SEO on a Website

My friend Scott and I were talking today while eating pastrami burgers. (No tomatoes, btw.)  I asked him what he thought about the idea of having at least 1,000 words on a website to begin helping a website to have really good SEO.  Scott countered with the statement that the more pages that are in a website helps SEO go up more than the amount of words.

After he said that, I agreed with him.  It makes sense.

A page or multiple pages can have thousands of words on each of them, but the more pages that have to be crawled through the longer it takes to get off a website and on to the next one.

I’m not any kind of expert here, but there is some truth to that which resonates in my mind.

Anyone disagree?  Agree?

    Having quantity of words isn’t necessarily what is important. You need RELEVANT keyword rich content that isn’t too repetitive. Yeah, lots of words will get you a quick bump but you will end up getting sandboxed if all you have is content heavy websites.

    There are lots of other things that make Google crawl a little better like removing extensions to your sites (no .html, .php, etc.) and other “secrets”.

    Anyway, just remember Google is like a hard to get woman….you just have to keep trying until you find something that works!
