What is considered TOO fast in Google's eyes. I'm posting 288 posts every 24 hours. One every 5 minutes. Each post Copyscape average is 40% ---> 60% unique at 1200 words average.

Wish we knew what Google considered slow or fast.

    It really depends on a multitude of different factors. How big is the keyword market, how many keywords being used,what type of links, what types of properties used, how much content on the target site, etc. All of those factors will determine the ideal number of links built each day.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your post. Listen, personally 288 posts every 24 hours is crazy. They must be very low quality which is not going to give you much credit with Google. The search engines have made a huge shift to quality content with it going viral because people tend to share content which has been researched and written.

    Many experts have been asked this same question about how many posts are too many and the answer is anywhere from 1-2 a week can be too many. Some experts write around 1-2 long-effective posts per month. However once published they add value and bring massive traffic to their blog.

    Focus on writing 1-3 posts per month however make sure they are the best. Make sure that when the reader finishes reading your post that they get all the information they need.

    Good luck,

      I would say a post or two per day would probably be your max. Also, what's the content of these articles? Is it just thin content? If that's the case you're not going to get much benefit regardless.

    I do not understand why anyone puts stock into what Copyscape says. There is no way they have the same kind of resources to index and store nearly as much data as Google does. What Copyscape says has nothing to do with how Google views the content.

    But whatever...

    I don't think there is a max number of posts really. I think for the most part it depends on the website. A site that posts weather forecasts for 300 cities across the country is going to have updated info to post all the time. A website that posts reviews of laptops, on the other hand, is not going to have a need to post more than once or twice a week most likely.

      The only problem I see with that many posts a day is that you might be abusing the pinger.

    Whenever a site is published or redesigned Google may see thousands of new pieces of content. Or it may take them weeks to index them all for whatever reason. Publishing speed and volume might be something that they keep an eye on, but something like that can also happen for "natural" reasons.

    I'd be more worried about the scraped/spun content.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

      That would be my worry as well. Producing a few articles at 40-60% unique is one thing. 288 a day at that level and I'd think it would being dangerous. It sounds like you're trying to build too much too fast.

      Good sites don't happen overnight.

    With this amount of content you will get a manual reviewers from their spam team (have had same issue) and it`s quite hard to get the posts indexed too (i have used many indexing services, built backlinks and pinged but never had more than 1/3 of content indexed).

    Cheers

      Surely you jest.

      My cloaked domains start out with 150,000-400,00 pages and can produce up to 2,000 new pages per day.

      Not only is the 'content' just this side of 'letter soup' but it's... cloaked.

      Yet despite the large volume of pages rushed into the index at launch and then further produced per day, the unreadable text and of course the cloaking - I have yet to lose one in over 2 years.

      By your logic I should have lost at least a portion of my network and here I sit, still pulling a lot of traffic. "A lot" is 300-1000 unique visitors per site per day per domain I just clicked a button to create.

      A manual reviewer would land on my page and define it as 'pure spam' if they didn't just boot it out of the index entirely for cloaking.

      I'm speaking from a sample size of over 1k domains, mixed industries - anything from penis enlargement to kitchen appliances.

      I suppose I could just be enormously lucky, but I'm laying a much spammier footprint on the basis of content production.

      But to the OP: I'm going to assume this is ... semi BH content. I might be wrong, but if I'm not, I would try to randomize the content production is possible. Instead of one post every 5 minutes on the minute, try to batch them up in varying volumes. Something like 2-4 documents every 2-12 minutes, tapered at night if possible. That way your number of new documents per day is randomized as is the creation rate.

      If I'm right and you are automatically generating those documents, your software may or may not have the ability to regulate and scale in that way, in which case I'd hunt down something a little more controllable.

      It's been the thought in cloaking circles that "Regularity In Creation" itself can be a trackable footprint.

        Hey, i just read a article about you and wow! I also have cloaked sites with autogenerated content and they do rank well for months now. These also convert better and costs are only a domain price (i also don`t want to discuss it further here cause i don`t want that the whitehatters get angry). But i also have some sites removed (in the same niche so the reason may be the competitors). Also i don`t want to hijack the thread so if you don`t mind i would PM you.

          I looked into your background a little and see what you are running (it was purchased here at WF.) There are some lies in that sales page... I'd be careful with it. There's a reason Shadowmaker costs $3k+ and you just can't expect the same level of performance out of a $47 plugin that doesn't even let you use the shadowmaker IP database if you already have access to it.

          If you want to shoot me a PM that's fine.

  • I would say consistency is the key here. if you can post 100 articles day then go for it. but i wouldn't post 100 articles one day then only post 5 the next. keep it consistent and you will go far bud

    Wow! Thanks for all the different ideas and opinions. I wish I could safely drop some URLS in here to show you exactly what the content looks like from post to post. Just takes someone to complain about it and the test could be toast.

    godoveryou's comment was very interesting.

    I will take his advise and randomize things - AND turn pinging off.

      Thanks sir.

      Shoot me a PM and we can talk in more detail if it would help. I've been doing the mass-splog (industrial scale spam blogs) thing for years and it sounds like that's where you are going with this project so I'm sure I can offer you a little guidance there. It's generally not for public consumption as the white hat's get... 'emotional.'

      That having been said, I wouldn't close the rest of your business to do this. Continue to build lists, produce quality content with other sites, etc. Splogging should only be one part of what you do as a whole and should never form the base of your income.

      It's worked for 10+ years, but that doesn't mean it couldn't encounter problems at some point in the future.

      What you need to watch out for is creating too much backscatter spam for google to find your site.
      This is semi-true when it comes to splogs. It's desirable to be thematic with your 'content generation' but it shouldn't all have the same keyword for instance.

      If you posting a 100 articles on the same subject your most likely not creating a great site.
      This is irrelevant when it comes to splogs. The idea isn't to create a great site.

      I know, I know... with that last sentence I killed 3 whitehat's someplace. Hopefully they get the medical attention they need in time.

          Best way to have traffic is to offer something of value. The ones who make the most from spam is the people who sell software and support services to the suckers.
          I think you are missing the point. We all know that splogs aren't the best thing ever, but if someone decides to do it then who are you to talk shit to them or anyone that knows more than you on the topic.

          Maybe you'd fit in better over here.

          PS - The real money is made by keeping dipshits like you in the dark about how to monetize this kind of traffic, which is why I have a love/hate relationship with posting here. God forbid you threw down your ignorance and decided to investigate something before the willfully dense and poorly conceived babble flew through your fingertips and infected others with the stupidity and laziness that it embodied.

    I dont understand the never ending discussion about that?
    An online shop with 20000 products has also for every product 1 site/url . Also there isnt much content on a single product and a lot of shops are ranking very fine.

    can anyone explain me that?

    If you are posting relevant and quality content than you do not need worry and even Google said that 30% duplicate content is acceptable.I think you can go with this ..

    Looks like you are a victim of one of those 1200+ words content myth.

    I would care less if I were you, you can't bribe Google but only build trust to earn top ranking.

    Another thing, whether you post a million content daily or once in a month it doesn't matter to Google. Just ensure your content is unique.

    If I were you I would focus on building website for people and not Google.

      It's SEO inflation.

      Last month the hype was only 1,000 words.

      In 10 years each page will need to be 27,000 words, lol.
