    Adding to articles over time

    What do you guys think about publishing relatively short articles just to get indexed and get more content on your site and then adding to the article over time to eventually make it a good sized article. For example, maybe publishing a 200 word article but adding paragraphs over days, weeks or months to eventually get a 500-1000 or 1000+ word article. Is there any downside for SEO or in terms of creating a negative perception amongst visitors?

    This is a very cool experiment we should try out. Maybe someone has experience in this?? We could wait for some answers.

    No, I think that would have a pretty positive effect, actually.

    My only worry is that, if one of the dreaded Google Quality Rater's stops by your web site while the "mini" content is in place -- you can be totally screwed.

    Even your short initial content must be good and useful.

    I have three domains which appear to be permanently banned from Google because I put up "temporary" content on them.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    I'm reading the 'quality raters guideline' doc that was leaked a while back. ( Is it still considered reliable?)

    Found this in it:

    Amount of Information Available
    If there is a lot of information available on the Web for the query, then a page with just a link or a short article is
    not a good search result. If there is very little information available, you may consider the page to be a good
    result.
