Inology’s component systems are fully integrated and as simple to use as a word processor. Our components are continuously evolving with improved innovations and technology. Our latest release includes Blogging, Commenting and Automatic Updates.

Blogging

First, let's begin with the definition of Blog. Blog is short for Web Log. To blog is to write articles onto the same place on the internet daily, weekly, monthly, or at least with some predictable frequency. For example, http://www.inology.com.au/blog/. The modern blog evolved from the online diary, where people would keep a running account of their personal lives. Most such writers called themselves diarists or journalists.

Fully Integrated

Inology’s Blogging System comes with and is fully integrated with the Content Management System.

Search Engine & Reader Friendly

The blog has also been designed to be search engine and reader friendly. Besides the basic optimisation features that allow you to set your title, description and keywords, we have included categories and tags allowing the reader to find posts by those categories and tags as well as by author or month published. For example:

Submits to Directories

Gaining exposure for your blog is critical to building a following, readership, and revenue. Besides the basic SEO steps of adding compelling and keyword friendly titles, URL structure and descriptions, basic link building for blogs begins with listing them in blog directories.

When you post an article to the blog, the software will submit it to many blogging directories on the Internet such as Technorati which the search engines like Google and Yahoo frequently index.  This means you can be found faster and have an improved search engine ranking.

Commenting

Readers of your standard web pages, blog posts, product pages and service pages can now add comments if you allow them to do so. You can select which pages you would like to receive comments on. You can also set it so that comments need to be approved by you before they are visible by others. Getting feedback on your products and services can be very valuable to your business.

Automatic Updates

Although this has been available in Blue Rock II for a couple of months, many do not know it is there. Once you have migrated to Blue Rock II you will always stay up to date with the latest changes to the software.
