What Makes Original Content So Important?

It seems like every few months the world of SEO panics as people try to decipher what changes Google has made to their algorithm. While sudden changes can be scary, the fact is, as long as you maintain a content-based strategy, most of these changes tend to actually help, rather than hurt. What makes original content so important?

Content and SEO

Google’s goal is to direct users to the most relevant websites. A focus on user experience also means ensuring the content is original and helpful. So, Google looks for websites with original copy, or regular additions of new content or recent updates. They look for sites that are mobile-friendly, but also have an active social media presence and positive reviews. With well-written and information copy, then Google is more likely to direct people to you and as a result, you’re more likely to enjoy an active social media presence and obtain reviews.

Keeping It Original

For your web pages, you should have original copy that is well-written and error free. Your blog should be the same, but also updated regularly. Each time you add a page or a blog post, Google crawls and indexes the information, which helps SEO. Using templated content or copying passages can end up hurting your SEO.
