    I have a 6 year old PR4 site that hadn't been touched in more than 4 years, up until a month ago. For the last month I've added over 50 new high quality, unique, from-scratch articles totaling over 50,000 words.

    There has been no real increase in traffic at this point and I'm hoping somebody can give me a little insight, or at least an opinion. My online experience is fairly extensive but my knowledge of SEO specifically is definitely limited, so I want to now how long a high PR site needs to be updated with quality content before search engine traffic will start to build.

    Thanks for your time.

    It is not just about the amount of content. There is on-page and off-page SEo, trust etc..

    Ok. So check where your site stands for your targeted keywords. That is the first thing you need to do. You cannot expect traffic when you are sitting on a Page 5

    You can engage with your targeted audience via Social Media. Monthly you need to publish 100 - 200 tons of content and social signals too. If you're ready to accept guest post. Try out MBG (Myblogguest) Site. You'll get relevant traffic and high quality content (Tons of Content).

    Try out. Cheers !!

    Yes I do rank for a few keywords, but I am currently building my list of targeted keywords as I make new content. The site previously had only 62 articles but none of them were/are ranking because the site was left stagnant for over 4 years.

    I am aware of all that, however, I (perhaps out of ignorance) assumed that, if the site has maintained a PR4 status for several years without being maintained, that the on-page and off-page seo must be acceptable at least. And I do know all of the basic rules for on-page seo, but perhaps I'm giving the PR4 ranking alone too much credit? There are not many direct competitors for the site in question who have a PR ranking higher than mine so I assumed that slowly building traffic off of quality content would be feasible.

    Do yourself a favor and stop talking about PR.

    I appreciate the advice but what do you mean specifically? PR can't be worthless because I've been offered a fairly substantial amount of money for the site on two separate occasions that I didn't solicit. If people are reaching out to me on their own, there must be some value in it.

    It is always good to have PR. But don't expect it to sit on the top spot as it is a PR4.
