In just short of the first year that Strait Web Solutions has been providing blogging services to RV parks and campgrounds, the company announced that three of its clients’ blogs have been named to Feedspot’s list of Top 100 Camping Blogs Every Camper Must Follow.

The campgrounds blogs that were chosen were Grandview Campground in Hardin, Mont., Niagara Woodland Campgrounds in Ransomville, N.Y., and Camp Bell Campground in Campbell, N.Y.

The camping blogs featured on the list were chosen based on:

  • Google reputation and search ranking.
  • Influence and popularity on social media sites.
  • Quality and consistency of posts.
  • Feedspot’s editorial team and expert review.

“Adding a blog to your website and consistently updating it with RV and camping related topics serves two audiences — the campground’s customers and the search engines,” said Roxi Baxley, owner of Strait Web Solutions. “Each year we see website visitors doing more research online before booking a reservation and we have increased competition in the search engines. Keeping your website fresh with new content keeps visitors reading longer and gives search engine spiders a reason to come back more often, all of which factor in when working to improve search-engine rankings.”

Many of the clients who took advantage of Strait Web Solutions’ reduced fees for the first year have seen increased website traffic and/or improved placement in the search engines, according to the company. “We are just getting started,” said Baxley, “Next year will see even more effort on our part to promote our clients’ blogs to relevant media outlets online. Their success is our success and we are happy to have been chosen to work with them.”
