This is something we spend a lot of time thinking about at Launch School. You need the right pedagogy for the right phase of learning (https://launchschool.com/pedagogy).

Most article writers aren't differentiating their audience enough, making their articles difficult to read for most people. There is a huge variance of "beginners", for example. Further, most developers who write these articles don't have a holistic learning framework in mind. Lastly, I'm seeing far too many technical tutorials just for SEO or attracting eyeballs lately. These articles are great for attracting attention but are typically technically shallow and add to the confusion rather than help.

Agree. Most of the tutorials I see seem to be written entirely to generate ad revenue rather than actually be a quality educational resource. Google's algorithms only promotes this type of garbage.
