The success of your content website depends on how much traffic you can attract to your site. Your website search engine rank for your keywords will dictate your success or failure. If you are “above the fold" on the first search engine results page for your keywords, you will probably succeed. If you are not “above the fold" on the first page of the search engine results, you are invisible and will probably fail.
If you are not experienced in search engine optimization and you do not know all the steps that it takes to make your site rank high on the search engines, you need the best web host that will guide you through the process and provide the necessary assistance to make your site appear on the first page of the search engines.
