    Content is queen, it must attract the king

    Maybe that's a better way to think of it

    According to me:

    If your content is not good, google will trash your site
    If it is not good, visitors will not read your content, which means you will get high bounce rate, which will affect your site.
    Regularly updating contents will helps your site to gain traffic. Basically google will not crawl images, hence you have to concentrate on the articles you post along with your keyword.

    These are some of the basic things which helps you to understand why content is king.

    Content is king because Google works hard to provide the best result. They monitor everything, time on page, click rates, if your visitors stop looking for the keyword once they read your article and so on.

    For example, a nice retention can rank you above sites with many more quality links than you. When your content is the finest of your industry be sure your article will be linked and shared, some people forgot that links come naturally.

    In the opposite, if your content is shit you can spend thousands of $ on quality links and never be the #1.

    Content is King when you start getting visits to your site. You can rank with spun content and invest later in quality one.

    If your article is not well informative, users will get bored and skip the page, so it not good for SEO. Like this there are many factors which comes under content, hence people say content is king.

    Content is one of the most important things about blogging, but there is a lot of factors as well.

    "Content Is King" does dot necessarily means it has to be 'bigger' than your competitors. However your content should well informative so readers could be well informed on the subject and also it should be well optimized so Google could serve to people looking for such queries

    Here is why they say content is king.

    Google only cares about answering the users query the first time every time. Google will crawl your content and trying to gauge what your page is trying to explain. The longer the content, the better Google will feel it matches a particular search, based upon the keywords contained in the content. But this is only a part of how content helps you rank.

    Google will test your content by moving you up the SERP to see how users respond. When this happens, we call it the "Goole Dance.", the same thing happens when you add backlinks. Your page will move up and down in the SERP at random for a while. When you are up in the SERP, Google is checking to see if your page is getting click-through and if users pogo stick on your site. Pogo sticking is when a user goes onto the page and then back to the SERP to click on another page in a short time. Here is where content becomes "King." Your content has to hold the user for as long as possible and answer their question. You do not want the user going back to the SERP and continue looking for an answer. To keep the user on the page and answer their attention content such as pictures, infographics, and video is essential.

    If your content is not engaging and does not answer the searcher's question, you will be moved down in the SERP. While the length of content helps Google understand your page, in the end, it is about how the users interact with the content that will determine your final position in the SERP.

    Content is indeed king is it's really great content.. just because you pay 8 per 100 words doesn't mean u can get great content... so it's subjective, I've seen content 30 USD per 100 words and what a utter trash.

    This is a great analogy. The best content in the world won't do much if there's no power to push it into the top 10.

    People visit a site for one of several reasons. If your content doesn't fulfill the reasons, you will not get anywhere. Therefore, content is King.

    The reasons: Answer a question, fulfill a need.
    Do one or the other and do it well to get anywhere. Don't be shy to alter your content if apparently you are filling one of these two in an unexpected way. Content may be king, but without people/visitors a king can't rule anything.

    This!

    But it's better if you use quality content from the start.
