    Hi mates.

    I have a site running in wordpress which reached 10.000 posts in less than a month.

    I spect to have 100k posts if I speed it up in next months.

    Will I have problems with wordpress handling something so big?
    Should I cache pages longer than usual?
    Will google cap my indexed pages if all is unique content?
    Any experiences with same kind of site? What about organic traffic stats?


    Thank you guys!

    Just readed last part sorry. Yes it is on shared hosting atm, will I have problems with them?

    I´m slowly posting from local computer, only text & no image posts, so posting is not a problem, just huge database and wordpress performance

    Wordpress is an awesome CMS and I am yet to face any problem with my shared hosting and wordpress.

    Just incase your site grows too large in future, you can move it to dedicated or vps.

    And do post some images in your blogposts. Makes them look good :)

    Also make sure you use a good caching plugin.

    Hey,

    I had a wordpress article directory with 28000 articles and 15000 users. The mysql database is becoming pretty huge (300mb+). Keep contact with your hoster. A lot have automatic restrictions in the volume. My hoster upgraded it for free to 600mb limit. Another problem is like the users before mentioned that you have to optimize your database. Otherwise it could become pretty slow. Another point is that it is getting more difficult with export your content from wordpress directly, cause of the export restrictions. So you have to do it over the normal hoster backups (you hopefully doing anyway) or directly over sql tasks.

    Kind regards
