does short content treat as low quality contnet

I've read the FAQs and searched the help center. 
my website about recruitment results news i need to write 10 more articles everyday to catch every update.if i write article in long length i can add only 3-4 Article only per day.

i want to keep my article length between 200-300 words. i heard somewhere minimum article lengh should be above 300 words. also want to know maximum length of article.

i know short content not ranks well but i don't want to penalize by google algorithm

any suggestion about short content or may need to write long term content for search engines .

There's no minimum length, and there's no minimum number of articles a day that you have to post, nor even a minimum number of pages on a website. In most cases, quality is better than quantity. Our algorithms explicitly try to find and recommend websites that provide content that's of high quality, unique, and compelling to users. Don't fill your site with low-quality content, instead work on making sure that your site is the absolute best of its kind.

If you write low-quality content (short or long), then yes, our algorithms and even our manual webspam team may choose not to trust your website.


if any low quality pages in website affect the whole website or not? source panda update.

Yes. If the overall quality of your website is low, then that's going to be reflected.


not all website have short content but some pages. also i update it once a year or more frequently as possible.

Update frequency isn't what matters, your website just needs to be fantastic overall.

Hi Ken

Google now gives attention and importance to the site as a whole.  

The site as whole includes all pages on the site- not only the "good" pages,

If you have a lot of very poor pages, that will tend to reduce Googles evaluation of the site as a whole.


You can think of it like this:

1.  If you visit a restaurant which has ten items on the menu and one of them is excellent, three are good and the rest are very poor,  how would you rate that restaurant?

2. An individual customer who always chooses the excellent item, would rate it very highly.

3.  But a restaurant inspector or critic for a food magazine might assess ALL the items/aspects and give a lower OVERALL rating to the restaurant.


Does this help to make it clearer?
