    If Content is King, then surely Relevance is Queen!
    by Jason Hulott

    There has been a lot of to-ing and fro-ing in the search engine world of late and there are lots of conspiracy theories as to why these things happen.

    It is easy as a webmaster to get caught up in these webs of intrigue.

    You get email notes about them, you view so-called experts' thoughts on bulletin Boards - hey you probably even read things in newsletter articles!

    Well I hope so anyway....

    The big driver for webmasters currently appears to be content and link building.

    While link building is important I don't believe it makes Queen. Maybe a Prince. Content and links DO go hand in hand but, without relevance, the Kingdom is doomed. Sorry I
    will stop the analogy now! :-)

    If your site is about finance, then finance content is best supported by finance link exchanges. Relevance!

    If your site is about finance, then finance content supported by casino link exchanges from a PR8 site while in the short term may help,…but all the signs are saying this
    is not a long term strategy.

    Okay,so what is the best strategy?

    Keep EVERYTHING relevant. It is that simple.

    Make sure that you only swap or link to sites that are relevant to the content on your pages. Yes I am suggesting link exchanging on pages of your site not a links page.

    Links pages seem to be being abused. There are rumours that pages called links, resources or partners are not passing page rank. You could be wasting your time building links that are not giving you any benefits!

    Delivering relevant links from relevant content is the future.

    Look at sites such as www.bbc.co.uk or www.independent.co.uk. News sites have the right idea. They have 2 or 3 relevant internal links to other articles on the same topic or links to internal tools that are related. These usually can be found at the right hand
    side of the article.

    They also then have weblinks or external links to sites of interest that are related to the topic. These are relevant!

    Another benefit of this is that with a content rich site you can add hundreds of links quite legitimately and really add some value both to your Rankings and your users.

    With a content-poor site it is difficult, you have to add link pages or create a links directory. A five page site will need to add 10 or 12 good link pages to compete and
    even then with algorithm changes, this may not be prudent.

    Having a site with 400 pages means you can easily add 3 links per page, so you have 1200 link options straight away.

    Hopefully this explains that relevance runs a close second to content.

    Always bear in mind when writing content that relevant links will not only boost your search engine rankings, but you will also add a service to your visitors.
