    Is it better to write less articles but target keywords or have a bigger quantity of articles that don't target keywords?

    ie. article targetting "how to lose weight"
    vs
    Multiple articles that aren't really optimized for targeting specific keywords?

    Having keyword targeted articles can bring you lots of visitors, but you still need to SEO those pages to rank, especially if you target high competition keywords.
    If you have tons of articles that aren't optimized for a specific keywords you will still get quite a few visitors, mostly for long tails, however you don't need to SEO them.

    I agree with you. Yes, having keyword targeted articles is better than having tons of articles which are not keyword targeted.

    From what I have read about seo I think it is better to target keywords. How else search engines will know what your website is about?

    Quality over quantity is always a good rule of thumb.

    But it will still come down to the SEO on the articles at the end of the day.

    Keep it targeted. And yes, the more targeted articles - the better for your website

    regular posting with minimal keyword density and 400 words length is better.

    Google like to see informative long quality keyword specific content. If you want your website to rank for a specific term you need to post a lot of content in your blog relevant to your Primary Keyword. I would say that each blog post be at least 500 Words or more.

    I think this is a pretty silly question ...

    So here's an equally silly answer...

    Blue. Because it's too early for pancakes.

    Go for keyword rich articles and long tail keywords , and don't make it short , try to make 1000 words content will make it authority respect.
    On the other hand SEO is equally important beside that , there will be less effective.

    What if they're mostly all extremely hard keywords? I don't plan on doing much offsite seo. At least half of my traffic is social media. Does this make a difference?

    converting social traffic can be a bit more difficult than targeted traffic from a search engine, of course there are exceptions to every rule. I guess it would depend on the niche you are marketing
