    If no one visits a site because of crappy content, sooner or later the rank will collapse.

    Yes and no. Some sites rank high yet they have below average content. Why? Because it's all done by AI that takes into account some 200+ factors before filing and then fetching a site. That's why it's laughable to me when some claim that all you need is backlinks (or good content or perfect html or...) to rank high. It takes all of it and then some.

    I understand that many people consider the ranking of their sites to be the most important activity to spend time on - and it is very important when it comes to attracting organic traffic.

    I don't particularly get concerned with ranking myself though.

    The main thing I think about when I publish content is whether the content provides value to my visitors. I know that if they get little or nothing positive/productive from what I offer they won't be back any time soon and I want them coming back soon and often.

    If I don't give them high-quality content I'll likely never see them again. So, yes, I think quality of content is very important. Just not necessarily for the purpose of ranking.

    Content is powerful in the manner of ranking, stability, visitors, branding and more. If you have a great business idea but not the right content then it will harm.

    Its just not a yes or no question. What kinds of content are you asking about? If you are speaking directly about the quality of writing, search engines don't really have the ability to judge that - unless its very poor.

    If the quality content was used in proper approach to the target audience, we can say that information is really important because it reach the right users and benefits them in many ways.

    It depends on your website's goals. The quality of content doesn't matter if you're just trying to generate traffic and you don't care about user experience, leads, or sales. If you do care about those things, then you will want to have high-quality content.

    What reason is there to generate traffic if you don't care about user experience, leads, or sales?
