Let’s not argue the point.
Let’s just look at the stats.
And we’ll do that. But first, let’s understand what a group blog is. It’s a class of individuals who share common attributes. In the cases we’re examining, the class is comprised of the members of the ERP Software Blog and/or the CRM Software Blog who are all Value Added Resellers (VARs) or Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) in the Microsoft Dynamics ERP and/or the Microsoft Dynamics CRM channel.
The power lies in their numbers and their monthly contributions of valuable blog content to the group blogs they are members of. The volume of content is high and varied, which drives the search engines to recognize them for scores of relevant key words. More than any individual blogger could hope to achieve.
Here are the indisputable stats:
In the month of June alone, there were more than 41,000 visitors to the ERP Software Blog and more than 24,000 visitors to the CRM Software Blog.
Since their inception in 2009, there were more than 2 million (2,000,000) visitors to the ERP Software Blog and more than 1 million (1,000,000) visitors to the CRM Software Blog.
One of the most popular posts - How Much Does a Typical ERP Implementation Cost? – has been viewed more than 1,800 times.
We are not disputing the value of individual blogs that will surely drive traffic to your individual Web sites. And that’s well worth doing. But… if your individual blog can beat the stats for either of the two highly respected group blogs above, by all means, let us know!
