How Often Should Your Home Page Be Updated?

gravity asked 1 year ago
How often is too often? I guess this is where my SEO inexperience is getting the best of me. If I update my home page with different content once a week how will that affect my rankings for certain keyword phrases if content is changing so often. I noticed this morning that I had a page 1 listing on google for a keyword phrase that I did’nt target but last night I updated the home page and removed that content. Now that I know I have a page 1 listing do I add that content back to my index page? I doubt that it is a phrase that is often search(cant think of the tool that tells me how many searchs a keyword had..overture??) Anyway, I hope this post makes sense.

There is a recent thread some place else here about this.

People are totally disagreeing on it, so your guess is as good as any.

I change mine a lot, almost daily, and I do well.

Others who also do well say that one should never touch it once it ranks well.

So, take your pick. :hehe:

Some webmasters think that dramatic changes in titles, keyword density or in the amount of words may be interpreted as an attempt to manipulate results by doing over optimization.
In my case I make changes often but trying to keep the above similar.

Sections of my homepage change near daily and i’m always adding new articles to my site.

Maybe google has gotten smart enough to check whether changes in title/keywords etc go hand in hand with actual content changes or not.

I change whatever I want depending on what goes on with the site, but I rarely just tweak optimisation. It only gets tweaked when I also make content changes.
