In link building, blogs and articles are two of the most important strategies in building link back to your website. You write your blogs and articles, and then you submit them to article submission sites with back links to your original website. However, now the question is, when you blog or write, which one do you prioritize, quality or quantity?

Quality

For me, this is significant to prioritize. And I know some other bloggers and writers also say the same, that it is important to maintain quality in your blog or article content. Some people say, “No need to blog and write everyday. As long as you can maintain quality, few a week have been quite enough.” I believe it is definitely true. What’s writing everyday if you just write anything without quality?

I’ve experienced that it is sometimes hard to find a new fresh and interesting topic everyday to write. I am sure that although you cannot make it everyday and just make few in one week, it is still helping you in gaining traffic as long as you write with good quality content.

Quantity

As some people are sure it is better to maintain quality more than quantity, some others are sure that it is significant to write or blog everyday and submit everyday. They are still sure that the more you have for blogs and articles, the more back links you get to your website, which means the more traffic you drive to your site.

This is not a wrong idea. You can and should write everyday if you are sure that you can still maintain the quality of your blogs and articles. If you are able to do that, then I will tell you that both quality and quantity are important.

What’s Actually My Point?

From all these, I will conclude that the most important in writing and blogging is quality. However, when you can combine both quality and quantity in your articles and blogs, it is always a better idea.

We often hear the term No Follow and Do Follow when it is related to Page Rank increase purposes as there are some websites that allow Do Follow while others do not and choose to remain No Follow. However, what do the terms mean and how do they affect the Page Rank?

Do Follow

Do Follow websites mean that the websites are passing page rank when there are people do some activities in them such as like forum postings or blog comments. So, when you post any to these Do Follow websites with back links to your website, you are able to increase your own website page rank as the websites allow it by removing the No Follow Tags.

As the Do Follow website owners, this will result on you having to pass and share page rank to those who post in your website. There will be no bad effect if those posters do not have bad credibility and are not spammers. However, what if they are? If they are; consequently, your website page rank will decrease as search engines surely do not like spammers.

Furthermore, as the ones who post in the Do Follow websites, it enables you to gain higher page rank by posting to these websites as they are passing page rank when there are links back to your own websites. But it is better that you do not misuse this chance to do spamming activities.

No Follow

No Follow websites mean they have insert No Follow tags in their websites so they do not pass page rank when there are somebody posting anything to their websites with back links. With the No Follow tags activated, there are effects for both the websites owners and the visitors who post.

For the No Follow website owners, they do this so it doesn’t attract spammers or page rank hunters to post there as I believe you will not be attracted to post in No Follow websites when you are in the need to increase page rank. Additionally, by using No Follow tags, they don’t lose their precious Page Rank to others as they can keep it all for them.

For those who post, as it has been mentioned just now, No Follow websites will not help you at all to gain page rank as they are not sharing it. If you are willing to gain page rank, it is better to find Do Follow blogs or forums websites so you are not wasting your time. However, if you are just looking for traffic or having any no intention at all, then you can keep on posting in No Follow websites.

So, what I will ask now is, which one will be your choice and what will be your purposes?

WordPress, the most popular blogging tool ever that I’ve ever known. Everybody who writes blogs mostly use it as their blogging tool, either it is from WordPress.com or WordPress.org. Wait! Are there two wordpresses? Yes, there are. However, both are really WordPress original. Then, what’s the difference and why are there two? Let me throw away all the confusion below.

WordPress.com

WordPress.com is a commercial enterprise website with full-time developers, designers and support agents. Using WordPress.com, you can setup your blogs easier and free of charge. You get your own wordpress subdomain like xxx.wordpress.com by just signing up an account. Then, everything is taken care for you, including setup, upgrades, backups, and security.

What is even better is that your blog is located on hundreds of servers, meaning that it is impossible to  go down due to high traffic. Your posts are safe too as they are backed up automatically. Additionally, you get extra traffic from blogs of the day and tags or find bloggers that have similar mind to yours using tag and friend surfer.

WordPress.com has secured login using SSL so no one can get your account access even when you use wi-fi. It also offers more than 70 attractive themes that keep adding each day and you’re able to edit the CSS. The only little minus is only you can’t run a custom theme; but honestly, the features are all good.

WordPress.org
On the other hand, WordPress.org  is a free blogging software, which now the latest version is WordPress 2.71. Using this free software, you can create and setup your own blog plus install themes and plugins, run advertisements, edit the database, or even modify the PHP source codes.

And to be able to have all these, you just need a good web host to host your blog site. However, please remember as this is downloadable software, it requires more technical knowledge for you to master in order to set up and run it smoothly.

For backups, you may need to handle your own backups and when there is newer version of WordPress, you need to upgrade the software manually. But don’t worry! Now, there is an auto-updating tool to upgrade it automatically. But when you get very high traffic, you site might possibly go down unless you have a robust web hosting setup and environment.

Briefly speaking, you have now seen that both WordPress.com and WordPress.org have their own features so, you can decide youself the best version for your blogs and articles.
