    People are always saying update your content often. What happens if your website is not a site designed round content and vary rarely needs updating? I would like a view on this.

    I would add a blog section. Freshness is a part of the algo and it seems to be getting more and more important. That doesnt mean a site with static content will not rank, it just may be harder.

    Google loves sites that are updated regularly. By content not only means articles but anything your site is about be it images,videos etc.

    Thanks

    Hi djshades2004, this is really a great question!

    When looking at ways to help build content in a "boring" niche or industry, or any niche for that matter, you can follow these steps as found on seomoz, written by Stephanie Chang.

    Step 1: Asking the Right Questions (Learning About the Industry)
    Step 2: Compiling the Data (Analysis of the Industry)
    Step 3: Defining the Target Audiences and Identifying Project Goals
    Step 4: Prospecting Influencers / Determining Shareability
    Step 5: Creating the Content
    Step 6: Analyzing the Results

    The reason I like this article is because it gives hope to those industries that are hopeless, defines the importance of market research in your content strategy, directs you with clear steps to move ahead and is obviously applicable for any site out there!

    Let me know if this was a helpful article to share!

    I second this wholeheartedly, adding some kind of content, as long as it's unique and relevant to the site will help more than doing nothing at all.
