Summer Blog Post Ideas for Your Small Business

In honor of the recent summer solstice, we’re here to provide guidance on summer content to bring new visitors to your website and boost your traffic. Seasonal content is an amazing tool to build your business online. It’s always a good idea to create new evergreen content, which is content that stays consistently relevant and will always be of interest for your readers. However, evergreen content alone rarely provides the traffic surges and bursts of immediate interest that you will need to grow your audience and gradually boost your performance in search results. 

Why Bother with Summer Blog Post Ideas?

It’s worth noting that true evergreen content is pretty rare. If your blog has been going for a while and you consistently track your analytics, you are likely aware that you only have a few pieces of content that get continuous visits and attract new readers over time. Seasonal or trendy content is an amazing tool to augment your evergreen content. Furthermore, it can really help your SEO and search engine rankings – Pinterest and Google tend to favor the content that people are searching for, and because of ongoing ranking algorithms, your seasonal content can actually perform better than your evergreen content during the months when it’s relevant.
