    I?ll say that I?m not an expert in SEO. But I know that content has a great role in SEO.

    My question is: Is it true that the content is KING?

    Your ideas, suggestions and tips are highly appreciated.

    Thanks All:)

    Well yes and no. Of course you need some kind of content, but don't make the mistake to think content only is enough. The best content is just wasted, if nobody ever sees it because your page is on site 118 in the serps.

    From a strict SEO perspective, Content will remain King in your SEO pursuit. Post Panda, you would want to develop articles that readers might wanna share/like or bookmark, and that sort of content is what even search engines like.

    Whatever form of marketing you are into, if you need to communicate with your customer, you need intelligent writers to make gullible readers to click on an ad/buy a product etc, and that's where the money lies.

    Informative content gets linked to naturally.

    Continuously produce high quality informative content and your site would become an authority in it's niche.

    Socializing that content would essentially gain you natural links as people often link to high quality informative content.

    Imagine if Obama died which only one guy caught it on camera, that guy then published that video on his brand new site. That brand new site is going to gain links from every news site on the internet. that is viral content at 100% now if you could just produce viral content at just 1% you would still earn natural links and Google would still rank you well.

    Your concern should be to produce content that blows your competitors content out of the water, eventually you would outrank them.

    No content is not king that's complete rubbish, yes you get some hits from freshly written content but back links are the #1 priority without a doubt. do not believe me look at this : add the usual address h t t p w w w to the start of this here google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=&q=search+marketing+consultant&oq=search+marketing+consultant&aq=f&aqi=g2g-v7g-b1&aql=&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=393l4405l0l4805l21l21l0l5l5l0l260l2567l1.12.3l16l0

    then click : danielhalstrom and read the first paragraph and look at the rest of the page.

    You definately need regular fresh content, but i think backlinking is just as important too.

    Quality backlinks with proper anchor text is king. Quality content will help keep your website from getting penalized with the daily algorithm changes Google loves to do.

    It sure is. How are you gonna get backlinks without content?

    Articles are why readers come to your site again and again. Articles are why great websites will want to link to your website. Don't hire $5.00 writers. Hire the best you can afford or write them yourself.

    Google wants and loves quality articles. They tell you that over and over. The wise will listen.

    Content is Definitely King! My partner and I worked feverishly to to write blog posts, keyword rich, on one of ClickBanks most popular product...with hundreds of thousands of competing pages and we managed to get onto page 2 within 2 months. If we did some back-linking we would have reached page 1...

    Thanks buddy...How bout' spin articles? :chicken_w

    I figured it out...but if you have a good content so natural backlinks occur, right? so, you just need a little off page for that, am i right?

    Thanks budz...that was a good thoughts:)

    I have seen some sites that has only 150 words and all ads and links but they are high in search engine. So, my mind twisted and can't clearly state is content is king or not...I have a few knowledge it but I'm not sure...:confused:

    Yeah, reliable backlinking:)

    What is the maximum links you can put inside the content?

    Great, Thanks for that.

    I regularly put fresh content on my site and send to article directories and it works.
    Some time back I was spinning content and adding that to my site but the site did not do well.
    Unless it was me not spinning the content correctly.

    In what context were you spinning content ?

    meaning you were using something to spin the original article OR you actually re-wrote the article your self ?


    I just re-wrote two 400 word articles and I think they sound even better, I added my own humor/personality through out some of it to give it that twist. Went to dictionary.com, then went to synonyms for the big words. I am already on page 1 for a couple of my sites. Hopefully me doing this for them will help out.

    Whats better, to post these re-wrote articles on my site all at once, or seperate them like every other day ?

    OH AND.... Should I also submit these re-wrote articles to directories with a link to my site within? (haven't submitted articles yet still noobtastic over here)

    Just to add to this, high quality content is not something that can be purchased for $10 for 500 words.

    $10 = 1 hour at minimum wage. Great content requires hours of research and hours of preparation.

    You may not like my answer and decide to ignore it, but what i'm saying is how it is.

    How much research and preparation do you think went into this page? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Search_engine_optimization probably 100+ hours. If that was paid content that would be $1000+ just for that page.

    Spun content is a beginners method that makes it easy for Google to detect that you have a low quality site, therefore you will only ever rank for non competitive terms.

    Content is KING in the LONG TERM. All the backlinks may get devaluated one day (of course there will be new one then), but once you invest your time and write a really good content, you made an investment forever.

    Yes definitely it is. The value and results of all your efforts online depends upon several aspects. One of these is content. You can possibly get the attention and interest of your visitors and readers if you have quality content to offer. Whatever goals you may have online, content will help you reap success.
