If you did’nt already know about the number 1 seo method, then Google have just reminded us all. In a blog post designed to give “more guidance on building high-quality sites,” Google gave the simple advice that quality content is what they want.
Google’s algorithm is designed to promote and reward (with high rankings) good quality, content filled sites. Whilst penalising and de-indexing the low quality, spammy sites.
The questions Google ask, are ones that you as a website owner needs to ask as well. For example, “Would you trust the information presented in this article?” they also point to the importance of original content, asking, “Does the article provide original content or information, original reporting, original research or original analysis?”
Here is the ultimate question after writing on your website, “Would you expect to see this article in a printed magazine, encyclopedia or book?”
So there you have it. Rather than looking for the latest gimmick, trick or linking system. Just concentrate on content. Good content, original content and lots of it. Post regulalry and with good solid information. Then the links and traffic will come to you.
