What"s Better for SEO - One Long webpage or four shorter pages?

by bjornbrands 4 replies
Hi Warriors,

Just a thought. What is better for SEO - One long webpage of 2000 words or this webpage split into four smaller webpages of 500 words? I'm talking about a purely Informational webpage.

    Goede Morgen Bjorn:

    this: webpage split into four smaller webpages of 500 words.

    Google loves contextual text links from one page to another on the same site. (Only One or 2 a page per keyword though maximum).

    If you are talking under 500,000 million results in the serps for your main keyword use this as a bench mark.

    2500 characters on index...

    3 sub pages with 2000 characters each.

    each sub page should be constructed like this:

    Sub page 1. page NAME* = contains 1st priority keyword/phrase

    Sub page 2. page NAME = contains 2nd priority keyword/phrase

    Sub page 3. page NAME = contains 3rd priority keyword/phrase

    * e.g. your-125-domain.com/main-key-phrase.htm

    Each sub page should also have the keyword as a contextual link back to the index page.

    With only "one long webpage" you are immediately obliterating 85% of your on-page SEO options. That's a geen-brainer...

    If you'd like a free article on this let me know... (although the article I have in mind is for SEO using physical products as examples, although the principles are the best I've ever read. I just tried to find it and can't right now, if your really interested to read it let me know I'll dig deeper, daag!).

    Only way to tell is test

    what I have found I can put 2 sites up similar in structure and each site will get different results, never been able to figure that out.

    But you are dealing with something that is beyond your control totally you can guide the search engines around but in the end they make the decision

    The only way to know is test and one site setup is not a test.

    I know because I setup over 7.5 million pages and observed this behavior and many times some sites never chimed in no matter what we did to them

    Good luck and happy testing

    Ed
