Quality Vs. Quantity.What is your take?

    Do you think that writing 2-3 quality hubs per week is the right approach or its all about the quantity because the more hubs you write the more traffic you can get to your website (I guess so!)

      I think that quality is the best. As long as you keep everything original, and new, Lord Google, Lady Yahoo, and Baby Bing will love to put it in their search engines. You can then redirect this traffic to your website. Whereas if you make 15 hubs that are nothing but crap, then they wont get ranked by the search engines, and you wont get any traffic to your website
      I hope this helps!

        You'd be surprised how easily lots of "crap" ranks. 

        Throw up a blank WordPress blog with properly SEO'd domain, URL, title, and H1 tag for a low competition keyword/phrase and you can easily rank on the first page of Google.

        GoogleBot cannot differentiate between quality and crap, only relevancy.

        It doesn't matter as long as you backlink all your hubs you should be in good shape.

        Your "quality" hub is nothing if you don't have the traffic. Google consider "links" as votes to your hubs. If you don't have votes, that means your article is crappy no matter how great your hub is. On the other hand, no matter how crappy your article is, if it got links pointing to it, google will think your hub has a good content. Google spiders can't read articles you know.

        When writing a hub to earn money:
        *write both for the google spiders and your readers. (Remember onpage SEO and make sure your articles can be read and understood by human)

        *Mind your bounce back rate  (Don't publish ridiculously crappy article unless it's only for backlinks)- If you have a hub that has huge bounce back rate, google spiders will think your article is irrelevant and it will affect your google rankings.

        *Make sure you can promote/send backlinks to it unless it's competition are weak.

        *Make sure that it has relevant ads for more adsense clicks.

        *Make sure it has enough searches for months to bring in the moolah.

        That's it!  I could've wrote a hub for this but anway, just always apply this and you'll be in good shape.

      Quality should win hands down! Even one quality Hub a week is good! If the hubber has the time and the talent to churn out two or three of such hubs, then there is nothing like it!

      I'd love to say quality, because I'd like that kind of reputation, but if you're going for money it's probably 70% quantity and 30% quality. If an article isn't so great they might click on an ad just to run away from you and buy the product instead of hearing what you have to say.

    I think it's a mix.  Quality is definitely better.  One hub that gets 100 daily views is better than 20 hubs that gets 3 per day.  That being said, if all you ever do is go after those 100 per day hubs, you'll not write too much.  2-3 quality hubs per week is a bit slim.  I think you should try for at least 5 per week.

    1. ponx profile image89
      ponxposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      5 quality hubs per week would be awesome! So I think the vote is going towards quality which is good.

    There's way too much "either or" bs in the forums here.

    It's a game many people here play over and over again - Beatles or Elvis, for eample. And that's okay if you're into philosophy bs I guess.

    But if you want to make money then leave that thinking behind. You have to do both and do both well, and develop hundreds of skills along the way.

        Quality hubs, using quality and high paying keywords ,search engine optimized .. ... My head is in a whirl.... I keep trying and the more I try the harder it gets... sad

        1. Cagsil profile image59
          Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          High paying keywords? hmm

          That isn't always the best strategy. Focus more on keywords you can get your foot in the door with and settle yourself into a niche market of some sort.

          Then write quality keyword enriched hubs and lots of them. smile

            Hi, Back to your old form.. avatar...  High paying or not keywords stump me.... lol
            I am learning, make the mistakes, read , read some more, learn , implement, learn some more and on and on it goes.......

            Keywords............OH............roll

        ponxposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        I have tried high paying keywords. Well I did manage to get 2 clicks for the very less number of hubs that I have. But I think I would stick to quality. At least its helped me 60 cents rather than nothing! But the amount of info on HP on how to get traffic to your hubs is overwhelming! I don't even have the time to experiment with all of them! So I will just about try my best with "quality" as of now smile.

    While it pains me to say it, both work well.

    Quality is my tactic, and definitely what I advise. Quantity works well too though, but you need a LOT of quantity for it to work.

    1. ponx profile image89
      ponxposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Yes a lot of quality quantity I guess smile

  7. Shadesbreath profile image90
    Shadesbreathposted 6 years ago

    It depends on your attitude towards the readers.  If you don't care about providing people with a quality experience and genuine information that matters, then quantity is the way to go.  Just puke up as many as you possibly can and wait for the mailman to arrive with your checks. 

    If you do care about the real, living humans who will see your article on a search engine after the non-living spiders rank it, people who will click on it hoping for something relevant and written by a person, you, who has written that article because of your expertise and genuine interest in the topic, then you should go for quality.  It is a fact that people bring an inherent trust and faith to the experience of reading.  They trust you because you took the time to write it down, and because writing is an effort for many people, there is an assumption that anyone who undertakes that effort does so for the purpose of perpetuating truth and value.  Who, after all, would go to all that effort to write something ultimately meaningless?  With a quality approach, you'll still make money, just possibly--and I do say "possibly"--not as fast.

    1. ponx profile image89
      ponxposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      That is a different thought. And I do agree with it. If you are able to build trust amongst your readers that you can provide useful information, in the long run you will surely win smile.

    a mix, i would love 300 hub with an average of 80+ hub score rather than 30 hub with an average of 95+ hub score

  9. xixi12 profile image80

    I would say quality. A friend has only one article in her hub, but gets a lot of traffic because it is ranking number one on google page.

    1. profile image61
      MyPostingIDposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Google SERP bots do not rank quality.  They rank relevancy.  A person can write an atrocious hub/article and still get it to rank #1 provided it is relevant.

      As a test, register an EMD (exact-match-domain) name and throw up a blank wordpress blog on it.  Give it a title, description, and H1, and an H2 tag all targeting a low-to-moderate competition longtail keyword. 

      You'd be surprised at how well it ranks, despite it being garbage.

      I agree with what an earlier poster said.  As a marketer, I'll take 300 average hubs over a handful of high-quality hubs.  I don't want readers.  I want clickers/buyers.

      1. ponx profile image89
        ponxposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        I too want clickers/buyers. But at the same time I also want my readers to feel that they are being offered some quality content so that they will refer my hubs to others.

        I do not want to write garbage just for the heck of it. At the end of it I think a mix of both would help.

    Ideally I would say you need a a good quantity of good quality hubs to succeed here!

      Yup that was suggested by Casgil  earlier smile. Agree.
