Quality over quantity
First we discuss why quality is important and how it can provide you more satisfactory results.
On the other hand, we will discuss about the drawbacks of quality over quantity too.
The following advantages are waiting for you if you prefer quality of blog posts.

High quality contents seems more engaging, beneficial and profitable but there are some drawbacks of high quality contents as well.
Below i have shared a complete overview of disadvantages of high quality blog posts.
As you know that blog posts require a great amount of research, competitor analysis and some more homeworks so if you produce only high quality blog posts then you cannot write more than one post per week.
Honestly speaking it’s difficult for me to write 3 posts in a single week because i have my other life engagements too.
I have a lot to do including keyword research, competitor analysis and making an idea about the needs of topic before i start writing blog posts.
Not only me, but every blogger face the same problems while writing a wonderful blog post on their website.
If you are offering payed blog posts or you need a professional author for your blog then you have to pay high salary to them.
You cannot hier an author with less writing skills and on the other hand, you cannot accept blog posts from authors who don’t have a great knowledge of SEO.
At the beginning stage of your blogging, you cannot aford a professional author so you have to write alone on your blog to keep the quality in order.
Less pageviews for small blogs..
If you have a small blog and your blog does not contain enough articles to interlink with relevant pages, then you won’t be able to get many pageviews.
Since you cannot interlink your old articles without a strong reason, so you have to bear a high bounce rate at least for a few months.
Quantity over quality
Whenever we discuss the topic quantity vs quality of blog posts, we immediately get a response from everyone to write quality content and i have already shared a complete overview which contains advantages as well as disadvantages of writing high quality blog posts.
So here i will disclose some advantages and disadvantages of quantity over quality of blog posts.
As you may already know that More blog posts contains a great number of pages and more pages leads towards more opportunity for increasing your pageviews.
Whenever you write a new post on your blog, you will have already many posts published to interlink with this newly created post.
This practice will lead you towards more pageviews which sometimes increases your chances to reduce bounce rate for your blog.
Easy to accept guest posts.
You can accept guest posts from intermediate bloggers who have somewhat knowledge of SEO and copywriting.
People will feel happy to submit their hardwork on yor blog if you are an inspiring personality in the eyes of your readers.
More guest posts will increase your blog worth and you will be able to manage your blog with the contribution of some other people too.
Opportunity to get more visitors from social media
If your primary traffic source are not search engines then you can easily prefer quantity of blog posts because you won’t have problems to get organic traffic on your blog.
Since social media followers are enough for you, so instead of implementing SEO optimization, you should try to make your blog posts visual and atractive so none of your follower leave your page without reading the content.
Having a lot of pages on your blog allows you to submit them frequently on your social accounts, and whenever you submit a new content to your social pages, people will surely open and read them.
By adding blog posts regularly, you can keep search engines in order and they will consider your blog is a good source which gets updates on almost daily basis.
If you have something to provide to search engines on daily basis then you will easily manage a good crawling rate for your website.
So what are the disadvantages if you would prefer quantity over quality in blog posts?
Lack of trust.
You cannot earn a great trust from your readers if you have not given solid reasons to believe on your shared information.
Blogging relies on your words, you can earn a huge amount of trust by writing your blog with efficient manner and people trust you if you are confident on what you are sharing or recommending to them.
Simply writing an article of 300 words is not enough to describe everything about the topic you are discussing.
Difficult to engage.
If you are sharing incomplete material with your visitors then you cannot expect from them that they will stay or bother to read your other blog posts.
There are many blogs for the same topic and visitor don’t need you on your early stage, they have number of options to complete their task.
Therefore it’s your responsibility to show them a reason for coming back on your very first post.
Consider your every blog post is a first post because if a visitor came in your blog post by google then he will not bother to read your other post just because you have shown a great reason for coming back to your blog.
No organic traffic.
Google and other search engines are hardly trying to remove low quality blogs from SERPs and if you got a good ranking on the first day, you cannot expect that it’s for lifetime.
Whenever someone will publish a better version of post, Google will compare your post to their’s and only show valuable post on the first result.
This is you who highly concerned about your blog, google is concerned about their standered and they cannot honoured an higher ranking to your blog even if it contains low quality content.
Believe me i have seen a 23 years old domain was getting only 30 visitors per day just because of containing low quality blog posts.
less chances for commissions.
If you have not written a great overview of your affiliate products, or if you didn’t shared a strong reason then customer would not buy your recommended products.
Everyone look for some beneficial tools and products for running their own business in an efficient manner, so they buy affiliate products only if you convinced them by answering to their questions and confusions.
Affiliate marketing only provide you benefit if you have strong convincing power, marketing skills and obilities to make a customer satisfied before he purchase.
Search engines penalties
If you tirelessly writing low quality content and instead of getting your seo rankings dropped you don’t change your blog strategy then search engines will put you in the list of manual penalties.
Google panda and Google pengwan is continuesly working to remove unnecessary websites from their SERPs so don’t become their victom if you care about organic traffic.
Its actually different to tell what blog strategy you should follow on your own website because everyone have different priorities and preferences.
But if you are a professional blogger or aiming to become in future, i would recommend you to avoid any further debate on quantity vs quality of blog posts and only try to write high quality blog posts.
At the beginning stage of your blogging, you will not receive a good amount of visitors but if you will share worthy material then Traffic have to follow your blog and visitors will start coming to your website frequently.
If you run a blog on a specific topic and your blog is only for a group of people then you can prefer quantity of blog posts because you will have an option to tell about your new blog post with your own channel.
