    Hi Guys,

    For a new wordpress blog, and long term, what is a safe frequency to update a blog to avoid being slapped by google?

    There is no general rule to this as it depends on many factors. For your typical affiliate sblog I would say one post every 3 weeks is just sufficient to maintain your status provided your link velocity doesn't turn negative.

    I'm starting a pinterest style blog, so it takes minutes to construct a 'post'.

    Do you think updating my blog every hour or so looks spammy?

    The key is consistency not speed.

    If you update your blog less than weekly, it will be hard to build up a good body of work.

    Once every three weeks? Everyone has their preferences, but over 4 months that might be beneficial. From my experience, at least one post per week is sufficient and effective.
