I've started running a blog to help improved the rankings of my website, and it's working really well.  Should I link this blog to Facebook and Twitter?  ...I've heard duplicate content on different websites can be harmful

How would linking the blog create duplicate content? :hmm:


Unless your posts are under 140 characters each (which wouldn't make for a very useful blog, frankly) anything you post on the blog couldn't possibly be duplicated on Twitter. And simply posting an "executive summary" along with a link on FB isn't duplicate content either. In fact, posting announcements of new blog posts on Twitter, FB and other social media streams may well help bring additional traffic to your blog.

I'm not sure what you're asking. Neither Twitter nor Facebook are places that people generally "blog" directly, at least not in the way most people understand the word "blogging." So I'm not clear on what you mean by "creating a blog to social sites."


You create a blog about a topic that interests you, or that pertains to your business. You can do this any number of ways. For instance, you could create an account at Wordpress.com or on Blogger. Alternatively, if you already have a website, it's likely that your web hosting company offers the installation of blog software through their control panel, so you could create the blog on  your own domain. (This is generally preferable for businesses.)


Then, when you update the blog, you also post notices to Twitter, Facebook and other social media channels to let your followers there who might  not be subscribed to your blog's RSS feed know there's a new blog post. There are plugins and add-ons that will do this automatically, or you can manually write and post the updates yourself.


That's all there is to it. It's all very straightforward, really.
