Back in the 90s, those of us who published online in some form kept what was commonly called a “web log”. These took many forms, such as someone’s daily journals, product updates from your favorite companies, and more. When used on a business site, they give your customers a glimpse at the person behind the curtain, making them feel more connected to your brand and company. Blogs are also great for internal use to share company news and updates with your team!
Having a .blog equivalent for your website, such as mycompany.blog, keeps your company and branding in your customers mind, along with directing them right to your blog. This gives your customers a direct path to your latest updates and also has a nice side effect - boosting your search engine rankings. This is because search engines perceive an additional property to your domain as more proof that you are a legitimate and reputable business.
The .blog domain extension is right for any site that’s running a blog.
