Writing content and copyediting is two different things hence if you are not good content writer try to get it written by expert. Also make sure to update your content more frequently to make active the search engine and attract more traffic.

Yes content is important, as the website will be getting higher pagerank on the basis of the content. The search engine crawls to your website, it also goes through your content and decides the page rank. The more content and the proper use of keyword is good for achiveing higher pagerank.

I'd say the 'mass content' vs 'tons of updates' vs 'key word linking' really varies depending on the type of site you're running - service provider, blogger, etc. Word of mouth and inherently more inbound links are going to be the biggest factor.

"...optimization is all in the writing. To optimize a website, you first need to take a good look at the HTML meta tags of Title, Description and Keywords. They are words. And all of these words require researching and embellishing. Home page banner- more words. These words, unlike those used in the meta tags above, are written for both search engine and potential human customer alike.
Search engines love words.
Given all of this, it is pretty clear that all you need in order to properly optimize a website is a lexicon of well thought out words – keywords and keyphrases - sprinkled like generous confetti throughout the meta tags and the body copy. Well, almost.
In the first place, those words must be relevant. They must state clearly what it is you are selling and where you are selling it. The general marketing principle is:
(a) product description,
(b) product benefits,
(c) region of operation..."
