    So, I am starting a blog network, or a media site, and I was wondering what would be better to focus my content on, National or Local?

    For example: If I was to write about sports and technology, should I write about national sports and tech, or just write about local (in state) sports and tech?


    It seems that it would be hard to rank and compete nationally. But if I write nationally I can write about any topic and it gives me better options when I am writing articles and posts and gives me more keywords to possible rank for.

    Or maybe I should just do site that covers both national and local? Kinda like a local newspaper website?

    Any suggestions?

    if you want some people to read your blog, i guess it's better write about national sports and tech, and you can write any topic you want right...

    Do some keyword research first for a given topic before heading off into the wilderness. This way when you get lost you a least know what direction you headed off into!

    Thanks for feedback. Anyone else want to help? Someone must have an opinion and more experience with this?
