Is The Quality of Content Subjective?
I agree that there are some general guidelines when it comes to determining the quality of content. Articles that contain useful information are definitely an example of high quality content.
However, this time I would like to share some of my thoughts about the subjective nature of the quality of content. It might have been stated before by many other bloggers, but I think that it is important to emphasize that quality is subjective. What that means is that there are many different types of bloggers and many types of readers. Reader preferences will vary when it comes to length of posts, topic of posts, and style of writing. This depends on different aspects such as education, sense of humor, general knowledge, writing style, gender, and age. High quality content simply means content that other people appreciate. However, since there are different definitions of high quality content, we cannot simply compare two blogs and decide which one is of higher quality. I would say that the only exception is if you would like to compare two blogs which try to attract the same type of readers. On the other hand, it would be hard to compare two blogs that have a completely different topics and reader base.
