    What is more important for search engines content or the links that come to your website?

    What would be a percentage of the importance of these two factors, that everybody is talking about.

    The weighting between the two factors varies from search engine to search engine, and even varies on the same search engine over time.

    These things are sometimes known as "on page" and "off page" factors - content is the single most important "on page" factor, anchor text (the bit between the <A></A> tags) is possibly the most important "off page" factor. They're not strictly comparable though as it varies as I said.

    Roughly.. very roughly.. they are broadly of similar importance. Really you should try to get both.

    I'd say 90% links 10% content.
    But this 90% includes internal linking - so optimisation is still important.

    I'd agree with the internal linking--that is a big factor for page rank w/google. Not that PR means much anymore.

    PR is useful if you sell/trade links with newbees They tend to look ONLY on PR.
