We are always lead to believe, generating quality content is essential for our online success, it is often said; if you have quality content, readers along with money will follow.
However, having devoted quite a bit of my effort and resources in trying to generate quality content for my websites, I have sadly discovered, this just isnâ€™t always the case. Here are few reasons why I believe, quality content is bad!
4. Hard to generate: Letâ€™s face it, generating good quality content, whether text, image, video, song or software, takes more effort than run of the middle stuff.
3. Limits user participation: Letâ€™s face it, if your article provides your readers every bit of information they are looking for, it will just become F.A.Q.. While this might be good for how-to websites and blogs, but for a forum it will severely limit user participation.
2. Content theft: Thatâ€™s right, if you write a good article or produce a magnificent photo, chances are, some one will copy and paste it on his/her site/blog. After all who on earth would want to copy mediocre content?
1. Bad at revenue generation: Lets face it; if your article isnâ€™t compelling users to buy a product through affiliate networks, it might just be bad for your revenue. After all if you manage to satisfy your audienceâ€™s thirst for information, what incentive they have to click on advertisements or use that google search box you got on your website?
