Google has changed the way its search algorithms work, with the emphasis moving from key words to quality content. As such, it’s becoming ever more important to have fresh quality content on your website to ensure a higher Google ranking. One way of doing this is to have a regular blog.

With this in mind we have listed five of the best iPhone apps available today to help you along the way. Click each subhead to access the app.

WordPress for iPhone

WordPress makes blogging a lot simpler. By downloading this app you can write directly from your iPhone to your website with the need for constantly having to log in or out. You can create and edit your own work as well as moderate other people’s comments all directly from your phone. The ability to add videos and images will assist you with making your blog look more professional. WordPress is easy to use and is one of the best blogging tools on the market today.

TypePad – great for adding images

Ever written a blog and then spotted something somewhere that would work great as an accompanying image? With Typepad you can take a picture with your iPhone and then attach it directly to your blog. You can also keep followers up to date by informing them as soon as you have updated your blog or have written another blog, thanks to a direct link with Twitter.

Twitter – an essential tool

Although not a blogging app itself, Twitter is an essential tool to anyone who blogs regularly. Now one of the most popular social networking sites in the world, Twitter is an ideal way to ensure as many people as possible know that you have updated your blog. The added possibility is that if picked up by the right people, your blog could go viral very quickly and have you reaching unprecedented numbers.

Watch the popularity of your blog increase when you discuss certain subjects. Learn which blogs are having a positive and negative reaction so that you may better reach your target audience. This app will help you figure out where you can improve, what subjects to avoid and how to altogether get the best from your blog.

Evernote – organization on the go

With Evernote you can take notes and organize information while on the move. If you see anything you may want to use in your next blog, then this app is ideal for storing information on a range of different subjects, so that you don’t forget whilst you are out and about on business. Then when you get home and write your blog, you can rest assured that you haven’t forgotten anything.

    Thank you so much @Kerry Butters for these very helpful app suggestions! I’ve tried several different “reminder/organizational app’s…not Evernote though…so here goes!

  • Kate – It’s always nice to have fun new apps to try, isn’t it?

  • Just wondering if there are similar apps for Non-i-Phones?!

  • I’m betting there are, Jennifer. Try searching for the same apps in the Google Play store if you have an android.

  • I’ll look into. Uh, when I’m ready to go app-crazy, that is!
