    Googlebot will recognize during it’s crawls how often you update your content and adjust it’s crawl rate if you are adding fresh content frequently.

    You can also let Googlebot know how often to crawl and which pages are important by setting up a ‘sitemap’.

    Yes, Google loves fresh content.
    Also look at your page title, make your headline the same. Optimize your meta description for your keywords, use anchor text for internal navigation.
    Google loves backlinks, especially from “authority” sites. Try to get backlinks with your anchor text rather than just the “www etc”.
    Hope that helps a little.

    This post of yours is a good example; you only added the question a few hours ago, yet it’s already positioned at #1 on Google:

    I work for the Hearst publishing company. Through its partnerships with Google Yahoo and Msn we have been able to develop a product that is affordable and makes sense. This program I have advertised is one where we develop an online business profile for you accessible via Google Yahoo and Msn. And, through your profile and our promotion of it through keywords we will guarantee at least 25 people a month will come to your website toofor 80 dollars a month with one month downpayment! we also have packages for as many as 1000 people. We do this through sponsored links. If you were to google alone you could do the same thing but it would cost you per key word resulting in more money spent. We not only give you the promotion through Google but, Yahoo and Msn as well for nothing additional, all 3 search engines unlimited keywords and one price guaranteed! As far as my location, I live and work in Upstate Ny. Please feel free to contact me on my cell phone, 518-928-7581 or via E-mail prberk31399@hotmail.com

    Yes, Google does love new content that is updated, in fact Googlebot is addicted to new unique content.

    The amount of new content you need, needs to be aligned with the amount of external link juice being sent to your site.

    What you need to do is balance the amount of new content to the amount of Pagerank being sent to the site from the links you have got from other sites.

    Links to a website are link fuel for a car.
    The better the links, the better the car (website) performs.

    Make sure your new content is unique, Google does not like duplicate content and penalises for it.
