I my book visibility is included in the 'quality' of a site. In the Google world quality-sites are linked to by others sites. So quality leads to good ranking.
Sites that updates frequently and is of good quality ranks well. Sites thanks updates frequently but is of bad quality ranks badly. Why would Google then enhance this last category - noone find them worth linking to?
(I know good sites that ranks poorly. But in the mindset of Gogle PR this does not matter)
Check out the #4 result in this search query:http://www.google.co...en&q=antler art
This is a highly visible site. Is it a good site?
And I could show you 1000 good sites that are nowhere to be found in SERPs. There's no direct relationship between quality and ranking.
I’ve said this before (at this forum even… a few times, probably). The day’s coming when SEs will be looking beyond content, into things like visual appeal, usability, etc.
