does short content treat as low quality contnet raju89 5/10/14 2:27 AM
I've read the FAQs and searched the help center. 
my website about recruitment results news i need to write 10 more articles everyday to catch every update.if i write article in long length i can add only 3-4 Article only per day.

i want to keep my article length between 200-300 words. i heard somewhere minimum article lengh should be above 300 words. also want to know maximum length of article.

i know short content not ranks well but i don't want to penalize by google algorithm

any suggestion about short content or may need to write long term content for search engines .

There's no minimum length, and there's no minimum number of articles a day that you have to post, nor even a minimum number of pages on a website. In most cases, quality is better than quantity. Our algorithms explicitly try to find and recommend websites that provide content that's of high quality, unique, and compelling to users. Don't fill your site with low-quality content, instead work on making sure that your site is the absolute best of its kind.

Cheers

If you write low-quality content (short or long), then yes, our algorithms and even our manual webspam team may choose not to trust your website.


if any low quality pages in website affect the whole website or not? source panda update.

Yes. If the overall quality of your website is low, then that's going to be reflected.


not all website have short content but some pages. also i update it once a year or more frequently as possible.

Update frequency isn't what matters, your website just needs to be fantastic overall.

JohnMu has already given you a straightforward answer about content length.

As for quality, either rewrite the site in your own language or have it written by someone fluent in English. This sentence, for example - "SAIL is implementing huge enlargement and modernization comes to extend each qualitative and qualitative aspects of its production capability to require on the competition within the industry" - is nonsense.

@ownereditor
how google index if i write in local language ok  i agreed with you  i really week at english but i am improving day by day. may be fluent in future.
Re: does short content treat as low quality contnet OwnerEditor 5/10/14 5:15 AM
I don't know how Google does anything, and nobody from Google is likely to explain.

If you may be fluent in future, your site may rank better in future. It is not going to rank the way it is now. More importantly, who would want to read it? Native English speakers will go elsewhere. Non-native speakers will want a site in their own language.

I think the most basic question is this: what is your goal with this site, and how do you intend to achieve that goal?

No one can perfect with out Practice. that results may be good or bad.

also i am focusing on future just it was half month old. my goal to run a successful website because of i need to test myself. i have seen many of fellow starting website getting results within few months. but i am not because of they have guided.

Thank you for nice instructions, JohnMu.

I have one question.

if any low quality pages in website affect the whole website or not? source panda update.

> Yes. If the overall quality of your website is low, then that's going to be reflected.

shakimam asked you about "effects of low quality pages to the website", and your answer seems to be about "effects of low quality website to something (maybe webpages in it)".
I felt like they are not corresponding.

Hi Ken

Google now gives attention and importance to the site as a whole.  

The site as whole includes all pages on the site- not only the "good" pages,

If you have a lot of very poor pages, that will tend to reduce Googles evaluation of the site as a whole.


You can think of it like this:

1.  If you visit a restaurant which has ten items on the menu and one of them is excellent, three are good and the rest are very poor,  how would you rate that restaurant?

2. An individual customer who always chooses the excellent item, would rate it very highly.

3.  But a restaurant inspector or critic for a food magazine might assess ALL the items/aspects and give a lower OVERALL rating to the restaurant.


Does this help to make it clearer?
