Search engines such as Google and Bing make sure to provide the best results for a user’s search intent to optimise the user’s experience when searching online. Adhering to search engine ranking factors will mean that you’re likely to have a higher domain authority score and this will make you a more trustworthy content source.

To come up with new content ideas you need to enter the subject related to which you need to generate content on.
