    Right now for new websites I tend to write a whole bunch of 400-600 word solid posts, at least 1 day. Now for some of those posts I have great ideas like YouTube videos, infographics, more details, etc. The problem is that if I dedicated my time to writing a 2000 word posts with self made YouTube video, backed up by info graphics and photohopped images then I would be able to write about 2 posts per week.

    My plan for now is to rank the keywords on my 400-600 word posts, but go back in later and refurbish them to the big posts whenever the website is starting to rank and get decent traffic, so that the traffic will share/like/comment/subscribe/etc

    Is this a good way to go about it? I am afraid that if I start off with writing long posts that my website will be too thin, and no one is going to read them anyway, not in the first month.

    It's good to have longer posts like 1000+ words, however I suggest you focus on quality. If your visitors like and enjoy reading your posts, they will share with others and you will rank your posts in no time with no seo. If you're good you can write a dazzling 400 word article, otherwise you can write boring 2000 word articles.

    It all depends on the niche you are in and the competition you are facing. If you are trying to rank for keywords with very low competition, there is no need to write 2.000 words.
    If you are in a super competetive niche, you better create some very awesome content!

    I am actually subscribed to your journey thread, but you are doing the same as me, which is write a lot of quality 400-600 word articles. My question is to devote more time on a single article, making it longer, adding own research, videos, info-graphics, etc

    For my easy competition sites I am planning to just go with the basic 500ish word, 1-2 pics, 1 Youtube video format, but this question was more aimed at the competitive niches yeah

    I don't know about dazzling, but my 400 word articles are concise, clear, and either provide useful information or an unique outlook. I guess I should rephrase my question a little bit.

    "Would it be beneficial to take more time writing each post? Instead of writing for two hours and produce a solid 500 word keyword optimized article, should I attempt to do my own research, create videos, and create images and produce a 800-2000 word article that may take up to fifteen hours to create?"

    It seems that most big bloggers seem to favor the second approach, but I am afraid that my website will be very thin for the first few months if I attempt this personally. That is why I asked if I should initially focus on quantity to bulk up my website sort of speak (1-2 posts per day), and then after a month or so (60-120 posts), I can release my genius and work on just 1 post per week, not counting "filler news update posts".

    We mix. Usually build like 4 posts per blog page around 1000-1500 characters, then put quantinty of links pointing to it from variety of sources. Worked well and still works.

    i wuld prefer quility over quantity. a 400 piece of content would attract me more as compared to 1k words..
