Should I break out an article into 3 parts?
If I've had an article written (by a novice, but it's a decent attempt) on the subject of, say, acne.
It's a little general and is broken into headings such as 'Do I have acne?' and 'How do I get rid of acne?'. It's also a little long.
So I could mark up the section headings with the appropriate semantic header tags. But I started wondering if it would be of benefit to break the article into separate articles, titled 'do I have acne?' etc? I can see each of these headings being a common search term, and thought that having a dedicated page and specific page title might help capture those terms more than headings within a more general article. Also I figure you've got less chance of ranking well for the more general article subject (eg 'about acne').
So the original article might be (hastily thrown together html)
<title>About acne</title> <h1>About acne</h1> <h2>Do I have acne?</h2> <p>blah blah blah</p> <h2>How do I get rid of acne?</h2> <p>blah blah blah</p> ....and some other stuff
<title>Do I have acne?</title> <h1>Do I have acne?</h1> <p>blah blah blah</p> Next <a href='/articles/how_do_i_get_rid_of_acne'>how do I get rid of acne?</a>
