    I have a website that had 3 pages and was on page four, by just adding adding three more pages it jumped to top of page three. Which should meen that amount of content and pages are important. The question is now how many pages do you usually create?

    depends on the purpose of the website. For my authority website, i keep posting forever. 3-4 posts / week. Some of my Microniche-websites has 15-25 posts, and i don't really pay attention to them anymore

    Enough to make you money.

    1 landing page site can be enough, just as a 300+ pages authority site can be. It all depends on the purpose, competition, etc. Now... you just told us that just by adding three more pages you jumped to the top of page three, I think you have your answer right there. Keep adding content.

    How long is a piece of string. I've made just as much from a 1 page site compared to a 300 page site. As TomKinder said, what ever makes you money.

    It really depends on what you're trying to build. 1 page may be enough, 100 pages might not be enough, it all comes down to what you want to build.

    As many as you can. Focus on publishing high quality articles and you may benefit from the freshness boost again.

    Well, there is no fixed answer to your question, buddy. It depends on the kind of website that you are trying to build. No matter what type of niche you are planning to pursue or whether you are aiming to build an authority website or not, remember that content quality matters more than the number of pages.

    :)You website can have many pages or small amount of pages it is depend on your competition in your particular industry and your budget... If driving traffic to your website is your ultimate goal, then you must have quality content and a plan for creating new content to educate your consumers regularly. And remember, each page on your website site could be an entry door to your business- so create as many as you would like to see opened.:)

    I dont think you can have n number of pages and they would help you in getting rankings.

    Off course, you can get ranking for various terms if you have a lots of content but i dont think it helps in gaining serp for individual keywords.

    Google really likes your site man, how lucky you are :) There are many factors involved in getting the rankings improved for a site, it doesn't depend only on a single thing. Your site should be good at both On page & Off page factors. Keep doing the things which you have done before and also adding some more twist by reading many tut here. It will help you in the long run.

    Causation and correlation are differnt things.
    Just because adding more pages increased your rankings, doesnt mean that it caused your rankings to increase.

    But then again, the more pages you have, the more chances of it getting indexed, and the more traffic you will get.
