I have a mind-bender question for you – Which one do you prefer for your blog – Quality versus Quantity? Confused!! Right? If you don’t focus on the quality then your blog readers will not notice your articles and if you don’t focus on the quantity then search engines will ignore your blog.

I will make the justification for quality versus quantity by presenting the importance and the outcomes if any of them is missed out.
