How important is the frequency of updates on a blog?

Some people are under the impression that blogs are good for SEO only if they’re updated frequently. How much does frequency play into PageRank for blogs & other dynamic sites? Isn’t the content more important than the simple # of posts per day/week? Land Lubber, Colorado

    So it is really that important to update a blog. It is worth having sometime listening to what Google masters has to say about a particular topic.

    i personally think nofollow should be used on any links and Google should be able to find out what links to follow and credit and which one? not to.

    So why does Google return 50 blog posts repeating the same rubbish PR release about the iPhone4 then? Seems quantity often beats quality.

    nice point that matt is getting across… but i would answer the question by saying, update index pages regularly so that search engines find ur new pages quicker, and maintain old content without too much editing on article pages so that google knows what it’s likely to be sending people to see :)

    MAtt. You say that content is king. I have unique quality content, and was getting 100 visitors a day from google. I moved the site from a dedicated host to a shared host…. the same site, same content you claim is king, the traffic I was getting from google dropped to 5 … I am about to abandon the blog (it is about actionscript tutorials)
