Purpose Site / Content

It is important for a site content to fulfill a unique purpose, otherwise the contents of the site can be considered to have no purpose and therefore be considered low quality.
The purpose of a website should be specific, generalities do not benefit, especially when it's a site that has a specific/expert name.
E.g. Domain with specific name specific-name-for-shoes.info and has content for anything other than shoes or has minimum content for the specific topic ranked as page without purpose or low-quality website.
Low quality content and without purpose are also pages that have a large document, but without saying anything (essential?)
Pages with inaccuracies or pages whose sole purpose is the advertising or income from affiliates.
Pages where the content has poor grammar, spelling mistakes or are unreadable.
Pages where broadcast content through RSS, where they present as their own and do not specify that it is news aggregator.

Also, do not correct content is content that is irrelevant, inadequate content, content in general or vague information, content that is double.
