    I'm attacking 20 keywords (don't ask why lol), and I'm setting a 3 month strategy for SEO. I'm wondering if 160 all original, unique, 500 word and SEO optimized articles are enough (52 articles per month).

    I'm guessing 15 should go on the site,

    and the other 37 will be submitted to ezine, squiddo, etc per month.

    And I'm trying to figure out how to build tier backlinks with those?


    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Dude,

    First of all, it comes down to what sorta' competition yu have for those KWs. I've had clients rank with 5 good articles if the competition was low enough.

    More importantly, having them all around 500 words is a HUMONGOUS footprint. Mix things up a bit. Have some of them around 400 words, some of them around 700 words, things like that.

    As stated it all depends on your keywords. How you do your backlinks has much more of an influence on your rankings than your on-page stuff... The on-page is only the starting point.

    Depending on your niche and keywords you could be competing with people (like me) who generate thousands of pages per day and will swamp your 165 articles. But if you driving good enough backlinks to your articles then you could still rank and get traffic. So it all depends.

    Ok so you are saying really good spun articles beats original, unique good articles?? I'm planning on targeting 5-10 keywords, and yeah, I'll make some different like 400 words, 500, etc.

    The niche I'm picking is difficult and competitive, but is there anything I'm missing out on that I can take advantage of?

    Wow, any tips or things you suggest? The only difference is we are not using a EMD.

    I usually through 50 articles to any of my site which is in a niche that gets 5000+ exact searches/month. Only 15 articles on money site isn't a good idea in my opinion!

    On the other use of unique articles, you are good!

    I actually meant per month, maybe more. I mean I dont want google to over-penalize me for posting too much at once.

    If you articles and contents has that much strength to do seo for that then you obviously can do that.
    Make sure that you would get that much competition with your keywords.

    Hello,

    OP brought a good question, how much better will he do against well spun articles? Is there a big difference?
