How old is the content on your site?
People come to your website for information – about who you are, what you do, or what you can do for them. If your content isn’t clear, easy to read or attention-grabbing, visitors will quickly assume you don’t have what they’re looking for… and leave.
Remember, someone else’s website is just another quick Google search away.
Having original and useful content is also a major factor in how you rank in search engines. In fact, it has never been more important! The goal of a search engine is to provide the best possible answer to a person’s search query, and they do this by delivering sites from all over the web in their list of results that they have deemed to be the best answer to a particular search query.
While search engines use over 200 signals from a website to determine it’s ranking, the content on your site plays a significant role. It’s important to have topically relevant content for search engines, while also ensuring that it’s compelling, unique and valuable to your visitors.
There are many ways of including rich and useful content on your site that is unique in comparison to your competitors and valuable to your customers. These include blogs, widgets, calculators, galleries and video, which if done correctly, can have a positive impact on your site’s rankings.
