    I see suggestions that you have "big websites" for SEO, and you will get some decent traffic from that. And that may be like 100-200 pages. Do 100-200 wordpress posts pretty much equal 100-200 pages, are there any major differences? or should I create more pages or keep building posts? Thanks.

    100-200 pages on a very unique niche like "Diablo II Cheat Codes & Tips & Tricks" ... if you make 100-200 pages on Loans, Lawyer, Games.... don't expect much because the competition is so high.

    To put it into perspective... I generated 32 Million pages of "UNIQUE" content and in 4 months about 250K of the pages were indexed and I was making about $400 a month. My content spanned millions of topics and adult and software piracy related topics generated most of the pageviews from google. I used various methods to get over 5000 inbound links in that four months.

    Had I tried to guess which 500 pages out of the 250K pages would generate traffic I would have been very very wrong.

    You almost have to cast a very wide net to discover the under-exploited opportunities. If you can't auto-generate 32 million pages of unique content then you might be better off generating 100-200 pages of quality unique content that people want.

    Oh yeah... and the adult related keywords that work best are the ones that google's safe search doesn't know are adult related.

    If you use SEO Super Comment plugin it creates a dynamic page for every post.

    Page is better for SEO... It is easy to optimize for a keyword on a dedicated page for the keyword... When you start having multiple topics (aka keywords) per page it throws your keyword density out of whack which makes all the keywords in the post sub-optimal.

    For that reason pages are always better for SEO... (and by SEO I mean placing well in the SERPs)

    posts have value if you are using ping services and updating regularly. If you have truly unique content and non-spammy articles and post 1-2 articles in the morning and afternoon everyday religiously then you can submit your site to Google News as a unique news provider. Not a lot of people, including most black hatters realize this. It is like all the traffic with 1/100th of the competition.

    So posts are often better if you just want traffic.

    Proper SEO is a 2+ year game. Most black hat operations skip SEO and just use traffic building techniques... The post methods only generates traffic while you invest time in making posts... if you stop for a month the traffic is gone. Proper SEO is much longer lasting and slowly builds value in the brand and website. SEO traffic is slow to come but slow to fade and provides some stability. Like I said earlier... blackhats usualy don't care about long term brand building and expect to throw away their websites at a fairly frequently clip. Black hats usually want to generate traffic while staying off the radar.

    I guess what I'm actually saying is that it totally depends on what your goals are.
