    How many pages is Ideal for a website?

    I was wondering. How many pages do you think is ideal for a typical website? How does the number of web pages help you in SEO?

    More page, more keyword that can you optimize. I actually like wider blog with hundred pages so it can attract more visitor from many keyword.

    100 page x 10 visitors = 1000 visitors (easy to win in SERP)

    1 page x 1000 visitors = 1000 visitors (hard job to win)

    As I understand more pages you have, more visitors you will be getting. So more pages are always better

    More pages means you can get traffic for more keyword phrases. But
    What if keep few pages and optimize those a lot ?

    I have to say that high quality articles will visitors no matter what. You should aim for quality not quantity. But I also agree that the more quality pages the more visitors you will have and thus result to more sales.

    That is a lot of post. If you are in a hungry niche, 1000 a day = moolah.

    Quality over quantity.

    10 lengthy, original, very SEO'd pages is better than 100 short, unoriginal, poorly SEO'd pages.

    +1 for quality over quantity.
    But I am guessing that what you really want to know is what the minimum amount of pages you need to aim for in the beginning. Hundreds of well written, original posts aren't going to happen in a week.

    A good minimum is about 20, you used to be able to get away with much less, but G is not liking micro-sites these days.

    Also, when you do add pages, keep them tightly focused around your topic. One keyphrase target per page, and all keyphrases relating to your original topic. You can branch out a little more with your topics once you are ranking well for your initial keyphrases.

    Another vote for quality. I have a site that have 4 articles only and I am no 1 for my targeted keyword. All 4 articles are high quality content.

    You cannot define an approximate count for web pages in a website.
    It is said that more pages are have better chances to appear in search results.

    In my opinion, number of pages depends on how much pages your website does actually require.
    DO not increase your page count unnecessarily (if you have nothing to offer)
    Also, do not try to stuff content in less pages (extra long pages deliver poor user experience)

    I'd say quality over quantity every time. If you want to rank then high quality original content beats low quality quantity stuff every time.

    Always hard but necessary: Delete postings that don't bring you much traffic since they cost you link juice. One of the best advices I ever got.
