    Hey BHW,

    I know that this may depend on the type of site you are building, but when you start a new website that you want to grow and turn into a steady money maker, do you:

    A) Start off with 1 post and add new content frequently.

    B) Start off with a few posts and add new content infrequently.

    C) Start off with the majority of your content already on the site and update it rarely.

    D) Never really think about it and post whatever you have whenever you have it.

    The reason I ask is because I am thinking of starting a product review site and I was wondering if it would be better for SEO and overall readership if I had a bunch of products already reviewed and posted day 1, or if I should drip feed new articles over a few months. This is not to say that there will be no new updates because I will keep adding new products to the site, but I guess my question is how many content posts/pages should I have to begin with, because I would hate to waste money hosting an almost empty website unless there was some benefit to SEO in the long run.

    Even if you do not have an answer, I would still love to hear your new site posting strategy and how well it works for you, as well as some general tips or advice!

    it always takes a while to get readership so wouldnt worry too much, steady streams, and the audience with social media will grow

    if its a website with information you want to keep it updated all the time, look at your competitors websites and make yours better

    I Started post regularly and try to keep the old content updated.
    Option B is best if you want my advice.
    Add 5 posts at once from then add 1 by 1

    I would go with option B, start with contents that covers the basis theme of the website. Then start adding content on a regular basis, share them on social media and start building links gradually.

    A and B are pretty similar strategy and both should work fine for you, the most important part is adding content frequently.

    I personally do the B. Start with 5 articles and update the blog continuously.

    Thank you for all of your replies. It appears that there is a consensus on option B. However I have to ask, if I do end up uploading say 50 articles day 1 and then switch to 1 a week or so. Could that potentially hurt my site or delay rankings? My reasoning is that if I let 5 articles rank and link to 1 new one it will rank quicker than having 50 interlinked articles on a fresh domain drop all at once giving each other nothing and possibly spreading the authority of the site too thin to rank well.
