So how do I go about continuously adding new content to my website?
There are many easy ways to add great quality content to your site, even on a daily basis. Here are just a few that work very well for me:
1 - Write articles. Simply do a Google search on topics related to your website's theme, read information you find, then write an article about what you have read. DO NOT copy another site's articles without owner's express permission. Doing so is "copyright infringement", and it will cause you more trouble than you can even imagine! Simple 4-step process: Search > Read > Understand > Write!
2 - Hire others to write articles for you if you don't have time, ability or desire to write them yourself. College students are often more than capable and willing to write great articles for $10 - $15 a pop. Check with your local community college or post an ad in classified section of your local newspaper.
3 - Solicit article submissions from other webmasters in exchange for a link back to their sites. Reprinting interesting articles is a tradition in publishing industry, and if you do it right way it can work for you too. The key is avoiding a duplicate content penalty from search engines by having a significant amount of other text on page in addition to article text. Navigation links, header and footer information, etc. all help make a page different from others on web.
4 - Visit many "Free Content" websites that are easily found on Internet. There are literally thousands of great articles already written that are free for taking in exchange for a simple link back to author's website (usually in a 4 or 5 line "resource box" tacked on to end of article). Simply do a Google search for "free content".
Important: Observe "no junk" rule stated above. You want your website to be seen as an asset to web, not an eyesore. Besides, it does no good whatsoever to get visitors to your site just to have them hit Back button once they see page!
