The only way in which you can build a successful website in 2017 is by manipulating the system…… just having good content doesn't work.
Google is absolutely useless at figuring out quality content you simply cant rely on its algorithm to figure out that what you have should be rewarded, the very thing they dont want you todo is the very thing you have todo in order to make it worth your while.
Ive lost all hope in googles ability to rank sites according to the standards that they set for everyone it simply doesn't work
