How to rank higher Internationally in DACH or any other country?

3The abbreviation YMYL, which stands for "Your Money or Your Life," describes a certain type of content. As the term implies, YMYL refers to information that could significantly impact an individual’s financial or personal decisions. This type of content is held to a higher degree of quality since it is regarded as more vital than other types of information.
