on how you can archive the entries under specific categories. But be careful! having too many categories can confuse the reader and even yourself, so try to keep them as few as you can and make them as different as possible.
