A look back at January’s blog posts.
Our first month of blogging at Unumbox Ltd.
Since starting Unumbox in 2015, we have always advocated the importance of blogging to grow the number of visitors to your website. However, despite writing blogs for many of our clients, we did not have a blog ourselves. It’s easy not to write regular content when you’re busy, which is why our clients came to us in the first place. How can we test the different theories of blogging without running a blog ourselves? We had to lead by example which is why we started our blogging section last month in January. You can visit our blog at https://unumbox.com/blog/
Our first post.
It all started with a simple blog titled ‘What are the essentials for a strong website’ which you can read here… https://unumbox.com/blog/2017/01/04/what-are-the-essentials-for-a-strong-website/
This blog post was very successful and gave us a noticable increase in our visitor count that day. This was in part because we had an active audience ready to read the first of our posts.
17 Blog articles in one month
We didn’t stop there! We posted a new article nearly every day and by the end of the month we had published 17 blogs. Here are a few articles that stood out.
Websites: DIY vs Templated vs Custom
This was our second blog post which went into some detail to explain the difference in cost, time and performance between the platform choices. This blog post was, and still is, successful at generating leads. The post quickly climbed up Search engine rankings and still provies us with new visitors on a daily basis. https://unumbox.com/blog/2017/01/07/websites-diy-vs-templated-vs-custom/
SEO IS DEAD
Our third post has been our most successful thanks to the controversial nature of the title. This post still performs well on social media, usually sparking a debate. We have found the more controversial or devisive a post is, the better it performs on Social Media. You can read this blog at… https://unumbox.com/blog/2017/01/08/seo-is-dead/
A call for guest bloggers
This post was more of an advert to get more content for the website and grow linkbacks; and it worked! We have a few guest bloggers ready to post something this month which we look forward to sharing with you.

Three alternatives to writing blog posts
We come across the same question so many times we decided to write a blog to provide answers. Many of our clients do not know what to write about in a blog. Why would an electrician want to write a blog and what would they write about? This article provides some answers to that question… https://unumbox.com/blog/2017/01/11/three-alternatives-to-writing-blog-posts/
Above or Below the fold meaning for Websites
This post was written to answer a simple question for those entering the world of website analytics. It’s something very simple but can be overlooked in most occasions. You can check out this article here… https://unumbox.com/blog/2017/01/12/above-below-the-fold/
What is an SSL certificate?
A simple question with a simple answer. We wrote this one as SSL certificates will be a hot topic this year in the online marketing world. This one is worth reading if you own a website which you would like to rank higher on Google… https://unumbox.com/blog/2017/01/15/what-is-an-ssl-certificate/
Top Google searches related to Kettering
It’s clear that we were aiming for location keyword searches here with this title, and it worked. This post has also ranked well on national search results for ‘Trending on Google’. This is a short post but is intriguing to many and worth a read if you’re local to the area… https://unumbox.com/blog/top-google-searches-related-to-kettering/
What does Dopamine have to do with websites?
Our final post in the month introduces a topic that we have been talking about during February. Dopamine is the happy chemical that gives us a kick in our brains when we feel we should be rewarded. Dopamine is addictive and is the root of most phone and Social Media addictions. Find out more by clicking here… https://unumbox.com/blog/what-does-dopamine-have-to-do-with-websites/
What’s planned for February
As we write this we’re already half way through the month. It’s clear theat Dopamine is a hot topic and we’re also using our blog to help raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. We have a few guest blogs being published very soon so watch this space.
