Q: I have a website hosting company but cannot have a “news feed” on my home page. So, should I set up a news page & update it on regular basis? What would you suggest? Will that be counted as an effective SEO, even if not on the home page?

A: One important thing you need to know is that news & fresh content will help your home page, only if they are visible in the View Source. If it is an iFRAME or a Javascript call, it is giving the least contribution to the home page. In case you indicate a news feed, only the actual text on the home page, which is visible in view source will have real relevance.

All you need to do is designate a time every month to log in and update the HTML code of the home page. Have at least three press releases/blogs/ or news items updated. This way, you are sending Google a signal that your site is updated.

In case, you cannot do all this, having a blog or new content will still help. Building inbound links to the content, building other links, or distributing press releases will train Google to index your website.
