I always believe that content is the major factor in SEO. We should always consider that content must contain fresh and unique ideas that whenever users read they could learn something from it. This post serves as a reminder for those who forgets the goal.
Hi Spook, Thnxx for falling on my blog, Yes content is major factor in SEO nowadays. It should be done right way. Marketing of content is veyr important, if you cant market your content then it is waste of time.
Hi jItendra you have nice recipe on content marketing , first time I landed on your blog and was amazed to see how nicely you have pinned important points here. Content in SEO is very important to rank websites.
Nice to be over at your blog too 🙂
I loved the title of the post – Gangnam Style, which I know is a lot of people’s favorite and you weaved this post so well around it 🙂
I completely agree with all that you’ve written. I think if you are able to engage your audience by writing content that they can relate to, SEO or no SEO hardly matters. Yes, a certain amount is needed to land up in the searches, but I’ve written many posts without SEO and they too have made it to Page 1, because the content is what people can relate to I think. And we also see many blog posts on Google that hardly use the targeted keyword, yet they rank. So, overall the SEO scenario is fast changing.
What used to work a few years before, isn’t working now, and we never know about the Google updates and what they will come up with next. What’s really worked for me is the relationships I’ve built with fellow bloggers through the comments, and interaction on the social media, and of course a little of SEO (using variations more I’d say so that it sounds very natural) – and that’s exactly where and how my blog stands today. Yes, it does require lot of hard work and effort, but then who said blogging was easy 😉
Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend 🙂
