To me it sounds like being #1 on Google is the most important thing to me, however, I frequently see people talk about how it is better to write a few good articles and get syndicated to other sites. However, I was currently going to be writing keyword focused articles for the site that wouldn't be something I'd post around the internet but would help get to number #1 in Google. So if I have 10 articles on a site that are keyword focused but don't provide much "content"(things you'd share on someones blog for example), is that better than having one good content article on a site that I'd share and get syndicated? As I am trying to rank each site for a number of keywords per article.
Or would it be better to have 1 good article I would syndicate, and some other "fluff" articles that are more for SEO(keyword focused landing page articles guiding the user to do something). Thanks for any advice!
