Searchengines are not that stupid -- and content is still king
|They say "content is king". Is it true?
If you're fairly experienced with websites, search
engines and traffic in general, you might have
heard this before. If you're really into internet
marketing, you've heard this time and again.
And I will wholly and totally confirm it: Content
Stop using gimmicks and META tags and
sneaky tricks that "guarantee" traffic explosions
and nuclear hazards. Stop stealing other people's
content, either through XML, RSS, or whatever
XHDHTML you might think of. Duplicate and junk
content is OUT. Quality, timely, visitor-oriented
content is IN. Big time! Read on to find out more.
High-value, focused content keeps the Internet
world spinning properly on its axis. It's the
fundamental behavior that keeps EVERYONE happy.
FACT: Search Engines are not that stupid.
Many people, books, websites and articles will
tell you about how searchengine go for "tags",
"keyword density", "keyword-rich domains", so on
and so forth. When I was running my first web
sites, back in 1998, you could fool them with meta
tags. A year after, meta tags were in total
decline, and, shortly after, they were practically
dead. Then came Google with its revolutionary
system. And along came the SEO guys, spreading
their wisdom: "Put the keywords in the title, in
the first paragraph, in H1, H2 and H15 and you're
done". Try to do that today for a top keyword and
see if you succeed.
Is my website's domain name,
Yes, it is.
Is this of any use?
I didn't get high search engine rankings explosive
SEO results because of it.
The bottom line is: things are evolving. Things
are not static and neither are the search engines.
They learn how to deal with tricks and no gimmick
is gonna work on the long run.
ANOTHER FACT: Search Engines detect 'duplicate
Therefore, you're not that smart if you just copy
and paste a bunch of words, or if you 'suck' them
through XML or RSS.
ANOTHER FACT: Searchengines love content, and so
The internet is all about content. You already
knew that, right?
ANOTHER FACT: Quality matters
You already knew that as well. But I just feel
many people still need a confirmation. Through the
quality of the content you provide you gain
credibility, respect, popularity AND high
conversion rates and sales.
