    Hello,
    I am wondering if how many quality unique articles in my site are OK for stable income (adsense or affiliates). Each article 500-700 words.

    1 if it is 1# on SERP for right keyword.

    10000000 if your site is not optimized.

    On my Adsense sites i get 3 visits per article every day. So for some 3000/uniques I need 1000 articles.

    It's good that you have set your word count for your articles and having 500-700 words for each article sounds great, too. But as for me, I usually base the word count and the number of articles on the keywords that I use. I say concentrate on the quality of your content.

    - Content is always king, Write informative things that will attract to your readers.

    - Use max 2-3 keywords for 500-700 words, otherwise it looks like spam content.

    - Update fresh & unique content to your site that will bring your site considerable amount of traffic for sure.

    There are 2 variables to consider when you talk about income

    1 - Keyword Traffic
    2 - Keyword buying intent

    --> Keyword Traffic :-

    1 article targeting 1 Keyword with 10,000 exact match/month = 10 articles targeting 10 keyword with 1000 exact match/month

    If you are ranking 1 in Serps either for this 1 keyword or those 10 keywords

    2 - Keyword Buying intent :-

    1 Keywords that brings 10% Convertion = 10 Keywords that brings 1% Conversion


    So, 1 page website ranking for 10K exact match Keyword with 10% Conversion will bring more income than 10 page website with 10 Keywords and 1% Conversion

    Add to that the Conversion Value. CPA that gives you 10$/lead or Adsense click with 1$/Click



    To Conclude, There are a lot of variables to think about, and all of them has nothing to do with number of articles :D

    As many have already said it depends on how much traffic does an article pull in every day. E.g. 1 article that is ranked high for a high search volume keyword is better than any number of articles that do not rank for any keywords.

    However, there are other things to consider. For one, Google doesn't like extremely thin sites. For two, interlinking can boost your site's rankings as well. So I'd say, target at least one good keyword, but add other related articles on the site as well. These other articles can target low competition keywords, but that's not a must.

    If it's so important for you to get an exact number of articles, then I'd say aim for at least 50.

    I suggest you using some kind of software for keyword research to find keywords that

    1. have enought traffic
    2. have enought advertisers that pay high for adwords ads
    3. competition of that keyword to see if you will be able to rank it in top google pages

    You can check market section there is some software that will do the job. I personaly use long tail pro but there is market samurai and other popular tools.

    Im 100% sure that you will need not only write these articles with targeted good keywords but also some SEO work to get to google #1 page.

    I appreciate your effort to put 100% unique and quality articles, definitely it will get visitors engaged in your website.
    If you're in need of numbers for the articles to put, then i would suggest you to go for about 100-200. Keep your articles crisp and effective.

    GL for you to get more income.

    This sums it up perfectly.
    It also depends greatly on the type of site you're building.
    If it's just an informative site depending on your structure it could go between 5 - 500+ but this depends on the broadness of your niche, your KW research and the competition. I still have 3-page sites that are doing just fine.

    Having an apple tree with many low branches where many people can pick the fruit, is much better than having an apple tree with a few high branches that only a few people can reach!

    Only articles for MS will not going to help in ranking. You need to spend more money on BL where you need more than 50 unique articles to rank.

    This question has too many variables.

    Basically, it is highly dependent on your niche. Let's say a surgeon niche versus a money making niche, definitely the money-making one requires more articles to rank and entice readers but the surgeon ones is very much targeted.

    Revenue wise too varies from the respective niches hence how many articles do not really affect - just be optimized.

    The CPC rate for the surgeon niche is way higher than a gaming one.

    Warmest Regards
