Is it possible for a 5 page website to rank in a crowded niche?

Hey Guys,

I was just wondering if you could help me with something?

Recently I have been playing around with the idea of creating a website which will consist of around 5 pages, each with around 5,000 words of highly related great quality content on each.

I am wondering if there is any chance of it ranking well in the search engines over time? This is in a very competitive niche (web design tutorials).

Let's just say for example that the on page SEO on the website was perfect, all the right legal pages etc and the domain name is almost an exact match keyword with a lot of traffic.

I will also be planning to do some advertising aswell, I am just curious from an organic search point of view when the competing sites have maybe hundreds of pages (not as long though).

Any input gets my love!
Thanks,
Martie"

    The site pregnancy.com ranks #2 for the term "pregnancy" with just 8 pages, and those pages are orphaned pages at that.

    Depends somewhat on what competition or niche you've placed yourself in, but yes, small sites with great content can still rank very well.

      You don't even need "great content".

      Look at pregnancy.com. It is basically just a traffic generation site for The Baby Center.

    Like Mike already pointed out, very small sites can still rank pages, just depends on the backlink profile.

          Yes it is your signature.

          You have to go into your settings and change them. By default, for some stupid reason, they have this forum set that other people's signatures are not viewable. So you cannot see anyone's signature, including your own. I forget where the exact setting is, but it is not hard to find.

    It seems kind of weird that they would do that, a LOT of people click those links! haha

      Yeah, I know. It makes no sense, especially on a marketing forum.
