Blogs are an effective way to improve search engine ranks and achieve higher search engine positions for your articles.
This is possible thanks to links from your blog to your articles. Search engines count information as valuable by reading and counting the links from other pages and the more links an article has from other pages, and the more important these pages are, the better the search engine positions will be.
1. Write several blogs about topics related to the articles and make links from the home page. Home page links are the most valuable links of all because they appear on all pages and Google counts them as links all the time, whereas links from posts are not always counted as some posts are not indexed by Google. To make links from the home page just start about ten blogs about topics related to the article, write about one post per month for each blog (ideal would be 1 post per week or even per day) and just add the links.
2. Improve those ten blogs with Facebook links, SU links, Reddit links, G+ links, etc. The more you share the higher the chances of getting indexed by Google in real time.
3. Links all the blogs to each other. That will improve Google ranks in no time!
