In SEO, web content has always been one of the most important factor in making websites noticeable. And I believe, this will remain important for many, many more years. Web content is what makes people find a website. The information they have is what makes them land there.
When we put a specific keyword or phrase like for example “best cup cake recipes”, the search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing will use their algorithm to scan the net for websites that are relevant to the keyword or phrases the person has used. More specifically, they would look for sites that contain these keywords or phrases, this would include the links, meta tags and other things related to SEO. The more relevant the website is, the higher would be its ranking.
Because most internet users would never search past the first two pages of search engine results for their queries, it is then very important to make a quality content for SEO.
