so i've been talking to a Russian SEO guy (my site is all Russian) and he said the following:
"it is essential to have about 5000 characters of text on the main page"
i can see the logic kind of, but unless i misunderstood him 5000 characters is like a few pages of text, all seeded with keywords that arent my main targets (currently looking at ones with better comp levels). awesome...
now, my site probably won't win the title of super sexy site of the year, but why should i add ALL that text to my home page when it will make it look $hit, plus, who the F is even going to read it?
I noticed a ton of russians websites have these huge blocks of super small font text on their main pages, and i always thought, 'wow, that looks so and nobody will ever read it.'
just seems like bad user experience to me. and for, it's important like user have super easy, crystal clear navigation experience
what are your thoughts?
thanks in advance
