Your site content subject should be broad enough to reach a general population of the Internet community. Your content should be more than this is me and my family photos or my hobby. While we are sure that you have a beautiful and interesting grouping of photos, we must learn something from them. For example: if you have content regarding your hobby of stamp collecting. Teach us about the hobby; assist us to become more informed about the art of stamp collecting. Perhaps teaching us about what is a rare find and what is more common. We would find this far more valuable information than simply showing me your stamp collection.
We find sites that submit content that is merely a collection of links from other sites do not leave a lasting impression.
