Health Blogging Has Taken Off In the Time of COVID-19

By Sona Mathews

There’s no question that Coronavirus has changed the world around us. As we near a full year of lockdowns, protests, social distancing, and over a million deaths worldwide, it’s important to take note of the changes.

The world is a different place now and will likely never return to its former self. While this may sound a little frightening, it also offers everyone the opportunity to reflect on how our lives have changed.

One major change that occurred during this time took place in the realm of blogging. With a pandemic sweeping the globe, more people have been concerned with their health — and rightly so.

The Internet is an amazing source of information for people who need to know the best practices for staying safe.

As it currently stands, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the World Health Organization (WHO), recommend social distancing of at least 3 meters (approximately 6 feet), wearing face masks in public, and thoroughly washing hands as needed.

However, there are a lot of questions that these health organizations have not answered. Even if they have answered them to some degree, many anxious readers desire more in-depth information.

As a result, health blogging has seen a huge uptick in 2020, as readers clamber to find new information related to case counts, risk factors, quarantining, and mental health.

While the topics above are among the most popular in health blogs this year, there’s also a lot of interest in non-traditional therapies as well.

In many locations, hospitals are overflowing with COVID-19 patients, causing many people with minor conditions to stay home.

Over time, this forces people to seek out new treatments.

For example, Gainswave Therapy — a new therapy for erectile dysfunction — has become extremely popular since the beginning of the pandemic.
That said, people are generally more concerned with health issues directly related to COVID-19. One of the top searches related to Coronavirus is “COVID-19 cases” or “COVID case counts.”

To gain traffic from these searches, many bloggers have built pages or entire websites dedicated to real-time tracking of the virus.

Updates on local case counts often serve as low-hanging fruit for SEO bloggers, especially those dedicated to a particular region or city.

A lot of Internet users also want to know about additional precautions they can take. For example, many people ask questions like:

  • How often should I wash my hands?
  • Do I need to take a shower after going outside?
  • Which mask is most effective?
  • Do I need to wash every food product that I buy?
  • Is it safe to be in a crowd with a mask?

And the list goes on! The truth is that people have a lot of questions related to Coronavirus safety.

Fortunately, well-researched bloggers have jumped into action to provide answers.

However, it’s important to remember that not every blogger is well-versed in the subjects they address.

Make sure to double-check official sources if you’re not sure how to proceed.
