If the only reason you're blogging on all those platforms is because you think it's going to "skyrocket" your site to the top of the search results, you're wasting your time.

Blog because you have something to say. Choose your platform because it's one you find easy to work with, that suits the theme and message you're trying to get across.

Blogging can potentially help your rankings, but it will take time -- and it takes an strong, well-written blog. Crappy writing that you're just cranking out to meet some artificial publication schedule designed to boost search rankings will not get the job done. And in any case, it isn't going to be quick. Blogs can take years to attract the kind of readership and engagement that would be useful.

A blog does not help a bit simply because it exists. It helps only when it gets a significant number of social shares, links and comments.

Blogs that are written solely for the purpose of boosting rankings seldom end up fulfilling their purpose, and often end up taking time away from other, potentially more useful, marketing activities.

Focus on creating your blog brand. Free sites like blogger are hard to do this largely because your domain isn't personalized.

Creating a self-hosted blog is the best option because of this reason.

Blogging is not enough for rankings because there are lots of metrics to be considered to improve your site. So that take the possible mediums to expand your influence.

I wouldn't waste my time blogging on free platforms if you're trying to build a business. You have to remember, you don't own those platforms.

So if you're putting a lot of time and energy into those platforms, why NOT put that effort into your own self-hosted platform. You can use your self-hosted blog to help you build your brand and your business.

It takes a lot of time and effort to build up a blog to get followers. Most people won't take you seriously if you're using a free platform.

I highly recommend that you start a self-hosted blog. It's the right way to build a blog that you actually own. It's not hard and you can find affordable hosting that won't break the bank.

Update it on a regular basis and give it time. Don't be in such a hurry to see traffic. It's not going to happen overnight. However, if you keep working towards your goals on a regular basis, eventually, you will see the results you want.

Default Blogging Takes Time

Blogging takes time to get your articles noticed. It's best to write frequently, with relevant topics in order to get certain types of readers / future customers.
Plan your blogging posts on a weekly basis so you can keep in track of your postings, where you post and when. By practicing this, you can make sure that many readers come by and read your blog posts.
Good luck.
