Benefits from having a blog on your existing site?

We’ve decided we would like to add a blog to our jewellery site (although we’ll be getting a new domain and new look too). However, I’m not sure what benefit it will be to the site, sure it will bring extra content and therefore extra search terms to the site. But I’ve had forums and […]

The site vs blog mix
