    As mentioned in the title, after the penguin update i bought a new EMD .org, 5,400 GMS already created a landing page for it, BUT im wondering whether i should leave it as a landing page and nothing else? Top 10 in Google are sites like Amazon and squidoo pages so im wondering whether i may need to attach a blog to keep fresh content running in. Thats what i usually do however thinking of setting the landing page up and leaving it and just doing link work to the website.
    Would that be recommended?? Again the website will only have the landing page, no other contact us links or about us links, everything is on the homepage. In 2 minds whether to leave it and just start some gradual link work, or get a blog or something running over a period of 2-3 weeks.

    A single page will most likely not rank well. I would suggest adding a blog or article section to your website in addition to your backlinking efforts.

    The more pages you have the merrier - add more content pages and you'll do better, especially when competing with sites like amazon or squidoo.

    Thanks, its confirmed my earlier doubts that i should start blogging, eh the good thing about blogging is that you end up ranking for other search terms and get the searches. Recommended way is to go to Google News type in your search say laptop take a few articles and rewrite them in your own words, quality relevent up to date articles.

    It'll be difficult to get a single page site ranking after the new updates, not that it was easy earlier.

    Add a blog with a few posts and you should be good to go. The more, the better.

    one page site is not gonna rank unless there is no competition
    you need atleast few pages including contact us privacy policy etc
    and don't put any affiliate link on front page
