    Agree with your point no.2-4 but i'm disagree with you point no.1

    Always have a big amount of comments and there are lots of discussions and debates is not an indcator of good quality content. Do you know i can force people to do debate and discussion? then, i just make controversial post such like this (for example only) :

    Webmasterpeers is scamming the member

    and i just post the link of the post on WMP :P

    Sorry I am not following the flow of the conversation here, I just want to answer the main question in the OP.

    For me, quality content is:

    • Unique (original),
    • Significant (therefore, worth reading),
    • Informative (and descriptive),
    • Catchy,
    • Meant to be enhance by the comments of your readers.

    Personally, I'm going to have to disagree with you there. Most of the content I've seen written on the web is for either blogs or forums where you NEED discussion and comments to be successful.

    Therefore, if you can write content that encourages people to comment, in my opinion you've created quality content because you've fulfilled your aim (to get replies).

    I think the ability to discuss content adds to its quality as well. After all, people love to talk about interesting things.

    Nice point, but is quality defined differently for forums than for blogs, or is it universal?

    Personally, I think it's universal. Pretty much everything on the internet now is aimed to provoke a reaction, whether it's buying a product or leave a comment. If you're writing to provoke a reaction, then by getting a reaction you've made a quality piece.

    I've actually been thinking about this today, and I've decided a quality writing piece is all relevant to it's subject and aim. If you are writing to provoke a reaction, but no one responds, it probably isn't a quality piece.

    So, not all controversial post is quality content, but some of it is quality content? For this opinion, i'm agree. There is someone try to provoke someone and wanna try make a debate is failed. But there is also controversial post which get many comments.
    I think to make good quality controversial post is : you need to have a proof/evidence about something which you think controversial. So, when you want to write good quality controversial content about WebmasterPeers doing scamming, you need to prove it by add screenshot of WMP, which part is scam, or maybe your paypal account screenshot, anything and anything that make people divided into 2 part --> pro and cons

    So quality is defined by the reaction? That is, how well it illicits a response?

    Sorry, I'm obviously not being clear enough. My point was that different content has different aims, so, if it meets that aim, it's probably a quality piece of writing.

    For example, if you want to sell a product, if you can get a sales page that sells 50 per day, you've clearly got a quality piece of sales writing.

    If you want to get people to respond, by writing a piece that gets, I dunno, 200 comments, you've probably got a quality piece there, too.

    I would say the uniqueness of the post makes it a quality one.

    definitely wrong
    Do you know the mean of unique article? It's different from other. But different is not mean high quality.

    Just for easy explaining, i'm using this example :
    People write about tobacco, the article is about tobbaco effect, tobbaco composition, etc...but you because wanna become unique, write about people who smoke in my class. It's tobacco related and unique, but do you hink it's quality content?
