    From what I've seen online and my own experience links seem to be the highest ranking factor after you have a quality site in place.

    With that said how much do you think content matters? Do you think it even has that much of an effect? If you have a niche site do you try putting content put every month?

    Personally I try to release an article a month. I think that gives a time frame easy for readers and a quality indicator for g00gle though Im not sure how much of a ranking factor it is.

    Google is a content king,so if you want to index your site in it or getting good rank content is important.
    Because Google will always look for user's easy accessibility in that way content will lead your ranking.
    If you have the niche site you can put relevant content to it and make it up to date.
    So,I think ranking factor mainly depends on contents and some metrics(DA,PA,TF) of your domain.

    I would say content is 30% important, Links are 60% important and remaining 10%.

    I've seen in a local niche a site that is obviously built on the premise that content is king. This site has reams upon reams of content and all kinds of interlinking to inner pages but yet it's outranked by a site with very small number of words on all it's pages. Proof that having the largest number of words on your site isn't going to automatically get you top rank in big G.

    IMO the good content with interconnected niche will rank high in google.
    Content updating regularly is also an important factor.Though content is important,link building is also an fact to increase ranking in G.

    Content is King. Google looks for good content and especially updated content. Try to use unique content.
    Content in your site must be relevant to your niche and keyword.
    Google see three particular aspects of content,
    Quality,
    Relevance and
    Uniqueness.

    As everyone said content plays a main role in ranking your website.
    If you want to rank your site you definitely look after your keywords , domain etc.,
    In that you need to focus on choosing a good quality content too because google also looks for quality content to rank your site.
    And having a good quality content will increase your visitors ,that will helps to increase your site traffic.

    I had tumblr blog (adult niche) and i updated it every day for half year with duplicated content (pics) and it ranked in google for many keyords and i had 1500 uv/ day - pure organic traffic, with zero backlinks!. Updating your site everyday is the main ranking factor for google with unique content is even better.

    People keep spitting the same mantra that content is kind :D well it really depends on your purpose, your goal... If you're trying to rank for hundreds or even thousands of different small comp keywords, then yes content is king, because essentially you won't be doing much seo & linkbuilding.. you just try having a top notch optimized page that can rank on it's own..

    However, if you want to rank for a mid/high comp keyword, then content is definitely not everything... I always say, on-page is 100% of successful SEO, once it's done, it's only about 10% of successful SEO for difficult terms. What I mean is, you won't rank at all if your on-page sucks, so you must ensure that you did it right... Once the site is optimized, on-page alone won't get you far for a mid/high comp keyword, so off-page is really 90% of the seo you'll be doing from that point..

    As a Wikipedia editor I can tell you that Google LOVES content. HOWEVER, quality content is used to build authority over time. If you just post content for the sake of having content on your site because you think it will boost your rankings, then you're wrong... If people are not gonna be interested in your content in months time, don't think that Google will... So content is king only if it's quality enough to build authority and interest from PEOPLE, only then Google will consider it valuable..

    Otherwise look at all the brand sites that rank top for super hard kwds, some even barely have 150-300 words on their page.. That's a perfect example where content is not playing any role whatsoever.. it's about quality off-page seo.

    So again, it's all about the purpose... There is no 'one answer suits everything' in SEO... That's just my two cents.

    I still see people ranking with spun content just fine in medium to highly competitive niches.

    Some of the metrics such as DA, PA, Alexa, CF and TF needs to decide the ranking of a website in SERP page.

    Not only in homepage but also should rank in each page of a site. Then only Page Authority will increase. If it so, the Domain Authority also increased. This cause ranking of your site is good and it shows in the 1st page of SERP.

    Then for a good site, CF and TF ratio should be less which is approximately 1.5. This can also increase the site rank as much as possible. These are the metrics that need to increase the traffic of the site which need to rank in SERP.

    By using quality backlinks, the site may popular at the google SERP page. So try all the things that has to improve the site rank.

    A website's content, even more so than its products, is what attracts visitors. Quality content should be rich in keywords, informative and interesting, so that the visitor feels they've learned something.
    And adding new content to your site is depends on the nature of the site.
