    Hi,

    I am in the process of setting up a blog for our business. The aim is to create one with high quality content which would be written by professionals. Due to this posts would not be posted that often, as the person writing is busy and the focus would completely be on quality than quantity. However, as part of our SEO efforts, we also want to have tons of "keyword rich" blog posts and do marketing to get links to those blogs. The quality of the content on these keyword rich blogs. may not be the same, as these articles would be outsourced to article writers, as opposed to professionals in the field. I wonder, what would be the best way to set this up?

    Should we set-up this online with high quality content and then set-up an offline one, with the keyword rich posts. And then someone link the seo posts back to our website? Would appreciate any suggestions on this.

    Thanks

    Blogging for content is better because it is informative but the other one is quite specific or can say targeted

    Why not just promote the hell out of the "epic content"? It seems like if the quality is that good, you should be able to promote it without using smaller "SEO" articles.

    If you can write high quality postings for blogs, visitors will return to your blog repeatedly as long as you update your blog.

    You need the two. Blogging for content makes your readers to see you as an authority, and are likely to continue visiting. Blogging for seo is also important because that is what first makes readers to discover your existence.

    Why choose one when you can do both? Write epic content and optimize it for search engines.
