What makes a quality site?  That's the question to ask if you want to get noticed by Google.  Google is in the business of 'ending the search.'  They want to serve up exactly what you are looking for the first time you press the search button.  To do that, they have to weed out hundreds of thousands of other sites competing for the same search terms.  To increase your Google page rank, you need a quality site.  So what makes a quality site?  The following article discusses the main concepts.
