Do you believe content is king?

No matter how much website information is out there, there are still people who randomly create sites which look pretty but do nothing or even worse, have valuable information but look so bad or are so slow to load that no-one ever sees them. Years ago, when the Internet started to catch on, people liked the "cool" sites and the "awesome" graphics and were prepared to wait for them. They didn't care that the content was slim, they were just thrilled to be looking at pretty sites. As the Internet evolved, so too did its surfers.

These days surfers want information and they want it quickly. They are done with "pretty" sites and want the useful ones instead. For example, if you are cat lover and had two sites to choose from - one had lots of cute pictures of cats, the other just one picture but a lot of information about how to care for cats, the food they prefer, the different breeds etc - which one would you go back to? You would probably look at the graphic rich site first, just out of curiosity and immediately forget about it afterwards, but you would then continue to go back to the site which has all the information about cats regardless of the fact that it doesn't have a lot of pictures!
