Content vs. Keywords: How Content Quality Beat Keywords in Ruling SEO
Keywords used to dominate the SEO or search engine optimisation landscape. It used to be that most optimisation tasks revolved around deciding what keywords to use and how to best incorporate them on page and off page. SEO practitioners would then create content by inserting a few choice keywords, particularly in the more noticeable locations such as the header and title tag. Some even went so far as to stuff content with keywords in an attempt to trick search engines for a temporary improve in search rankings. These days, however, industry experts declare that when it comes to SEO, content is king. Search engines have since started weeding out overly optimised content and dubious link builds to deliver better results to users. The idea is rather simple: great content deserves to be rewarded for earning quality shares and inbound links.
