Here is some info on frogs:
Frogs are green
Frogs live in water
frogs like to jump
Frogs are not toads
Thanks for reading my article about frogs
Frogs are interesting creatures partly because they are green.
Many people do not realise they are not toads.
Frogs like to jump and live in water.
The posts do not look identical to normal visitors but Google is not human and quickly spots that the content of both posts is identical. It's one of those things Google does not like to talk about (and Matt Cutts has only hinted at) but tests done by serious SEO gurus have proved they are quite adapt at text analysis. It's not just them looking at (and counting) the keywords but identifying nouns & verbs to build structure then deduce context. Simply running the text through a thesaurus or swapping text around using grammatical padding is not enough to fool them.
That's right folks all that stuff your English teacher bored you to death with at school about sentence analysis Syntax, Grammar, verbs, adverbs, nouns, pro-nouns, adjectives is suddenly important again.
@Sogo7 ; You know what? We're not talking about Google here, we're discussing writing good content for human visitors. Please take the time to read the announcement at the top of this page as well as the Guidelines, stickied (IMPORTANT at the top of this forum before you continue posting here. Any further posts about SEO in this thread will be deleted.
Moreover, what you posted unless it's your own work from two different sites is plagiarism and that's something we don't recommend here in any way, shape or form.
What Is Good content?...
Forums for instance survive by having huge amounts of what are generally regarded as low quality,
repetitive posts that often contain information duplicated elsewhere across the web.
With a blog the quality and quantity of articles are not the issue. It is the subject being written about, the insights the writer provides and what it means to the humans who read it that determines popularity. Does the content speak to the desires of the reader, perhaps stir an emotional response or take a standpoint that some would consider controversial. These are things that make for 'Good Content' from a human perspective.
Desire - My 10 steps to Success, How I made money online, Secrets to seduce men/women, Forum moderation for beginners
Emotive - Should unwanted kittens be suffocated or drowned? , Celebrity gossip, Do I need to see a doctor about this?
Controversial - UFOs, conspiracy theories, corruption, abuses of power, politics, crime & punishment
Of course some topics like religion or race hate, the death penalty and the 9-11 mystery to give just a few examples push more than one button in the readers brain and have some appeal regardless of age, nationality or religion. So it is demonstrably possible to have a large amount of visitor interest generated from relatively few low quality articles that have been rapidly assembled from various sources.
Something else to consider is that an article capable of engaging the reader need not be a long article. So long as you include who, what, where, when, how, and why the reader will find it informative. Keeping the word count down also speeds up the flow of that information to the readers brain holding their attention, so they don't get bored and wander off making them more likely to read another blog entry. The example below is a general News type article and demonstrates how a story can grab a readers attention and still push those psychological buttons in less than 200 words.
Old farts, movie buffs and writers may already know this mock news story. It was written by Fay & Michael Kanin for the movie "Teacher's Pet" in 1958 starring Clark Gable & Doris Day. Though it could of been written yesterday, such is the society we chose to create.Quote:
That's an odd interpenetration of 'Fair Dealings' or 'Fair use' legislation, but your site , your rules so will abide.
As I cannot verify that the site containing the screenplay has the required copyright permissions then shall
not post a link to protect this forum from being accused of aiding copyright infringement or piracy.
Sorry folks you will just have to Google hard for it or wait till I publish the tutorial
why not hire a freelancer, they can write quality article depends on your choosen keywords, just pick the one that can be trusted and honest.
It's a shame that our members "just hae to Google hard for it". I found it in a link in CopyScape although it was translated from, I believe Japanese.
Individual results for a given rubric will vary due to a growing trend of search engines returning tailored results based upon a users profile.
My Japanese being a little rusty I refreshed my recollection from one of the many Movie Transcript sites written in English.
Originality, relevance and quality of the article all work in making your blog well-liked by your audience. The more people who follow your blog, the greater the chance of getting it "seen" by search engines. :)
