Or you could create your own content. One of the best tools out there to do that is Cavna. There are both a free and paid version with more features.
Search engines depend on meta tags for your page
Meta tags should be employed on each web page. Meta tags should list all your primary keywords to help search engines find each individual page which will also help improve page rank. For example, if your primary keywords are technology, computers, modems and routers, these keywords should be listed as meta tags on every page of your website. In addition, each page should offer at least two secondary keywords, such as Internet and PCs.
Spell check is your friend to rank your page
All content that is shown on your website should be written with no grammatical errors or spelling mistakes. Not only do spelling mistakes cause readers to wonder if the information is worthwhile, it also can cause your page rank to drop if web crawlers notice a lot of spelling errors.
Don’t go rouge with your web platform
