    If a website has little to no home page content, can it still rank well? Do you just have to have good content on inner pages, and it will build home page rankings as well?

    I'm interested in buying a wordpress template, and my question is pointed to the full screen style slideshows that don't contain any text on the home pages for photography niche.

    No content?? It is impossible to rank without the content.

    But...

    If you see that a site with the little content got ranked, maybe it has links from authority sites.

    I have seen several rank for medium gambling keywords with practically no content and just banners on the homepage, and these have ranked in the top three for nearly three years. So yes.

    Or in other words SERPs by Google are both arbitrary and somewhat capricious.

    Actually they all have one thing in common, and that is that they all have an embed of the game they relate to, which people can play in free play mode. The game embed has a serious impact on the time people spend on the page.

    I have also noticed with my own churn and burn pages, pages with game embeds last far longer that pages without embeds.

    Without content it is harder..

    Home page content is main factor to increase ranking and easier one.. (Content Should Be High Quality )
