Hey, i have a question that i have had for a while and wouldnt mind some opinions on it.

Say you have 100 articles that are ready to be posted on a website, and it has 25 on it already, would you;

A : Post all the articles at once
B : Schedule and article to be posted every 2 days
C : Flip a coin because it makes no difference whatsoever

Im at a loss. If you have evidence to back up C, then i will probably go with C

    B... for sure.

    A website looks more active when your producing on-going content on a regular basis. Rather then a dump it all at once way.

    You'll also get Google bots revisiting your site on a regular basis when producing on-going content that's constantly being added to the site.

    Shoot with B, thats from my own personal success with niche sites.

        I just use https://managewp.com to sort everything out as i have many wordpress sites that i have to keep in touch.

        I'm sure they are other plugins out there can help you out as well. I've seen a couple in the WSO secion, but can't remember off top of my head.

      I don't agree with you Alex, if you are providing quality articles it does't matter how many articles you are posting. They will benefit you in all manner. $1000 at a glance and $1000 in 3 month what will you chose between them.

        I've had far more success in posting my articles/blog posts daily rather then just dumping them all on the site at once.

        I aint bothered about the quick $$, my sites are for the long haul. Repeat visits are much more important to me. I like to build brands, not websites.

        But.. everyone has there own opinions, and successes.

          Short term = long haul

          The tortoise and the hare is a fantasy story NOT about the internet.

          To put it another way, post the 100....then create 100 more....then
          100 more...

          I'm going to create wikipedia....but I am only doing the letter A and
          waiting 6 months....

          I got this amazon.com thing in my mind.....I will post 10 items each week.

          Ebay started and they allowed 1 auction daily...

          Zillow....let's see, I will start by doing LA County one week, then add another
          county each week until I have the whole country...

          Kayak...we search only one travel site, but we will add more later...

          The Warrior Forum! Great idea folks, but we will only allow one thread daily
          to be created....

          Why do you want to emulate healthcare.gov?

          Do you think when the NY Times went online, that they put one news story
          up?!?!?!?!?!

          You are only limited by the time on your hands.

            Your replies are always so pedantic. Not to mention one sided and oxymoronic. Long Haul does not equal short haul.

            I just wish that you wouldnt be so argumentative every ime i see one of your posts. You say things like "I can't believe that some of you actually make money..." but then you go and say things like create another 100, and another 100, and then 100 more, but i dont have that kind of money to test things out.

            I'm going with B. Thanks for your input guys!

              Some people come to this forum to help others and manage to do it in a polite, respectful way. Then there are others who are so far up their own arse, with obvious superiority complexes who feel the need to offer helpful advice in the most condescending way - something which I have never understood. You just have to get used to it online - everyone is anonymous.

            He's talking about articles...

            Not amazon items,
            Not forum threads,
            Not ebay auctions,

            He's posting information...

            There is no need to be argumentative,

            Different websites require different plans, Yes if i was selling items, i'd list them all at the same time. Not information, i like to keep my websites fresh.

            From personal experience I found it best to dump 15 or 20 articles on the site and then drip feed one article per day.

            If you are looking for longevity it's best to give your audience something to keep coming back for.

      I can't believe that some of you actually make money...

      Say amazon, ebay, wanted to sell a million items....someone says,
      oh post 10 a day...

      Do you want to make money now, or in a year?

      There is no logical reason to wait. None. But I hope if you
      are a competitor, you wait.

      Expanding your web footprint has so many perks, from internal
      linking to authority, it boggles my mind anyone would wait to
      do that...

      Only wait if you don't have the time to post them. I always
      have several in the queue.

        There are logical reasons to wait in some cases.

        I work with a few sites that have strong social media followings - if we publish all the articles at once we get far less social sharing and social traffic.

        Of course, you have to work out which course of action will be most profitable - in the case of the sites I mentioned, testing has shown we get more revenue from the slower release schedule.

    You best bet is B my friend depending on the duration or how new you website is. Its better to be on the safe side and space your post to go out at at a sequence or time interval. To way your website grows gradually and get noticed by Google if you post regularly

    B and if I might add a D, go for once a day!

    Don't forget to distribute your posts to social media and engage there. I have a website that posts daily and needs the first traffic from social media - my two cents

    Doesn't it depend on if you will carry on posting in the manner you are posting?

    If you can get 100 new posts to post each week, then post them in a week, but if you can only get 100 new posts once every 6 months, spread them?

    Isn't SEO for the long-haul, rather than for the short term gains?

    If you need gains today, then use PPC and build up SEO in the background, until you get enough traffic that way to not need PPC (but as long as you get positive ROI on PPC, why stop?)..

    Here is another perspective

    Are you going to have a 125 page website or will you be adding lots more articles?

    If you are not going to add any more publish them all in one go.

    However if you are going to be continually adding more articles look at like this:

    You have 100 articles, and you post 3 a day for 33 days.

    During that 33 days you write another 2 articles per day, so that's another 66 articles, which at 3 posts a day is another 22 days, then you have a week off and then write another 2 articles per day that's another 30 articles, enough for another 10 days

    So that's what? your website being updated every day for 65 days and then some.


    Gbot is going to adjust its crawl rate because of all this lovely fresh content you keep putting out and you will likely get your pages indexed quicker because of it.

    Your RSS feed will be going mad too, as well as all your Social feeds and anything else you have going on.

    I agree with paulgl's point about not waiting to post articles you already have.

    Any thoughts about back dating the articles so that you don't have 100 articles with the same post date?

    It depends, most of you are saying schedule,

    But say he wants to put his article about best-pokemon-that-does-fire-damage

    keyword traffic 1million, competition, zero.

    all of his articles are like this, why would he slowly put these in over time, when he can just put them all up and rank for the terms he wants right away.

    thus making yukons answer correct, but he answered indirectly, making it confusing.

    It would be good to get a decent number of them up straight away to beef up your site a bit. However you never want a website to go stagnant. I know there is no proof but think about it. When Google is trying to rank things on relevancy, would they prefer a site that gets regularly updated or one that never gets updated?

    As long as you already having a decent amount up, there can be no harm done by having some more to add on every few days.
