Welcome to Day 26!
Diving into “Content is King”
Having a good grasp of using the page editor (editing copy and adding or changing photos) will be key to creating unique content. Unique content can come in many ways, but today let’s focus on revamping some of what you may already have (Content Pro or Advanced Marketer) or creating something new.
Importance of unique content and what to keep in mind as you’re writing it.
Unique content is important for this begins to separate you from the crowd and serves as a space to connect with your audience to show your expertise and create added value.
From Google’s perspective, it loves content as a way to help build trust that you are an expert and a way to prove why your website is a great match for specific keywords. This is your way to have your voice and brand come to life.

Why Is Duplicate Content Bad
Having duplicate content (same articles and images as everyone else) doesn’t help SEO growth. Google won’t penalize the site for duplicate content, but it also won’t be rewarded if it’s trying to rank websites that all look the same. The one that stands out a bit more uniquely will be ranked higher.

Open up a separate document and rewrite each paragraph in your own words. Add stuff you think is necessary, remove stuff you think is too much, and in the end, make it your own.
