Add a blog to your ecommerce website to improve SEO and promote repeat business
Successful ecommerce is all about connecting potential customers with the products they need. This means making your products as visible as possible to customers that are ready to buy. A blog is not only a powerful SEO and marketing tool, it’s a great way to connect with your customers and keep them coming back. Our blog add-on for AspDotNetStorefront makes it easy to include a full-featured blog right on your existing ecommerce site.

Blogging For Search Engine Optimization
As search engines continue to lend more weight to relevant content, maintaining a blog has become a great way to improve your site’s search engine ranking and develop domain strength for a wider variety of keywords. Unlike standalone platforms, our blog add-on keeps search engine friendly content right on your domain for maximum SEO impact.

Even for ecommerce sites with keyword-rich product descriptions, extending relevant content to a blog adds valuable additional pages and links. Further still, search engines lend importance to fresh and regularly updated content and blog pages are more likely to receive inbound links from other websites. Adding a blog to your ecommerce site will attract more search traffic and get more exposure for your products.

Connect With Your Customers
Maintaining a blog is a great way to increase the number of potential customers that visit your ecommerce site, but it’s also a great way to keep them there. Offering useful information on issues related to your industry establishes the credibility and trust that will pay dividends in repeat business and customer loyalty. Eventually customers will come to you as a trustworthy go-to resource for information and products in your field.

Your blog is an ideal opportunity to expand on product descriptions and identify important product features that address your customers’ needs. Tying your blog posts back to relevant products builds a network of information and product solutions that encourage customers to more actively explore your full product offering. With our easy blog add-on for AspDotNetstorefront shopping carts it all happens right on your own site.

Our blog add-on for AspDotNetStorefront is a simple and easy way to add a fully-functional blog to your ecommerce site and offers a broad range of great features.

Frequently Asked Questions
Question:What does 2-year archive with counts mean? We will have a lot more than 2 years worth of content... - Michael (10/19/2016)
Response:It creates month/year based groupings in the lower right of the blog, so this allows you to easily access articles/content based on published dates.
Question:We are already using departments. Will this create any issues? - Michael (10/19/2016)
Response:No issue, you can use it in conjunction with other departments/sections. However, if you have a section menu, it will show up in that menu too.
Question:1. Our client has a multistore set up, with each store having a unique graphical design. Can the blog be set up to use the design/skin of the store in which it is displayed? 2. Can the blog entries be tagged such that posts for one store are displayed in one store/skin and posts for the other store are displayed in the other store/skin? 3. If the client is already using "departments" for other functions, will this conflict with the blog set-up? - Annette (08/26/2014)
Response:Thank you for your questions Annette! 1) Yes, uses XmlPackages and styles so can be made store specific by putting into store's skin 2) Yes, since it uses products as modified blog posts, you can map them to different departments mapped to each store as needed 3) No, you can link to it from anywhere so shouldn't conflict. Thank you.
Question:How do you set up the Blog in the admin side of the cart? - John (03/24/2014)
Response:It uses the carts Department as the "blog" and the articles in the blog are the products mapped to the department.
Question:How are posts categorized? - John (03/24/2014)
Response:Posts or blog articles are categorized within sub Departments of the main Department which is your Blog. By mapping products to the different departments representing blog categories, you can categorize your posts.
Question:How do site visitors post comments and/or replies? - John (03/24/2014)
Response:Since the module uses the cart's rating system, your customers can post comments and replies as ratings. These ratings are taken without the star rating (just using the comment portion) and become the replies and comments within the blog article.
Question:We have a client who wants a "Latest Blog" widget on his home page. Do you have a way to show a latest blog feed on any page of the site? - Corey (12/09/2013)
Response:Hello Corey, as the Blog uses the entity/product cart's functionality, one can easily make additional XmlPackages to show latest Blog articles wherever needed. We did it on our home page for example, upper right content area, so we could even provide that as an example.
Question:What does the administration for this look like? - Richard (02/11/2013)
Response:The Blog add-on uses the cart's existing Administration suite and features. By using custom XmlPackages and existing cart features, we were able to keep/use the cart's admin for all administration of the blogging functionality.
