Big vs. smaller content site

Hello,

I start a website now, and I plan to keep adding content to my website, or let other webmasters distribute their content on my website.

I want to ask a question that the big content site or the smaller one which one is better?

The big site, for example: news portal like website, and the smaller like a personal blog.

Which one is better for readers and search engine?

By the way, which one is better to use for earning money from adsense?

IMHO, it's all relative. If you have a small site with quality content, it will do far better than a large site with irrelevant/meaningless or repetitive content. And the resverse also holds true. I am sure statistics will back me up.

I define good content as content that is:

1. Original
2. Well written
3. Interesting
4. Of value

Whether it's on a site with one page or a million pages doesn't matter. If it's got those 4 things it'll never let you down.

Does article or content must be longer in order to attract search engine?

I had a website indexed thousands of pages on Google, and it ranled 270,000 on Alexa, although I didn't promote it harder because search engine keeps index the articles.

So there's a question, the advantage of a big website is able to indexed more pages on Google? U see my article directory has only 18 back links, and it still has 270000 ranked on Alexa, and 5 thousands results related to my website on Google.

But it didn't bring me money. I guess I lose my vision of my business in the beginning.

So how if my site has fewer content, but I work hard to build backlinks? U know, it's an opposite way to market my site.

Would it bring more traffic to my site?
