Do you find that high quality in-depth articles do better than less introspective, shorter articles?
Do you find that higher quality in-depth articles do better than less introspective, shorter articles based only on good keywords?
Absolutely - but you benefit by doing both detailed writing and keyword research. I try to think of who I want my information to benefit and then when I form my titles and content I try to include phrases and words that would match what they are searching for.
After this, I work hard to develop content that is meaningful and has purpose. I tend to stick to subjects I know a lot about and I always focus on what can people actually use and be compelled to share.
My two best performing hubs are very extensive - very detailed, but broken down into workable steps. My hub on how to restore an image in Photoshop is a good example of something keyword researched and written to be meaningful - the best of both worlds and it has had many views and was also a hub of the day.
I believe we are getting to a place where Google and other search engines are valuing and able to sniff out higher quality content. Keyword stuffing never works - if your writing isn't convincing or engaging people aren't going to stick around long enough for it to pay off.
ChristinS, just wanted to say that is one of the best answers I have seen to any question asked here. Voted up and thank you:-)
I voted up the ChristinS answer, too. And, thanks for giving us the information about your Hub of the day.
Oh yes, no doubt about it, however it's not true every-time but usually it does share practical tips!
So read & rate them!
