So what do you think?
Do you want to search on google and find the first website that has the wrong information on the search term? Do you think you will carry on using google to search if you keep getting the wrong answers?
We are not talking technical terms here but simple logic. Search Engines succeed by providing the closest answer to our searches. Therefore in order to do well for the search for our website, we need to provide the search engine with good quality content so that the search engines can serve our site up as a good answer to the searcher. It is a win-win-win situation!
Yes, we need content, good and relevant content and just keep it coming!
