This post is a part of a series of posts that informs you as to how Google defines quality in respect to web pages.
Google defines a category of webpages they call “Your Money or Your Life”.
These are webpages that could potentially impact the future happiness, health or wealth of visitors.
These are webpages that have positive (or potentially negative) impact on the lives of the visitors, due to the types of topics these pages discuss.
If your website contains any of these pages, they will be held to an especially high quality standard, due to their potential impact on your visitors.
If this is the case and you want your website to rank well in Google, you must be especially thoughtful of the quality of the information you publish.
