Weidert Group Best Blogs for Inbound MarketingWe preach pretty regularly here that a blog is one of the best tools you can use to improve the results of your marketing strategy. 

A blog does so many things for you: creates opportunities for links, adds new pages to your website, keeps your website content fresh and, perhaps most importantly, gives you a chance to talk directly to visitors and prospects, providing them useful information that will keep them coming back for more. 

We've certainly seen the results here at Weidert Group. As we close out 2011, we thought we would share with you the blogs that we had the most success with. That success was based on a lot of factors - the subject matter, the links, the calls to action - and we are pretty proud of them here. We hope you like them, and if you need to use them as a model to help with your own blog writing efforts, please feel free to do so. 

Here they are, Weidert's top 5 blogs of 2011:

A Good Tweet Can Help Your Inbound Marketing Effort
Posted by Sean Johnson on Thu, Aug 25
My first thought for a title to today's blog was "How to be a Good Tweeter and not a Twit!" But, I thought it might be a bit over the top and then I noticed it was missing keywords that are important for inbound marketing success.
