Benefits of constant blog updates

Regular blog updates can have a positive impact on a website's rankings in search engines, providing your website with increased visibility. Search engines assess how frequently a website is updated to determine the relevance and quality of its content.

Frequent blog updates can also help you to remain connected with customers on a personal level. Updating your blog frequently allows you to provide your readers with exciting and helpful content that can position you as an industry leader and expert. In addition, fresh content on your blog can help you build relationships with your readers and develop an audience of loyal followers.

Regular blog updates are an essential aspect of website maintenance and can make a big difference in the success and visibility of your blog.

Automated blog post FAQ

Do Durable employees ever ask for the verification code?

No. The Durable team will never ask for the verification code. Please do not share the code with anyone.

Why don't I receive a verification code?

There could be several reasons:

  • Are you using a US/Canadian phone number?: This automated post feature is only available in the US and Canada at the moment.

  • Are you using a number that can receive SMS messages?: You will need to be able to receive an SMS message to the number you input.

  • Are you using the correct number?: You must type the valid phone number to be able to verify. Please edit the phone number and try again.

  • Are you verifying within a short amount of time? The code expires after a certain amount of time. I recommend you verify your number as soon as possible.

In conclusion, regular blog updates offer a number of advantages to website owners and their readers. They can help boost SEO rankings, establish relationships, and create a loyal following for your website.
