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?
If you are able to edit your home page, you can do this manually. 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.
