Content marketing can mean different things to different people but we believe it means creating engaging content that people will remember and associate with your brand.
There's a phrased banded about in the world of organic internet marketing; content is king!
It's a common phrase because content is something Google puts a lot of emphasis on. The Google Quality Rater Guidelines is a very long document that lists what Google looks for in content and how it defines good quality. The table below shows some of the more important parts.
|Search quality rater guidelines: Summary
|Extra care is needed on pages that directly impact someone's finances or their life, i.e.: insurance, legal and commerce.
|EAT - Expertise, Authoritative, Trustworthy
|All content must have EAT value; adding unique data you own is a great way to prove validity.
|Know & know simple queries
|Answer common questions as quickly and simply as possible, additional content is just backup.
|Dated and updated
|Google needs to see content is fresh and kept up to date.
|Google needs to see you're doing more than just hosting content.
|And the rest
