A blog to complement a website - Is it a good idea?

Let suppose I have a website from where I sell a product. Is it a good idea to start a blog so it complements that website? In other words if I start writing blog posts and connect my primary website via those posts, can I get more visitors to my primary website? What is this kind of linking called? Have you done this kind of linking in the past?

The process is called linkbuilding. You build links that links back to your website to build "backlinks". Backlinks is one of the many factors to rise up in the search engine's pages.

Of course, the best way to build links back to your site is to just let its "nature takes its course". This means, you focus on building more content and backlinks will follow naturally.

By the way, it is important to avoid cross-posting. This means that the content on both resources should be different. For example, you can place headline and link on your website, while the full article is on the blog page. You can also use social networks like FB or Twitter for doing the same: placing announces and redirecting visitors to your main website or blog.

Interesting idea!
Every website selling something has infos about the products.
Sometimes there is an updating of those infos.
A separated blog is just the evolution of this idea, so to speak, with the google-benefits of the backlinking.
On the other side your blog should be enough informative and good looking: a sloppy blog could have a bad effect on the reputation of your main website and of your products...

Posting in his website a link to his blog, and then posting in his blog a link to his website, isn't ... cross-linking?
Just kidding

Worst case is if your blog slowly dies away. As in many cases everything starts with a bang, but only few things prevail. Somehow try to make part of your blog automatic, either by including external information etc
