It is already a fact that a good content draws visitors. However, many sites still can’t see the value of a good content and prefer to focus on divers SEO methods, instead of generating high quality content. Many website owners are wrapped up with being “number 1 on Google”, and indifferent to the content of their site. The idea is to have good content that will keep visitors interested and drive traffic to the site.
Surprisingly, a good content will generate traffic; the site will be more relevant for search engines. Recently, “image results” and “video results” are shown by search engines. This means that the images must be labeled, and the video material (uploaded to YouTube) described correctly, and the site will pop up in search engine result faster than expected.
The main information on a site is the content, more useful content a site has, more successful it is; more people will visit it again. This is the reason to add more and more articles, news, and tutorial on a regular basis. Nobody will visit a site, unless they are searching a product and find it using a search engine.
For content which is text based, HubPages are crucial, as well as publishing a lens on Squidoo. Publishing content on these websites means that you are creating new pages and you can link them on your site. The content must be interesting, written not only to have links to your main site, but also to drive traffic and make people click on your site link.
Yahoo and Google have photo sharing sites (Flickr and Picassa Web Albums); it is wise to upload your labeled photos on these community sites.
The trick to create new content is to verify that the content will have appeal to the audience. The content must be original, unique and informative. It must show the writer personality. In the same time, the content must be easy to understand, clear and appealing. It is also very important to have free errors content (check spelling and grammar are a must).
The conclusion is that content is king and always will be.
