Changing a ranking article, help?

Hi guys. First of all, I'm new to this forum, and I'd just like to say that Affilorama is the greatest of all when it comes to teaching affiliate marketing :) Cheers!

I have an article ranking first in Google, but I need to change it a little bit. I'm talking about changing maybe a sentence and a link. Would this possibly affect my ranking? Is it dependent on the article directory?

Hoping for a kind answer! Thanks in advance ;)

I seriously doubt changing a sentence and a link would change your ranking.

If it's going to make your content better, then by all means, change it :)

As long as you're not altering the keyword phrase, I see no reason why changing a link and a sentence would hurt your rankings.

Thanks for the feedback skela3! I appreciate it. :)

No, this small change will not affect your current ranking. Changing your target keyword in the article will have much more weight to your webpage's rank than any other tweaks.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

If it is just a minor edit, then changing it is just okay. But make sure that you change it to make the content better as Google wants fresh and quality content.
