WHAT IS HIGH-QUALITY CONTENT?
If you are a blogger, you always hear everyone recommend you publishing high-quality content. They also say things like content is king and many other similar sayings. Now, it is clear that content is king. Without high-quality content, your blog will never succeed. Even if you build millions of powerful backlinks, your blog will never achieve any significant results without good content. Great content is crucial for the success of your blog. Ok, we made a conclusion that content is the most important factor responsible for our blogging development. But what does high-quality content mean? What are the qualities of high-quality content? How can we identify whether current content is of a high or a low quality? What should we do in order to generate high-quality content? What are the rules must be considered while generating content? In this post, all of these questions will be answered and explained. Today, I will give you the most effective guidelines to produce high-quality content.
1) HIGH-QUALITY CONTENT MUST BE ORIGINAL
Sometimes, writing and editing your posts might seem to be very time-consuming and difficult. In this situation, beginning and amateur bloggers start thinking about stealing someone’s ready materials and pasting them on their own blogs. Have you ever had this idea? I am sure you were thinking about it when you were not aware of the possible consequences these activities can lead to.
First of all, you must publish only original content. Only 100% authentic content might be classified as high-quality content. Stolen content will not add any value to your blog. Here are some of the reasons why content theft may ruin your blog:
a) SEARCH ENGINES MAY PENALIZE YOUR BLOG
If you regularly steal ready content from other blogs, one day, you might get penalized by Google and other search engines. What I definitely know is that Google hates types of blogs that do not produce original content. Google’s work is not fully automated. A too big amount of stolen content on your blog may look very suspicious for search engines. As I have told you, Google is not fully automated. As Matt Cutts said, specialists from Google manually scrutinize some websites that look unnatural. If you underestimate the importance of copyright laws, one day, search engines may penalize your blog by suspension from their indexes. Thus, your web resource will never appear in search engines.
b) BLOGS WITH STOLEN CONTENT HAVE THE WORST POSITIONS IN SERPs
This is absolutely correct. First, Google pays foremost attention at the quality of content a blog produces. This is the most significant factor every search engine uses in its system. For this reasons, high-quality content is more important than high-quality backlinks. A blog with backlinks will never be ranked without high-quality content. This is the rule you should memorize very well. If I publish five new blog posts today, I will immediately submit a sitemap to the world’s biggest search engines. Hence, my new content will be indexed as soon as possible. Even if someone copies my articles, and then, will paste them on their blogs, these stolen posts will never help them to rank in Google and other search engines. Since these posts were indexed firstly on my blog, search engines will attribute the ownership to me. Therefore, digital thieves will never benefit by stealing ready materials.
Finally, high-quality content is a 100% original content. If you want to have high-quality content on your blog, you must produce with the help of your intellect, imagination, and creativity. If you do not have these qualities, but at the same time you want to generate some high-quality content, you may hire some professional bloggers and writers who will provide you with good materials.
2) HIGH-QUALITY CONTENT IS ALWAYS MEANINGFUL AND HELPFUL
You should not write your posts simply to publish something on your blog. For some bloggers, it does not really matter much what to publish on their blogs. Your posts should be either entertaining or problem solving. The articles you publish on your blog must give very good, practical, and helpful information to your readers. Only this type of content might be classified as good content. High-quality content always gives practical solutions to the most difficult problems.
3) HIGH-QUALITY CONTENT IS ALWAYS A WELL EDITED CONTENT
Posts with loads of grammar and spelling mistakes cannot be classified as high-quality content. A well-written article is always professionally edited. Inserting high-quality photos, graphics, and stats is an additional way to make your posts.
High-quality content is important for all spheres of your blogging activity. Publishing high-quality content on your blog will improve SEO of your blog, attract more readers, reduce bounce rate on your website.
