Why Content is so Important
Since Google updated its algorithm in 2011, it has become increasingly important to focus on quality content. What does quality look like? Is Google the grammar police?
While we believe what you post on your blog and website should be well-written so that it reflects your level of professionalism, Google isn’t looking at how you spell so much as how you stuff.
In other words, where sites used to be able to get away with writing low-quality posts that were basically search strings put together to make somewhat questionable and difficult-to-read sentences, it’s now more important to provide value with everything you publish. The good news is that what you write doesn’t have to be long; in fact, with more people reading on mobile devices, shorter updates work better than larger ones. But everything you write should give the reader information they find interesting, entertaining or informative.
It Won’t Happen Overnight, but it Will Happen
