Update – Feed Google Fresh Relevant Content

Back in 2013, I wrote this post about adding fresh relevant content to your website for Google. Today, three years later, the same holds true! Google likes good, relevant content!

Search engine optimization (SEO) has changed over the years. Once upon a time, it was smart to add zip codes…  now frowned upon, once it was smart to get links from anywhere, no longer is this a good option. What has held true and will keep holding true is Good Content. Even though your new website will need time to grow and become trusted by Google adding good relevant content will help create this trust. Think of Google as a person… they want to give their customers (people who Google search) the best answer from someone Google trusts. If Google knows your website has been giving great content, great answers, then Google will feel good sending people your way.  So start adding great content, content that people are looking for, searching for, and simply want. This can be done via written content, images, or videos. If you get asked a certain question on a weekly basis then answering this question clearly and easily on your website would be good content.
• Written Content
• Image Content
• Video Content
• Testimonials
Adding written content, optimized images, videos, and testimonials are all great ways to get your site ranked higher without spending money.
