Using some of the images and pictures we’ve located you can post these on your blog.

Your headlines and a brief post from you should include the keywords selected from the list you’ve already compiled. Be sure to tag your posts and add your affiliate links.

The use of images will help satisfy the multi-media hunger of site visitors while minimizing the amount of written content you’ll need to supply.

Be sure to post a new image along with brief written content weekly to continue to attract the search engines and new visitors.

#4 ? Promote Your Blog
