    What do you guys think is more important Content or Backlinks. If you had to pick one and why. You are not allowed to say both :-D

    I've always felt like the more text content you have, the more random Google searches will lead to your site.

    For local searches, I find I can usually get sites to the top/close to the top of Google just with content and coding.

    If your competitors have got tonnes of powerful backlinks, however, then you too need them to compete.

    Mind you, I believe that the content should be right before starting offpage seo - if someone searces for "web designer County A" they want to see a site that is about web design in that county; they don't want to be directed to a web design company in a different country just because of backlink anchor text.

    the correct choice is content, but without backlinks, whos going to see it unless you find some unique content that no-one else has ever written about. So for actual seo purposes I will say backlinks

    My vote is for content only. If you put rich content in site after google crawling the traffic will come to site. If you update the site with rich content regularly then you will get regular visits.

    Both the aspect regarding seo is importanat ,each aspect of seo has there own importance.I to prioritized the content part as all Knows " Content is king.!! " viewers need quality content to solve there problems .For the back links part we have to be very specific as to rank in a search engine the factors of back link consider very importantly.

    as search engine can't argue about content I think keyword density is the only way to let it know about pages, plus quality links are still very important.

    Good on page optimization for long-tail keywords can get you on page 1 for that keyword. For more competitive keywords you will need backlinks.
