    Changing my content (Bad for my PR?)


    Once I've submitted my website, is it OK to update or change the content on the site or will this affect my page ranking PR. I want to keep the info on the site fresh and add more info from time to time for my repeat visitors. any comments?

    No, of course


    Changing contents will not affect your PR. Even more, the top PR sites are updated daily or hourly.

    The contents, obviously, determines the search results: if you keep out your article about The man in the moon, i.e., and the googlebots don't find it, a month later you'll never appear more with your article about The man in the moon. Easy and logic.

    change your content


    As noted above, changes of content are regarded well by Googlebot.

    If this were not true Microsoft would have a PR of 0 as would Yahoo and DMOZ.

    Cheers !

    Changing content does help in SEO, but you need to keep updating quality, unique and fresh content after Google rolled out Panda algorithm.

    Bull! Changing content does NOT help at all, unless yours is a news website.

    Update -- as in: add to -- your content as often as you can if you're running a blog.

    But please, do NOT change your old, well-ranking pages. It's an utter myth that that is gonna help. If anything, it will hurt.

    P.S.: why did you feel the need to drag up a thread from 2003 (!) with that???

    if you are going to do it regularly then i don't think its good.. it will still rank but not stable, coz' there is always a new content to crawl and index.

    Yes Sitemap matters, even if you have html menus.

    Sitemaps helps you in informing the search engines about latest updates.

    Moreover it helps in complete and fast crawling of your website.

    Well, its a good thought. It will not affect your PR but will effect your SERP rankings and that too in a positive way.

    Search engines are likely to highlight fresh content on top.

    Update your content and inform the search engines about this. This wil surely improve your keyword rankings.
