    Nope, I cannot BELIVE it...!!!

    Still Quality content is helping a lot. Even search engines recommend quality content. So, it is backbone. It is always an important factor on search engine ranking system (I guess it from my experience).

    I have proof that, We got top results on SEO with well written (more than 1000 words) with less effort on link building.....!!!

    I saw the video too. It's pretty crazy. Like he said though, it would only work with low-moderate competition keywords. Plus, you'll need some pretty powerful (expensive) backlinks. It's eye-opening though.

    Nobody ever ranked a page from quality content, so how could it be dead? Quality content & keyword placement aren't the same things.

    I didn't watch the video.

    I've been saying this forever, but people still don't get it. "Quality" is just one of those imaginary metrics that people tend to get too wrapped up in. Glad to see Becker pull out some good examples.

    I don't believe it. I've worked on a lot of blogs and forums for onsite SEO and offsite SEO. I have noticed that blogs that are optimized well with great and unique content have the better results than the blogs that don't have unique high quality contents and concentrated on offsite seo only.

    If barebones sites are ranking so well, why aren't the serps full of them?

    I've got loads of domains and in some cases the bare bones sites are ranking but this is more like 1% rather than the rule. I think its a fluke when it happens.

    Listing 2 or 3 well ranking bare bones sites in a video doesn't mean quality content doesn't help a site rank.

    "Quality" content is make believe. On page SEO has very little, if anything, to do with "quality" content the way it is normally defined. What does matter is having content that your visitor is interested in, which will eventually help with rankings since it will decrease your bounce rate. But you can easily get a page ranked if you choose your keywords wisely, get the right backlinks, and comply with basic on page seo principles.
